I spend all day at work talking to people.
And I could give a flying fuck for quite a few of the people I have to talk to....so hate me. Bothered.
Which means that on my day off or at the weekend I like silence, or listening to the radio or talking to people I choose to engage with.
This afternoon I had my hair done at my regular salon...and the hairdresser and the hair washer person are lovely but why oh why can I not just hold up a sign saying 'YOU ARE VERY NICE BUT I DON'T WANT TO TALK'........let me just sit here with my eyes closed until you're done......
Well I suppose I could but then they really would think me peculiar wouldn't they? and I feel obliged to join in with trying to be like every one else and then we all witter on about the weather and Christmas and this and that shite and I grit my teeth and smile.
I would like to be a nicer person truly I would but FFS when will someone open a hairdressers where it is OK to say nowt.
You just turn up, say what you want, they do it, you pay up and leave.....and nobody feels odd about it.
There...bet you don't like me now do you???
