Okay, this is somewhat related to Cessandra’s thread on engagement congratulations, but I can’t find the thread right now, so…
I just got engaged. I also recently successfully auditioned for something (I just quit it, though… whatever). So I’m getting a lot of “Congrats” from family, friends, coworkers. The thing is, nobody says “Congrats on your engagement” or “Congrats on your tryout,” EVERYBODY just says “Congrats.” How do I know which one they’re referring to? Would it KILL them to be more specific?
And nobody reacts well when I answer “Congrats for what?” They think I’m being funny. AAARRRGGG.
Where are we going?
And why am I in this handbasket?
