    Have you ever had somebody accuse you of having control issues because you don't do what they want, the way they want, and when they want it? It's screwy.

    Yeah, 'cause asking "what are we doing?" is an extremely controlling thing to do.

    No... well, people usually accuse me of having control issues because I like things done when and how I want it. Or else!!!

    Is there something wrong with that??!! :biggrin1:

    Dingdingdingdingding! We have a winner!

    I've expelled a couple of those types from my life lately, and purged their numbers from my contact list. One of them is still insisting that something bad will happen to me if I don't call them. {insert eyeroll icon here} I have this individual on ignore, but when I see a reply to a thread I started by somebody I'm ignoring, I sometimes read them. These admonitions are beginning to have a stalkerly quality to them.

    I guess it's my control issues that make me believe I have the right to deny anyone access to me.

    The craziest controll freak I've seen recently is a show called "Flipping Out". It's about a gay guy with a hairpeice and a lip enhancement. He flips properties in Cali.

    He made one of his employees apologize to his cat (the cat bit the employee when he took the cat to acupuncture)

    Then later on he wanted a formal written letter of apology from the employee.

    It's sad how some people in power want to demean others and it's sad to see those who take it.

    As a caregiver for an elderly person, I would never say "mmmmm... Depends."

    Oy, I just got out of a relationship like that. Best yet, I was also controlling because he felt like he could never go out with his friends, even though I encouraged it. Ridiculous.

    I'm with you Mem, I end toxic friendships. I do discuss the issue with them first and give them a chance, but if that doesn't work, they are out of my life. I tend to take longer to end it in a relationship, but I do and they end up knowing why.
