Stupid People

Chivalry Dead, Manners On Life Support

guy giving you the fingerWhat the hell is wrong with people?  Have the majority of people in the world been raised by a pack of wolves?

Today I got up, got showered, got dressed, got in my car and got going to work.  Along the way, I was cut off, not once, not twice but three times.  The third time, the lovely lady who cut me off actually honked and waved her fist at me.  I actually had the nerve to be in the lane she wanted to be in.  I’m such a bitch.

So, I make it to the office.  Relief.  I enter the front doors and head to the elevator.  The guy standing at the elevator looks at me, walks into the elevator and lets the door close.  Presto, I am the invisible bitch.

At one point during this fabulous day, I call a supplier to find out about something the company had ordered.  The very nice customer service lady is helpful and gives me plenty of information.  I thank her profusely.  She responds with “Uh huh” and hangs up.  Has “you’re welcome” become politically incorrect overnight?  How about “my pleasure”?  “Sure thing”? “De nada”?  “No f*cking prob, Bob”?  The thought crossed my mind that she may have been the woman who cut me off and honked.  No, not likely.  I guess along with being a lane-hog and not elevator-worthy, I do not merit common courtesy.  Sigh.

I finish my day, get back in my car and come home.  Ahhh, safe haven.  My 2 year old smiles and hugs me.  I am visible again.  He tells me he loves me.  I am worthy again.

I do, however, remain a bitch 🙂

    The most important thing was getting to office and then back home safely to see your 2 years old smiling and hugging you. That is most real. All that you had been through in the day were just illusions; they didn’t matter at all. 🙂

  • Hey Nicky,

    sounds like a normal day in the current social environment. Hey, at least you can remain a bitch 😉

  • Seems like you need a few more lessons in bitchology. A true bitch wouldn’t be offended by these actions but look at them as a platform for their bitchiness. Next time someone honks at you, look at them, smile (for politeness sake) and then stick your tongue out – it will make you feel wonderful.

  • BK – Absolutely right! In the end, the only thing that mattered was that hug.

    Apollo – To be truthful, I was a bitch before that day began, and nothing that happened on that day (or any other) has changed that even slightly…lol

    Sheila – Consider me a selective bitch. I choose to be bitchy to the people I think deserve it (and that covers a lot of ground!). Bitchiness and rudeness do not necessarily go hand in hand. And, I wasn’t offended so much as aggravated.

    It is dead. I could go on about the lady at my bank but it’s not worth it. Fuck ’em! That’s what I say. Bitches, and invisible bitches unite!

  • Bank people are the worst! Consider us united, and if I may say so, I find myself in good company 🙂

  • This reminds me of an old Zig Ziglar story:

    As you get in the car on a gorgeous sunny day and head to work, your happy and listening to the radio, singing along to one of your fav songs. Then out of the blue this idiot cuts you off and you start shouting at him, giving him the finger how dare him, on and on. You get into the office and the first person you see, you tell them how this jack ass cut you off and he ought to learn hoe to drive and so on. The more you talk about it, the more incensed you get, until…..

    You sit back in your chair and think for a minute and just then it hits you…….. this guy that cut you off doesn’t even know you exist, your name, nothing and his day is going along just fine. But here he is, this unknown SOB who cut you off and has affected your life to the point you forgot about what a beautiful day it was and well you get the point.

  • Well I guess I’ll be the first to crap on the bitch party! Life goes on and is what we make it for our own individual self, if that is choosing to be as bad as they are or just roll it off the back man!

  • Jodi, thanks for stopping by. I didn’t lean on my horn, give anyone the finger or even call anyone a nasty name. I chose to come home, let my son put the sunshine back in my life, write out my frustration and then move on. Hopefully that means I wasn’t as bad as “they” were. Like I said before, being bitchy and being rude do not necessarily go hand in hand.
