When someone calls or even says your name you as you’re walking down the street or are in a crowd you will most likely turn around or look around even if you happen to know that it can’t be you being called. And you’ll ask, who me? If someone really doesn’t want to be seen or doesn’t want to respond to someone else right then and they get spotted…they’ll ask, who, me? Or if someone has done something they’re not very proud of and gets caught…they’ll ask, who, me? There are many reasons to ask the question and they fall into to two categories: those who want to be called or recognized and those who don’t. The positive aspects of asking are visible and immediate if you choose to respond after the call and your response. You can then contribute to a project, help another, or greet a friend not seen for a while. Although one may not want them to be, the negative aspects are visible to others when you respond with incredulity, guilt, or reluctance in your voice. Once you’ve answered with your “who, me?” you’ve opened yourself up to a conversation that you will most likely find will continue whether you want it to or not. If you are too busy or don’t like the person calling you, you do have the choice of not responding. But it’s very hard not to at least turn to ask if it is you being singled out for some purpose; it’s almost impossible not to respond. Perhaps this is because we all want attention whether it is positive or negative attention. There seems to be a visceral or deeply ingrained response mechanism that prompts one to ask if one is wanted for some purpose that has the words out of our mouths before we can make a conscious decision. Though there are times we may wonder why we responded, we’re probably better off having done so; if we hadn’t responded we would never know what we may have missed by not responding. Curiosity and openness about new or even familiar things can’t help but put us is a position to learn and grow. Don’t you think almost anything could happen when you answer Who, me? to a call?
