A Nuclear Meeting




Inspected welds

I once did a tour of duty working for the local nuclear plant. I was a lowly quality control inspector. I inspected certain welds for a company called power systems. This company probably employed over fifty people, I was number fifty. I got every dirty job except sweeping the floor. The only reason I didn’t get this job is because the union would allow only laborers to do that.

We Meet in the Mens Room

One day while inspecting welds, I developed a strong urge to use the bathroom. When I found the nearest bathroom the men’s room was locked and a sign posted on the locked door directed me to a different location. At this juncture I knew I wasn’t going to make the next bathroom. Reason I was already in a tight hinny grip condition. A speedy release was now required. I did what I have never done before, I used the ladies bathroom. Soon I felt better. I reconnected by garments and opened the stall door and to my surprise a women security person was standing in my way. She sternly admonished me for being in the ladies room. A co-worker, a she person informed on me. I told her I had no other option. She said she understood and indicated that security was on guard for a pervert of sorts who was hiding in stalls and attempting to view patrons using the facilities.

We Shared Time Away From Work

I started seeing this security person on a regular basis. You see I knew her routine because that’s the first job I had at the Nuclear Plant. Since she was very attractive I considered asking her for a date on many occasions. I finally built up enough courage and asked her for a date. She said yes with a smile. I was to say the least pleased with myself. We dated on many occasions and enjoyed each other, but never really clicked for a higher status of dating. But it was a learning experience and I sure needed that.

Possibilities Are Every Where

I mention this experience only to show the unusual places a date connection can evolve from. Pay attention to what’s going on in your life and you’ll see opportunities everywhere. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
