Therapeutic Whine

To my therapist:
Seriously, I am not paying $130 an hour to chat with you about your friends' place in Florida.  Or about alligators.  I like Curb Your Enthusiasm, too, but I'm not paying $130 to listen to you recount your favorite episodes.  I'm sure you meet a lot of interesting people in  your line of work, and normally, I love to gossip, really, but I'm not paying $130 an hour to gossip with you about your  friends and other patients. 
Maybe you can call me up sometime to chit-chat, but I'm paying you $130 an hour to talk about ME, okay?

I can't believe that your therapist does that. So awful. I also can't believe that you're paying someone $130 an hour (and I bet it's really 45 minutes, am I right?) when we're right here for you, free of charge and full of wisdom!

I completely agree. Actually, there's a lot of people who feel the exact same way. Check it out on ih8that.com, http://www.ih8that.com/

I've been with my therapist for as long as I've been with my husband (actually, a month longer).

Now I'm finding a gay man just isn't doing it for me like he used to. I'm thinking of switching. But I need to talk it over with my therapist first.

I can't believe him/her either. You need to switch plans girlfriend!
