Just had a converstation with 2 people and the conversation went something like this:
X: Eh, I heard you broke up with your girlfriend...
Y: You did?
X: And now you're turning to the alternative lifestyle...
Y: You also?
Me: Huh? Who told you?
X: Someone- cannot say who- recently asked me, "You know Alvin broke up with his gf?" and I said, "That's so sad..." and then the person mentioned, "And now he's also into guys..."
Me: No I'm not!
It's funny how rumours are born. The working environment may be different now but I'm still me.
