bemused

This weekend I was at a party hanging out with some friends who are also in tech, and this dude I didn’t know came up to us and started to make conversation. Of course we asked him what he did for a living because that’s what you do when you don’t know someone at a party:

Friend: “So what do you do?”

Dude: “Oh, I work at a startup.”

Friend: “Oh really? What do you make?”

Dude: “Oh, we make Internet software.”

There was a beat and then my friend laughed and said, “No, we’re all in tech. What kind of Internet software?” He clearly thought we were just some clueless women in the corner. Oh, my friend.
