Oops – it wasn’t me!

Posted: 10/17/2009 in Navel gazing

Do you ever have one of those moments when you think you may have accidentally triggered an awkward situation? You don’t know whether you should say something or just pretend you didn’t hear anything. This afternoon when I was riding the elevator down to the lobby to check the mail there was someone from building’s management and a couple of potential renters in there as well. Within seconds of my entering one of potential renters asked the management dude if it was true that the apartments were particularly cold.  Maybe he would have asked that question any way but I got the feeling that it was my outfit that triggered it.  What could have given the game away –  the Ugg boots, leggings, sweater, cardigan and scarf combo perhaps? Overkill for someone just stepping out of their apartment to go check the mail.  Management dude of course went on about the effective heating in the apartments, and I guess I could have spoken up to reassure the potential renters but you know what this is a chilly apartment block with so-so heating (which was why I was wearing a scarf).
