A colleague of mine lost 4kg recently so I’ve gotten quite used to hearing people tell him that he looks trimmer now. Two days ago, both of us met up with some prospects for lunch. One of these prospects used to work in one of our bank clients some years back and it’s been about 5 years since the prospect saw my colleague. So when we met at the restaurant, the first thing the prospect said was:
“It must have been 5 years since we last saw each other. You seem to have lost some…”
I was perusing the menu & thought to myself, “Aiyah, my colleague sure feel shiok that yet another person is complimenting him on his weight loss”.
So I bo chup’d the conversation till I heard the rest of the sentence.
OMG! I nearly burst out laughing but had to pretend nothing happened & continued going through the menu.
