Yesterday, two of my coworkers kept patting me on the head as I sat at my table, busily working.
I finally asked for an explanation from one of them.
“It’s good luck!”
Before he said that, I thought the head-patting was just merely strange, if not just a little annoying. But when he said it was for good luck, I got irritated. I didn’t say anything and I’m sure my irritation didn’t show in my behavior, but I’m thinking I probably would have snapped if someone had touched my head again. Fortunately, that didn’t happen.
If you had been me, how would you have felt?
