Just ask LOTS of questions. Even if they seem pointless.

Funniest post I've read today.
Query: So what would happen if the bus stop guy walked in as a customer?

permission to speak, no need for permission


Thanks , ah the accidental hilarity of crushing social phobias.

Lucky for me that I'm normally found skulking around in the bottom office as I am generally in charge of paperwork , the only real time I have to talk with customers is when my incompetent peons cant help or their is a customer grievance. If by some slim chance I did run into him at the work place , id just pretend I have no idea what he's talking about and quickly pass him over to one of the floor staff , then book it down to my office and hide behind my filing cabinet fort for a while.

It may be a social phobia, or it may just be that you are genuinely uninterested in what they have to say. You could always just find people who talk about things you don't care about and stop worrying about how you act in uninteresting conversations. Otherwise, you can either teach yourself to become interested in things people have to say which, at first, seem uninteresting - or just pretend you are interested. If you want to pretend to be interested just watch people have conversations in which they seem interested and simply emulate them. The latter is probably the most practical solution.

It's not the social phobia that's funny but the way you treat your staff.

Peons xD

So...want me to tell you about this girl getting bit in the boob by a snake?

If no stories I just go by asking questions. Nothing but questions sooner or later I'll find something in common with them.

Sometimes when 'm having a convo I get totally self conscious, I think that the person is judging me or something like that
But now I know that that's almost never true, when I'm thinking like that I know I'm taking things too seriously and thinking too hard
So now I just be myself, and if I have nothing to say or if the conversation becomes dull or whatever that its ok

How do you go about handling a conversation?


I'm pretty good at not falling in to one in the first place, but if I do get caught in one I just RUNNN AWAYYYY

Haha but you see they are not children or teenagers they are people in their late 20s all the way up to late 40's.
If they are not squabbling between themselves about who said what about who , bitching about who's wearing what , blaming each other for not doing any work ,they are ignoring the customers. I really dislike people who slack off at work so I'm perfectly happy for them too see me as the shedevil so at least I know they will do stuff when I'm around. Its a whole different story for the afternoon manager ...haha poor guy.
