One Letter Words

17 May


I absolutely hate awkward one-word conversations. I try to avoid them as much as possible. I’m not saying you have to be an orator to talk to me. I can barely talk myself. Just want a nice conversation with someone who seems like he/she wants to talk to me

A typical one-word conversation would be like this :
Me : Hi! How are you?
X : Good
Me : havent seen you in a while. What have you been up to lately?
X : not much

Sheesh! So annoying. My conversations with robots are more fruitful.
So imagine, to my horror, there are now ONE-LETTER conversations! Really! They do exist! I recently had an unfortunate encounter with it. It goes something like this. (not the actual conversation. Just an example) :
Me : Are you free tomorrow?
XX : Y
Me : I need your help in (blah, blah,blah.)
XX : K

Aarrghhhh! These kinds of conversations make me want to gouge my eyeballs out! Is it so difficult to type an “ok” or a “why”? Sheeeesh!!

    I have “conversations” like that all the time at work! Like the awkward passing each other in a really, really long hallway when neither person really feels like saying hi but feels they have to cause the other person is directly in front of them.
    “Hi! How are ya?”
    I try to get people talking by commenting on something..their clothes, food, gym bag, whatever. Usually that gets more than a mono syllable out of them 🙂

      Haha! Brilliant! Maybe something like this :

      Hey! You look different today. Nice haircut!
      I didn’t have a haircut.
      Err… Still. You look fab.

      It’s only 5 words on their part. Still, better than 1 letter. Lol!
