It’s the time of Thanksgiving (at least here in America), and I am grateful for my awkwardness and every time I’ve embarrassed myself. However, I would like to not embarrass myself this month.
Today was both tough and weird, to say the least. After passionately yelling about something super stupid (and accidentally insulting a hungover man), I ran into someone I could consider to be my second mom.
Later in the day, I went to work, and work was weird as heck. There was a lot of attitude and snide remarks from customers, more than normal. Literally, someone complained about the carbonation in our soda, but the carbonation was fine. Also, I got “hit on” (not sure if that’s the right term) twice. There’s a minor I work with who normally gets hit on, but for some reason, it happened to me today. The first guy was in the passenger seat and asked for my number and for me to let him take me to breakfast; I closed the window. The second asked me over the headset. I asked him if he wanted anything else with order, and I didn’t understand what he said so I asked, “Did you say cheese slice or mini nuggets?” He, as well as the other two guys in the car with him, said, “YOU!” I laughed, apologized for not being able to understand him, and immediately said no.
All I wanted to do was use the bathroom when I woke up this morning. I looked like a bum penguin because I was wandling (shoutout to by period) and there were about twenty different creases in my hair with large chunks of dandruff showing. This is when a girl who lives across the hall from me decides to come up to me and asks to use my phone because she locked herself out of her room. I awkwardly stood there, looking like I don’t know what, while she called an RA to get back into her room.
I messed up. Someone told me she was trying to get her daughter to tour my university, and I did not have a good reaction. My eyes went wide, and I said “Okay” in a very high-pitched voice. I didn’t mean to; it was just an automatic reaction. Needless to say, I was scolded afterwards.
Update: I fell down the stairs in front of my family, including a relative I was meeting for the first time. Something bad/embarrassing always happens to me at family functions, and I don’t know why. I want to crawl in a hole and melt right now. Today is just not my day.
