I feel dumb

I knew the answer, but in order to make conversation with someone yesterday who’s in the same business I am, I pretended to not understand something about my job.

“Would you say this is a leaning wall or mortar deterioration? I’m still filling out the paperwork. 😅”

I just wanted to make conversation and I didn’t know what else to talk about or how to talk about it without playing games. “How’s work?” always ends quickly and tends to be boring.

“Yeah, it’s deteriorating. And these people always trying to scam and say it’s wind damage. No it isn’t, but they’ll say it because they don’t want to pay. 😒”

I didn’t want it to be a conversation complaining about people on the job or negative tones. I didn’t know how to direct the conversation to, I don’t know, complain about bricks instead. [i]Can’t we complain about bricks instead?[/i] 🥺

So I stood there awkwardly like I always do.

1)I think the interior designer could have done more justice if they had 5 more years of experience

2)What do you think is better, the old architecture or the latest ones?

3) Don't you think we should be geotagging each house to make our transaction more faster?

4)It could have been painted well, you know with grey and white, they used to be my favourite color.

[@518819,Douglasquaid] I don’t like flirting and I don’t want anyone trying that with me. Thanks for your advice anyway.

[@1223924,Sedona] How to make this girl believe that it was just for fun. Was kust an example. I take my statement back. You are too good to be lost as a friend this time.

Please don't misunderstand me 😂

it's always gonna be Russian Roulette when you try to start a random conversation. keep this in mind: let me just blurt out something mindlessly that will kill a good 15 minutes. just stay away from religion and politics. talking about food usually works.

[@1153131,Jeremi] Food, I suppose. And I’d definitely stay clear of political discussion.
Jeremi · 36-40, M
yes. definitely.
Use the season right now if its appropriate at the time. Most people can talk about Thanksgiving and Christmas until next year!

[@1189039,mondayschild2] I could. I just wanted a little bit of job talk but in a different direction than how it went.
