wasn't there a forum for that?
anyways, the question is;
is there a name/condition for when a person takes what someone else says and twists it into something else?
I'll give an example;
a few yrs back, a group of us at work decide to have a drink together at a local watering hole by the name of kelseys road house on a friday after work.
so there are like 4 or 5 guys just chit chatting, nothing real serious, nobody is drunk, just having a cpl beers and talking about whatever, and we all go on our merry way with nothing in particular sticking out to remember.
come monday at work, there is a poo storm, one of the guys from friday tells the wife of another attendee, that he was bad rapping his wife to all of us at the roadhouse when no such thing happened! we were puzzled by the claim ans were wondering what was wrong with rudy.
I got to figure, beside calling someone like that a trouble maker, they must have a mental or medical condition that would make them imagine something that wasn't said, or putting it another way, misread/mishear something. [[ besides who would want to knowingly stir up trouble in a marriage ]] and the person who started it was a homosexual, so he had no interest in the mans wife.
is this a "condition", that has a name or am I making something out of nothing? because that is very common or normal....[ not to me ] but perhaps the rest of you folks it may be, I dunno, that's why I'm asking.
I had another co-worker experience like this, but instead of just witnessing it, this guy was bending the supervisors ear about me, and my life was miserable for a while til the supervisor called a truce [ and she never told me why ]....[ the guy was referred to by others that knew him, as section 8.]
I never knew that, nor knew it was him til after our group split up to other areas, then someone told me because they figured I wouldn't drive that far outta my way to confront him, and he was right.
what the heck is it that makes folks flip like that?
I know I can't be the only one who experienced this or heard about it. I just want to know if it's a mental condition or not.
