An amusing tale of mistaken identity.

Yesterday I was walking into the city to have a bit of a break from my flat (after lying around doing nothing all day Saturday because I was very tired), and walking past a massage centre, thought I might see if I could book myself in for the following week. I'd been past this place a few times, but never actually been inside.

Anyway, I walked in, and it just smelt a bit smoky and seemed a bit dingy, but I waited for a few seconds and a woman came to the desk, so I asked if I could book in for a massage for the following week. She looked at me a bit strangely and said "We only do adult massage.". Not completely getting it, I looked at her blankly thinking "But I'm an adult.", she then asked what type of massage I thought they did and I said "A back massage", she repeated "We do adult massage, and we get mainly male customers". At that point I realised I'd accidentally walked into a brothel. Oops.

Anyway, I was telling this story to people at work (because I think it's pretty funny) and one of the vets said "I'm surprised they didn't ask you if you wanted a job.". I wasn't quite sure how to take that one!

thats fantastic, I mean, how do you react to that? Can't someone get a back massage without being suss these days? lol

I think I'll be able to use this story all year. It's still keeping me amused (once I got over the initial shock anyway)

Ohmygod!..that is so funny!!
Maybe you should stick to getting your massages 'out in the open', like they do in the Central market or Westfield centres...I've seen lots of adults there, but definately no adults!

That is a funny one! I used to (for 3 days) do some dodge telemarketing for an unknown phone provider and called a brothel. They told me like I was scared and would hang up. She then said they didn't make long distance calls, ever. I said, oh, but I bet you call mobiles. She said they did then told me to rack off, like everyone did!
