When do things become too personal for LinkedIn?
The other night, after LinkedIn suggested Scott as a possible connection for, oh, about the 20th time, I decided, yah know, why NOT reach out to this former colleague?
During my tenure at my former company I DID get “chummy” with one guy. We have both since left the company.
Mind you, we NEVER spoke about, anything, at all. Not before or after. Only that one night. That night I was out in San Francisco with a friend, drunk off dirty martini’s. Just having a good time and I look over and who do I see but Scott! The kind of awkward guy that sat, say about 50 feet, at most, from my desk.
At this point I had been working at this office for a little over a month. I had a grand mal seizure at work three weeks earlier. He witnessed the incident, the twitching the shaking, the passing out. The whole messy shebang. I also knew that he, even though was just 26 years old, had suffered a heart attack and now had a pacemaker.
That night we were friends, we confided in one another and we, might, have had sex.
Yes, I know how horrible that sounds. I was wasted. We definitely got DOWN. Just how far down, I have never truly known.
This was over a year ago now.
Yesterday, after the prompt by the professional social media site, I sent him this message:
“Hey, so, that night we hooked up, I was fairly wasted, did we like, actually have sex, I honestly don’t remember if we did the actual act.
If we did I just had a full STD panel and you’d be happy to know I’m totally clean
Ok hope all is well,
Hahahaha. Man I love being THAT crazy chic sometimes.
I have yet to receive a response. I don’t expect one
