Self-Absorption

Did you ever run into someone you haven't seen in a while ... and have a completely one-sided conversation with them?  You ask, "How are you?" and they respond with, "Great!" ...  (pause) ... So you say, "What have you been up to?" ... and they tell you all about their adventures ... (pause) ... And you continue to ask about their lives and their animals and their friends, etc. ... and not once do they ask you how you are, what's been going on in your life, or even spend more than two seconds to thank you for doing them a favor, which is why you ran into them in the first place.

And you walk away not one bit surprised when you consider the source.

Sad.

  1. Yep. I have had a couple friends where every conversation with them was like this. It was always all about them. Could never get one word in. We no longer talk. That isn't the reason why, but I really don't miss those conversations!!
