I was on a blind date set up by mutual friends going through the usual “get-to-know-each-other” questions, when my date inevitably asked me where I worked. Besides being a full time student, I told him I worked at a (medical marijuana) dispensary and was currently a pole dance instructor. As if blind first dates aren’t awkward enough, he paused and stared at me in a judgmental silence for about a minute before replying, “So essentially you are a drug dealing stripper. Is that on your resume?” I told him to blow me, and immediately vacated the premises. Seeing that he was a former alcoholic and had admitted to dating an escort I did not feel like was in a position to judge me and my colorful employment history.
