What am I even supposed to say to that? (Note: Don't worry, this post isn't about cats)
Okay, first off, this post is NOT ABOUT CATS, so be relieved.
So, I was at work this morning, and one of my jobs is receptionist, so my work area is by the front of the office. Around eleven, a man walked through the front door, file folder in hand.
"Good morning," I said. "Can I help you?"
"Wow, you look really tired," the man said. "I'm here for a meeting with (insert name here)."
Okay. Um. I wasn't tired, not really, but I did look a little tired; I had noticed that myself when I had glanced in the mirror earlier. I guess it comes with the territory of being older than dirt, and combine that with a Monday morning after a busy, lousy weekend, and yeah. I looked tired.
"I ... uh ... feel okay," I told the man. "I'll let (insert name here) know you're here."
You know what? I'm not sure that it's really appropriate to tell a total stranger, "you look really tired." But maybe I'm being oversensitive? I dunno. What do you think?
Now maybe I'm wondering if I should have said, "I may look tired, but you sure look ugly." Ha.
