Why I Hate Receptions

{Originally Posted on Myspace}

One thing I notice about being in a professional setting is that people leave and move around all the time. Someone always seems to leaving their job for greener pastures. So when things like these happen, there is always a reception to bid the person farewell. Plus there are the holiday parties with all the mingling crap. Let me preface all of this by saying that if you know me, then you know that I am an outgoing person. I like to laugh, joke, and generally socialize. But, I still hate receptions.

I went to this reception the other day for a former co-worker. I walk in, and I groan to myself because there are certain people I really don't want to talk to at this event. I hate small talk and I just don't want to create some with people that I don't really care to talk to. But, I am polite anyway. First thing I do is head for the food since the person I want to bid farewell to seems busy. Food was nasty...but whatever. So I wait my turn to talk to someone. I eat so I don't feel like a fool just standing there. I speak to the person and bid them well. At this point I am thinking, "Is it rude if I just leave now?" So I decide to stay.

I find some people that are nice to talk to and I move on. So, I finally see someone walk in that I can conversate with. We start a convo...and then this white woman (yes I went there) interrupts to speak to the guy I am talking to. As if I was not there. Ok, I just smile and eat some food and pretend to care about the convo. Eventually, I move on. So, I talk to another person and this time we are talking about work. I am in mid sentence when this old fucking white man (that I know from another area) looks at me, then interrupts by talking to this guy! WTF! I just walk away. Why do people do that? I swear, if I were to be like..."asshole I am talking" then I am a crazy Latino. So I just walk away. Later on the other guy I was talking apologizes...whatever man.

So there was a reception yesterday I went to. I totally interrupted these white ladies talking to the colleague the reception was intended for.
