Probably not as well as he should.
Actually, he's the one who usually unloads his day's tale on me. I sometimes get the opportunity, but usually he beats me to it.
When I try tell H about something or about a conversation I've had, lately, he's been doing this arm and hand thing, like a roll over like kind of thing that signifies, "Okay, get to the point" and it drives me nuts. So, now when he does that, I just go silent and go back to whatever it was I was doing. He's slowly getting the message. I also started doing the arm/hand roll over thing to him when he starts lamenting on his day....hopefully he will get the point and be a better listener.
I'm trying to remember if he used to be a better listener and I'm fairly certain he was. Oh well, I guess this is what Girlfriends are for!
lol. I love how you're trying to break him of that habit. I hope it works.
My dh also gives me every little detail of his day.
He is a great listener usually and asks me about my day, but I tend to need to be prompted. I don't give much detail unless asked. That annoys him to no end but he's learning to ask follow-up questions rather than assume I'll just tell him everything.
I did, you just weren't listening.
