Whenever I leave my cubicle, there is always the chance I will be confronted with an awkward conversation that usually encompasses topics in the following range:
a) The weather (It’s too cold. It’s too rainy. It’s too nice to be working).
b) The state of our being (How are you? Good. How are you. Fine…blank looks).
c) Appearance (I like your __hair, clothes, shoes__).
I will admit that I highly suck at small talk, but the worst and most offensive small talk happens in the ladies restroom. Why oh why do some ladies insist on talking to me while I’m in the stall. It’s one thing if we’ve been drinking all night, but in the office I’d rather do my business discreetly and get the hell out of there. Am I right or am I being weird here?
