I had a memorable appointment with a young woman who needed a new resume. I am a professional resume writer and coach. She brought her boyfriend, which was fine. He seemed a little young, but he wasn’t my boyfriend. I thought they were both in their 20’s.

Irene Marshall_Tip Call Out -Have you ever been speechless during a business meeting

My L-shaped desk was set up, so I had the primary monitor with the keyboard. She sat across from me with her own monitor. Her boyfriend sat next to her.

I eventually realized that something unexpected was happening. He could not keep his hands off of her. They were playing “footsie”. He was rubbing her legs, nuzzling her neck. They were not teenagers, and this was crazy!

It was embarrassing, and I didn’t know what to do. He was just “getting busy.” I could not believe this was happening. I was speechless.

All I could do was ignore it as if this was just a regular business meeting. But I really wanted to say that old saying: “Hey! Why don’t the two of you get a room??? !!!!”

But I couldn’t bring myself to do it. They were young enough that they could have been my grandchildren. We finished her resume, she paid me, and they left. Then I could not stop laughing.

What were they thinking? This is just a fun story to tell.
