Learn to make small talk

Taking a elevator with a stranger is always an awkward moment for me. What I usually do is like a martyr facing interrogation. Keep my mouth shut, stare at a spot on the wall, and not let a single word slip out of my lips. Time to make a change.

EHow.com is my source of enlightenment this time.

  • Read a lot, especially something different from programming.
  • Watch some tvs. Get in touch with different cultures.
  • Write down funny stories I heard on my blog.
  • Think out several topics I can always resort to.
  • Practice. Next time I came across a stranger, chat with him/her. Cheer me up...
