Women like to be complimented. Men like woman. That’s why men compliment women even when there is no reason to do so. The followers of this axiom always wonder why do women avoid them.
Yesterday one of my colleagues, sitting few desks away from me came in a dress that made me remember of Vidya Balan. I am single guy with the reputation of being workaholic in the office. To salve my reputation, I decided to ignore her and her dress.
However, every time she whizzed pass my desk, I felt my muse telling me there is nothing wrong in speaking your mind especially when you are speaking the truth.
While listening to my muse and contemplating on the proper way of telling her the truth, the Vidya Balan avatar send me an IM asking me the location of few files. I replied by telling her the path and added GM at the end of the message. The avatar immediately replied to my GM with – VGM.
I decided to bite the bullet and replied to her reply with- ‘There is something I want to tell you. Promise me you won’t get angry.’
She said, ‘If it is something that I should be angry about, I would become angry.’
I typed in the chatbox – ‘It is just that you are wearing a beautiful dress’, heaved a sigh and pressed send.
I heard some giggling between the avatar and the girl sitting next to avatar but decided to ignore it because the avatar had replied to my IM.
The IM read as – Why would I get angry on your compliment? BTW Thanks.
I thought about drafting an appropriate reply to her query but couldn’t come up with any. Hence, I closed the chat window and said to myself – Thanks to the technology, I don’t have to open my mouth to put my foot into my mouth.
To sum up
It takes month to build a reputation of being a workaholic and few minutes to prove that you are just another guy.
