It's true. I've been thinking about it lately and I've come to the conclusion that I'm too sensitive. Here's a few reasons why:
If there's no exclamation point in your text message my first thought is "Omg what's wrong?"
If there's no exclamation point in my text message I feel like I'm being rude.
If there's a "Please [insert task here]" in a work email, without a smiley face, I'm gonna think I'm in trouble. When you really think about it, the word "please," while intended to convey politeness, is actually one of the more bossy, kind of demanding words, no?
If someone writes a vague, passive aggressive Facebook status, and coincidentally it happens to be an offense I've committed at some point in my life I'm gonna think you're writing it about me and get all concerned about it like, "Oh my gosh is she writing that about me?? Did I upset her?? I hope she's not mad at me!"
I know. I'm ridiculous.
The second I honk my horn at someone on the road I instantly feel bad about it.
One of my fears in life is mean comments on my blog.
My feelings get hurt when Nate and I come home from work, at the same time mind you, and the dogs run past me to greet Nate. Like, really hurt.
In light of today's revelations, I feel so bad for Ron Weasley (ahem, a fictional character) after JK Rowling revealed she thinks Hermione should've married Harry instead (ahem, also fictional characters). There's concern that Ron wouldn't have been able to "really make her happy" in the long run. Sure, pile on the ginger.
Some call it a slow news day, I call it a paradigm shift in the Potter-verse.
Are you too sensitive?? Tell me I'm not the only one with exclamation point thing...
