"I got hit by a rat this morning..." announced Charlie, getting changed at the locker next to Benny.
"What?" said Benny.
"I got hit by a rat..." repeated Charlie.
"What are you talking about?" laughed Benny.
"I was standing at the bus stop, on my way to work..." explained Charlie. It was just before 7 AM, so it was still dark but the bus stop was busy enough. Anyway, I’m standing there, minding my own business, when a rat just ran into my foot, sort of bounced off and kept running."
"How bizarre..." acknowledged Benny. "I thought rats were smarter than that. What did you do?"
"I squealed, of course..." shrugged Charlie. "Everyone looked at me like I was an idiot. I just said really loudly - it was a fucking rat! Just so everyone was clear why I’d squealed. No one said anything, they all just turned back to their phones like that kind of thing happens every day."
"It could have run up your leg!" said Benny.
"I know, right?" nodded Charlie. "That’s exactly what I thought! Even when the bus finally arrived and I was safely on the way to work, all I kept thinking was - that fucking rat could have run up my leg!"
"What’s wrong with Brent?" asked Adrian.
"That guy that just came in - they used to date..." explained Charlie. "Now he’s here with some new guy."
"I think dating is overstating it a bit..." corrected Brent, overhearing the conversation. "We had one date."
"I went on a date with him too..." said Adrian.
"Really?" said Charlie. "You both dated the same guy?"
"It was only one date for me too..." shrugged Adrian.
"How weird..." said Charlie.
"I met him here..." explained Adrian. "He pretty much pursued me."
"That's what happened to you too!" Charlie exclaimed, turning to Brent.
"I met him for a drink at The Glory..." continued Adrian.
"That's where you went for your date as well!" exclaimed Charlie, looking at Brent again.
"We realised that we were both bottoms..." shrugged Adrian. "So there was no point in taking it any further."
"That's what happened to you!" laughed Charlie, again looking at Brent.
"I'm a top!" protested Brent. "Well, I could have given it a go if I knew that's what he wanted. I can't believe he's bought another guy in here - it's like he's rubbing my face in it!"
"He sounds a bit psychopathic..." consoled Charlie.
"He's hot though, right?" said Adrian.
"So hot..." agreed Brent. "He's the total package, and he knows it."
