It was the weirdest thing ever because she said hi and like that’s fine because I said if you see me it’s cool to say hi and I just said hello and kept looking at the puzzles and I didn’t click until immediately after she walked away because she had mask on and then I was like awkwardly lining up next to her at the checkout and we were both standing in silence and I was like idk should I say something? Like should I actually say oh hi ___ I didn’t realise it was I bumped into. I felt like it was a bit rude of me to just be like “hello”
but I was so caught off guard when I worked out who it was that I just picked up a random book because it meanf I could get out of there faster but that made it worse because then it was the weird standing in line, I’m almost standing behind her weird awkwardness and I was so flustered at the checkout I just had to get out of there @Taylor-RO they were like do you want it wrapped blah blah blah and my head was spinning
If it happened again... would you strike up a bit more of a conversation? I can't say what they were thinking but I am sure it is not the first time they have seen a client out.. and usually they follow your lead so that you're not made to feel uncomfortable. So if you didn't say much then they probably just left the convo at that. And while you may feel weird and strange (which is a normal response), I am sure they weren't thinking that about you.. I mean, sometimes situations are just a bit awkward and that is ok. They might have also been feeling a bit weird about seeing a client out too!
I could speak to my partner about this shit but I won’t because I jusy won’t
Sorry to hear that has made you feel sick @Saltwaterdreamtime . I hope that you have been feeling a bit better since then. I can understand why you are a bit hesitant to talk to your partner, did you want to talk about why that is? Would you feel uncomfortable talking with them about what happened?
