Communication Breakdown

IT’S TOO HOT IN HERE!

You turned the heat completely off. So, you turn it off?

IT WAS TOO HOT!!

So you turned it off, not down.

Do you feel a draft?

(Shrugs) Yes, because it’s -4 and you turned the heat off.

OH MY GOD! IT’S SO COLD!!

Yes, because you turned the heat off ! Maybe we can turn the heat back on and…

WHAT MAKES YOU THINK THE HEAT WORKS! IT WAS TOO HOT WHEN IT WAS ON!

Yes, but there are levels to the heat. (Fakes a smile, looks at partner) Maybe we can turn it on a little?

(Glances at partners fake smile, to angry to make eye contact) I TRIED TO TURN THE HEAT ON AND IT WAS BOILING!! WHAT!? I’M TOO SENSITIVE RIGHT!?IT’S SO FUCKING COLD NOW!

Of course it’s fucking cold because you can’t think outside the way you feel! (Looks directly at partner fake smile gone). There are levels to the heat. We don’t need to be too hot or too cold.

I’M NOT A FUCKING CHILD, STOP TALKING TO ME LIKE I AM ONE!! (Can’t look at partner) IT’S HOT OR IT’S COLD!!!

There is also warm and chilly. JESUS FUCKING CHRIST!! IT’S NOT ALWAYS ONE OR THE OTHER!!!!

FUCK THIS!!!

No, fuck you. (Looks away)

IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY THEN SAY IT!

I have, many many many times. (Actively refusing to look at partner) I already have.

Storms away, googles divorce.

Storms away, googles how much would it cost to get divorced.

For money, I’m what you call a banquet captain. That means I’m in charge of timing and staff at special events, weddings, benefits, movie premiere parties...ect. I’m also a filmmaker and freelance writer. I’m owned by two cats, Samantha and Harrison Chase who reluctantly allow me to travel, something I’m made to do.
