I spent an hour and a half in the doctor’s waiting room yesterday, which was a perfect opportunity for some intense people watching…and listening. I quickly came to the conclusion that there are some relationship problems in the world:
“Well if that’s the attitude she has, I’ll just remember what she said when it comes time to buy her a wedding gift.”
“You did not! You haven’t seen her since Thanksgiving and you probably won’t see her again ‘til Easter!”
“The last time I saw her she was so disrespectful to her parents I’m surprised they let her move back in with them.”
“I told them we just bought that furniture and they aren’t sitting on it in dirty jeans. They sure aren’t eating in there.”
“They don’t care. It’s all a dog and pony show!”
And that was just the first thirty minutes.
