3. Holding that hug for just a liiittle too long.

4. Saying, "Good. How are you?" after they responded, "Good. How are you?"

5. Rambling about how you're doing as if they already want to know about the drama in your life.

6. Asking where they're from and thinking of people you might know from their hometown.

7. Saying, "What?" even though you could hear them.

8. Not saying, "What?" when you definitely couldn't hear them.

9. Laughing because you couldn't understand what they said and assumed it was a joke.

10. Being super wrong about assuming what they said was a joke.

11. Forgetting that you already posed the question and asking them where they're from again.

12. Not being able to think of anything to talk about and asking them something too personal like how old they are or what their SSN is.
