bookoholic However, when they make their point and THEN at the end of that post say “we’ll have to agree to disagree” (or “I’m dropping out of this conversation because I don’t have time to keep arguing about this”)
That’s interesting, I hadn’t thought of “I’m dropping out of this conversation” in the same way. I’ve used that one online just to flag that I won’t be replying - I still always feel it’s slightly rude not to reply to people so I do throw this one in when it’s been heated and I don’t want to think they are waiting for my response or something. I hadn’t thought of it as a ‘last word’ attempt I think because it only described what I would be doing and not what they should do? But I wonder if that distinction is only in my head.
wannabefree You could respond with your own point and “yes, lets agree to disagree”.
I ended up just ignoring it and carrying on my point - it just seemed so unnecessary to need to validate that yes we disagreed!
wannabefree He decided he didn’t want to agree to disagree he wanted us in agreement.
Haha I had never thought of someone saying that. It kind of makes sense! But also doesn’t really leave an out…
