Ladies?

Ever seen a man work there?

I was thinking of applying for a job there. It could be a lot of fun.

Do they hire men?

Don't they have to? Like some law or something?

What say you?

Thank you.

I'm not sure, but I know they don't appreciate it when you flood them with applications and hang out for hours right outside the dressing rooms. ;)

I believe men do work at Victoria's Secret. But I don't know. I've never been inside their store.

Yes. I have seen men working in Victoria's Secret. And no they weren't sniffing panties or foaming at the mouth. In fact, I don't think they were terribly interested in the clientele, if you get my drift :)

Wouldn't it be against the law to refuse to hire men?

Although I'd like to know why Baseball Umpires are only men.

I haven't seen any men working at VS, but I have seen a high school boy work at Sephora.

Smart kid. He said that thanks to his job (and the discounts he gets), he has four potential dates for the homecoming dance. I'm sure he's the most popular guy at his school.

I do.

I think I should apply and try to convey that lack of interest.

I smell a sitcom!

Once went shopping with my wife. This is hellish, but she offered me the carrot of a trip to VS at the end when she would buy something saucy.

So in we go and she selects a couple of items, pops off to the changing rooms and I am left holding bags and waiting. Sounds like I shoulda been happy, right?

But no. I was the only guy in the place and every female pair of eyes was watching me like I was some kind of monster, drooling and waiting to leap on anyone who strayed too close. Now granted, I might we be like that, but I was out with my wife and looking at the prospect of some jollies later - therefore, I'm on my best behavior. I couldn't get out quick enough and have never strayed back in again. I had a very real fear that if I had waited any longer, castration was on the cards.

And you can have him room with two woman, one a ditzy blonde and the other one who overacts every line. And for that old-fashioned humorous touch, Billy can trip over things all the time.

Oh, man! That would be neat if it were not for the time a girlfriend dragged me into one in Orlando. All the salesgirls were dressed in scanty silky things, looking oh so pretty and zeroed in on me. It think my skin left my embarrassment, ran outside, and waited for me to leave.

I got even with her when we dropped into a department store where I paused at a mannequin, lifted up its dress and peaked.

Ah, memories of long ago. I miss those days I had in my youth.

Oh, I forgot, no there wasn’t any men working in there.

PeeDee
09-26-2006, 06:05 AM
What would be fun is, while your girlfriend/wife is in the changing room and you're holding the bag, tell every person who walks by (whether they look at you or not) "It's not for me! IT's for my girlfriend!" And say it very defensively.

When I worked in the mall, I knew of a guy who worked the "fragrance counter" at VS. He was straight (supposedly) and was doing it to get chicks, but it turned out none of them were interested in him and I think they thought he was gay.

Maybe I'll just apply for a stock boy position.

After Closing...
Hot Manager: Oh, stock boy, can you help me unload the new WonderWear Lingerie.
Billy: Of course, ma'am.
Hot Manager: Wow, stock boy, you have great thighs. No wonder you're so strong and can lift those boxes.
Billy: Thank you.
Hot Manager: Stock boy, do you think these WonderWear outfits are sexy?
Billy: Uh...I don't know. I guess I'd have to see them on someone.
Hot Manager: I'll try them on and you tell me what you think.
Billy: Okay.

Hot manager disrobes and puts on the WonderWear skyblue bra and thong panties.

Hot Manager: What do you think?
Billy: I think they are very sexy.
Hot Manager: I think you're the sexiest stock boy we've ever had work here.

:kiss:

Billy: Oooooh, baby.

I worked at Victoria's Secret.

Not at the store, but at the corporate office, building their e-Business site, so you pervs could log on and buy your kinky nightwear in the privacy of your own boudoirs.

And no, there were no models working at the corporate office, to my dismay.

A man works at Victoria Secrets at the Visalia Mall in my hometown. I've seen him there twice - behind the counter. He's very nice and very small - about 5'4" or so and slim. Once he had a pink, long-sleeve shirt and tie on, and the other time, a white, long-sleeve shirt and tie. Is he gay? I don't know. He's soft spoken but that does not mean he's gay.

I didn't notice the cameras, but when you're an Official VS Lightbulb Changer, you don't tend to look up at the ceiling very often.

Billy? Not for nothing but perhaps you should apply for a job at a store called "Get a Life" ... Sorry to burst your bubble - but that woman who just tried on the sky blue lingerie for you is a lesbian and you better hurry up because her girlfriend is waiting outside and she could beat the crap out of you.

PeeDee
09-26-2006, 11:18 AM
The woman's girlfriend is three hundred pounds of muscle and tatoos named "Histimine" with a crewcut, except for the back, which is a mullet. She is ruddy-cheeked, beady-eyed, has three more chins than you, and is going to rip you apart.

Run, Billy. Scream "Look! Rosie!" and run like hell.

09-26-2006, 09:58 PM
why is it that two lesbians together (especially if pretty) are hot but two men together, no matter how well-built, are just another couple?

and just curious - do lesbians wear stuff from VS -- aside from TV scenes. I mean, all the lesbians I've ever seen in public or know, are big manly girls

maestrowork
09-26-2006, 10:37 PM
Speak for yourself. I know of a lesbian couple -- both of them are what you'd call "lipstick lesbians." They're certainly hot items, and many men continue to ask them if they want a third... LOL. We are so stupid, thinking every lesbian couple want a man (like me) to join them.

I think women do find two men together hot. Gay TV shows are very popular with straight women.

I'm just saying that I've never seen cute lesbian couples except for television. Part of that may be the small town I live in. And I've never seen gay tv shows, so I can't say, but I did find brokeback mountain pretty endearing.

I've known many lesbian couples and not a single one of them have been remotely attractive. They've been large, middle-aged woman, they've been woman like I described above, they've been midgets (ahh, that was funny).....they have never been, for example, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olson.

It came as a short, sharp shock to me when I got out into the world and discovered that lesbians didn't look like they do on TV. It nearly broke me.

Also, they have a continual fascination with my wife, which I would feel more comfortable with except that every time she plays The Sims 2, her character invariably winds up getting Woo-Hoo with the other girls.

Well, I remodeled 7 Victoria’s Secrets stores in different malls around 1982. they let me work during the day on electrical since there was no dust.

Not once, not twice but several times I was wiring the lighting above the dressing rooms with my ladder inside the room. The women still came in and started to change!
The dialogue went like this each time:

“Sorry Ma’am, I am working in here.”
“It’s OK, just don’t look.”
“No, please give me a second and I’ll take a break.”
“It’s alright, really.”
“Lady, this is definitely against safe electrical practice. I better take a break.”

They didn’t wait.

I know! I mean, what are you buying the stuff for, anyway?

What they should really do is just throw the goods on the floor in a heap. After all, that's the best way to tell what they're going to look like when they're brought home.

I just asked my son about this. He informed me (really!) that his best friend - a totally out there computer geek applied at Vic's at the beginning of summer. Apparently he was told that he could only work stock.

I have a little scenario in mind. Sockpuppet going into Vics' to try and get a job - other guys waiting outside to jump and cry Discrimination! when he is refused a job.

Bored Vic's Manager: No dear, I'm saying no such thing. As long as you wear clothing over top of it, your undergarments do not concern me.

The trick would be remembering to turn the gay voice/mannerism back off before you go brag to your friends.

The VS around here is always hiring, I've always thought about applying, except that I haven't matured much more than I did when I was seven, and therefore don't make it past the front door because there are women in there.
