You know what I hate?
Lucky for you, I'm going to tell you.

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.

People are not thinking about you as much as you think they are.

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.

The End.
