My wife always tells me I'm a bad listener. It's the single thing about me she'd change the most if she could. It's due to a combination of things - my failing hearing, my ADD which freakishly combines with my ability to single-mindedly focus on one thing to the exclusion of everything else ("mental blinkers"), plus my complete lack of interest in small talk and idle chit chat. So I feel for her, I really do. I wish i could be a better listener, but at my age, change comes hard. And, you know, when it comes to a spouse from another country, Caveat Emptor.
But I don't think I've ever listened as badly as JD's girlfriend did here. Outstanding. (via my buddy Tad's twitter)
