I’m not very comfortable at social gatherings. Especially professional and business lunch make me nervous. Interacting with people above me in the office chain scares me. I do not know the norms. What is considered inappropriate and what is not? I don’t know! I’m the youngest in the crowd always and this really makes it more scary and more uncomfortable.
Anyway, four of us went for this training and we all went to a Thai restaurant for lunch today. The guys were engaged in a discussion that revolved around corporate benefits, sports and the weather. I was interested but dint say much. I was just paying close attention to what they had to say. To add to my discomfort they started talking about politics. I was just sitting there having nothing to say. Sigh!
The food was good though. I gave a mental thumbs up to the chef and enjoyed my plate. Here’s a pic!
Also as I promised yesterday, here are some pics of the downtown.
