15. That feeling of dread that washes over you when the phone rings and you're not mentally prepared to chat.
This is why I keep my phone on silent, and without vibrate. If I must talk to somebody on the phone, I'd rather call them.

I do the same thing, I check it once or twice a day for messages and missed calls.

Oh yeah. I turn that thing off as much as possible. I miss a lot of stuff cause it may be days until I turn it back on though.

I was about to say, I think I submit a fair share of Fark headlines but I never expect Drew to pay me for it, I don't care if he gets money off it, good for him, right? Who cares if someone profits online? Why does this so dearly angrily offend a portion of the internet so passionately?

It's like they turn red with fury if io9 or buzzfeed is linked, for some reason. Something about the formatting I guess. Or maybe it's because it's a profit deal.

Yet wow they want that Moran guy and the kitten killing poster copyrighted and always footnoted with proper references.

I don't know why this infuriates me so much. It's biatchy resting face, not resting biatch face. Resting biatch face makes no sense, grammatically or otherwise. It's supposed to be a resting face that is biatchy! C'mon.

Yeah, but "Quiet Girl Problems" doesn't come nearly as close to "White People Problems" as "Quiet People Problems", though mine does push at the rhyme some.

Now go away and leave me alone with my trying to be funny.  I've already used up enough socialization energy for today and I still have to get to work.

How about these:

Everyone who works for you assumes that you are a tyrant because you don't smile even though you bend over backwards to help them out.

You know every single scratch ticket that is displayed on the counter at the gas station even though you never buy them. You just stare at them rather than look the cashier in the eye.

Too bad I can't read this at work, I bet more than half of these apply to me.

I love talking to strangers, though, especially making them laugh. I just want to get the hell away from them afterwards ... And I'm capable of making eye contact like a normal human.

But, yeah, small talk is usually torture.

It has to be well-placed and timed.  Look away to list the details and look in to drive home the point.  Quiet people are good actors and can actually make more interesting conversation since they put real effort into it.

I understand why it's hard for some people to make eye contact during conversations so I'm not judging here.  But it is nice to have eye contact.  It can be another part of how we see what someone is feeling.  Like how you can tell by the tone of their voice or their body language, you can also see in their eyes what their emotions are.  Eye's are very expressive.  And sometimes it's just that the other person is a pretty girl with pretty eyes and it's nice to have that eye contact.

Eye's are the window to the soul and all that.  But if someone doesn't make eye contact with me I certainly don't take offence.  It's no big deal.

I've always heard the saying that you can't trust anyone who can't look in your eyes. However, ever since I was a kid in grade school, I found the exact opposite to be true. (Detecting Lies in the Face and Eyes, Number 4)

I've dealt with those issues my entire life.  It can be a real problem when you date people who just don't understand that alone time is necessary for my sanity.

Same with me, but I force myself to look strangers in the eye at times, especially at work.  I have to force small talk, too.  Sadly, appearances matter.

If you can talk to a crowd and people are shocked over your well-placed intensity, then you will be a very successful minister.  People like that on Sunday mornings.  Plus there's the whole thing about people coming to talk to you out of the blue, and they want advice so they do almost all of the talking.

Dividing any sliding scale into two distinct groups is rarely good. It gets compounded by the way the average person takes psychological facts they hear in the rumor mill as gospel.

Ha! I like those points. I'll mention that to my minister. And yeah, the best thing about that is, the people already know the answer, it's just a matter of gaining the confidence to accept it and act on it.

On the subject of alone time:  My wife understand that when I come home from work I'm going into my office for an hour minimum. I might be playing games, reading personal e-mail or just listening to music.  As a manager I deal with people all day every day.  By the time I'm done my day I've probably been dealing with people for 11 hours and I just need to decompress.  It took her a while to understand this though.
