Anybody else have children who set you up to fail?
I have a couple kids who always do. If I talk to them I'm in their face and they want me to back off and leave them alone. If I don't talk to them, I should have asked them if they needed anything. If I come on time they don't want me waiting for them early but if I show up a minute late I'm inconveniencing them. If I ask about how things are going, I'm nosy and overbearing. If I don't ask, then I don't care and am distant and unloving.
Regardless of the situation, any conversation when I'm backed into a corner like that will not end well. My buttons get pushed too many times and even though I know better, the jack in the box pops up and then it's downhill from there.
