Ok, this isn’t a list of compulsions my chosen person has, but she does things repeatedly that drive me so effing mad that i jumped on the chance to move 2500 miles away when it arose, and used getting away from her on the “pros” list.
My aunt; yes i love her but come on.
Every telephone call is laced with the following scenario, many many times within each conversation, on ANY and EVERY subject or matter you could bring up in conversation.
sounds of water running in the back ground
her: whats that sound?
me: im getting a drink of water
Immense urge to scream & hang up
me: because, im thirsty?
next sound, wind blowing, why? because im outside, Ohhhhhhh.
next sound, keyboard clicking, why? because im checking my email, Ohhhhhh.
her: so what are you doing
her: (can you see where this is going) Ohhhhhhhh
and then she just keeeeeps on talking.
We will underemphasize her compulsion to tell everyone she meets, everything that is going thru her head at any given moment in time.
bear with me, i NEED to get this off my chest, wow this feels incredible.
I’m on the phone with her, and she calls a Dr’s office for me on 3-way so i can get their fax number. Ring ring, Hello. So i ask for the fax number and just as the lady begins to say goodbye and hang up, my aunt chimes in with "IM ON HERE TOO, IM HER AUNT, SHE’S MOVED TO LA AND WE NEED TO GET THE FAX NUMBER SO THE NEW DOCTOR COULD FAX YOU THIS RELEASE FORM TO GET HER RECORDS, AND I LIVE HERE IN TOWN JUST DOWN THE ROAD FROM WHERE SHE USED TO LIVE AND IM CALLING ON 3 WAY SO SHE DOESNT HAVE TO MAKE A LONG DISTANCE CALL <<<<< this continues for a good 5-10 minutes as the lady desperately tries to say Ok, goodbye, wherein im praying to GOD that I didnt give my name for them to link such embarassment to and add a bunch of charges to my bills for payback>>>
Same goes for being in a restaurant, drive thru, mall, grocery store -
oh god please just make it stop.
my condolences to any of you who experience similar or worse on a regular basis
