One can only laugh
I love to work with funny people. Patti Purcell, our COO, outdid herself yesterday at the MTLC unConference. Here’s the scene:
Venture Capitalist, with British accent, casually meeting Patti for the first time:
So what do you do?
Patti starts to answer him, but the man immediately begins scanning the room, not listening to a word she says.
Patti changes tack and says,
Basically I spend most of the day plucking eyeballs off of baby dolls.
Mr. VC nodded vaguely, and wandered off. A nearby bystander said,
What did you just say??
I, myself, FOMCALMAO. (Google it.)

Should have pulled something like that on Scott Kirshner when he pulled that “scan the room” stuff on me.
The trick is not to take it personally. You never know what is going on in the other person’s head….and some people don’t realize that they do this chronically.
I realized I used the less-popular spelling of that acronym…the one with an extra “a” in the middle.
