"I don't want to buy my friends" (As many other people also mentioned)
"I don't want to be told what to do"
"I heard fat girls can't wear letters" (This one still is to me)
"I would hate being around so many girls"
"The girls in your sorority are bitches.. you have to agree, right?" ( not true at all and kind of hurtful)
"I would never join Kappa, I heard they're all blonde" (I guess people don't realize when they say this to me that I'm naturally blonde, but doesn't impact who I am as a person at all. Not to mention that there's only about 30 other blondes in a chapter of 130)

Ok, my rant is now over

I'm a new member too, and this is so spot on!

Angry

Perhaps these are more "comments" about Greek Life, but I personally get annoyed by:

"I heard that x no. of women congregating together constitutes a brothel"

and

"Why would I want to pay to have friends?"

Sigh....

I know somebody here on GC posted something along the lines of that being the best damn deal they ever had.

I actually had a guy I went to high school with look at me and read my shirt as he said, "Eye-Owm, what is Eye-Owm?" He saw the "Phi" and thought it was an I and an O combined. It was weird he said that instead of recognizing it was a sorority. Generally you see images of Greeks in movies and I figured that he would have picked up on that. I guess not.

True story: I had someone I went to high school come up to me in a Walmart in my hometown and say "A...Triangle...uhhh....what's that?" *forehead smack*

Related: a sister's dad was from England and drove down Greek row soon after she moved into our chapter house. He drove past Delta Tau Delta and said 'Triangle T Triangle' and then past Sigma Alpha Mu and asked why Sam had his own house. We could NOT stop laughing

Yup, that. Again, my brother was 16ish at the time, but I'm sure he'd still get a rise out of it now.

Definitely have gotten "what's K triangle?" Before.

It's funny. I had a friend who was interested in DTD but he didn't know what the letters were, so he just drew them out in the air for me. I thought it was funny but also smart since he obviously knew the Tau wasn't a T, no matter how it looked.

Here's another: just the other day, I had my car in the mechanic shop and as I was taking stuff off my car (my license frame has my Zeta letters on it) and the guy clearly didn't know that the "O" was a "Phi".

And another: Before I became a member of Z Phi B, people would always ask me if A Phi O was a sorority and why was I in a fraternity or they didn't know women were allowed in frats. Also A O Q was the common one I would get since I do wear my A Phi O letters around my neck.

Some things just irk the heck out of me.
