Something to ponder - Is that considered as flirting?

I remembered when I used to work in the office, whenever I talked to male counterpart over the phone, my female colleague liked to tease me and shouted at me:"Stop flirting on the phone!"

This reminded me of what I read here when RG flirted with the cashier girl (where he claimed the cashier girl started it).

Another incident, I used to patronize this Roast Duck, Char Siew stall at a coffeeshop. The guy who prepared and served the food over the counter always like to make fun of me. One day, I teased him back asking him: "Got goose meat? I want goose meat rice today." He was a little stunned and don't know what to reply. Haha.

Is that considered flirting?

I think it was quite harmless trying to joke and add spice to your day as long as you do not overdo it and make sure you choose the right person to tease and not somebody's husband or boyfriend.

But you would not know whether that someone is somebody's husband or boyfriend or not so better to play safe and don't flirt else one day you may find someone chasing you with a weapon and you still don't know why, hehehehe. :)

I agree with you. Sometimes, we just mean to joke or just being friendly but the other person might misunderstand or our partner might misunderstand. It can cause problems. So we have to be careful what we say, how we say and who we say it to.

What the... why you dig up this old post hahaha! I think casual flirt talks like these are harmless lah. Only an idiot would think that it means something serious. :/

I find that in Asia, our culture is weird that we cannot be too friendly with strangers esp in conservative Malaysia. All sorts of nonsensical accusations have been heard in our local courts that became laughing stock.

You were not flirting at all but just being friendly and polite.

I like to make silly joke and sometimes tends to be over friendly which may lead to misunderstanding. After that I keep reminding myself to be careful when speak to others especially male friends. Haha
