I try to be a social person as much as possible. I mean, as much as possible for me, which isn’t very much because I tend to be cranky, cynical and maybe sometimes say things to people that hurts their feelings.
While I’m out I always have a good time, talking about this and that, until it is time to leave, because I do not like goodbyes. Not in the “Oh parting is such sweet sorrow” kind of way, in the “I’m too lazy to say bye” kind of way.
This only really happens when I’m out with a bunch of people. The night is going great, I’ve just killed the room with a joke about backward underwear and then suddenly it hits me – time to go home.
It’s like a switch goes off in my brain, and I have to leave at that exact moment.
Instead of acting like A Normal Person and saying a quick “see you later” to all who are with me, I simply bolt for the nearest exit, disappearing into the night like a crackhead stealing a pair of socks.
My good friends know this about me, so they are ready for it. When I talk to them the next day, they never question why one second they were talking to me and the next second I was gone.
Because that’s what I do.
I hate saying goodbye to every single person that is with me, and my thinking is, if they’re really my friend, I’ll see them again – so what’s the point?
Goodbyes are always awkward. You have to sit there and discuss why you’re leaving, and when you’ll get together again, and blah, blah, please don’t ever wear those pants again, blah, blah, blah.
I really can’t stand it.
So to avoid all of that, I just leave. I have been known to yell an, “I’m out!” as I bolt for the door, and I think that is a nice thing that I do.
Now that I’ve told you that about me, don’t be surprised if we ever meet and I disappear on you. It’s not because I wasn’t having fun or you aren’t a cool person, it’s simply because I hate saying goodbyes and I’d rather just leave than have to deal with them.
So, I guess this is the end of the post.
Talk you later.
Yeah, sure, tomorrow I’ll be posting again, we’ll get together then.
