I definitely avoid people depending on my mood. But don't ever take me forgetting to visit your blog as that. You like my dog and that makes you inherently awesome.

FuriousBall - Yogi is awesome! I think that's a very good point. Sometimes we avoid people just because we do.


I definitely avoid certain people. But sometimes I wish I didn't. I wish I had the gumption to tell them what I think of them. Why should they get to go around living their life normally, feeling like all is fine, but I have to walk down a different aisle or feel that poison boiling feeling of seeing someone I loathe. Bah!

I have done my share of avoidance, but dislike the feeling of guilt that accompanies it even when I am not the one who did something wrong.

Now I try to man up and face them down in the hope that they will remember What They Did and be embarrassed. It seems that I have a longer memory for injuries than those who did the injuring, however.

There are a few people I have avoided in life: the tax guy, my HR department, the Mexican restaurant we don't eat at anymore near the office, that one nurse who couldn't take my blood and moved the needle like a joystick...

Christy - Yes. I'm with you! Then I live in this yucky place and they are all fine. When I've tried to confront? I end up looking like the ass.

Heart in SF - It's a funny thing. If it was me? I'd want to know. I can be a real jerk and I'd like to clear up a hurt feeling or two. I guess some people are oblivious.

Michael C. - Now that's a good plan. Of course, I have help with that stuff - accountant for the tax guy, I am my own HR department, I will also avoid the Mexican restaurant, and that nurse is history!


I don't like confrontations, so I avoid quite a bit. Recently a co-worker sent me a kind of racy e-mail and I'm dreading the day that I come face to face with him. He apologized for the e-mail but still...akward.


It largely depends on how invested I am in the relationship. There are times I choose to avoid as a method of showing disinterest. Somehow it seems less harsh than telling someone outright that I have no interest in getting to know them.

If someone is a hurtful, mean or destructive person, I avoid them... because they usually bring misery into everyone around them.

Meemo - Ew. Hasn't he seen your gorgeous hunky husband??? Jeez.

Chani - Wise thoughts. I think it's hard to detach enough from the situation or people to identify what to do in every situation.
