Moral of the Month...

...seems to be something along the lines of



jalenstrix is highly irritated by displays of poor form involving communication.



This Smarch in particular has seen several instances of exceedingly poor form involving someone deciding to simply cease communication instead of telling me what's going on. I realize many people say they prefer directness even if the news is bad, but they actually don't mean it. As far as I can tell, I really do mean it. Though it may suck to hear the bad news at that very moment, it's far easier later on to know "Ah yes, that's what happened" instead of "Nope...still no clue why that happened. Could happen again, and I still wouldn't know what to do."

That sounds like thwarted expectations of sex to me.

Interesting. It was mostly romantic thwart, though also including a healthy dose of no-you're-not-hired thwart.

In sitcom-world (aka. America) romantic expectations are merely expectations of sex with an extra step.

By the by, what's your schedule like from now till Wednesday? I'll be coming to DC for a flying visit - might you have time / inclination to meet?

Yeah, I hate not knowing why someone suddenly stopped with the communication. I do the idiotic thing and keep bugging them, at a rate of once a month or so, until I find out, or get someone else to find out. Not out of the hope of achieving anything productive, but rather out of the same morbid curiosity that makes me interested in goatse and tubgirl. Recently I found out why a certain someone has been not talking, and it turned out to be quite anticlimactic.

But, if you're really curious and don't have months to spend, I suggest hiring some thugs to beat a confession out of the non-communicator. I can put you in touch with the Russian mafia, free of charge.

Also, ravenblack sounds *hawt*.

Yes, precisely. For relationship-related things, I have no intentions of pursuing said person further for relationship foo...but I just want to know what the hell happened. Really. (Though I doubt they ever believe me when I tell them I want to know.)

I'll keep the Russian mafia in mind in case of protracted noncommunicativity. [wry grin]

And ravenblack is my favorite arrogant misanthrope and he is, indeed, exceedingly hawt.

I figured he must be hawt, to get away with as much misanthropic arrogance as he does.
