If eruvadhril ever tells you “I’m helping”, RUN THE FUCK AWAY! She doesn’t know what that means. It is her “Inconceivable”
We also talked to Nick Briggs, very smug that we’d figured out what he was playing in Good Omens.
He had no clue what we were talking about, was hugely surprised to hear there even WAS a Dalek in Good Omens, and corrected us.
So that was slightly deflating.
But we now know things! Also when next we spoke to him he addressed us as “Troubles”. We totally made an impression on him :D
So today I went to the post office, I bought my envelope and started writing the destination. The guy behind the counter, just out of nowhere, ask me “so you going to write your address down?” with that Joey Tribbiani How you doing? head tilt. That one I just kind of laughed off because it was so unexpected and I still needed to finish posting my parcel.
Then tonight at about 11.30 eruvadhril & I stop at Macca’s near Oxford Circus. There are three biggish dudes that order just before us, they get their food but stay standing at the counter. I order and one of them turns to me and asks what I’m getting. Now I don’t turn to look at him and just say “food”, obviously I haven’t made it clear enough that I’m not interested. He then asks if I’ve “ordered and attitude burger” I ignore that and he then asks, “really what have you got” to which I responded with “no interest in continuing this conversation”.
The confusion in his voice when he said “seriously?” after that was kind of priceless, I walked away at that point to get a straw and he kind of followed me. eruvadhril told him he needed to “back off” and his mate tried to offer me some of his half eaten cheeseburger.
I’m totally ok with talking to strangers, hell I’m always striking up conversations with people standing near me in lines or where ever I am, but if the person you are trying to talk to isn’t interested, just leave it. I hadn’t even looked at this guy, let alone made eye contact before he asked his first question. If I’d wanted to engage with him I’d have looked at him when I answered. Why do some people just blatantly ignore those signals?
