Yeah but... talking to one's own family should be more important than reading the daily newspaper or watching television, it just should. Sorry, but expressing love and compassion through roofing repairs and quietly sitting on the couch is a poor substitute for being engaged with the people closest to you.
Perhaps it's just me, but when someone behaves as if they don't give a ****... it usually means they really don't give a ****.
I think you might be pulling at the extremes a little here. I agree one should have a place and partake in the family, but that doesn't mean you have to be and must be a chatterbox the whole time. Some people are naturally quiet, it doesn't mean that they don't get involved in the family, it just means they don't sit there gossiping all the time.
I know what you're saying Sparrow and I know the type of person you're thinking of when you describe someone ignoring the family for their own interests - but I disagree that its the case with SJ's specific situation. (at least from what SJ has told us of course).
