On days like today, when you may have to fight for some attention, you just have to approach the people you want to talk to and make them hear you. It is time for you to get more aggressive if you want to get anywhere. Whether you want to start a flirtation, score some time with the boss, or just get a grocery clerk’s attention, you’ll have to be the proactive party. Don’t be rude, but do be forceful. You’re smart enough to know the difference.
