It's Friday night and here I sit blogging.

Am I pathetic or what???? Hubby and some friends went to play golf so here I sit with the dogs and the birds on a Friday night. I tell you married life is exciting :)

I have a little rant. I can't use names and I can't be specific in case they read this, so I apologize in advance if it doesn't make sense (didn't I do a rant about that ??).

Why can't people answer the question you asked?? Does anyone else have this problem?? I have it really bad with one particular person, but I find it happens frequently. I ask, "where is the door" and they answer, "you can't leave yet." Okay, I didn't ask if I could leave I asked where the door was. This drives me absolutely crazy. If I wanted to leave I would ask to leave. I didn't ask to leave I asked where the door was. Maybe I was going to throw you through it!! Did you ever think of that???

Along that same vein is people who don't listen completely. They are so busy waiting for a break in your talking so they can jump in with what they want to say that they don't really hear what you're saying. I'm not sure that makes sense, let me see if I can make an example clear. We were talking about the Virginia Tech shooting and this person said, "what did he do in the 2 hours between shooting?" I respond "he went to his dorm room, put together the package for NBC, went to the post office, etc." To which they respond, "yeah, but what did he do for 2 hours?" Ummm, hello, did you hear what I said. That's not the best example but it's all I can come up with right now. It's like that though.

These people also claim they are really good listeners. Ummm, yeah, not so much. I pride myself on being a very good listener (I actually listen to what's being said) and a direct, straight forward person. I ask the question I want an answer to. I don't ask one question when I'm really looking for a different answer.

Ugghhh!!! This just makes me crazy. Anyway, I had to get that out. I'm sorry if it's cryptic and unclear, it's the best I could at the time.
