I so agree with you!!!! I can't stand for people to interrupt me when I'm talking, either. It causes me to lose my train of thought and I forget what it was I was going to say.
Agreed! Especially on TV talk shows (they should know better!).
What bugs me most is when I interrupt MYSELF, which I do all the time (off in the weeds...), and lose track of what I was actually saying. Duh me!
your husband must know my man. I always have this problem to the point that I don't want to cook. I think that I should just post signs all over the kitchen.
Yes! That should've been on my list--"helpers" who try to re-engineer your process, which wasn't broken in the first place! I hate that. Especially when I ask for advice on how to do what I'm doing and they want it done all differently instead. Erg!
fpherj48, I laughed at some of yours! SO true (longest answer)! Especially nosy people: if I didn't/don't tell them, none of their business!
Impaired drivers are cretins! Alcohol, drugs, elderly, young, stupid/careless/aggressive... ALL DANGEROUS!
While I do agree with you that some parents go FAR beyond "liberal" with their kids...thankfully there are still adults who raise their kids most properly. (This is more than HABIT...it's LIFESTYLE)
Wow, I SO agree! I also know "good" parents, though.
Unfortunately, even the best parents' kids have tantrums now and then at certain ages. How annoying for everyone that parents don't remove kids having tantrums from public areas, though!
Yes, that is one of my "life' lessons" - NEVER give advice, even if the person has asked for it. They don't want advice, they already know what to do, they just want someone to help them find their own way and that is by LISTENING, not talking.
I don't mind suggestions as long as it sounds like a suggestion rather than telling me what to do.
I'm with kathyjones1952@at! I appreciate suggestions given in the right tone of voice. It's the "You should..." statements that make me grind my teeth, not the well-meaning ones. And, I have a higher tolerance for some people's advice than others.
I think you're right that lying can be a 'bad habit', not just an "out". Bad habits should and usually can be broken, especially in this case--try!
Flat truths can be bad, too: "It looks bad on you" may be true but finesse or suppress that opinion!
