If you are going to ask someone how they are, or in my case, I was asked how my mum was, then do make sure you stay and listen to their answer.
I mentioned this on another blog about where I was asked recently by one particular person at work, how my mum was. But when I started to say, I was left talking to myself. I may as well have just faced the wall and had a chat with that!
It’s not the first time this same person has done this, along with another noticable trait she likes to do.
Well no more. My walls are up with this person.
So if you ever in a situation you know someone is in difficulty and you just happen to ask how they are, or how a family member is, please, stay and listen to them. What’s the point asking, if you are just not going to listen and talk to the next person that comes in the room.
The person you leave and did not finish the conversation with, could be really struggling. Or by not listening and walking away, makes you look uncaring as well as bloody rude.
