    This is why I usually work from notes, these days.

    Somebody else is annoying Caulfield? What a switcheroo.

    Caulfield is the “Galloping Gourmet’s” butter!

    Just about the time you think that maybe you have everything all figured out, someone comes along (or something happens) …

    Helps to check if it’s important or just blather.

    Caulfield hit Frazz just right. Gotta empathize with him.

    It was a perfectly reasonable response

    I am mostly like Frazz in this because questions like Cauflield’s tend to derail my train of thought and asking a question like Frazz’s tends to put the train back on the tacks, even if it derails the other person’s train. Though I have learned to ask them silently in my head most often just for the sake of other people’s sanity

    Caulfield FINALLY nails it after all these years in panel 3!

    LOL. That conversation occurs between my spouse and I (or is it ‘me’) at least once a day.

    Caufield, it’s just karma, coming home to roost.

    And stories! When you can’t get through a story because someone keeps asking of irrelevant details!

    “What” is quantity-neutral. If I ask a kid, “what did you do during summer vacation?”, I don’t expect the kid to describe a single activity.

    If you have some thing to say, don’t make it a question. It just invites people to interrupt you and to ask their questions. Most of which you really don’t want to hear and you let them start talking about whatever they want before you even get to your point.

    Would this be derailing a thought, or derailing thoughtlessness? Asking for a fiend.

    @flashbulb239 is correct. Imagine if I were to say, “You know what I want for dinner? A steak.” I’m certain my wife would think it odd that I might serve it with no baked potato and asparagus alongside (and nothing at all for her).

    whether or not it is a “perfectly good thought” then becomes a matter of opinion

    When people start with “What I don’t understand …” there usually is some presumption of understanding that is hiding a criticism.

    Frazz · 16 hrs · And here I am, in the business of trying to sneak attention to detail into people’s heads by disguising it as noise. There must be an auditory equivalent of the laws of thermodynamics. Nothing is really lost and nothing is really gained. It’s all just constantly rearranged.
