•How My Sister Makes Decisions•

Also, how she drives me NUTS 🌰
  1. She will narrate he entire process aloud for my enjoyment
    ::eye roll::
  2. We start with the question-
    What showing of Dory should we see?
  3. There are only three later showings on Sunday
    Should be easy!
  4. She provides a detailed rundown of her entire day leading up to the movie time options:
    When she gets up, when she leaves the house for work, how busy work will be, what tasks she has, what hours she'll work, what time she hopes to leave, how long it takes to drive home, that she needs to walk her dog, take a shower, when her husband will return home from his job, when they can reasonably leave their house, when they could leave if they truly rushed, traffic projections, parking availability, and advanced ticket purchasing options.
  5. She has still not said which time is best.
  6. I tell her I prefer the 7:15 showing.
    (no detailed description)
  7. She launches into a full onslaught of details on why 7:15pm could or could not work for them.
    When they can leave, drive time, traffic predictions, would we eat dinner after the movie? How long is the movie? (IMDB search commences)
  8. I suggest the 8pm
    (Again, no details)
  9. She launches into a full onslaught of details on why 8pm could or could not work for them.
    Possible traffic at this time, when to eat dinner, will there be a line for a table?, 3D v. 2D, price differences, reserved seating?
  10. I suggest the 8:45pm
    (Again, no details)
  11. She launches into a full onslaught of details on why 8:45pm could or could not work for them.
    Plenty of time for dinner beforehand, but where? Also they would get home quite late.. maybe too late? The dog would be alone a long time, and needs to go out before bed, and it would be very dark and buggy. Is this a best last option?
  12. We're exhausted all three possible movie times.
    She wants a day to think about it. I want to slam my face into the stove.
  13. I realize we'll still need to pick a dinner spot..
    Full speed... into the stove.
