Ok, there are certain people out there who really need to learn some things.
Thing no. 1. When you haven’t talked to someone all day, and finally you catch up with them, asking extremely prying questions about where they’ve been every minute of the afternoon won’t make them want to talk to you. It’s one thing to ask how the person’s day was, or ask what they’ve been up to. But asking where they were at 1:00, 2:00 and 3:00, unless you’re a member of the police conducting a murder investigation, will likely provoke the person to ask you to piss off. it will also vault you from the realm of nice friend to creepy stalker. Unless that’s what you’re aspiring to be, stop it now!
Thing no. 2. Every time a friend says, “My friend did that.” You do not need to demand their name and how this person met their friend. You do not know everyone your friend knows, nor do you need to. Get your nose out of their business. It’s one thing if you think you might know the person, but asking about every god damn friend they mention, and then acting insulted that you had never heard of this person before makes you look a little too interested in the details of your friends’ personal lives.
Thing no. 3. When someone isn’t home, and you don’t have an urgent need to get a hold of them, calling their cell phone to track them down isn’t a good idea, especially when you’re really not that close a friend. They likely have voice mail, leave a message and move on. It’s one thing if you’re trying to track them down because they’re supposed to meet you. But when it is 4 in the morning, and they don’t pick up their phone, immediately calling their cell phone will not make them be impressed. it will only impress upon them that you are creepy.
That is all, now if only a few people would learn those lessons well, the world would be a better place.
