That Awkward Moment When You Forget Where You LivePosted: August 22, 2012
Yesterday a young couple approached me when I was walking though a parking lot to get to a coffee shop. The conversation went as follows:
Woman Stranger: Excuse me, are you from around here.
Me: Uh, no.
Man Stranger (to Woman Stranger): Oh wait, her plates are out of state.
Me (realizing they weren’t asking where I was originally from but whether or not I lived in the area): Oh wait, I do live here! Do you need help?
Woman Stranger: We were just wondering if you knew of a good place to get pizza.
Me: Uh, I’ve heard of a place but I don’t remember what it is called. . . or where it is. . . . . . I’m sorry, I just moved here a month ago. *rushes away from really awkward conversation without saying goodbye*
Woman Stranger: Well, thanks anyway. . .
