Tadao I'm going to go out on a limb and assume you are attracted to her.

It's only going to get weirder for her if you try to correct it. How about you just show up tomorrow and when she makes eye contact with you and says "alright" you shamefully look to her feet and say "I am now that you are here".

If she acts like a cunt do a Jim Carry "WELL ALRIGHTY THEN!"

Colonel Flagg You can do one of three things:

1. Greet her in the hallway/corridor with "Hey now!", or "Back Atcha!" or "Yo. Adrian!" or anything other than "Alright!", and make an effort to not say "alright" to her ever again.

2. Begin a conscious effort to get to know this person - casually chat about the weather, the game last night, or a recent episode of "The McNeil-Lehrer News Hour" - find out if you have anything in common.

3. Ask Tadao - He'll really have some ideas to help you out.

Awkwardness at work

So I'm in work talking to this girl I work with who I've spoken to a few times but don't know that well. She says "alright?" when she greets me and I say alright back. I then say "I'm always saying "alright?" when I see people, I'm trying to make a conscious effort not to." She agrees and says "I know, it's because we're constantly passing people in the corridors, you don't have time to say anything else."

An hour later I'm sat at my desk bored, everyone who usually sits near me had gone somewhere else so I had no one to talk to. I decide to send her a hilarious email just saying "alright?" thinking that she would reply "alright" and that would be the end of it. I then see a look of confusion / disgust on her face as the email gets to her, and receive no reply. Five minutes later I walk up to her desk and say "that was an ill advised attempt at humour that's getting more and more awkward the longer it goes on." She said "oh right. I didn't know your last name so wasn't sure if it was from you. I only just realised." I then tried to explain myself out of my hole by talking about how bored I was over there by myself etc etc. Not sure how it came off, but regardless, I have been a cringing wreck for the last two hours.

So, tomorrow do I acknowledge it and make fun of myself a little bit, or just move on, pretend it never happened and act natural? I think part of the reason this went so horrendously wrong is that you can easily just read it as me being like "hey, what's up?" Which is probably the dumbest thing to email someone that you work with.
