How could you be so insensitive? How could you be so callous? How could you be so airheaded?
What am I blathering on about for those of you who read this ask? My dear husband took it upon himself last night while I was reading HP and OotP to tell me who dies.
I was reading the book. I showed him I had about 1/3 to 1/4 left to go. He asks me if its good and I'm like - YES. So he says to me, Well, I know ****** dies.
Know what he says to me? He says, I thought X dies at the beginning! I'm sorry!
Anyone who is anyone knows that she did NOT put the death of X at the beginning of the book.
Furthermore, my neighbor who was disappointed in the book - blathered on to dear hubby telling him how disappointed she was in it because NOTHING HAPPENS UNTIL THE END.
What part of that did he miss? Is it the hair color? Is it the fact that the neighbor rattles on so that even I tend to ignore most of what she tells me? Because she IS rather boring to listen to.
I know she told him that nothing happened until the end of the book because she told ME she told him that and then she repeatedly told me how nothing happens until the end of the book and how she did not like the book for that reason.
I have so enjoyed this book. I was so looking forward to the surprise at the end - who dies? When does the other stuff take place? What is going to happen?
Well, now the book, that I have enjoyed emensely, has been ruined for me.
Of course I don't know HOW X dies, but the fact that it is X that dies - I didn't want to know that until I read it.
I cannot begin to tell you how pissed off I am.
Did I do that to you when you were reading Regina's Song and you told me you had 51 pages left and that you didn't want to know how it ended because you didn't want the book ruined for you?
No. Instead I asked where you were at in the book so that I knew what it was safe to talk to you about.
How can you be so calous? So uncaring?
Why could you say, have you gotten to the part where the major charachter dies yet?
Then I could have said no and you would not have ruined a book for me.
I'm so distressed. I cried myself to sleep last night. I'm sick to my stomach today. I'm heartsick.
Is a book really that important?
Its not that the book is important - I think it is because I happen to enjoy these books and enjoy discovering what is happening next without interference of someone telling me about what the charachter is going to do or say - its more the principal of the matter.
Its that he didn't want to know how HIS book ended (because I read it before him obviously), its that he was careless of my feelings and instead of erring on the side of caution, he threw caution to the wind and told me how mine ends.
Not really how it ends per se, but which charchater dies.
Here I'm thinking its Sn, M or D - and even hoping its F and that darn cat - or the newest toad charachter - but NOOOOOOO - its ruined for me.
I just want to beat you seriously about the head with something to knock some sense into you.
I will eventually let this go, but in the meantime, be expecting some frigid weather.
Yes, you heard me correctly, I'm that pissed off. I'm that hurt.
HOW DARE YOU!!!!
And, "I didn't know" or "I thought it happened at the beginning" is not an acceptable excuse either. Because I was told that you were told that nothing happened until the end. Which means that you did not listen. Oh, you heard what you wanted to - enough to ruin the book for me - but you DIDN'T hear the most important part - NOTHING HAPPENS UNTIL THE END - that part that would have stopped you from ruining it.
I am so terribly hurt. I don't even know where to begin to express the pain in my chest that you would be so insensitive, so callous, so uncaring, so !@#@#$!#$!@#$!@#$!@#$.
