With the Narc I am trying to be rid of, he feels that his world should be known by everyone. So it wouldn't occur to him to change what he says for anyone else's benefit...us peons are expected to change for him.
I no longer ask or show interest in his lingo...he is techy and his hobby is to hear himself talk on and on and on and on...so I pretend I am at church and it's the sermon and I find songs in the phrases or play other mind games with myself until he's gone again.
Then, I google!
There was a time when I could listen to that voice all day long and now I just want it gone.
You know, and I hope I'm not repeating, I think nearly Exh and your Narc, Fly SD, also may just be so into their own universe they don't think about people outside of it. Of course it may also be to make you mad, which I used to think about nearly ExH, but I think nowadays that it would take effort on his part to think of me and it would take away from thinking of his own selfish a..Ashland 13
