Happy almost spring everyone!

Ok, I don't want to sound like an ignorant asshole.... I really don't, but something has been bothering me and I would like to make a observation and then ask a few questions regarding Halifax's blossoming Lesbian community.

I work at a retail store downtown Halifax, one that (not by my choice) sells rather drab, "frumpy" cloths etc. EVERY SINGLE DAY we get at least 3-4 Lesbian couples who peruse the store. So of course I make mental observations of people that come into the store, as I am sure that everyone does while in retail (and probably many other jobs) I notice that every lesbian couple, looks almost the same, not only do each couple look the same but in most cases the individuals within the couple look the same as their partner. Furthermore, as a male, the lesbian couples always treat me and my other male coworkers like scum... They glare, give 'stink eye,' get snappy, complain and are generally awful to deal with. (however, there are some really sweet couples out there too!...But sadly its a rarity)

They all look either like skinny versions of Ellen Degeneres or a combination of Peter Griffin from the family guy and the Penguin from Batman Returns. (sorry The coast for using Specific names!!!) The dead give-a-way is their hair cut; skinny or clown shaped they all have the same haircut....the obnoxious square "funky hip" glasses are optional but the other dead give-a-way is the constant scowl.

So my question is twofold

First; These people are so ugly, so unbearably ugly AND they are so sour (they even seem to hate each-other and everyone else in the world...) how ON EARTH could anyone ever be attracted to these people??!! ...Have they been ridiculed all their lives for being so ugly and pathetic that they joined a club of like-people who accept them for who they are and they go along with dating etc. because it is better than being lonely? I just don't understand it. They seem so unhappy, so fed up with life, they seem like they want to give society the big FUCK YOU... and yet they do this by being grumpy little conformists who look like cookie-cutters to the next.......

I feel like going up to them and giving them a HUGE Bugs-Bunny kiss on the lips and saying "Turn that frown upside down", (maybe throw in some Jazz hands whilst I am at it!!) But alas, I would most likely be either thrown in jail, or beaten into oblivion.

Second; So I was thinking about these lesbians that frequent my shop.... for the most part they physically look the same, they definitely dress the same (in some cases they even wear matching outfits!) they have the same haircut, the same, the same jewelry, they have the same 'fuck you' body language, they have the same 'fuck off' attitude AND they have the same anatomy. (if-ya-know-what-I-mean!) Isn't this a most acute and profound form of ego-mania?

Its amazing how your mind wonders when at work!

Anyway, I don't mean to be insulting or an 1000 apologies if I was insulting and if I was an ass! And I am not saying that ALL lesbians are like this.... just the couples that come into my store. so please don't think of this as a rant on Lesbians in general, because it isn't!
