It Can't Be

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 :)  



  1. what a coincidence! hopefully he looks as good as the picture does.

    1. I had lunch with him....he's very good looking. He's my height, around 5'8 but very thin. Profile says 152lb, but I would guess more like 140. I would not guess he is gay.

    2. I hope that he is a good worker, and you get along with him... Who knows where it will go from there.

    3. he's a good distraction for you. I mean.. he's probably an eye-relief for you whenever you feel stress. Good for you!

  2. What a weird spot to be in. It will be interesting to see where this leads.

  3. I hope he wouldn't be much of a distraction during your sessions even if he's hot and all.

  4. Hahaha what a small world. Have you ever hooked up with a co-worker before?

  5. Well, good for you, man... Good for you!
    Grindr does miracles, doesn't it? :D

  6. I've had so many of those close encounters - always awkward - like you know something they don't. Mainly with teacher friends here
