“What are you doing?”
My view-point- What exactly are you asking?? Immediately what I am doing? Today? In the immediate couple of hours? In a week? In my life in general??
Can people ever be specific with questions?
When I used to chat or talk to people a few years ago (yeah! Literally years ago!!) whenever they asked questions I had to make options of answers in my mind or give them specifications to choose one from, to which I could answer, and thus I used to take my time to answer any question.
I am like this from my very childhood and people used to think that I was processing things slowly in my mind or I had communication problem but the real problem was the generality of their way of talking. I just don’t like Small talk like this where you ask the other person what they are doing and even after getting the answer you start a whole trail of N number of irrelevant queries just because you don’t know how to communicate properly and have nothing else to do. You are passing your time because you have nothing to do but you are wasting my time.
And the most annoying people and their questions were those whom I clearly said that I could talk for specifically ___minutes but they kept on going with their stupid conversations just because they thought that I also lacked sense, manners, and boundaries like them.
