Shhhh, here she comes. Act natural...


I'm sure you've all been there. You walk into a room where there are a few people (let's be honest, they're usally always women) chatting quietly. As soon as they catch a glimpse of you - they stop.

They avert your eyes and shift their weight uncomfortably.


Then come the oversized, forced, fake smiles. They immediately start talking about something else - but they're being too obvious about it; they're talking just a little too loud. You walk by them - and their whispering resumes.

You foolishly look back just in time to see one of them looking at you, whispering and shaking her head.

Ouch.

Without saying a word to you, they totally shot your entire day. All your confidence, all your positive engery - smashed to pieces... And they did it all with smiles on their faces.

Yes, I have been on the other side of this situation as well. Why is it that we can so thoughtlessly carry out these acts of emotional terrorism?

It's been a learning experience - one that I have "learned" countless times. It's amazing that I can learn so much from an experience - and then forget it so quickly - so conveniently...
