Yes I’m a type “A” personality. I like get it out and get it done. Not a lot of patience for you (unless you’re a cat).
Since I’ve gotten older people started talking slower. Or maybe they go down “rabbit holes” before they get to the point. The problem with that is that you can forget your point while navigating out of the burrows.
Occasionally I do it myself. I get too involved with the details and WAP! I forget what the point is. (Sometimes I even forget WHAT I was talking about. Damn rabbits!) So embarrassing. If my synapses are snapping I make up another point but usually not.
The more time you have, the more you embellish. There is nothing worse than getting in back of a senior who it engaging the cashier in a nonsensical conversation. (Insert eye rolls) The cashier is being polite while the line piles up. She shoots an apologetic smile to me. (I may be just like that someday so I shoot her a “that’s ok” smile back.)
I suppose this can happen with younger people but I’ve never seen it. They are almost always on their phone even when in check-out lines. They are late for wherever they are supposed to be. They don’t like to use their mouth to communicate. I’m often surprised that they don’t text the number of donuts in the bag to the cashier rather than say it.
There was a friend who would call people “Edith Bunker” if they were scooting around the point. (Oh wait, that would be me!) Edith was the queen of circular conversations. (Google her if you don’t know who she is!)
Since retirement I’ve been working on giving my personality an alphabet ride. I’m not at Type “B” yet but I’m definitely a Type “A-“. The difference is that I wait an extra minute before I roll my eyes, bang my head on the table and say “Get on with it Edith!”
Definitely working on this! This is going to happen to you too. You will either be like me or Edith!
