Last week when walking into an elevator, two men followed me inside. I pressed the button for my floor and one of the men said “How did you know what floor I wanted?” He went on to say that he always thought women could read men’s minds. I told him he was right – that we could read minds. He then said he’s careful about what he thinks when he’s around women for this very reason. The second gentlemen, watching our exchange, started to chuckle until I gave him my best “I can read your mind” stare at which point he averted his gaze and simply looked at the floor.
When I left my meeting, I noticed a long line of people waiting outside another building, but I couldn’t tell what they were waiting for. I walked to the end of the line and asked the last man standing what was going on. He replied with questions. “I’m in line for Tesla? It’s the first day you can preorder? And put down a deposit?” Apparently, he wasn’t sure what he was waiting for but because I’m a woman and I can read minds, I confirmed his questions were indeed fact. It also helped that I saw the line snaking into the Tesla showroom.
May the farce be with you!
