Is It Just Me???
I am not sure if I am socially awkward or if other people feel the same way. I am interested in finding out if I am alone in this..
I am completely annoyed by non-meaningful phone calls. I hate sitting on the phone in silence with nothing to say. I can't stand the crap talk "what's up?".... "Nothing.".... What's up with you?" when no one has anything new to say and called for no reason other then they are bored. Truly I would rather be left alone. I don't mind a little chit chat about someone's day or the latest drama in your life. But please don't call me to sit and say nothing and just to breath on the phone during your ride home from work. I am as worn out as anyone else and still have dinner to cook, feed my family and eat, clean up, have playtime, pick up toys, bath my son, and finish bedtime routines all before I can relax. After work is when families eat and unwind correct? Am I alone in this way of thinking?
When I walk around my neighborhood, I try not to see people. If I have the option of turning down a street instead of coming face to face with someone I will. I think it is very odd to walk all the way up to someone while they are in view the entire time. I am never comfortable staring at them till I reach them to say hello, and I feel even more odd if I purposefully look away until I reach them. Is that odd? I feel even more uncomfortable if I have to pass the same person twice.
I will stop here before I sound any worse but I having been wondering about this...
