Speak Your Mind: This Produce is Poppin’!
Recently, I started a new job. To someone as prone to anxiety as I am, this was a stressful experience. Meeting new people, hoping people like you…it’s a freaking nightmare! And it’s not helped by the fact that I seem to speak my own language. More than once I’ve been on the receiving end of blank looks when I say things like “Intertubz” and “what the what.”
This is pretty much my life when I meet new people, but my brother has the opposite problem. You see, he’s a normal human being who doesn’t say weird stuff. However, when he worked at a grocery store, his boss said some silly stuff. For example, he provided me with the phrase I use when I really like something: “This produce is poppin’!” (What the what? How do you even respond to that?)
Do you ever get caught saying something that seems normal to you, but is like a foreign language to everyone else? How do you handle it? Do you have any esoteric phrases that I can drop into casual office conversation?
