Reason I Hate People #12 - 09/24/04 06:57 AM

Just got an e-mail from a longtime friend that works at this same company...<br><br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>starting to feel like you're avoiding me............ :-(<p><hr></blockquote><p>I get this e-mail from her roughly once a month. I'm sorry that I can't sit next to her to babysit her feelings on an hourly basis, but I'm BUSY WORKING!!! Jesus, why are some people so dependent on constant affirmation of a friendship with mindless chit chat?<br><br>Maybe I'll set up a script that will e-mail her every hour with a message that says "I'm giving you attention right now. I'm not avoiding you. We're still friends."<br><br>Some people, I tell ya!<br><br>

Now, I'm not stereotyping but here's a little piece of advice about women:<br><br>99.9% of women LOVE communication, and while a man might not think twice about not talking to one of his other male buddies for months at a time (and still pick right up where they left off), women take it personally and think they must have done 'something wrong' when you don't make contact every once in a while...<br><br>Something in the DNA, I guess. That and shoes. <br><br>[color:red]C'mon...you know me.</font color=red>

I wish! <br><br>I've had a bunch of people in my life that thought unless I was in constant contact with them it was a sign of deliberate avoidance. Well, maybe I have a life (what little there is of it) of my own to live, you narcissistic a-holes!!<br><br>I really think each and every person should live ALONE for at least two years of their life to be weened from their dependence of others to survive. It builds character (and your right arm). <br><br>

My sister-in-law has a management position working for the state in education. She has two women working under her that if she doesn't come in in the morning and say hello to them separately using each of their names they are mad all day. A blanket hello will not do. "You didn't say Hello to me."<br>Crazy. I am lucky enough that the weirdest people at work think I am their friend because I have to help everyone with their computers. They confide to me things I really would rather not know.<br><br>

You can't ignore someone showing up at your apartment at 11pm, or waiting in the parking lot for you to leave for work.<br><br>

Do you get hang-up calls at home after you've told someone not to call you? (Or on your cell...didn't you recently dump your landline?)<br><br>Do the *57 Trace Call thing.<br><br>I had an stalking ex-girlfriend charged with harrassment-by-communications using that. If you need more info about how I worked the process and what I said to the cops and the District Justice, just let me know.<br><br>

On the other side of the fence, I have a friend who it litteraly takes an act of God to get together with. 9 out of 10 times we make plans, she bails at the last minute. <br>There's nothing going on between us. Just friends, but I see her about once every three months. I am at the point where I'll suggest we hook up but already have plans becuse I know she'll say no, or cancel at the last minute. <br><br>That I really don't get. None of my other friends do that.<br><br>

Yep . . . I have a friend who does that too. . .

That's a sure sign they have NEVER had to make it on their own. <br><br>Unfortunately, too many people live in a fantasyland where life is constantly one big party. Some grow out of it by the time they're 30, an increasing number of people never do. <br><br>

I agree... it's likely an age thing but when you think about it, up until your mid twenties most people are given a very tight, easily accessed social group through school. Then suddenly it's cold turkey when you hit the real world... you're friend is probably more upset about "the real world" than she is about not being able to connect with you. You're just an affirmation of reality she doesn't want to face.<br><br>What's even scarier than "friends" that do this? Imagine your BOSS being in that phase... *shudder*<br>

Yep I know people even men that really needs to be surrounded with people all day and they are the ones that have tons of children. That would drive me nuts - I am a very private person and certainly don't mind being alone.<br><br>One guy I know took a 2nd job as a Tour Bus driver just to be around people. Hes got 3 kids a wife and the 1st job he works in a department store - talk about needy people. Oh well the fear of being alone is to much for some.<br><br>Sam<br>Did you dip the pen in the companies ink. Sounds like it or she wants the pen??<br><br>
