I had to look up that word. Is it multitasking or multi-tasking? I think I have it right but if not, please correct me so I’ll know next time.
Vince and I went to town today and had the funniest conversation on the way home. For the last several days. I’ll say something and sometimes it’s a long sentence and he’s sitting right next to me and he doesn’t even hear me. He hears the TV. He hears the radio. He hears his friend on the phone. If I whisper something I don’t necessarily want him to hear . . he hears. I know . . he’s just tuning me out!
Today coming home from town, I said something and he totally ignored me.
Me: Vince! Are you going to answer me?
Vince: I didn’t hear you.
Me: How can you not hear me? I’m sitting right here!
Vince: Do you think I’m just sitting here waiting for you to say something?
Me: When someone starts talking, the other person usually just starts listening!
Vince: I’m not good at multitasking.
Me: What else are you doing?
Then, he kinda started halfway listening. Twice I said something and he said “Huh?” I told him . . I’m going to start doing this to you and you’ll see how it feels.
We’re going down the highway and guys were out cutting hay in a field.
Vince: Looks like they’re cutting hay today.
He almost repeated it and we both had a good laugh.
I could continue to complain about him not hearing me but I’ll just use this to my advantage. “Oh, Vince. You didn’t know I was getting another dachshund? I told you and you didn’t say no so I figured you approved!”
No, I won’t do that but I’m betting if something like that happened, he would figure out a way to multitask and listen to me more.
