So here I am, venting yet again.

I cannot understand how some people who have a good command of English sometimes do not understand what I am saying.

For far too many times already, I have repeatedly made myself clear (apparently not clear enough to him) that there is nothing going on between me and a particular close friend of mine. What he fails to grasp, is the meaning of the word 'nothing'. I mean, seriously, what does the word 'nothing' mean to you?

According to

[nuhth-ing] Show IPA
noun thing; not anything; naught: to say nothing. part, share, or trace (usually followed by of ): The house showed nothing of its former magnificence.
3.something that is nonexistent.
4.nonexistence; nothingness: The sound faded to nothing.
5.something or someone of no importance or significance: Money is nothing when you're without health.

So, I'm particularly drawn to meaning number 3. Nothing means, it is nonexistent!!! I mean, come on la. Can you stop making this such a big issue and take a break?

You want us to tell you things that are going on in our lives, but you cast aside the IMPORTANT things we tell you, and latch on to the INSIGNIFICANT.

This is not the first time and circumstance something like this has happened. It's just too many times to count, and I am tired of always having to tiptoe around you, and how you will complain to others, but never to the actual recipient itself. Are you hoping that other parties will tell the intended person? If that is the case, then doesn't it make you look like a coward that you need other people to be the messenger? AND when the person in question CONFRONTS you about it, you act dumb, and pretend that it wasn't you that mentioned it.

Bah. Why am I even bothering? -.-"
