And yes, I feel better for having vented about that. And again, no offense to those of you who live in NYC; different strokes and all, my point is just that it's well-documented that I never want to be there again, especially during summer, so the whole refusal to acknowledge that and listen to me when I repeatedly said that wouldn't happen and the insistence upon believing that I wanted something I repeatedly said I did not want - well. Brings me back to my childhood, that does.
I do not understand why I keep expecting rational behavior. Nine times out of ten in interpersonal interactions, that is what bites me in the ass: expecting logic and rationality. Why have I proven unable to adjust to lack of rationality? I do not know. I don't even know how I'd go about doing so.
