I hate rushing for assignments. Especially when I have to interview someone.
As I whizzed past signals and annoying people, I realised I was late by 10 minutes. Nooooo.
Cut to the present scene, I’m sitting at this lovely smelling store with a lot of beautiful clothes around me. There are all shades of pink, blues, yellows and pretty much every other colour I can think of. As I wait in the store, sitting on gigantic sized black velvet chairs… there are cookies, magazines and a stack of juice cartons to choose from.
A lady rushes to my side and asks me if I need anything, I settle for water.
The rest of the time is spent waiting for the designer.
The interview got done within no time. I made some small talk, laughed a little. .. etc. Then when I was about to leave she said, “You have beautiful earrings,” I felt really happy.
I smiled, thought about my reply, did a mental check if the reply was fine and I said, “Thank you Anahita.”
A perfectly normal reply… only if her name had been Anahita. Sigh.
Anahita was the store’s name. Her name started with the alphabet P.
I was horrified and to add to my embarrassment she started laughing.
Yes, facepalm moment.
I smiled, what else could I do, and walked out.
I thought, hey this doesn’t happen everytime, then I remembered… in my case it does happen everyday.
I drove away red-faced. Hey, at least she said my earrings were beautiful.
