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.
