Perhaps I Am Too Literal But...
I spend all day with one man at work and then the rest of my day with my husband. Both men seem to think that no matter what they actually say, I am to translate what they "meant". It has become a part of every conversation. For example, my coworker told me where a cable I needed was in another room. He told me it was in a drawer. I went to the location and there was not drawers, only a cabinet with doors and shelves inside. No big deal but I looked for a drawer.
My husband told me he was sorry for something very minor. I told him he did not need to apologize, it was not big deal. He told me he wasn't apologizing! He was just sorry.
This goes on all day and all night. Am I too literal?
