SOCIALIZING IN THE CHECKOUT LANE
An excerpt from
My Antisocial Life
By Deborah A. Wolf
Random Dude: I hope this climate change thing isn’t permanent, because if winters get any harsher we’re all gonna die. People just don’t have survival skills anymore.
Me: I grew up in Alaska, so I’ll be fine. The rest of you are screwed, though.
Random Dude: Not if you teach the rest of us how to survive.
Me: Why would I do that?
Random Dude: :/
Note to Self: Don’t attempt to socialize with them. Stick to making brief, unfriendly eye contact and move along.
