Looking at a guy I really can’t tell if he is an 8 out of 10 or a 2.
I wondered about one of my salespeople (kind of an odd duck) — he has worked for me for more than a year and I wondered about the connection he is making with people. Do women see him as handsome? How do men who notice such things regard him the same, or as manly?

They seemed to be answering that they liked the guy personally, but that wasn’t my question, and we tried to clarify with one another in broken English. Did I want these ladies to rate the quality of his work?

“He — not man,” they calmly assured me.
Ah, eureka! But of course, it’s hermaphroditicThailand! Some kind of transgender deal! No wonder I couldn’t quite get a bead on my employee!
