It's Quiz Time!

This is a major pet peeve of mine. Why is it, when people haven't heard from/spoken to you in a while, the next conversation you have with them always looks like this:

Them: I haven't seen you in a while!
Me: Yeah, I know.
Them: So, how are you!
Me: Still alive. But then you knew that.
Them: So, how is (project you were working on last time I saw you) going?!
Me: It's not done.
Them: What about (other project).
Me: Not done.
Them: What about . . .
Me: No change.
Them: . . .
Me: Are we done here?

This is why I drop off the radar for months at a time. If you actually HAVE SOMETHING you want to TELL ME ABOUT, then by all means start up a conversation. But when all I get is a bunch of inane drivel followed by an impertinent quiz, it's going to be months before you hear from me again, I guarantee it.

My life is boring. Those demanding status reports are going to be disappointed.
