Maybe I'm the asshole here, I don't know...but I'm just not a huge fan of talking on the phone. In fact I'd much rather text, even if it means reading and typing long ass texts back and forth. I don't know what it is about the phone, but it annoys me. So, needless to say, so do people who love talking on the phone for more than a couple minutes at a time. I don't want to be rude and tell them to shut up because I want to hang up, so I usually answer with one or two word answers, hoping they eventually get the hint. My husband, obviously, is not one of those people, though. He hates texting and constantly chooses to call me instead and then just goes on and on and on about shit that I'm either totally uninterested in, or just don't have an opinion on, much less a thoughtful response. And he's one of those people that loves talking a lot in general, he talks a lot more than even I do when I'm writing or typing (which is really saying something cause when I type, I talk a lot), and he can just go on and on without stopping for at least an hour, so on the phone its no different. And like I said, if he were texting me instead, it'd probably be different. But something about hearing it on the phone just annoys the bullshit out of me, so after I answered ''yeah, okay'' about 5 times to what he said, he finally asks me what's wrong and why I seem pissed off. I know he wouldn't understand the whole phone thing I just explained and would take it personally that it annoys me to talk to him on the phone (even though I love him to death and it has nothing to do with him in particular), so I lied and said nothing, and he didn't believe me and I wouldn't be surprised if this turns into a fight now when he gets home. I mean, like I said, maybe I'm the asshole here, maybe it's insane that the phone bothers me this much, but I can't help it. Every time I find myself talking on the phone and the conversation lasts more than a couple minutes, I eventually start to feel steam coming out of my ears. Endrant.
