I Don't Mind, Do I?

One day at the library, I was checking out the first season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars on DVD. It's still shocks me that the show has had four seasons on Cartoon Network already. I've hardly been watching the network ever since Ed, Edd n Eddy was cancelled. The latest shows on the network are somewhat whack. I could no longer handle being a part of it's fan base the way I used to be.

When my books were getting checked out the librarian asked me if I mind if she could put rubber bands on the DVD set. If I opened it at any time, there was a possibility that all the CD's inside would fall out.

"Do you mind?" she asked me.

I didn't have a problem with it. But this is how I confused her. Instead of shaking my hand, I moved it up and down. It made her think I did mind it, even though I didn't. Five seconds later, I came to a realization that I gave her the wrong response. I didn't mind her putting rubber bands on it. I walked away feeling like a complete fool.

This is something I have a habit of forgetting. If you don't mind anything, say or show that you don't mind it. If you do, say or show that you do. There are times when I get mind and don't mind confused and accidentally gives people the opposite response. I don't mind anything, but I accidentally tell them I do mind.

Do you have a habit of doing that or is it just me? Please agree! Don't make me feel left out. Lol
