A HUGE Pet Peeve of Mine.......

Tuesday, July 20, 2010....


I know I typically rant and rave on Wednesdays, but there is something that just bugs the crap out of me.

When I call to talk to you, don't ask me about other people you're too lazy to call -- especially if you know my relationship with that individual is strained...

Don't expect me to share all details of my life if you're not willing to tell me anything about yours. Seriously, I'd be happy to share the details of my life with you if a) you were willing to listen; or b) willing to have a two-way conversation and tell me anything that is going on with you.

There. I'm done.

Oh, before you tell me to confront this person, I have. They know it, but think it's excusable behavior. I almost believe they think it charming.

Would this person miss talking with you if you stopped talking to them? It doesn't sound like you are having satisfactory conversations with this person as it is right now.

Brian Miller said...

bet you feel better now though, right? and i agree with techno...

TechnoBabe - Yes and no. It's more of a matter of them understanding things. This person is just this way and it really falls back on me re-categorizing his capabilities at friendship (they'll do anything for you if you ask -- a good crisis person, but basic friendship stuff there is a disconnect).

I'm pulling away. Wow, I've been doing a lot of re-categorizing of people lately. Maybe, it was time for a good Spring cleaning in my life.

You can TOTALLY count this as a rant, if you want. :)

I hope you feel better soon. Internet hugs.

I wouldn't be dialing that number very often!

Jane - thanks

BV - it is on rare occasion that I do.

P said...

Yuck. I hate people like that. Hope you feel a bit better now you've put it out here!

I have a frenemy who is the same way it is annoying and I have not talked to them in almost a year because of stuff like this ...

DB said...

I agree and I think you could have ranted more about "bad friends" and habits in general....

That's rude, no matter how you slice it. And suspicious.

Linking up tomorrow :)

P – I do feel better, but really feel better after the way I handled a recent exchange between us.

Adrienne – Conversations are definitely dwindling down.

DB – But this REALLY bothered me.

Mrs. 4444 - I’ve come to believe they are a true social misfit and don't know if they'd know they were doing anything wrong.
