If you DGAF, then STFU.
Perhaps this may be just a pet-peeve of mine, but I am curious to know why people ask personal questions when they truly don’t care.
“What did you do today?”
“Oh my God, you wont believe it! After work, we went to the mall and ended up bumping into my favorite celebrity!”
I mean – REALLY?! No matter what is said, even if it was something as outrageous as I pet a tiger on the nose, it never fully mattered in the first place. Then why on earth would you ask to begin with? I realize some people may start such conversations simply because they’re bored and would like someone to talk to, but if that’s the case, then why send one word responses? How is this at all productive?
Two days ago, I got into an accident, and the exact conversation was as follows:
“Hey, how are you?”
“I’m okay… Got into a car accident, still have a major headache. You?”
“Bored, doing homework.“
Can you tell me what just happened right there? Did I just tell you I was in a car accident and you honestly couldn’t even be bothered enough to ask if I was okay or what happened? Mind you, the accident wasn’t major, the car of the driver was completely wrecked and he ended up with minor injuries. But based off of what little information I gave, you aren’t even just a tad concerned for my well being? Especially since you gave me the title of being your “sister“! I myself, would have assumed that since the person responded to my message that everything is okay, but out of common courtesy would at least asked to confirm or asked what happened instead of just completely dismissing them.
Am I the only one who feels this way?
