I think one of the things I need to work on is that I sometimes make huge errors in the way I carry myself when I am talking to people. Today I took the taxi home because it was snowing heavily and I was worried the bus would be delayed by 2 hours the last time we had this much snow fall in the middle of the day. I live close to the school so taxi rides are pretty cheap for me. The taxi driver stopped talking to me because I made the mistake of telling him that the TAs were on strike at my school and that you now had to walk 1 mile from the university to get to the nearest bus stop because the school administration had blocked off traffic lanes to the school to prevent student confrontation with the TAs. He thought I was lazy and decided that I wasn't worth talking to. How do I improve the way I carry myself in the future?
