know what I hate?
I hate when people give you the silent treatment. Sure, it serves a purpose, but it's a pretty cowardly purpose of you ask me.
I was a pro at giving the silent treatment...WHEN I WAS SIX. (and even then it was called sulking and pouting not the "silent treatment") Then I realized something very important.
So, all this time I'd been thinking "this'll really teach 'em" they were going about their business not giving it a second thought. GAAAAH! All that wasted energy on my part. Humph.
Today I'm not the Silent Treater, I'm the Silent Treatee, as it were. I find it amusing, actually! I find my head spinning with "oooo, this is exciting, what will happen", "when will it end", "will my e-mails be returned". And then my eyes roll and I shrug with a brief "meh..." and go on with my day. Life's too short, and I'm too busy.
I suggest if you're giving someone the silent treatment, buck up and face it, it's probably not as effective as you might think.
