|I want to ask what other peoples opinions on this are before I talk to someone.|
I am working in a tiny conference room. There are 8 of us in here. 5 Indian that speak Hindi with each other 24/7, 2 Chinese that speak Chinese 99% of the time between each other, and then there's me. I feel so awkward just being here, everyone talking with each other like they're best friends.
Monday. Elevator. I ask my coworker how her weekend was. "Oh it was alright, just watched some TV, you?" I already know this is a bullshit response.
Her Indian coworker asks her how her weekend was, and then they just go off for like 2 hours between each other in full on Hindi.
