This year has been particularly difficult in terms of communication for me and Jay. We find ourselves not hearing each other, not saying what needs to be said, cutting each other off, short-changing our conversations, and throwing mini temper tantrums.
Oh, but let me clarify. Who is to blame for this? AT&T. And Comcast. And Xfinity.
Hi, you three…you are responsible for all the above. When we literally can’t hear each other because of a bad connection, when we don’t say what needs to be said because we literally didn’t hear what the other just said, when the internet literally cuts off our video chat, and when our conversations are literally short-changed because my bedroom has zero signal (except for that one particular spot on my desk and at the foot of my bed—one move away from those spots and our conversation is dunzo).
Lol, I’m sorry, did I scare you? Justin and I are great. This is just another angry rant at technology, which doesn’t seem to put me more towards even the upper half of the list of people that need good signal so they can talk to their loved ones across the country. Don’t they have a list like that! Dammit they should.
Although…I have to say the mini temper tantrums part maaaaay be true on my part (I may be 25, but I can cry if I want to, lol). And Justin has been so patient with me. When he sees or hears me getting impatient with the bad connections, he just lets me have it. And sometimes I need to have it, because talking to my boo thang is my relaxation, my therapy, my unwinder, my diffuser, my means for feeling peaceful. And when that’s taken away from me, well, sometimes that just leads to a breakdown. It only makes sense. So Jay, I love you for that.
Not much can be changed about this whole situation, so in the meantime, it’ll be rant rant rant.
Rant done, for now.
