Shut Down

I was having trouble coming up with a post today and then I went to tell Diana something while I was in the kitchen. I immediately got told "I'm trying to watch this show!" And then it hit me; I had just been shut down. Thus, this post.

I absolutely hate getting shut down. If I need to tell someone something, it annoys me to no end when someone stops me from saying it. At work today, I went into my boss's office to show her that a package that I was supposed to have gotten two weeks ago just got delivered. I showed her the packet that came with it and she took it and started reading it. When I said, let me have it back, she stuck her index finger up to tell me "Oh no, I am reading and you will not talk to me." I, of course, paraphrased the meaning of the finger. I finally got fed up with it and said, "Just give me the packet, I have work to do and don't have time for this."

I am not going to be hypocritical about this. I am as guilty of this as anyone. I admit it, but I still hate people that do this, people like me. My mind works like this. If something comes into my head I try to say it, because if I don't I will probably forget it. So, if I start speaking, shut the hell up! This goes for you. Yes, you.

That is all,

Newt

People might perk up and listen to what you had to say if you said anything important!

Also, I tend to remember Diana telling us that you bought a couple of new albums for a road trip in the recent past and would not let her talk to you because you wanted to listen to them... WOW!

People doing this does also annoy me though! And did you really say that to your boss... "I don't have time for this!"????

Hell yes I said it. I didn't have time for it. I have more than enough work to keep me busy and when she was holding me up, I told her.

And telling Diana she couldn't talk was done before the CD was in the player. I didn't cut her off from speaking so that isn't a valid point.
