Well THAT was unfortunate  
Going down the stairs today to go to lunch today with the department, this rather hot guy comes running out of the Fox office downstairs. He takes a double, triple, and quadruple take, and not so subtlely. I'm trying to look without appearing to look in front of my coworkers, as I'm trying to remain engaged in the conversation with them without appearing distracted. (Wow, that's a lot of "trying.") I thought for sure I'd get a couple comments form my coworkers. I actually kind of wish I had; it made the whole encounter a bit uncomfortable. But I think the new employee and guy from another department being with us tempered that. I saw them looking at him, so I know they saw it.

BUT WHY DO THESE THINGS NEVER HAPPEN WHEN I'M ALONE! You think I'm bad at flirting when I'm alone, you should see me when I'm in front of others. It's almost painful to watch.

Anyway, it's fairly obvious to everyone what had just went on. He continued to look back, several times. I'm horrible at encounters like this, but even this one I could have handled if I were alone, his brazenness would have allowed me to say something—exchange screennames and shit. Instead I just had to watch him walk off, periodically looking back, while I realized there was nothing I could do short of breaking with the group and going after him. Of course, I should have done that, but I was more concerned with embarrassment. Why couldn't I be shameless like him?!


Hopefully he works at Fox and wasn't some messenger I'll never see again. It's more likely the latter.

Mood: *bangs self in head*

awww! no worries, everyone goes through a moment like that, where they did nothing where they should've done something. I know I've done it many many times. LOL. And if they say they haven't then they're lying! :):)

Well, I hope that he works at Fox for you! (i don't know how to make that sentence sound right...) ;) hehe

You should've walked over to him and sensually whispered your number into his ear while casually playing with his nipple through his shirt.

I'm the same way. I've had stuff happen at work and I've wanted to flirt with someone but I'm either busy doing something with customers or else I'm having to listen to someone say something and need to pay attention. Also, if someone makes an obvious flirt with me, or does something to that effect... I realize this about 5 or 10 minutes too late and then I never see them again. It's so frustrating. Some day though...

I meant 'where' as in what place? I don't know of any places where FOX people just hang out.

lol, give those calves a work out.
