Complicated TTQ Rants

Do you ever get more info than you need and get annoyed? Honey's Explorer didn't want to start, so when I call him on my way out for the day to say good morning. He said, I have been waiting all morning for you to call and say you are awake. I was already in the car and halfway to my first place, and he starts telling me about his battery and what is was doing and what he had to do to get to work. I said okay, but what do you want me to do? And off he went about how bad his battery is and if we took it to this one place they will check the old one and replace it, yadda yadda. I said fine, but what do I need to do? Well we could go together and have it done then go the gym, or we could do this or we could do this, and I could do that. I said "So WHAT is it exactly that you need me to do? I've already left the house". Oh!, he says, "so I can't pick up the right debit card 'cause it's with you?" And then goes on about the battery AGAIN. Fuck.
Finally I say:
I'll tell you what I'll do, I'll turn around go back home and leave the card on your desk, if you think your car will start to take it to the auto repair place, go there after work and get what you need for the truck. Simple eh? "Oh by the way," he says "The Explorer doesn't have any gas in it. Maybe that's reason it didn't want to start". Oh for the love of... Do I need to meet you at work? No? Good. Call me if you need me. End of story. Except maybe he needed more caffine or maybe a xanax...something..anything..

Happens all the time. I usually counter with, "That was basically a yes or no question."

I don't know why he puts up with me. :)
