Today I want to talk to you about the time I was kicked out of the quiet room at the library, and what my hilarious faux pas can teach you about how to handle any awkward situation, and help prevent you from replaying events over and over after the fact.
Fair warning: in this story I am not the hero, I am the villain…
1:02 PM We take the elevator up to the 5th floor, where they have study rooms, periodicals, and the quiet room. The quiet room is designed so that people can work and study in peace.
1:03 PM We settle into the quiet room, we’re the only two people there.
1:03:30 PM Thinking that the room was soundproof, and also wanting to make my wife laugh…I devise a (to me) hilarious plan to play 5 seconds of gangster rap.
1:04 PM I press play. My wife quoted me as whispering “This is what I think of your quiet room.”
