Have You Ever Felt Invisible? - What Causes It?
I cannot tell you the number upon number upon number of times I go into Starbucks, place my order and then wait patiently while drink after drink after drink is made and passed to other customers...yet my drink never comes...customers who ordered after me get their drinks and go about their day and I am left waiting. I am forced with 2 options:
***Interrupt the barista to ask what happened to my drink
***Try and wait patiently to see if they remember my drink
One time I decided to play a little game to see how long it would take them to acknowledge me. I was in no hurry so I did this little experiment. About 15 - 20 minutes later I was finally noticed by the barista and asked what my drink was...phew
This has happened time after time after time...so not quite sure whats up with that.
Today I walked into my haircut place and same thing happened. It is almost as if I vanished into the background. It was uncanny how no one in the haircut shop acknowledged me. It was weird because when I walked in, one of the employees looked at me and nodded his head towards a chair implying I should take a seat and wait because he was in the middle of cutting someone's hair.
Again I was in no hurry so I decided to wait and see how long it would take anyone to acknowledge me. I waited for over 45 minutes until someone finally acknowledged me to sign me in because they have to sign you in.
At first I was a little upset, but I quickly calmed down and again found it as interesting as my coffee experience.
Now I am just pondering the question, how is it that some people just tend to blend in and disappear and not get noticed.
