My Hooters Twin

He was intently staring at the picture on the wall.  Very intently.  Then he'd turn, look at me and move his eyes back to the picture in front of him.  This is Hooters, there are lots of pictures on the wall.  It's just one of those restaurants that likes to have a lot of random crap around.  We have old magazine covers, pictures of celebrities, local sports memorabilia and lot of other crap no really takes the time to notice.  But this guy, he noticed.  And he couldn't stop noticing it seemed.

The picture he was staring at ever so absorbedly was taken after our swimsuit contest in April and it featured two bikini clad brunettes, skin glistening with Pam Cooking Spray (that's no joke).  And one of those oily brunettes just so happens to be yours truly.  Most people never notice the picture, but those that do will generally come up to me and give me some type of compliment that I awkwardly accept because really I don't much like the picture.  Yeah, I look pretty good but there is something about having my bikini bod up there that I don't really like.  Weird for a girl that works at Hooters, I know.

After looking at the picture for a minute or so the man finally started towards me.  I was ready for a comment about how nice I looked or a question about how I got such a shine to my skin.  I was prepared for this moment.

Dude:  "Did you know that that girl in the picture over there looks just like you?!"

Wait, what?  That's not the usual response.  I decide to roll with it.

Sauce:  "Oh my gosh, I get that ALL the time.  So funny."

Dude:  "You clearly have a Hooters twin.  It's the only answer."

Sauce:  "Yeah, that's probably it.  Small world isn't it?"

This guy generally did not get that I was the girl in the picture.  Winner.

Dude:  "Well I hope you get the chance to meet her one day.  Then they can put a picture of both of you up!"

It took everything I had to not laugh my ass off.  Everything.  I.  Had.

I'm currently looking for my Hooters twin.  I have a feeling it's a lost cause.


  1. That dude is such a genius. I hope you will get to meet your twin someday too. LOL

  2. Genius move to keep rolling with it. I had a customer once call me Mark for about 3 minutes straight until she left.

    My name is Brian. It said so on my name tag.

    But I went with it. Best decision ever.

  3. I hate to say it but that sounds like something I'd do. Though I have the excuse of being old.

  4. Maybe you'll find your evil twin; you know, an "As The World Turns" version of you, with a paste-on mustache.

    ps-Any updates on the dirtbag that walked in your friend's apartment while you were there?

  5. That's the funniest story I've read all week. You really took the ball and ran with it, so to speak. Well played, Sauce.

    BTW, I haven't been able to read your blog lately for a number of reasons (i.e. getting ready to move in to college, housesitting, vacations, etc.). Now that the summer is winding down, I expect to have more time to read and comment on your blog. Keep up the great work!

  6. Hey - I love reading your blog and I was reading Failblog today and I saw this pic and thought of your receipt art...sort of. lol. Have you ever gotten a napkin tip?


  7. Wow... I wouldn't trust that guy to know the right way to sit on a toilet! What a dipshit...
