I’m not the easiest person to be around at the moment. The famous Aspie bluntness plus a dose of the morose cynicism with my SAD winter dip makes me tetchy, bitchy, impatient and apt to take things over-literally and to over-explain things to people who often already know stuff perfectly well. I have a tendency to “walking encyclopaedia”-ism at the best of times, and normally I can keep it in check because I understand that what was kinda cute when I was 8 is annoying as hell in a supposed grown-up. Lately it seems I’m pretty crap at the keeping it in check part.
So, here’s an open apology to anybody whom I’ve taken aback or offended via an overly literal and overly informative response detailing things they already perfectly well knew. Please don’t take it as a personal reflection of any sort of judgement I have about any of you in my head individually, I certainly didn’t intend to condescend, it’s just a really bad ‘splainy habit which I’ve not been watchful enough of lately. For those who’ve felt the brunt of it, I’m sorry I inflicted that upon you.
Thanks to those who have called me on it. I needed calling on it. I promise to work harder on keeping the negativities out of my cyber-life – it can only help my meat-life, yes?
