Have you responded to people inappropriately? I mean "funny" inappropriate. Everyday we usually just respond the same answers to people . . . without thinking. We usually have a script in our head to certain questions like:
How are you? I would respond: "I'm well, thank you. How about you? Or when someone tells me to have a good day . . . "You too!" would be my come back.
These are scripted responses that are all good. It's automatic ~ one doesn't have to think about it until . . .
One departs the text . . .
I was buying a Coke and a crossword puzzle at an airport concession stand. Oh my golly, young cute boy manning the store!!! Of course I had to strike a pose and make conversations. After 10 minutes of fun non-sense convo, it's time for me to pay and leave. As he hands me my card and receipt he said: "Have a safe trip and enjoy your vacation." And I had to reply: "YOU TOO!"
What a dork!!! I had to scurry away like a squirrel.
Sometimes, you get thrown into a situation and be caught off guard by the comment or a response made. Regardless whether it's you or the other person. It happens to the best of us . . .
Just like the other day at work. I was heading to the bathroom ~ if you have to go, you have to go! I was reaching for the doorknob to the unisex restroom when the COO of the company appeared from nowhere and said to me (I was the only one around): "Have a good one!"
Wh-what?!!! How do you respond to that? And there I was trying to relieve my bladder ~ still puzzled. Is he a telepath and knows what I was going to do? Nonetheless, I'm still thinking about what's a good retort to the comment while writing this blog.
Anyway, I am sure there are conversations in your head right now that is in a loop . . . you're thinking of how you should have handled the conversation better ~ Sometimes telling somebody would make the voices go away . . .
