Have you been in conversations that go somewhat like the following one?
Me: Have you seen the ba…..
XYZ: Barbie dolls? Don’t worry, she’s kept them all away.
Me: No, no, I want to know where the ba…..
XYZ: Your bag? It must be by your bed.
Me: No, no, no. I meant ba…..
XYZ: Why do you need the basket? Are you going to the market?
Me: Will you please listen?!!! I am looking for the bottle of pain balm!
In 2018, I am going to burn to a crisp those who dare do this. I have been working hard on my withering look. 😉

I also dislike when people try to finish my sentences! I have one Aunt who does it so constantly that you actually cannot have a conversation with her! I wonder if people like her know they do it??
I wonder too. Perhaps they don’t because no one has ever done it to them?!!
Oh, this made me laugh!
I suspect I tend to do the XYZ part sometimes. Though mainly with my FIL, who struggles to get words out these days, and sighs in relief when I hit on the right word.
I wish I could see your withering look!
You don’t want to 😉 Hehe…
Helping out with those struggling for words is a rather helpful gesture.
I should practice my withering look. It doesn’t seem to work very well.
Sigh, it needs lots of serious effort especially if you are prone to let your soft side take over any moment! 🙂
They believe they are Google.
Haha, yes! Trying to complete your words!

Oh, yes. Absolutely infuriating.
Seriously, most times they are not even right with their inputs.
I would love to see this look of yours! 😉
Happy New Year Shail! 🙂
Lol, I am sure the recipient is not going to love it too much 😉 😁
Well, ‘recipients’ rather! I have more than one of them cluttering up my life 😛

My first LOL of the year! And, if married, you’ve had these conversations. 🙂 Thanks for the smiles and giggles. @sheilamgood at Cow Pasture Chronicles
Oh yes. Definitely ‘if married’!! 😂
