social (mis) fit

It’s a gorgeous day…we should be out today!

Do you have any big plans for the weekend?

How was your weekend?

Have a nice weekend!

Where are you going for vacation?

Oh…boy…it is snowing?

Do you know what the weather is outside…it is cold!

It is a perfect day out…I am planning to take the rest of the day off!

It is going to get cold and may rain!

Happy Holidays!

Well…this is all the socializing I do with the people here…oh yes all with a big grin on my face…oh….trust me this is not fun!

Not that I am a wierd Hare Krishna that I refuse to have a decent conversation but trust me people here...all they talk about is their consumer lifestyle, Obama, and the weather and of course they love their office gossip...oh well!

We give the word "shallow" a whole new meaning...Hare Krishna!

tis' true. Seeing the artificiality of it all I sometimes have difficulty engaging in these "conversations" with the same level of enthusiasm and "sincerity" as they do. Any pointers on that one?

Hare Krishna mataji

Thanks for the comments

I totally agree with you and honestly I have no clue how to deal with these people.

I try to cultivate the qualities of tolerance and humility and try my best to apply Krishna's teachings. While this is not easy...i try my best.

I admit...i get annoyed at their superficial conversations and also very surprised and shocked (sort of culture shock) how they do not see their own superficial conversations...beats me!!
