I think I am an outgoing person. Most people acknowledge that. I always take active part in conversations. But I do have moments when I am quiet and listen. (It might be a shocker for people who know me to believe that I listen. But almost all of them don’t know about the existence of this blog.. Hurray!!) I understand that people have talking moments and quiet moments. What I am not able to understand is about people who don’t even smile. I have been in a conference. All of us have all the meals together. As soon as we enter, the host of the dining hall, finds a seat for us. It could be in any table. When I go and sit, half the time, the people in the table greet, introduce themselves if we don’t know each other and talk and have lunch/dinner. The other half of the time, I go sit, the people in the table don’t even acknowledge my existence even if I am sitting in the middle of two people who are talking. I try to smile, say hi, to no avail. They talk, they eat and they all leave the table leaving me all alone in case I haven’t finished my meal yet. Don’t you think it is strange. Initially I thought maybe I am one of the two foreigners here and they don’t know what to talk to me (Maybe they thought I don’t speak their language). But looks like it is not. Another one of my colleague who is not a foreigner was given the same cold treatment. I wonder what goes on in these people’s minds.Do they just hate talking to strangers or is it just a few people that they hate. These are people who are managing a bunch of people in a big corporation. I wonder how they manage and who in the right mind selected them to be in management. I wish I had taken their names so that I can find out how they are with their employees. God save them!

  2. Nope. It was not my breath. I checked. 😉 I understand people are different. But couldn’t imagine people managers being this way.
