There are certain things that happen every now and then that make me thank God I'm still single!
One of my pet peeves is someone who attacks me with their stories/questions the second I walk into the room. I have this problem at work. The minute I walk around the corner and approach my office, certain people immediately start asking questions. I'm still carrying my purse, haven't reached my desk yet, haven't drank my tea yet, don't talk to me!
I just found out recently that this extends to the house as well. Last night I walked in, totally exhausted. All I wanted to do was go to my room and just relax. Instead, I got caught by a family member who talked endlessly. By the time I made it upstairs, I got intercepted by another family member with more stories. While I love them, and would love to hear their stories, there are times where you just need a couple minutes to breathe before your brain and ears can function. Not a lot of time, just enough time to get to my room, get into my home attire, get comfortable and then they can talk as much as they want!
Will people please follow the "5-minute rule"?
