One thing people always say when they first meet me is "Wow you're really quiet". Yes, wonderful observation. That's just how I am. I'm quiet. I'm shy. I despise small talk and you're gonna have to carry most of the conversation. I work in a call center for customer service and tech support. Unless the customer starts a casual conversation, it's gonna be transactional and focused on their problem. I'm patient and try really hard to get the problem fixed right there. I'm just so awkward at making conversation. I'm good at tech support, I enjoy it, I want to focus on that.
