Today I grace OT with a description of my social fail
So I'm waiting for the bus to go home, and start talking with this lady, who started working at my job around the same time as I did, who is old enough to be my mother and who was probably sizing me up for one of her there daughters.
Anyways so I'm talking to this lady on the bus, and she's complaining about how hard her job is and whatever and asking me what I do to make everything look easy. This girl (she is like, an objective 8) gets on and sits down next to her and is listening to our entire conversation for probably about 15 minutes. My conversation with the lady progresses from English into Chinese during this time, and I notice the girl had been paying attention to our conversation until that time. At some point during a lull in the convo, she abruptly bursts out "Which [group] do you work in?" It turns out we work in the same "department".
She also begins complaining about how stressful her job is. (Apparently I am so intellectually gifted I managed to do in 6 months 3x what she has accomplished in 9 months). Right before she gets off the bus she asks my name, then demands my last name because I am clueless and retarded. As she's getting off the bus I realize I never got her name--all I know are the first 3 digits of the 4 digit code for the group she works in (I forgot the last digit, but I think I figured out what it is).
When I get off the bus two minutes later, I realized just how great was the extent of my fail. Congratulate me, OT.
