Something that bugs the crap out of me is yelling across the house to someone instead of just walking to wherever they are and speaking in a nice, even, low voice.
It bugs me, but I do it all the time and annoy MYSELF. Despite my repeated self-reminders to STOP YELLING ACROSS THE HOUSE, I have such a hard time stopping. I’ll yell downstairs to Carson and Ella to say that dinner is ready, shake my head at myself in disgust, and promise myself to STOP. It’s just a few extra steps and those extra steps would really make for a much calmer and quieter house. The next evening I’ll remember not to yell and instead calmly go downstairs and tell Carson and Ella to come up for dinner. Such a sense of accomplishment! Such a sense of calm! So quiet! Until the next night when I yell again for them to come to dinner.
It’s a vicious, vicious cycle.
And I wonder why my children yell. Geez louise.
What category do you fit into? Are you a yell-across-the-house kind of person or a walk-across-the-house-to-get-their-attention kind of person?
On a completely unrelated note, I just want to thank those of you who recommended that I read The Book Thief a few weeks ago. WOW! I LOVED THAT BOOK SO MUCH! DO YOU HEAR ME?! I LOVED THAT BOOK!!!!!! SUCH AN AMAZING STORY!
Damn, I really need to stop yelling.
