I can't believe I just read that
So I work in an office and I've noticed something interesting there. It's a breeding ground for what I like to call the "half-smile/nod".
The Scene: any office
The Players: you, bitch
Other players: random co-worker
So you're walking down the hall and you see a co-worker or someone who works in the same office walking towards you. You don't really know this person, but you know who they are and vice versa. Or maybe you don't. But either way, as you pass each other, you start to smile. But it's only halfway. Actually, it's more like a smirk, and no teeth are ever shown. And as you're forming this interesting facial expression, you sort of nod your head downards at half speed as you make eye contact with the other person.. It's the half-smile/nod. It's akin to saying "Hey, I don't know you so this is how we apparently acknowledge each others existance. You work where I work so I'll be polite and smile. But don't get the wrong idea because as you can see, it's only a half smile I'm giving you. But don't fear, I'll throw in a nod on the house."
I go through this routine a few times a day. So much so that it was on my mind and I blogged about it. I don't call this blog wasting time for nothing!
I'll try and do better next time, kids.
