    It Makes Me So Angry

    I hate it when people twist my words. I hate it when people do it on purpose to make me look and feel bad in front of others. I hate it when people do it because they just didn't understand what I said, because often times they will get quite adamant about what they think I said...

    Twisted Words

    I sure hate it when I say something and people twist and change words so that what I had said to begin with has a totally different meaning leaving me frustrated and  confused.

    Haha, I really do.. and it reminds me of one of

    my favorite quotes which is one from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia; "Don't paraphrase me, I choose my words very deliberately."

    You Learn To Deal With It

    I'm now living with my father after a decade or more and have found he's the king at twisting words and only strictly believes what he thinks. It's nothing horrible just extremely-overbearingly irritating when it's my dad of whom I want to get to know now, now that our lives...

    It really drives me crazy

    when I say something nice to someone and they twist my words and make it look like a dig to them. Read what I wrote and understand it. Don't twist my words to make me look like I'm taking a cheap shot at you.

    I lived the first half of my freshman year with

    this family; and the mom was purely psychotic. Every. Word. I. Said. Was twisted into some sort of 'attack', lie, or high level is disrespect. The only way to get 'your way' and survive in that home with hopes of a little of your own happiness was to lie, cheat, and stab the one...

    This Is Not The Twister® That I Want To Play!

    I could say the most neutral of things to someone and have them twist my words.  For example: Me: "It's sunny today. [an observation]"  Them: "What's wrong with that?  Would you rather have it cold and rainy outside?"  (Huh?  What?  Who...

    If something didn't come out of my mouth,

    don't tell me it did. Don't twist things to make me look like a bad person. I always clarify what I say, so there should be no confusion.

    I Didn't Mean It THAT Way.

    Obviously you sound different to others than how you think you sound. I consider my tone to be very neutral and relaxed but it's so frustrating that whenever I freaking speak, everybody and their grandmothers think that I'm being sarcastic. Lady, I just asked you for the time...

    I had a girlfriend in high school,

    through my whole senior year, who was a chronic word twister. I'd say something, "Oh so what you're saying is..." and then I'd say no, and change what I said, and then that would be twisted... Please make it stop, I need some Tylenol now.

    There's Something Very Weak About It

    I really do.  I try to communicate effectively but then sometimes persons in my real life exasperate me with the way they twist my words to meet their agenda.  Do others have this problem?

    and make them sound much worse than they are! I am uncomfortable around gay men. That doesn't mean I hate gay men! That's just an example. It's not true
