An Open Letter to Anyone Else Considering Giving me the 'Silent Treatment'

It has come to my attention that I am now being given the 'silent treatment' by not one but two people simultaneously ("and at the same time" - that's one of VC's RenFest bits ;-)

So if anyone else is considering hopping on the bandwagon, it's a little late at this stage of the game.

I've been punished with the silent treatment for well over 30 years. I'm used to being ignored. If you think you can break me, bwwwwwwwaaaahhhhaaaaaa.....you've got another thing coming. I can give as good as I get. I've learned well.

As you can see, my interpersonal relationships are going along swimmingly. Hope yours are better.

Be good to the Earth, if not each other, on this Earth Day!

I wish a few people would give me the silent treatment. It would make my life so much easier...:)

Can I just tell you that I would be completely thrilled if a few family members would honor me with the silent treatment!

In your case, you may not be that happy about it. If so, then I give you big, big (((hugs)))

Rebecca Jo said...

Yep, sometimes I thoroughly enjoy a silent treatment... & people think that's punishment? ha!

Joy said...

What the heck, I am behind in my reading...

Who on earth would want to give YOU the silent treatment!

Michelle Pixie said...

Who would want to do that to you?!? That is so childish!!! (though I admit I wish a few of my co-workers would do it to me. I am sick of having to talk to them!). I think you would be so mcuh fun to talk to. So, their loss!!!

Salt said...

This is me giving you the silent treatment.

Is it working? Huh????

Just kidding. This is actually me sending you a giant e-hug.

I will spend today as usual- on Earth... Where is that damn Mother ship?

Jenn@ You know... that blog? said...

The good thing about the silent treatment is that they aren't spewing drivel in your direction. You should probably thank them at some point for the respite! ;)

So much can be said whilst saying nothing. Things like; "Yes, I'm a silly, childish individual, and I really DO think passive-aggressive behavior is acceptable!"

Ah, silence. It's golden.

Have an awesome day :)

Silent treatment? Pelt 'em with Cheese Ballz.

NIKOL said...

I've tried to give people the silent treatment in the past. My desire to yell usually wins out in the end.

Just kidding! There are a couple I know that I wish would give me the silent treatment. NO BLOGGERS! But in my extended family...

Mommyof2girlz said...

Okay then..I think the silent treatment is better than spreading gossip though. Either way what are we still in high school? I mean really. Whatever, I lover you..kisses :)

Lucy said...

Silent treatment, now that is something I totally don't understand, I bet you would never believe that about me, I'm sure you would think that I am soooo good at giving the Silent treatment (lol)
Let's just say I have many, many family members who would gladly wish I exercised such a treatment (lol)

Laura said...

Silent treatment? Really?
Maybe you are lucky though depending on who they are and if they are people who give other adults silent treatment I would say - yes. Lucky. :)

i'm sorry your getting the silent trtmnt...

actually if someone is mad at me and giving me silence, but i don't think i did anything wrong.. then i think their silent trtmnt is just sorta funny, secretly i'm laughing at them in my head and telling myself "haha, you don't hafta talk to them... Mmmm, goooold!!"

Kristin said...

Boo to the silent treatment. That's weak.

Slamdunk said...

Sounds like you have 'em out flanked on this strategy. In contrast, I could use more silence in my life.

Alicia said...

really?? that sucks lady! but i have a feeling that you're going to hold your own against them!! be strong!!

Jayne said...

The silent treatment only works if 'the victim' is there to be roundly ignored and continues to make efforts at pleasant communication (but I suspect you already know this after 30 years). Carry on your own sweet way, getting on with things that make you happy - they'll come around. Eventually.

We're here for you Carma. Talk to us. x

Mocha Dad said...

I'm giving the silent treatment so disregard this comment.

Janna Bee said...

Hmmm... I wish my kids would give me the silent treatment, at least for an hour. Ba dum dum. Also, my puppy ignoring me would be a welcome break.

Sorry somebod(ies) are giving you the silent treatment, unless you are actually enjoying it. How are you doing? Thinking about you.
