Pointless Conversations

Posted: April 20, 2013 in Random

I’m not very good at chit-chat. Part of the reason is that I don’t care for pointless conversation. I honestly don’t care how you feel about the weather, etc. My brother provided a good example this morning.

He called to sync up since I’m supposed to help him move a refrigerator. During the conversation, he said, “Be prepared. It’s a big one.” How the hell am I supposed to prepare for that? I can appreciate the warning a little, but not much. Doesn’t change that I’m going to help him. But, realistically, how am I supposed to prepare? This was a pointless remark. He could’ve simply told me the time and place to meet him and then hung up. It would have saved his time and mine.
