Another Awkward Conversation
Thursday, October 04, 2007

Don't you just love it when a perfectly pleasant conversation turns awkward in the space of a heart beat? I must be weird, because I love love love it when I'm chatting with someone and all of a sudden there's this awkward pause. And everyone knows that something not quite right just happened with the last few words spoken.


I just recently met this new staff in our office, I think you spell his name Angad. Anyway, he's really good friends with another staff, Sam, who I absolutely adore. Yesterday I was walking around the office, when I ran into these two guys. And so begins the conversation:


Me: "Hey guys what's up?"


A: "Hey there."


S: "Heyyyy what's up buddy!?"


*insert random work talk*


Me: "So are you guys working together, because every time I see one of you, the other one is there too. You guys are like... "


S: "Two peas in a pod?"


Me: "Exactly."


*we all chuckle for a bit*


A: "Yah, Sam likes to come bug me and we'll just walk around the office for a bit and see who's around."


Me: "Yah I do that sometimes too when I need a break. Which reminds me, I need to get back to work."


A: "Me too. It's all Sam's fault. I'm busy workin while he's just up here jackin off."


Me: *pause*


S: *pause*


A: "And by that I mean the other meaning of 'jackin off'"


**Sam and I start crackin up**


S: "Dude, you can't dig out of that hole now."


Me: "It's okay. I have no idea what that phrase means."


A: "Yah right."


Me: "So let's talk about something else before we all get fired."


S: "Okay. We played softball the other night. It was Angad's first time. He held the bat weird because he's used to playing cricket in India."


A: "Yup. I held it like this..." *he then demonstrates* "So you DO know what cricket is right?"


Me: "Yes."


A: "Really?"


Me: "Um, yes."


A: "Okay because most people don't."


Me: "It's okay. If anything, we're the weird ones who stole the name futbol and changed it to football, but we're not really using our feet."


S: "Why are you saying 'we'?"


Me: "We as in us Americans..... Oh, what I can't say we because I'm asian? I'm American too ya know."


*we all start laughing again*


Oh I love these two guys. I'm sure I'll have more funny stories with them.
