Strange Interlude

Have you ever noticed someone behaving strangely? Either they’re brusque when you speak to them or they don’t want to speak to you at all. Chances are they're having problems at home or work that have nothing to do with you. Anecdotally it’s been surmised that only 1/10th of the cold shoulders a human being receives in their lifetime have to do with something they have done to deserve being snubbed. The only reason why 9/10s of people take the blame is that the notion of their  eliciting only indifference is even more painful. In fact, modern sociopathy has even coined a term for these types of events: "pre-snuptual bliss." So the next time your cell doesn't vibrate in your pocket, don't assume you're responsible. The person you're worrying about probably doesn't care.
