socially (cue)less : round 2
I’m working on the patience thing. I’m working really hard. But I swear that being hungry and not having a working printer is a lethal combination.
Me: “I don’t understand why YOUR computer prints just fine and yet I have to attach what I’m trying to print to an email and email it to the printer. This is about 3 steps too many and frankly, it just pisses me off.”
Seeing as sunset was more than 10 hours away at this point Ali would be been wise to agree with me and solve my problem, right? But my husband decided instead to address the fact that the email I was sending to the printer lacked a “subject.”
Ali: “How can you send an email with no subject? That’s not right.”
Me: “What’s the problem? Have I offended your printer’s delicate sensibilities?”
Ali: “That’s not the point. It just doesn’t make any sense to have no subject. What if the printer gets confused?”
Me:“Oh that’s right! I forgot the printer has feelings and logic as well.”
At this point my husband nodded – completely satisfied with my response. Which just reiterates that we have made zero progress since my post this past May on his inability to pick up on social cues.
I’ll report back in another few months but frankly, the outlook isn’t too good.
