I can barely stop myself from rolling my eyes at the question.
Ugh, not the ‘good news, bad news’ trope.
I’m so not in the mood for this. I sigh audibly, unable—and unwilling—to contain my irritation with this whole situation and the way he seems to be stalling on just getting it over with and telling me what I need to know.
On another note, what is it with people and this damn question? ‘Do you want the good news or the bad news first?’ Jesus, does it fucking matter? Really, what tangible difference does it make which I hear first? I mean, won’t I eventually hear them both, regardless?
