None of the other girls were interested in talking to him. He was rugged looking, hunched over with a stubbly beard, dressed in rather sloppy clothes, but I spotted him right away and walked over laser beam focused, introducing myself and curious to find out more about this older gentleman. First thing he asked me was, “What made you decide to come over and talk to me.” I simply explained, “My intuition. I usually know within seconds whether I want to talk to a person or not.” He invited me to sit down with me and offered to buy me a drink. I declined and explained I wasn’t drinking. The next thing he asked was, “Well, what can I offer you? What kind of drugs do you want?” I shook my head and replied, “No thank you, I don’t do drugs.” Him a little intimidated, “What do you want from me then?” I said, “Nothing really.” Him, “You want my money?” Me, “I don’t know if you have any money, although, I do think you are wealthy, but there is no obligation or anything I am demanding at this point in exchange for my company as long as I choose to sit with you. If you like you can throw me a few dollars on my next set on stage.” He admitted, “I feel intimidated, since you aren’t asking for anything, and it seems there is very little in exchange from my side for your company. ” I explained, “We both have the right to leave any time. And when I don’t want to stay anymore I will get up and leave and feel free to do the same thing.” That night there were lots of girls working and it took a long time for me to be called on stage. I found out many things about the older gentleman, his true age and all the traveling he had done in his life. He was of sarcastic nature but it was amusing to see a man in his 70s vent and report about his life. When I went on stage he made the effort to get up and sit at the railing to watch me. In the light he looked like a broke homeless person, but the money he left on stage for me proved that he wasn’t broke at all. In fact, he made my night.
You never know in life what you get. Just because how someone dresses or where someone works it might not be at all what you think this person is. Give the different looking people, the ones that seem ordinary a chance, and you might be pleasantly surprised.
