Sometimes I have interactions with people and I wonder if it is just me- am I just different from everyone else. I’m kind of a need to know person- when I ask for information, I’m just not looking for every damned detail under the sun, I just want to know what I need to know.
This is especially true for email- if someone can not tell me why they are contacting me in the first two sentences, I’ve already lost interest. I don’t need a five paragraph introduction- you contacted me, what the fuck do you want? And I don’t mean that in a nasty way, it’s just get to the damned point. I have a friend who, every time they need something, they call, and I can just hear it in their voice that they want something, but I am forced to sit there and ride through the five minutes of “how have you been how is this I was wondering would it be possible would you mind would it be ok I have a favor to ask” and 90% of the time I just interrupt them with “what do you want fer fuck’s sake?”
I mean I will do whatever they want if they can, it’s just the beating around the bush that makes me mental.
