Was I being immature in this situation? - March 4th 2016, 01:23 PM

I was talking with my friend on the bus and when I was speaking them, a little kid kind of interrupted (as children do), to tell my friend something. My friend then just kind of left while I was talking to respond to the kid. I'm not bothered by what the kid did, as they are kid, but I kind of felt that what my friend did was a little rude. It happened a few more times and I kind of got annoyed as I thought my friend was kind of being rude and when I tried to get their attention while they were speaking to the kid (I know, looks immature), they told me to hang on. I got a little frustrated and kind of snapped at my friend for doing this (which is where I probably overreacted) and they just asked me how old I was. I feel like my friend was kind of rude in what they were doing, but as I said a kid was involved, so am I being immature or overreacting?

In my personal opinion that's more on a matter of perspective. I personally don't think you were being immature, you were just frustrated that your friend kept telling you to hang on whilst they replied to the child. However I would definitely say that regardless of the child being a child, they could certainly have had a little more manners and just excused themselves for interrupting your conversation with your friend.


Life is for living, not for losing.

But still, kids are kids and I was more frustrated how they kept like abandoning the conversation midway while I was speaking

I don't think you were being immature. Regardless of the ages of those involved, it's frustrating when you are trying to have a conversation and are frequently interrupted.

Perhaps if something like this occurs in future, you could just politely say, "I'll carry on talking to you once you've finished your conversation." Make it clear that you want their full attention and are not prepared to compete.


Be kind to yourself.

My opinion seems completely different from everyone else, I actually think you were a bit rash, i mean come on it was a kid asking your friend something.......... why overreact? just go scroll through ur fb newsfeed while your friend is speaking. was the conversation you and your friend having so dire it couldn't be paused for a few minutes?
Not trying to sound condescending but i think you overreacted
