Ladies, this question is for you. Gentlemen, you are invited to give an alibi or explanation as you feel so inclined.
Sometimes when I speak to my husband, he practices selective deafness where he does not acknowledge that anything has been said. At other times, he grunts in affirmation implying that something has been said, but is not worth listening to.
Do you think it is it less frustrating to be unheard (where whatever you say is totally ignored) or not be listened to (where you say something but it is deemed unworthy of attention)?
