I never let my therapist get a chance to say time's up. He picks up his pad to sign and I'm trained to look for my check. In fact, we have whole nonverbal conversations now. Sometimes instead of picking up my check I jut out my chin and cross my arms. Which he correctly reads as "it has not actually been fifty minutes and I'm not budging". He's got a nasty habit of making up time on me.

But I must hate it or I wouldn't make so sure he never has a chance to say it.

Another one I really hate is

"What would you like from me today." This is his way of saying "I know I'm missing the mark and we're both getting frustrated." But I really wish he would just say that. Last time I said "I *hate* it when you ask that!" and he responded "I know. (with a smile) What I mean is would you like me to problem solve with you, or would it be more helpful for me to listen."
