I am new to greekchat but this thread was hilarious and the posts about the Transgenders/girls wanting to be in fraternities/boys wanting to be in sororities reminded me of something that happened at my school.

I just went through recruitment this semester, so i think this sorta belongs here but also not really. We have delayed recruitment but last semester a guy posted a youtube video wanting to become a member of one of the sororities, and why he should be one. There has never been anything said about whether he was serious or joking.

Unfortunately, no gems from this year. But one I forgot to mention from last year...

It was second round and either some of the seating got slightly messed up or there weren't enough chairs. Either way, I had to kneel in front of my PNM. She was, um, kind of weird. She kept asking me about percentage rates of people who get bids (granted I know that I was worried about the same thing going through, but geeeeeez I would NOT ask a sister this at a house), and told me in detail about how she got an extra toe removed. She went deeply into the surgical process...any most people who know me know that surgery details make me nauseous. At one point (keep in mind that she's on a chair and I'm kneeling) she leans over and FARTS IN MY FACE! Who does that??? I didn't really know what to say, since you can't exactly tell a PNM "ewwwww wtf you farted in my face", so I pretended it never happened. I wanted to throw up but I held myself together....I was never so happy to be bumped.

Of course, after the farter, I was hoping that I would get to talk to some awesome girl. Not so much. The next girl kept asking me why I wasn't in a different sorority on campus since I apparently "looked XYZ". Um, thanks?

I'm pretty sure she didn't but I hope she didnt get a bid.

Yeah it would have taken everything in me not to 1) say something and 2) not walk away. That is just uncalled for.

I know our girls have like a hand symbol (like 1-2 fingers) that they can put behind their back and the "roamers" can realize that the sister "needs help". I would have done that and been like "I'm leaving now". And I would be so insisting that we drop her at the end of the night.

After the initial shock of reading about this behavior... I now realize that this particular PNM definitely had to believe that she was only "top of the top tier" material. After all... don't many of them believe that their's does not stink?

Just sayin'

Wait. When I comment about someone thinking she was "top tier" material when she may not have been-you flame me. Yet, when you make this comment about the PNM thinking she was "top of the top tier" it is somehow okay. :rolleyes:

I really don't think the girl who farted in my face did it because she thought she was going "top tier". She was kind of a weird girl to begin with so I really don't think that was the case. Even though I wanted to cry at the time, looking back I do feel bad for her, I mean, chances are she did that accidentally and was mortified. At least I hope that it was accidental...who farts in someone's face on purpose besides Peter Griffin?

And no, in case anyone was wondering, she did not get past that round. Our chapter generally takes PNMs with more social grace than that.

Another weird story from this rush that I forgot to mention! Its not a total shocker like the last one...more of a conversation don't!

I went to bump another sister, and this was the following conversation.

Me: (bumping, to sister) Hi *sisters name*
Sister: Hi GammaPhi88, this is Susie (not her real name). Susie, this is GammaPhi88.
Me: Nice to meet you Susie!
Sister: Susie and I were just chatting about...um...men on this campus.
Me: (frantically trying to think of a rush appropriate topic) Ahh, okay. See you later *sister*. So, um, its a tad loud in here. What were you and *sister* talking about?
Susie: Well I was just telling her that I've had SO much trouble already with guys at this school! Like number one issue, they suck around their frat brothers! I hooked up with this guy in ABC frat and he always ignores me around his brothers and older girls.
Me: Um, thats too bad. Tell me Susie, what do you like to do in your spare time?
Susie: Well I really like frat parties. Though at XYZ frat I totally hooked up with *insert well known campus ladies man's name here*. Did you know he used to date a girl in this house? I think I see her over there. Does she still talk to him?
Me: I have to tell you, I don't really know him, so I can't really comment! Where do you live on campus?

Yikes. You made one hell of an effort to change the subject thats for sure!

I just rushed about three weeks ago. Anyway, I was at a philanthropy round where somehow the sister and I started talking about Zac Efron. Before I knew it, we were both caressing the wall saying things like, "Oh Zac!" When the next member of the bump group came up, she looked mighty confused. Then she accidentally spit on me while we were talking and started apologizing profusely. I just couldn't stop laughing to the point of tears and this got her laughing too. The sisters there were so easy going and hilarious. A couple days later I accepted my bid there. :D

Awkward conversations like that kill me! I had a similar experience on philanthropy day. I was sitting at a table with 3 PNMs and 3 sisters (including myself) trying to have a group conversation while the girls worked on their craft. PNM 1 and 2 were really sweet, but SallyPNM managed to steer every conversation topic toward something awkward/inappropriate, so it wasn't going too well. After a 10 minutes of trying to end a discussion about tattoo locations (complete with pointing!!)
we still couldn't figure out a way to get her to stop talking! Nothing else was working, so as soon as there was a lull in the conversation I turned to SusiePNM (who was quietly listening to all of this) and asked her where she was from. She said she was from the same town as myself and another sister at the table, and I pointed out the connection. SallyPNM jumps into the conversation and exclaims "OMG! You're from Anytown?! Me too!! Where'd you go to high school?" We told her, hoping to turn the focus of the conversation to high schools, teachers, families...anything but drunken tattoo locations! Once I told her where I went to high school, she got a really shocked look on her face and asked me "So...do you know Sam Stoner?" I don't know him personally, but drug dealers at small Catholic high schools get kind of famous, simply because they're pretty rare :rolleyes:. I tried to play it off with a "I graduated with Sam, but don't know him well" and change the subject, but SallyPNM was already telling me about how much she hated Sam because he cheated on both her and her best friend, spread rumors about her etc. At that point we kind of let her go and tried to get the other PNMs interested in their craft. Fortunately she ended up pledging a different house, but that conversation still sticks in my mind!!
