    1. we’re both so focused on what the other is saying or doing that’s wrong that we barely hear anything else. There may have been a time when we might listen to what the other has to say politely, but those days are long gone.

      I believe this statement can sum up many if not almost all of the arguments we have with friends. We just focus on what they are doing wrong or saying wrong at the moment that we forget how much we actually have in common thus making us FRIENDS. I believe the author puts it greatly that the time to be polite is long gone. Could this because of the growing trend of social media?
