I've got a feeling some of you do.
He seems to be everywhere. You walk down the hall, there he is, wanting to chat.
Now a short chat is ok. Hi, how ya doing? How's work?
But then, there is a uncomfortable moment. YOU know you are done talking.
But apparently he doesn't get the body language, or even the LANGUAGE language.
You say "take it easy" and begin to step away. That is his clue. Conversation over.
The guy mirrors your steps, to stay in eyeshot, and starts talking about his daughter, then the "humorous" story that seems to have no end. All the
while mirroring your steps.
This guy doesn't respect personal space! So he's a little in your face. You step back again, there he is, still talking, in your face.
He's not really a jerk, just annoying.
The minimal distance is reflected in the fact that you need to adjust your tie again, vocal turbulence. Step away! I can smell your lunch.
Later, you are walking past his work area..Stealthily, you are almost...HEY! WHATS UP? damn..You almost made it. You plant that expression on your
face again. The one that says, "I'm in a hurry". He's not reading it. He's not seeing your body language. He's in your face again, telling
another simply amazing story about the window blinds he installed last month.
This time you actually say something. "Dude, I am in a hurry".
eh, I might as well have kicked a puppy.
So, do you know well meaning annoying guy?
