Anyone else walk 10mins from store to home with bags in hand?
That was me last night lol.
When it comes to communication it is a two way street. I have been criticized by aquantinces as being simultaneously too detailed and not specific enough in my speech.
Saying that I remind them of their father or some old man that rambles on at length about nothing and everything at once.
However I find it equally frustrating when some people fly off the handle because of a presumed hidden meaning in my phrasing.
Or that I'm antagonistic when I greet people.
I had that happen last year with a coworker, where I said
"Hello, I hope you're well this morning!"
And the person looked at me with disgust replying
"My brother died last weekend asshole! No I'm not 'FINE'!"
They proceeded to storm off and I was left speechless.
I didn't know what to say.
