Social Tourettes

I don’t mean to be an obnoxious prick, it’s just my default setting. A friend got married recently. We were supposed to meet for a drink. He sent me a text message saying, ‘Can’t do that drink until next week – my wife’s dad had a heart attack and he’s in hospital’. I hit reply and typed, ‘Bad news. Was this before or after he took receipt of the bill for the wedding reception?’ and NEARLY PRESSED SEND. What’s the matter with me?

  1. I like that your “default setting” is obnoxious, I will be stealing that.

    I bet your friend needed a laugh. However, your restraint was admirable.

    Richard, do you think you are slowly turning into a sociopath? I think whatever is left of your conscience is stopping you but it will eventually fail.
