Most of us work in some sort of office environment. And in doing so, being the observational kind of people we are, we notice things around the office- how people act, what they’re doing, what they’re not doing, how they talk to people, who they talk to, etc. A fun little comedy series, Working Lunch, has made the not-so-funny day to day routine we live into funny, thought provoking articles and mini series. My favorite is article is Social Anxiety.
So I went out and bought a red jump suit and a red hat and borrowed some gold rings and a necklace from my sister — pretty much like some of those guys in the video had on. And before I got to the office, I stopped off to get some coffee, and there were a bunch of guys outside all dressed in blue. And one of them seemed real nice. And he asked me if I really liked red. So, keeping direct eye contact with him just like I had practiced with my therapist, I started telling him about my plan to dress differently. And then these six guys, well, they said if I didn’t get out of there, they’d kill me. Then they chased me down the street. I had to leave my car and walk the rest of the way to the office.
