People Who Talk to Their Dogs
I've witnessed it on the street, and it's deeply disturbing.
Yeah, I do talk to myself sometimes, but at least that's a person I'm talking to!
But holding a conversation with a pet? It's rather one-sided, and besides, it tends to scream out your loneliness to the masses in a blaringly poignant way.
Just the other day, I saw a man asking his dog, "Do you want to go back home now?"
He seemed so sincere about it, I actually waited a few seconds to see if the dog answered.
And he didn't!
This conversation went absolutely nowhere!
I'll stick to asking guys if they want to go home now.
Men are dogs anyway.
