How do I get a job at McDonald's when your socially awkward

Report as

Well! How dare you call me socially awkward! :O
What does your getting a job at McDonald's have to do with my being socially awkward, and moreover.....how do you know I'm socially awkward?!
Well, I never! Huh!

She's probably been reading a bunch of your answers. :p

Gee, thanks. I certainly don't go around claiming to be socially awkard! Don't think I appear that way, either! :)

Please report my answer to this question, as 'stupid' or something, dearest. I posted the above, a comment to you, as an answer. I updated and butchered it but it's still there. help!

If there's anything more that I love than messing with you... it would have to be beer.
Report as
K, I still don't get the esses, sorry.
Report as
Report me, dammit!
Report as
I did.
Hmm, beer, huh? Oh, I imagine there are a lot of things you love more than kidding around with me.
So....those esses?
Report as
Ok, here we go- I posted, "she's probably been reading..." as an answer. It was meant to be a comment to you (which I did post). When I realized my mistake, I went back and butchered my answer to 'SSSS' thinking the mods would remove it. But they didn't. I was wanting you to report it so maybe I wouldn't look as dumb as I am. My bad! I did the same d@mn thing this morning. Duke bailed me out. And how are you this evening?!
Report as
Ah, I've done that a few times, myself. If we've been here long enough, we've all done it.
I did report your answer. I think it was funny, though. = )
'Kay, the esses were just to have something there. Got ya.

Well, I'm not great, but I'm better than I sometimes am, thank you.
Hondo, how is your ewe and how is your mom?
Report as
You asked about my ewe and mom a couple days ago and I never got back to you. Sorry! That is really sweet of you to remember. The ewe cleared-up after 3 days/shots. Mother is well. She should be! She's got a bottle of Percoset!
Report as
Not to get mushy or anything but... my life seems so much better now that you are a part of it. You give me something to look forward to each day. And if a day passes that I don't hear from you, absence makes the heart grow fonder. I will be quiet now...
Report as
That's alright, Hondo. So you did see it then.
I do remember things, Hondo, especially when someone matters to me.
I'm glad good diagnoses for both. :)
Yep, your mom should have smooth sailing! :)
Report as
Aww, Hondo, My God. You don't know what your words do to me. :' )
You've said some really nice things to me. You know, I could say the same things about how it is for me.....consider them said. :)
Report as
Thanks, so sweet. And I don't say things I don't mean. I'm going out to feed the sheep and walk Libby. I'll be back on before I turn in. If you're not around, sweet dreams!
Report as
You're welcome. That's a beautiful thing you said to me, again, up there. Means a whole lot, Hondo. Sweet dreams to you, too. :)
Btw, I don't, either.
Report as
Fyi, prognoses, I meant, not diagnoses :)
Report as
You around, Gail?
Report as
I sure am!
Report as
Oh sh!t I'm sorry. I've been searching. Hi!
Report as
hi :)
Nothing to be sorry about.
Report as
I'll brb
Report as
Okay, Hondo, and btw, I did comment where I wasn't supposed to. :) Remember where that was?
Report as
No, not at the moment. I was searching for a 3 hour old answer of yours I came across. Not on your profile page. I commented. Now I can't find the d@mn thing-
Report as
Oh, I think I know the one you mean. It's not on my profile page because it's four days old. I will find it. Thanks for letting me know.
Report as
Come back. I wanna get mushy, clingy...
Report as
Oh man, Hondo. :)

Well, I guess where I thought you commented wasn't so, because there's no comment there. Do you remember what the subject was?
Report as
I found it. It went like, "tell me something about you I don't know". Sooo... tit for tat
Report as
Yes, I was just there. So where are we officially discussing that? Here?

Hondo, just to let you know, I'm concerned about a comment ban.

Well, let's see..............btw, I like this game, and tit for tit is right. I have wanted to know more about you. :) So........well, just going to be something random. You already know I'm shy, so.................Man, this isn't easy, you know. I don't want to bore you.......................okay, I know......my favourite eye colour is green, and I learned your eyes are green. Oh my! = )
Report as
Ok, comment ban. Never had one. Is that like a time-out? Stand in the corner? I won't fret. I know my friend will be back!
Report as
Yes. First one will be thirty minutes. Yes, of course I would be back.
Okay, now it's your turn.
Report as
My turn? Ok... I didn't lose my virginity until I was 19.
Report as
No, Hondo. No way! Say it isn't so! If it's true, I'm proud of you. :) I'm sorry, of course it's true. Wow, that's a surprise. Good one, though.
Report as
I was kind of backwards. I didn't get around much. My friends were out partyin' on sat. night, I was plowing. Then along came the neighbor's daughter... Ur turn!
Report as
Oh boy. Was she a farmer's daughter, too? Sounds like she was the farmer's daughter, but she couldn't keep her calves together! :O

I was the same as you, but, because I was so damn shy.

it would be easier if you asked me questions, that way it would be things you would like to know, but, okay.....if I must. :)
Let's see.......I love sensitive, romantic mushy men, but you may already have seen that in my profile.
Report as
You're not playing fair! Ok...I like Elton John. (music)
Report as
Well, if that didn't count, you can make me go twice in a row.
Elton John. That's cool. I really enjoy a lot of his ballads, in particular. The mushier stuff, you know. :)
Okay........are we still dong this? lol Um........ I don't want to be too forward here.......but, I just want you to know you affect me more than than you could realize. Yep, that was my turn. :)
Report as
Great answer Gail! Star for ya! You make me slap-happy!
Report as
:o)
You make me happy, too, Hondo.
Report as
No more q&a. I'll learn with time. Slow and easy-
Report as
Well, I enjoyed it. Thanks. :)
Report as
Hondo, you mentioned an answer of mine that you commented on, that wasn't on my profile page. Do you remember the subject matter of my answer?
Report as
Omg it's 2:30! I have a poker game in 12 hours! Could you say 'lap top' one time for me before I go?
Report as
Yes, I need to go, too. I didn't want to leave, though. Was hoping you would say you had to go, first.
Poker game. :)
Lap da.........
Night, Hondo. I enjoyed this time with you. Sweet dreams. :)
Report as
Back at ya. Dreams...
Report as
Wow, I got a response!! :)
Thanks. :)
Report as
Well, guess there isn't anything for me to add. Except, Gail is a wonderful woman, Hondo! We need to kidnap her!
Report as
I saw that Happy directed you here, Bob. Seems she was amused. lol
Awww, Bob, thank you, yet again. You are always so kind. You're pretty wonderful, too. As I said before, I await that kidnapping with much anticipation. = )
Report as
That's if I can keep Hondo under control on the way there! Your son can come stay with us while you get to know each other. But, I will put that boy to work. I pay well, so he'll be fine.
Report as
Sounds great, all around. :)

Well, you have to practice talking to people. Talk, talk, talk. Practice interviewing with someone in your family who is good at getting hired, prepare answers for common questions at interview. Prepare and practice.

My recommendation is to let the job work for you. Use the job as a tool to improve your social skills. As long as you are polite, on time, and professionally presentable for the interview some fast food place will hire you even if it takes a few interviews at different places. I don't mean to imply you wouldn't get the job, but jobs are scarce. If you think a fast food job would be too much then start off in a position like a grocery store bagger because you are exposed to the public and you can work on your social skills.

You don't unless your one of the people that just cooks or cleans stuff. Or just practice socializing with people and you will be more comfortable. Then you could be a cashier or the person that takes your order.
