MIS 2200, Business Communications, is one of my last classes before I graduate. Last Wednesday we discussed that various cultures have different acceptable proximities for how close we should be when talking with one another. She showed us a hilarious clip from Seinfield about this very thing. The next day I was walking out of my class and all of the sudden I felt someone looking at me. I looked up and there was this guy who was about 10 inches away from me. I rudely started to laugh thinking this cannot be happening. Sure enough he just continued to walk by me asking my name and where I was from. I felt very rude because every one of my answers I kept busting up laughing. I finally had to apologize saying that I had just seen something funny. I figured it's not really lying if what I had seen was him. Life is so ironic sometimes. I had just been watching a clip the day before about personal space and on Thursday I experienced someone intruding into mine.
