Do you throw up? You look very nice today.

I did something to my back while at work today… Which is beyond sad since everything I’ve done today is do data entry. Which means I did something to my back while sitting in a chair. And it’s a nice computer chair too… I started off with a very ridge chair with a very straight back to it to one that has a slightly curved back with more cushioning at the lower back and near my head/neck area. It’s actually quite comfortable. So I have no idea what I’ve done to myself this time. Maybe I’m just getting old or something.

I had this very awkward exchange with someone at work today. I was (am still…) wearing a pair of white capris with runners and a large-ish t-shirt and my hair in a pony tail. And then there was this:

V: Michelle, you look very nice today!
M: Thank you.
V: What’s wrong with you?*
M: … Excuse me?
V: Did you throw up?
M: … -slow blink- Did you say “throw up” or “grow up”?
V: I said “throw up’. Only girls who throw up a lot look like you do.
M: Umm… Okay then… I’m going to go back to my desk now…

* It was this point that I should have walked away without another word. That’s what I should have done. Curse the manners that have been instilled into me.

Very awkward, no? Oh, the conversations that I have with the people at work. None of the conversations I have with any of the women at work are ever quite as odd, as insulting, as entertaining or as downright weird as the ones I have with the guys at work. And generally it’s the ones working in production, rather than the ones working in the offices (might be an age-gap thing). Must say though, at least they give me good material for my blog. Inadvertantly, anyways.

Questions:

  1. What’s one interesting exchange that you had today (or recently)? What made it interesting for you? (Or just really awkward?)
  2. What things (or people) do you call “baby” or other endearments?

    That’s so dang weird! o_o And sad that a person would assume that you have to starve yourself in order to maintain your appearance. *shakes head*

    1. A little while ago at work, I didn’t know whether to be flattered or creeped out while a group of white trash guys discussed how my eyes were “the nicest they’d ever seen.” Or something along those lines. o_o
    2. I often call my best friend “darling”, “hon”, “dear”, “love”, etc.; I like endearments a lot, and I do often use them toward anyone I’m close with, but my best friend just gets them the most because we are so close.
    Oh, and I use any sort of cute name for my kitty cat. :3

    It’s possible you’ve seen this already but I’ll show it anyway:

    I’ve hurt my back sitting in a nice computer chair before too. Sitting in a strange position for extended amounts of time is never a good thing.

    What a strange conversation? Eww. I can’t recall any weird conversations I’ve had lately although I’m sure they exist.
