Pet Peeve

I have a friend who is often done listening to me before I am done talking.

Not cool.

I have actually walked away from her because she is just done.

Also: People, do not check your phone for texts, or read texts, while a friend is in the middle of a story. Or at least explain yourself. It's just NOT NICE.

Oh. yes. I hate hate hate that. Incredibly rude.

Yikes, I agree.

This rule, um, can't apply for small children, though, because if I waited for my kids to NOT be telling me a story before doing anything else, it would be impossible to get anything done.

Oh, I have a friend like this too. She doesn't walk away, but I can see her mentally switch off while I'm talking.

Grrrr....

We need new "tech etiquette" (techiquette). I think many people have gone "nuts" about being connected ALL THE TIME!
