On Stupid Boys and Interminable Rehearsals

Have decided I definitely need to tell Brad to shove it up his ass, but politely.

Dunno which is worse: him misquoting a song from a musical at me that has a name in it that sounds similar to mine, or getting all "I was at the fitting so your renderings are wrong" at me about his costume, even though he's the fecking actor and I'm the one in charge of costumes, so he needs to stfu and do what I say. So I told him to suck it up and wear the damn costume in the most polite way possible, so he couldn't argue, but then he has the nerve to keep on hitting on me afterwards.

So, how do I politely but firmly tell him where to shove it? In theory, it would be best to pull him over and have a talk, but I really don't want to do it that way. I want to find a good way to shut him down that doesn't require corner-type convos. But, short of having Steve show up and kiss me senseless at the end of a rehearsal (bad idea all around), I can't see how. I still have to work for him for a month and a half, so it has to be polite and non-confrontational. I will not create drama, I just won't.

I also don't want to introduce a fictional boyfriend. I've been in that situation before, and I can never think of a way to mention it, off the top of my head. And more importantly, I don't really want to be unavailable in general, just not available to him. I haven't really thought about whether I'm actually interested in anyone else in the cast -- I try not to most of the time -- but they represent some of the heavies in the theatre department, and there's gossip and all that. And conveniently breaking up with fictional boyfriend in a month doesn't solve much, either.

I'll come up with something, I suppose, but help would be nice.

And rehearsals are going well, though I think I can quote along to most of II.iii. at this point. Oh, well.

Hmm~ If he's cute, send me a picture, and I'll... stalk him online. :D

Although that wouldn't solve your problems... so nevermind ^^;;

He's not cute, which is part of the problem. Though, he's enough of an ass that no amount of hot would counteract it.

At 1:40 in the morning, I really can't think of anything outside of "You're not cute, you're not funny, you're not going to get anywhere. Bugger off, bitch". I'll try and think of something for you in the morning when tact punches in.

Heh, if he keeps it up, I'm going to be tempted to do something like that, too. But I'm really trying for tact and "needs of the many" and all that shite.

The most you can do is tell him you're not interested. If he's an ass, he's an ass.
