I opened up Grindr on Saturday morning. This profile was just three miles from me and it was written in Spanish. A 26 year old Latino guy.
My new trainee from Mexico who starts Monday is also 26. Surely it can't be the same guy.
I message him. He tells me he just arrived in Canada this morning. He is from Mexico. Same city as my trainee.
OMG, it can't be!
I ask why he's here. "A training program," he tells me. I ask if it's at the university. "No, a big global company in the abc industry."
It is! It's my trainee. And I'm the first guy he's talked to upon arriving in Canada.
I answered a few of his questions. I learned he's versatile. He said I was very nice guy and asked if I would meet for coffee.
Of course I won't.
I am having lunch with him tomorrow, but in my capacity as his boss.
I told Seth about this and he was laughing and yelling, "Candy in the office."
This is so funny because often you see a hot guy at work and wonder if he's gay. Now we know for sure :)
