Subject:Amusing comment by a coworker
Time:12:30 am
I was sitting around the office this evening drinking wine with a few coworkers. A topical, politically-charged subject came up, and one of my coworkers said a few things that were emotional and not entirely fact-based.

I responded by calmly pointing out the factual errors in his initial assertion, countered with a logical yet extreme extension to his position, then asked him a question that was meant to illustrate one way that he was thinking irrationally.

He sat there confused for a few seconds, until another coworker spoke up. "It's hard to argue with Patti. She's too logical and reasonable."

Hrmm. I'm not sure I agree with her assessment, but it amused me to hear her say that.

I really don't understand the unreasonable reactions people have on this issue. Totally baffles me.


But I feel the same way about arguing with Noah. Our 'discussions' often end with me mock-yelling at him, "There is to be no reality in this relationship!!" I'm not willing to tell him that he wins, but I'll signal that the conversation can end. ;)
