Needs A Smooth Coffee

| Friendly | January 19, 2016

(When commuting to work via public transportation, I’m used to being approached by strangers, usually for money. Since I have social anxiety, this is really stressful for me, and I use headphones, an open book, and my best resting b**** face to deter conversation. It usually works, but this woman sits next to me on the train one day.)

Woman: *unconvincingly* “Jess? Jess, is that you?”

Me: “No, sorry, that’s not me.”

Woman: “Oh. You look a lot like my friend Jess!”

Me: “Okay, well, I’m not… so…”

Woman: *without missing a beat* “Can I have $5? I really need a coffee.”

Me: *sigh* “Real smooth…”
