Do you have a family member who is always telling people what you are up to - encouraging people to come along or to try whatever you are trying???
I prefer to keep my whereabouts/activities on the DL.
Everyone does not always need to know what we are doing or where we are going. That kind of thing drives me nuts as when I'm away I prefer not to feel like I have to entertain people or be responsible for their happiness.
A few weeks ago I got a call asking what hotel we would be staying at on an upcoming trip. I wondered how this person knew about it - until it was mentioned that Mr. Over-Accommodating said something. When I'm all grungy and grumpy at the breakfast bar, I prefer not to be noticed - grrrrrrrrrrr
Well, then there was the awkwardness that was yesterday. Mr. O-A encouraged someone else to go to an event we were going to; He no sooner did this than the individual turned to him and asked if he could sleep on the floor in our hotel room the nights we would be there. Instead of saying there would not be much room - usually we are stepping over crap between a boatload of juggling props and our luggage filling every available floor space - instead of saying that- he turns to me and asks me in front of this individual what I thought about it - could the guy stay on the floor in our room? I did the next best thing - turned to Mr. O-A and said it was up to him. It was fun watching him stumble over his words...
And maybe a lesson has been learned. Nah, I doubt it...
Do you have a Mr. Over-Accommodating in your family too???
**all parties involved in this post are really sweet people - it's just the over-yapping that is leading to my frustrations!!!**
