Well you said some things before me so that means we are thinking similary here. Yes I am thinking about sitation like this.
For example someone says to "My grandfather died last night". Ok you
grandfather died I am sorry but I am wrong person if you want to have a cry fest in two.
But this does not mean that I am talking only about this. This can be about positive stuff as well. Since impressing me is pretty much mission impossible.
So I am one of those people that are standing in the background and roll eyes. I have stoped to celebrate my birthdays exactly because I did not get anything form them. I haven't celebrated my bithday for last 14 years and to be honest I am not bothered by this.
When I was a kid I needed to read novels and poetry but I found it to be a quite a waste of time. Since iI could not relate to anything and I have rolled my eyes on pretty much everything that is "for the kids"
I remember that at the first grade I made a lot of other kids cry by claiming that the entire Christmas-Santa-Presents thing is nothing but a phantasy/fraud.
I am sorry but I am a Grinch.
