I won’t lie, I try to avoid random conversation with people I don’t know, I do that for a very good reason. It’s so that I don’t embarrass myself. I know many who are so good at it they will get your life story out of you with out you realizing it. Me not so much. I’ve also never been on the receiving end of said awkward conversation. Till now anyway. Here’s how it broke down, on the weekend I went to watch the new Mission Impossible movie (which is a great movie by the way) and when I went to the concessions for a drink that’s when it got awkward. See the person working the till was trying to have polite converstation with me, it just that every question didn’t work out for example “Your watching a movie alone? Where’s the wife?”, I’m not married, “Girlfriend then?”, nope, “You should get on that”, tell me about it. Cue the awkward-ness after that. It happens, people working a till all day long you ask what should be an innocent question, it goes weird from there. Could’ve been a lot worse.
