I am flattered but...

There I was. Helping a customer at work. We concluded the meeting and he left.

An hour later, he is back in my office.

I greeted him with ,

"Hi...your back!..."

and he replied,

"Yeah, I came back to get your number".

This conversation ended with me NOT handing my number over and telling him that I was flattered. I was shocked. Is it normal for people to do that in a business/ professional setting?

I am not used to guys doing that... How am I supposed to react?

Has something like this ever happened to you? How did you react?



PS... Happy Friday! Enjoy the weekend!


  1. That's nuts. I've never had that happen to me in a professional setting though!

    You did the right thing by telling him you were flattered. Rejecting someone is never easy!

  2. Yikes. That is totally awkward in a professional setting. That wouldn't be shocking if he ended up seeing you while out and about, but to come back to your work and ask? I think you handled it the best way!

  3. I work in a restaurant, so I feel like it's a little different (and yes, I've been asked out before, gah, so awkward).

    Totally weird in a business setting!


I love comments and definitely enjoy reading them. Please be kind! :)
