Don’t you just hate it when someone starts talking to you but that tone of voice just cuts right through you because they are talking to you as if you are a child. Rather than treating you like a competent, well rounded adult just the tone in their voice makes it quite clear to you that they don’t see you as that. They think they are so much better than you are. More important. Smarter. Richer. Healthier. Luckier. None of this needs to be actually verbally expressed though because just the tone of voice in which they ask you how your day is going says it all.
It gets tiresome being spoken to as if you are a child, even if you happen to be one.” ― Patrick Rothfus
