I simply needed to know if he was finished with his shower so I could move on to the next task that required water. I guess he thought that I could tell by looking, but I could not.
He was sharp and sarcastic “What, you think I just put my head in for a minute and called it a shower!”
Instead of responding at all I just walked down stairs. Of course that could be end of it. He had to yell down about how ridiculous my question was. I did not bother to respond. I know he hurts and he is miserable. I truly hope those are not the last words he speaks to me. I am so tired of people intentionally trying to push my buttons.
I believe for the rest of the day I will keep my headphones on playing music and avoid all verbal communication. (oh my thinking is flawed, then he couldn’t say anything else to me.) I guess I just best get on with what needs to be done and ignore the rest.
