So, I was having a conversation with a co-worker and were discussing our accounts and figuring what our next plan of action would be.
Co-worker:"Hey, so XXX company is looking to open up their channel sales department"
Me:"Oh serious? That's pretty cool. It seems like you'll be getting some extra revenue."
Co-worker:"Yeah man. I'm pretty stoked about the whole thing. I mean what are the odds that I have an account that's about to unleash some heavy commission."
(He begins to inch closer)
Me: Uh.. yeah. I know. It's gonna be some smooth sailing for you man.
(He moves in closer to me)
Co-worker: "YEAH DUDE! OH MY GOD. I've been stressing about my quota this quarter, but now I can actually breathe"
(The dude is literally three inches from my face amd I'm literally smelling what he had for lunch. He had a hotdog from Costco.. I just know it.)
Me: Yeah "(I stall and I look at my cellphone). Looks like I gotta head into a conference call. I'll talk to you later bro."
Personal space. I can't stand it when people don't acknowledge a person's space. I mean if I actually puckered my lips, I would have been kissing the guy for chrissakes.
Do any of you guys deal with this?
