1: yeah, he said 'i'm gay,' and he quit because he had an affair. with a man.
2: i didn't hear about that part. he's gay?
1: yeah, he said it just this afternoon.
2: and he had a gay affair?
1: that's what he said.
2: doesn't he have kids?
1: yeah, he does.
2: that's crazy.
1: i know. i mean, if you're going to be gay fine, but get out of the relationship you're in first.
2: with a man? that's just sick. i mean i probably shouldn't say that. (laughing)
2: but it is, isn't it? it's disgusting! i know, we're supposed to be open minded and all, and i have nothing against gay people, but the thought just makes me ill, i'm sorry.
1: don't apologize to me! it repulses me too. who could ever do that? with a man
