Really... I'm 6'9 and 400+ ... and live in Alabama! I get the "You must have played football" line all the time. I always reply "Actually I played the tuba! Then I always get the "Oh, what a waste..." remark. People are such idiots. I really don't mind the attention until it gets personal or insulting... I know the tall ladies get the stupid remarks alot but people think if you are a big guy, you are open season and can't be offended... Dumb-asses!
I usually try to keep it cordial but if they really cross the line I will say "where is your box?" They get the "deer-in-the-headlights look" and they ALWAYS say "what box?" Then I smile and say "the box you have to stand on to kiss my ass!" And you know... when you are 6'9 and 400+ you can say anything you want.
"the box you have to stand on to kiss my ass!"
Ralph; Love it! I have to remember that line. Hilarious! Thanks for the laugh.
