DamselODistress Posted November 8, 2011 Share Posted November 8, 2011 Why, when it's obvious that you are NOT paying attention(because you're working on the computer, have headphones in, and haven't looked up in an hour), do people talk to you about what just happened on TV or in the movie they're watching or ramble on in a long story about their day at work? My mom and sister are freaking notorious for this! Just because I'm sitting on the couch in the living room does not mean I am willing to have a conversation; the headphones should indicate that. They do it when I'm completely engrossed in a book, too. They've told me that if I don't want to be interrupted, I shouldn't be in an open part of the house. That doesn't seem fair to me, and I've gotten exasperated several times and snapped that I'm not paying attention, don't care, and don't want to know. Ten minutes later, they're at it again.
