I recently started a new job during a mass hire. Another women, Stephanie, was hired at the same time. She impressed me as shy, awkward, and perhaps a little simple. I wasn't sure. One of the first conversations we had, she mentioned she saw me walking to walk. I told her where I lived and she told me where she lived and I commented that we were neighbors. Suddenly, a light went one. I realized, she was probably one of the higher functioning adults at the assisted living house near me that helps mentally challenged adults. Oh! I get it. That explains her speech patterns. Okay. Got it. For the next several weeks, we had very pleasant, short, uncomplicated conversations. Then one day, I'm walking passed Stephanie as she is speaking to the boss. I am dumbfounded to hear Stephanie speak with authority, long, elaborate sentences one might expect to hear from someone with a PhD. Suddenly, another light went one. Oh, I get it. She thought I was probably a higher functioning adult from said assisted living house in the hood. oh. ooops.

So... do I up my game? Or keep the conversation simple?

Lesson to be learned here, first impressions are not always correct.
