Talking To Yourself: Is It Just Us, Or Is It Normal?
So sometimes here at the station I've noticed that from time to time, something happens to us. It happened to Carl the Old Engineer, it happens with Mike the New Engineer. It happened to our old Business Manager, it's happening now to Teresa our new Business Manager... and yes, it's happening to me.
We talk to ourselves.
Out loud. At work.
I don't know why that is, but it's a strange habit several of us have picked up here. I was talking about it with a friend of mine the other day and she told me about her mom. Her mom is a successful businesswoman who always has a million things going on. And because she does so much, she's developed some pretty weird habits. They'll be out shopping or something, and she'll just start talking to herself. It's like she's making mental notes . . . OUT LOUD. She said it's to keep everything straight in her head, but she sounds like a crazy person.
But it can't be THAT weird, because I do it at home, too. Well, I talk to myself if I'm alone sometimes. I don't really talk to myself if Husbando's around, I guess. Unless you count talking to the cats as talking to myself. I guess that would be the same as talking to myself.
Surely this isn't just a strange "radio people" thing, right? Do you talk to yourself at work, or when you're at home, or ever?
