How is it that only after two weeks in our new office building I have found myself in an awkward social situation already? Only me.
There's only 30 of us from the Pan Am group working here right now - taking up a small corner of the 3rd floor AND forgive me for trying to be friendly and interact with the other companies up here...
Let me be clear...I've been friendly...as in polite chatter in the kitchen and basic conversation in the elevators...i would admit to a little casual flirting believe me
BUT apparently this has compelled someone (who by the way only knows my first name) to somehow find me in the building directory and send me a pretty suggestive email.
So of course I didn't respond, needing to sit on it for a little bit and analyze my next steps without making this a huge deal as I do have to work here for the next few years...BUT my life would have it that as I'm going to grab a cup of tea from the kitchen who do you think I run into?
This was the definition of awkward. I almost wish someone had caught this on camera. Wow.
My friend Jess shot me a glance that almost made me burst out laughing right there...seriously I don't need this drama at work...
So long story short I had to send possibly one of the weirdest emails I've ever written and politely regretted to inform him that I was just not that into him.
I can't even wait for the response.
Another typical Friday for Alex Orlando - awesome
