*Taken from The Meaning of Liff
I don't know about you guys, but I work in an office. My office has long and narrow corridors. My company is also quite small. Therefore, when walking through these corridors, I am often faced with the awkward situations that generally come when you spot a casual acquaintance walking toward you from the other end.
After several years of making stupid faces, feigning blindness, and blatantly ignoring people, I finally turned to Douglas Adams and John Lloyd's essential guide to The Meaning of Liff. This little book has helped me through many a rough patch, by allowing me to see that I am not alone in life. This awkward corridor syndrome that I seem to have, is not only my problem. It seems, by the presence of the following six words in Adams' and Lloyd's book, to be lots of people's problems.
Perhaps, by sharing these words, as well as the book's corresponding website with you, I can bring comfort and confidence into the your lives, and the lives of others as well.
Read on for the authors' mission statement, as well as the six words that will change the way you walk down a corridor.
