Throwback Tuesdays – Awkward Corporate America

Throwback Tuesdays – are older posts from days gone by, reuse and recycle entertainment!!

Awkward Corporate moments
There are definitely things that you do when you are in corporate America that you never do otherwise.
Excessive talks about the weather
Brainstorming about Excel, CRM, SAP,  or Lotus notes or some other internal system
Talking about a database that is very specific to your company, thus alienating everyone else!

And then the weird awkward conversations….
“Hey Jim, nice to see you in the cafeteria, I see you got some sandwich action”
The supervisor from Asia or Europe who uses his middle finger to point to things
European colleagues who talk about handing over the ball way too much… stop talking about balls.

OR like this….
There was pizza left over from another meeting, so I caved and had a slice of pepperoni.
Me:  “Ah, don’t judge, empty carbs at 3PM is a weakness of mine.”
Male coworker: “Oh I would have pegged you as a sausage girl”
Me: “hahaha, right”  
AWKWARD… and you can’t even point to how awkward that was and break the tension because it may be inappropriate so it just lies there like a dying cat… meow. (meow indeed!)
