Well… this blog entry isn’t about the famous National Hero Dr. Jose Rizal’s novel Noli Me Tangre which he wrote during the Spanish colonization here in the Philippines, thus this entry is just to tell you a story about how touchy people could be so intimidating.
It just so happened that I’ve met several people like this in all genders and I come up with one thing, I am getting intimidated whenever they are possessing their ‘touchy attitude’ to me, and I know I am not the only one who gets the same feeling too.
Me and my friend had a conversation about this matter last night...
“I thought I am the only who is intimidated of him!” my friend told me when I confess that I don’t like the ‘touchy thing’ of one of our colleagues “It’s not that I feel so beautiful that I don’t wanted to be touched by any people but I just feel so uncomfortable whenever he is touching me, we are not close anyway!” the feeling is so mutual “Well, I have close friends who used to do that to me but not that often!” he proceeds I am just listening because all he is saying are all the things I wanted to say to him too “Imagine, he is just asking me a question this morning and yet he is touching my shoulder in a not so usual way! I actually don’t know if it has a meaning or not but It is just so uncomfortable, I wonder if he is doing it with his friends too.” I laughed when he said that because the friends of that guy are all guys too… Imagine, if he is doing it too with his friends? That could lead to some trouble.
Well, we are not assuming that we are superior kind of human being and we aren’t supposed to be touched by anyone but before you do such thing, make sure if it is acceptable with the kind of status that you established with them socially and ask yourself first if they wanted to be touched by you or not in the first place… Uh-Oh… I am getting so mean again.
