Him: "So what do you do?"
Me: "I'm an actor."
Him: "Oh wow. Why aren't you in New York?"
Me: "DC has a lot of professional theater."
Him: "Do any big roles?"
Me: : : : pretending not to hear while my friend politely lists some of my recent accomplishments : : :
Him: "Yea, I have an actor friend in New York. But he is a waiter! Hahahahah!"
Me: "Just because he waits tables doesn't mean he's not an actor."
Him: (Finally and blissfully shuts up.)
I swear, I'm gonna punch someone in the face one day.
