    I'm just gonna post this here, because I guess it's the closest thing we have to a brain problems thread at the moment.

    Yesterday, I noticed that some meat one of my roomies left out ot thaw was basically thawed, and was leaking meat juice out of the plastic bag it was in.

    So I asked Joseph (One of said roomies) what should be done with it.

    He answers "Well, one of two things..

    A: You could- "

    And at that point I stopped hearing anything he was saying, in lieu of thinking "Is this guy really categorizing his two fucking options on what to do with the meat?"

    Not just categorizing, but labeling them by letters as he lists them off, alphabetically. All two of them.

    I'm sorry for rambling about this, but I could not keep that to myself.

    Well there are three options actually.

    1, throw it out.

    2, put it in the fridge.

    3, go watch some tv and ignore it.

    My thing is just... why not just list them off immediately?

    It's not like he was listing off a series of points. I can understand doing something like this if you have a proper list of things to talk about. But it was just two things. Just say those two things.

    Telling me that you have two things and then labeling them as you list them off just seems really superfluous.

    It may seem a bit superfluous, more of a verbal flourish than anything, but the dude was still just answering the question you asked him. Instead of thinking like he's exacerbating time, consider the fact that all he did was literally add a couple of letters to what he would've said otherwise. I mean we consider things as binary most of the time anyway: Good or bad, yes or no, right or wrong, pro and con, best case scenario or worst case scenario, etc.

    It just strikes me as odd and kinda rude to lock immediately onto that and ignore the advice you're being given that you asked for.

    I had always considered listing alternatives with titles (either letters or numbers) as an inherently condescending way to answer a question. Kind of like a teacher speaking to a student, or how you'd talk to coworkers.
    It's not something which would necessarily piss me off unless I were already in a mood, but it comes off as way too formal for a friendship

    Yeah I list things by abc/123 all the time in general conversation (moreso at work) and I know plenty of other people who do it too.

    Because it's human nature to add little bits and pieces onto statements?

    I mean look at what you said, you could easily cut a lot of fat out that too.

    I mostly do it because if my response is longer than a couple of words, it's easier for the other person to just consider and maybe respond with "a" or "b".

    I mean I list 2-option lists for clients all the time but I usually do it by gesturing my right hand versus my left hand

    makes it easier to force a direct comparison if y- ok you know what no I'm not actually going to engage with this as a serious thing to discuss

    It's been used erroneously in a lot of different situations, the bullet-point-style of listing options; for myself, I use it in the most light hearted manner possible and (purposefully) incorrect.

    A. When I'm playing the gag straight

    2. I make sure to mix numbers and letters

    D. Skipping around in sequence facilitates the humor

    I know I've gotten old because

    I don't recover as quickly from physical injury
    I wake with aches in my joints
    My skin is flipping the fuck out and reacting to every damned thing and there is also SOME rash SOMEWHERE that is PISSING ME OFF
    I have become far less tolerable of piss-poor excuses for inaction
    I frequently think to myself "man, those kids wearing those school uniforms are representing their school, they should know better than to act like assholes"
    My eyesight is shithouse
    I care far, far less what everyone thinks of me as a person*
    I get increasingly more hormonal with every subsequent month, to the extent that diaper commercials make me cry if it's the wrong week of the month
    I cannot be arsed to engage in every argument or discussion that comes up about a topic I'm interested in
    I have a dramatically reduced capacity to spend time with people I dislike or who ruin my mood
    I am more forgetful and use calendars and lists to organise myself; if it's not in my diary, it's not happening
    I have reduced patience for people who actively block their ability to grow as individuals
    I care about others but find others worrying about me to be a preposterous waste of their time
    I spent the last 3 minutes figuring out how to include the phrase "a preposterous waste of their time" into this list

    *does not apply to what everyone thinks of my looks, which still matters to me, which is stupid

    EDIT: actually half that list could just be a byproduct of having a job that I actually like doing, as opposed to one where I while away the time on the forums

    I've developed a real, what's the word

    crippling, "i should probably see a doctor about this" phobia around death

    like, it started a few months ago, where i would start having huge panic attacks about dying--like what it feels like to be dying, or to be dead, and i'll just end up in tears

    and then, sometimes, i'll spend hours just obsessing over it, just covering every possibility of what happens when i die--or, when doing something mundane, i'll get irrationally angry and think "now i'm x minutes closer to death and there's nothing i can do about it"

    i think it's an outgrowth of the panic attacks i used to have a few years ago right before i fell asleep, where i'd become convinced the thoughts i was thinking were the last ones i'd ever experience, and i was 100% certain i would die in my sleep? they seem related.

    and the thing is, i'm barely 26, i'm in great health (my last check-up ended with the words "whatever you're doing, keep doing it"), and i even mostly gave up caffeine and alcohol lately. but here i am, just a wreck over this, and i don't know why.

    basically fun times.
