Have you ever wanted to just scream, "SHUT UP!!!!"

Wednesday, March 09, 2011

There are days I cannot handle the sound of other people's conversations!! I am sitting here at work tonight and two of my co-workers were here and carrying on a conversation in the same area I am working in. The volume was a little loud, and it was just between the two of them, but it made me feel like screaming. I feel this way when I work the evening shifts, and I know I will be subjected to this one more time tonight at shift change. Having the television on when I am at work or at home doesn't bother me. Also the police radio is talking in the background and that is getting on my nerves, too. One of the neighboring states feels the need to read an announcement every hour. These messages are provided to all law enforcement nationwide. We all know about them, so I don't know why they have to read them.
Does this irritate me because I am not a conversationalist? I don't always have a lot to say, partly because I don't know what to say unless I am talking about work to my co-workers. The people I am around seem like they barely breathe when they talk. There is never a lull in the conversation so if I did have anything to add, I would be out of luck anyway.
There are times their voices feel like fingernails on a chalkboard in my ears. Am I the only one that feels this way?

    Oh yes. I am right there with you. My office is located in a house (real estate office) and my office is right by the kitchen. So everyone walks to and from the kitchen through my office. And most of the time, they stop in my office to talk to me or others. Drives me nuts. The phone will ring and the person on other end will ask me if I'm having a party in my office. My idea of a party at work would be having the entire office to myself! So no, you are definitely not alone in this. Sometimes I think it is because of wanting to isolate myself, but other times it's just because co-workers can be freaking annoying! emoticon

    *Hugs* sounds like things have really been getting you down lately. Feeling chronicly irrated at others intruding on your solitude. It's hard when you feel that around you the world seems inane. Be easy on yourself. What are your options? How could you reframe your thoughts or do you want to? Just a thought, might this be at play?


    Sending you light and good energy. emoticon
