    What is the most socially confident thing you have done lately?

    Yesterday I was looking to apply for loss prevention jobs at retail stores. So I called target and asked to speak to the loss prevention supervisor.
    The lady on the phone told me he was in a meeting and I should get a call back in about an hour. 6 hours later, I get no call. So I called once again and asked to speak to him again, but I got the same response from the first time I called "He is in a meeting right now and we will call you back later".

    So I told her "Look, I know he isn't in a meeting because I got the same bs the last time I called. Can you please put me on the phone with your LP supervisor?"
    She then said "hold on a minute" and then she hung up lol.

    I find that my SA goes away when I am angry or irritated with someone.

    Let's hear your stories...

    Haha! That's awesome. I haven't done a lot lately to be honest so I def need to make some kind of plan. Maybe I need to find someone to get angry at.

    I went to a new family doctor today since my psych just recently transferred my files over there. First time meeting them and I think it went well, since it appears that they actually read through my files so I didn't have to awkwardly explain anything.

    Same here with the anger thing. When I'm angry I say more than I would have said all week and very serious stuff. The most confident thing I have done recently would have been helping a little old woman get her groceries onto the bus. I was just sitting there and no body was getting up to help, so I did. I was hoping someone would, so I didn't have to. But I would feel like crap for the next couple of days if I didn't help.

    On Monday I'm going to learn how to line dance. There will lots of people there, and I'm so nervous. I've been doing some practicing in the living room today.

    That's a really brave thing to do. Have fun!

    Me? I sold a ticket over Craigslist.

    I've also been getting takeout with a co-worker lately. And I accompanied another to the store the other day. Stuff like that freaks me out, but I'm glad I'm going ahead and doing it anyway.

    I cycled from Canada to Mexico.. Solo. Met a lot of amazing people. Even started conversations and carried them with a range of people and personalities. Even walked straight up and talked to a group of 3 girls. Pretty average but i did it.

    I take it back. I am not going. I found a chance to get out of it and I took it. I totally suck.

    try not to beat yourself up about this. Stuff happens. What happened between then and now to make you change your mind about going?

    At a work meeting, I sat down at a table that two people were already sitting at. After 10 or so seconds of silence, I eased the tension(may be my own tension ) by introducing myself with a handshake to both of them. They were both welcoming and it felt good to be so bold...since I usually avoid situations like that.

    I went out for breakfast with a friend and we had a very nice conversation. I also have no problem ordering for myself.
