Paranoia, paranoia...
Okay, as a result of my previous poll one person is now convinced that everybody is going to suddenly stop trusting them, and thus immediately cut them out of their friends lists without further discussion or explanation, because of what they said in answer to the poll. Sigh.

Perhaps I should have added some kind of disclaimer to the effect that the statements in the ticky-boxes are what you would feel/think/assume in the absence of any other specific information to the contrary from the poster.

And hopefully people are clueful enough to, y'know, talk to each other about things, and discuss it if they're worried about including them on "friends" groups, rather than just going "Argh, they said this on a stupid ticky-box poll, I must SPURN THEM henceforth".

<exasperated sigh>

I'm retrospectively filled with sympathy for the teachers on playground duty at my primary school.

Current Mood: annoyed

*hugs* Thank you.

I know (logically, at least) that it's not my fault, and I also know I'm as prone to behaving childishly as everybody else. Still frustrates me though.

To be honest though it's not so much people-behaving-childishly that I object to (sometimes "neener neener neener" is the only sane response!) so much as people who aren't even aware that they're doing it. I mean, there are times when even the most level-headed and mature of us wants to just stamp and scream and throw a full-scale tantrum, but generally the level-headed and mature ones will look shamefaced afterwards and say "Um, okay, I was behaving like a 5-year-old there, I'm sorry". But wholesale throwing-of-toys-out-of-prams while all the time insisting that this is a rational response to events, now that's a whole different box of sticklebricks.

I never had any sticklebricks. <sulk>

Lego is much cooler, anyway.
