Testing my new strategies

2 Aug

I just got on a webinar.  I figured I would pass some time since I’ve been at the airport for so long and still have another hour until we board.  I was sure my earphones were plugged into the computer and no one else could hear me.  I was minding my own business watching it.

A woman came over to me and asked me to turn down the sound of my computer.

“We can all hear you and it’s very loud.”

I noticed the gay little man at the next table kind of smirk in agreement.

I wanted to be embarrassed, make her wrong, and run away.

But, instead, I said, “Oh, thank you, I thought it was on my headphones.  Thank you.”  And I was fine.

OK, that’s a bald faced lie.  If I was fine, I would be back listening to the webinar instead of typing this.

I’m really trying not to make her wrong.  I do want to hate her for embarrassing me, but I am going to eventually move on and pay attention to the webinar again.

Anyway, thanks for listening.  I just needed to upgrade myself and be present again.
