I don't know about you, but I'm not into small talk with people at the office that I barely know or don't know at all. I've gotten used to it with my co-workers that I see everyday and have become friends with most of them. However, there is that occasional day when I am forced to interact with a co-worker that I don't know and will most likely never see again.
Today was one of those days.
IT had my laptop and I had to go pick it up.
While I was comfortably waiting for him to fix something and completely ok with the silence he said,
"So, how was your weekend?"
[ummm uh, really? why on earth is he asking me this? I've never met him in my entire life.]
I then awkwardly responded by saying,
"Oh, uh, it was nice out. I um, have kind of a weird sunburn on my forehead. Guess the sunscreen didn't work right."
Who says that?!?!?!
I don't know.
