Onboarding at a new company often includes presenting a fun fact about yourself. I’m too often caught off-guard by that, so I’ve written down a bunch of them:
When an ATM gives me money, I say “thank you” and thereby stave off the inevitable robot uprising.
My hiccups sound like adorable dog barks or pig squeals, and I’ve been mistaken for a puppy multiple times.
It is hard to resist pull faces at my own reflection in the mirror. 🤪
I have a long neck but I am not a giraffe.
I finished my university studies well over a decade ago, yet when I meet new people, I’m still frequently asked what I study?!
I’m tall (1m90) and most mirrors are too low: I need to duck to see my face. I’ve taken plenty of “selfies” in low mirrors — not quite selfies, as my body but not my face is visible! (My photo management software has facial recognition, but it doesn’t find selfies which… don’t contain face! Gah.)
I never delegate. I have someone who does that for me.
