    4. Your weather small talk not being up to game.


    Them: Nice weather.

    Me: You too.

    5. So you normally just end up going along with how the majority feel, even though you may disagree.


    "I agree. This weather is so lovely."

    6. Having to dress differently from how you feel most comfortable.
