You’ve lost your mind! You’ve lost your goddamned mind, Charlie.

I’m not entirely sure why it happened, I think a combination of dehydration and anxiety or like my blood pressure dropped or something. I felt fine when she started, however the stage set-up was shitty and even though I was relatively close to the stage I couldn’t see her or the screen they set up next to her. There was also a couple standing super close to me that was obnoxiously making out, so I was feeling pretty claustrophobic. And I had a shot of rum and shared a joint roughly two hours before the concert started, so I wasn’t wasted or anything, but it probably didn’t help.

In the middle of her first song my vision suddenly started to black out and I felt wobbly and I knew I was going to pass out and tried to get out of the crowd. I was smack dab in the middle, and they put up barriers around the stage (free concert in Yonge and Dundas Square), so when I got to the edge of the crowd and thought I was home free to sit down somewhere, there was a barrier and I’m down for the count. Fortunately the people I fell into were very nice and helpful, and got me out of the crowd. 

I got to hear most of the concert from the paramedics tent, but I ended up going to the hospital because my blood pressure was low and they figured I should get checked out, which resulted in a doctor saying that sometimes people just pass out. 

So yeah, not the best night. 

Anyone else have any good blacking out stories? The last time I passed out was in Grade 12 health class after our gym teacher vividly explained how abortions worked (in the clinical sense, not in a religious, baby killing rhetoric). 

Wish I could go back to six weeks ago when listening to St Vincent didn’t remind me of passing out at her NXNE show.

This drives me mad. I used to work in a bookstore, and was talking to my coworker and he just yelled out “stop flirting with me!” at this ridiculous volume and it was humiliating because
1. I wasn’t
2. I got in trouble for acting unprofessional
3. He embarrassed me in front of a line of people
4. And he only stopped insisting that I was flirting when my boyfriend (who is now my husband) said, “dude, trust me, she’s not flirting with you” to him

That asshole respected my BOYFRIEND saying I wasn’t flirting more than he respected me saying it and I was the one who was talking! The whole scene got me in trouble at work. And the most ridiculous part is we were talking about a fucking book. In a bookstore.

One time, my ex boyfriend had a crush on some girl, and said that he thought he might have “a chance” with her.

When I asked him what made him think that, he said “Well, she talks to me.”

And this is why it is so difficult to be a girl and be friends with men who are attracted to women.

Can we also add that this is why a lot of women do the resting bitch face when out in public. Cause dudes swear a glance or a smile is flirting.

I used to work at a movie theatre that really pushed the guest connections, meaning managers were breathing down our necks to be friendly and chatty with customers. One time I was serving a guy at concessions and I asked him what movie he was seeing, and he told me some new movie, and I said “Oh I haven’t seen that, I heard it’s good” (again, something we were told to say). He then said that he’d let me know how it was, which was creepy but I didn’t think much of it. Cut to the end of my shift around 11:30 pm, well after the movie would have ended, and guess who is milling around a magazine rack in the lobby. I don’t remember if we made eye contact or not, but when I recognized him I just looked straight ahead and high-tailed it out of there hoping he didn’t see and/or follow me.
