    Yes and if anyone claims they don’t or have never…. I just won’t speak to them anymore.

  2. SKL says:

    Yes. It’s an essential aspect of my passive-aggressive personality. Still haven’t figured out how to make other people notice that I’m not speaking to them.

    Gosh, I’d love to. I often wish that I could. But I just cannot get myself to SHUT UP long enough to do it! Honestly, I tell myself, “I’m just not going to say anything.” I even say it out loud. And then thirty seconds later, I hear myself continuing the argument. pathetic.

    ps… love the picture. That is one ticked-off kitty!!

    What a cute kitty cat! And yes, I think I did, but more because I am blocked then and cannot say what is on my (angry) mind. I know people who made it an art, but I hate it when people do that to me.

    yes all the time…sometimes I just even tell Jason I don’t feel like talking to you right now! lol

  7. Sue says:

    Yup, but mine never seems to last very long!

  8. Jason says:

    I very seldom give the silent treatment, I prefer to tell someone what is on my mind. The only time I hold back is when I am processing my thoughts, but I will always come back once I figure out what I want to say. As to what was said in another one of these comments, sometimes she has little to no reason for giving me the silent treatment, which is where my son has learned it from. 🙂

    I may use a cooling-off period, but I NEVER go without speaking to a friend longer than a day or two. Unfortunately, some of my friends are not so mature…I don’t mean to sound sexist, but this seems to me to be mostly a female way of handling anger. One thing I admire about men is their ability to get mad, explode, and then get over it quickly. MUCH less excruciating than the ST.
