I'm at a club with my cousin and he sees a lady friend of his. He, knowing that I'm interested in purchasing some property in the near future, decides to introduce me to her because she was a loan agent or something like that. After he introduces me to her at the bar, her and I proceed to have a peaceful conversation about real estate and credit.
I kept it short and brief. In the end she gave me her card.
A moment later the seat on the other side of her became available. So I sat down to relieve myself from standing. As a sat and become a bit more comfortable, I asked her where she was from.
She looked at me kinda crazy and said, "Guess."
Thinking she had an odd sense of humor, I guessed the city we were in and I ordered my drink in the same breath.
Of course, my guess was wrong, and she rolled her eyes as she corrected me. I tried to keep the small talk going, but it was obvious she didn't want anything to do with me. At one point she even told me that my "lines" were "cliche."
When my drink arrived, she--interestingly enough--peered at my wallet and glanced the business card she just me 2 minutes ago. She then said with disgust, "Where did you get my card from?"
"From you," I replied.
She twisted her face and asked, "When?"
"Just now," I told her.
She then realized that I was the same person who was just standing next to her talking to her about buying property. She apologized for her attitude and clarified that she didn't recognize me between to 5-second interval it took for me to move from my standing position on her left, to sitting on the stool next to her on her right.
"Whatever," I'm thinking. But what I was more interested in was, "Why? And where did the attitude come from?"
