OTT PROMPT

THOUGHTS YOU HAVE WHEN SOMEONE INTERRUPTS YOUR READING

Under this prompt you can talk about your thoughts when your reading is interrupted in school, at work, at home or somewhere else or even just in general.

People seem to be plotting against me and keep popping up with something or the other whenever and wherever I’m reading. So let’s have a look at my murderous tendencies thoughts when this happens.

Thoughts I Have When Someone Interrupts My Reading

  • W‌hat do you want, puny human?
  • ‌You say one more word and you’ll find a dagger in your throat
  • ‌Why are people so interfering????
  • ‌Oh my gosh I’m okay, it’s totally normal to cry while reading just let me get back to my book!!!
  • ‌*makes hissing noises when someone tries to take away my book*
  • ‌Mom! Can’t I do that chore later? Now of all times? Ughhhh
  • ‌I HAVE HEADPHONES ON WHICH CLEARLY MEANS I DO NOT WANT TO BE DISTURB
  • ‌You think I’m politely listening to you but I’m actually planning your murder in my head 🙂
  • ‌DO YOU KNOW WHAT KIND OF EMOTIONAL TRAUMA I’M GOING THROUGH?!?!
  • ‌What, you said something? Na-uh, can’t hear anything, too busy reading
  • ‌Hello 911 this is a real emergency, I am about to kill this person who’s interrupting my reading
  • ‌I WAS HALFWAY THROUGH THE CLIMAX SCENE, DO NOT DARE BREAK MY FLOW
  • ‌*holds up a sign saying BEWARE OF THE READER, DO NOT DISTURB*
  • ‌*holds up book when they ask what I’m reading*
  • *‌holds up back cover when they ask what it’s about*
  • *‌screams in distress*
  • ‌What is this alien form of life asking for my attention
  • ‌I would throw this book at you if I didn’t desperately want to read the end
  • *‌daydreaming about the characters and completely zoning out*
  • ‌What do you mean I’ve been glued to this the whole day?
  • And how is that a bad thing again??
  • ‌LA LA LA LA LA, I CAN’T HEAR YOU
  • ‌No I can’t just pause an audio-book, I’ll loose track of what was being said!
  • ‌That’s it. I’m booking a one-way ticket to Alaska for two. Oh no, not you and me, just me and a gigantic pile of books 🙂

Honestly, it’s a miracle that I manage to reign myself and let the people who interrupt me survive. What about you? I’m so excited to see what your thoughts are on this topic! Link your posts back to this one and I’ll check them all out.

    Yes people always feel the need to interrupt you when you are reading– I remember one time I was reading and my grandma said ‘seeing as you are doing nothing do you want to help me…’ and I was like I am reading, how am I not doing anything??? 😂😂 the struggles!!
    But yes I would certainly want to throw my book at people when they disturb me!!
    Great post!! 💛

    This is so incredibly relatable. I’m genuinely not sure how my brother is still alive with how much he interrupts me while I’m reading.

    LOL I usually end up ignoring the person if I don’t care about them while thinking about most of these thoughts and possibly plotting against them in my sleep. I think my mother gets tired of me sometimes since she talks a lot and repeats and uh… I’m usually zoned out if I’m reading.

      Oh yeah my family keeps complaining that I literally go deaf while reading 😂 Also sometimes I take advantage of that and pretend that I can’t hear them 😜

    Another hilarious post! I think I have resorted to reading in the bed and forgo sleep instead of fighting the other worldly distractions.

    Oh my God! Can this BE any more relatable???? I have the almost exact thoughts though I don’t usually get interrupted in home (and all the time in hostel) My mom and dad being bookworms helps me in this cause
