Did You Do More Talking Or Listening Today? (#2)

This is sort of a hard question to answer because I do a bit of both at my job. I talk a lot to customers and coworkers, but I also listen a lot to customers and coworkers. I think it may be safe to say I did more talking today, though. I talked a lot. 

It’s kind of funny to think that, too, because there was a time in my life where I barely talked to people. I was always more of a listener, an observer, rather than a participator. However, being in a job that requires me to actually talk to people, I talk a lot more. When you see the same people everyday, it’s hard not to, as well.

I’m happy I’ve broken out of my shell to this degree. The me from five years ago never would have been so forward or confident. It’s funny what a few years, a few people, can do to you.

In a side comment, there is this one guy who comes into work almost everyday after he leaves work to go home. He almost always buys a 12 pack of Bud Light, or some 24oz can. One time he brought his daughter in to eat. He’s around my age.

This guy has made comments over the last few months about how pretty I am and it makes his day to see me, and he recently added me on Facebook. Now he’s asking for my cellphone number. The thing is, he’s married and has kids, and I’m happily in a relationship. It’s awkward now for me to talk to him, and I’ve been avoiding his messages on Facebook. But in person, how do I handle this? I feel as though I’m going to tell him I don’t feel comfortable giving him my number (which I don’t). He seems like a nice guy, but I’m no home wrecker and I don’t need to be talking to other guys that are interested in more than friendship.

He came in today, twice, and made a comment about bugging me on Facebook. I know he’s joking around and stuff, but I have no words to say to this guy. It makes me uncomfortable. I don’t even want to wait on him anymore. Because I get the feeling he wants more than friendship, and I’m not okay with that. I suck at confrontations, and I’ve avoided opening his message on Facebook or even opening the site because I don’t want to reply. It’s terrible.

Anyways, a side note, I reached over 100 followers today, so I wanted to mostly say thank you to everyone for sticking by me and reading my crazy rants and thoughts! I appreciate you all! You motivate me, or help motivate me, to continue writing and blogging and challenging myself.

I have another photo challenge I’ll be posting in the next few hours as well.

  1. For the guy on fb.. and when you meet, you need to confront, that’s what I think, sometimes we need to confront, it’s necessary. Congratulations on your 100. Way more to go. And complete the photo challenge, your pictures are lovely ❤️

  2. Congratulation for the number of followers!
    It is not good what that guy does. I mean you are in a relationship, that’s okay, but he is married and he has a fucing child… This is the big problem here. You can block him, he can’t do anything about it. I don’t want to say you’re guilty, because you’re not, but in this case if you continue to talk with him, you are guilty. Think about his family.
    If I was in your place I would beat the s
    it out of him “Go to your wife you little piece of… and take your child with you!” Hahaha! This sound funny but take care of you! xx

    1. Thank you! (: and no, I thought he just had a kid before and was single. But it says on Facebook he’s married and he has pictures, so that’s even more awkward than what it was before. I’m just going to tell him I don’t feel comfortable with it and go from there. I don’t have my relationship publicized on Facebook (we’re going at our own pace) so he doesn’t know I’m with someone either. Haha that does sound funny, but for real though. I don’t want in the middle of that at all. and thank you! 🙂

  3. Congrats on 100 followers, you deserve it!! 😀

    That customer sounds super creepy…accept his friend request and find his wife to tell on him. LOL I’m just kidding. Don’t accept or give him any more of your info. Is he a lot older or close to your age?

    1. Thank you so much! 💜

      And right? Hahah he’s actually about my age, and I accepted his friend request. But after I did he started messaging me on there and I just felt uncomfortable with it lol. I think he finally got the hint with my day and a half late half assed responses 😂😅

      1. Facebook photos can be deceiving…obviously he’s not actually happy since he is tryna get with you, lol. Some men are just pigs and want to get their hands on every women they find attractive.
