Did you ever notice when someone interrupts. . .

Sometimes mid-sentence something distracts me and I lose my train of thought. Often when I do, I can’t remember what I was saying before. It annoys me but I move on to something else.

By contrast, if a person interrupted me to the same effect, I’d get angry, even if what I were saying were no more important.

That is, if while saying the same thing, I were interrupted or distracted, despite the outcome being the same, in one case I’d get angry, the other no problem.

Funny how we do that, isn’t it?
