Giving Myself A Time Out!!

Today at the grocery store, it took every ounce of sanity I had to not punch another woman in the face for being an ignorant witch. This is a scary sign to me that I need to go sit quietly for awhile.

Normally I am a very nice, laid back person, but for whatever reason today, I am at my wits end. For reasons I can't discuss, the last eight months have been sheer health for me stress-wise. I think it is finally getting to me. Either that, or I am finally sick of the rednecks, white trash, and other assorted idiots that live in my town. I am not sure the exact verdict.

Said woman was not in a line I could tell and was talking on her cell phone. I had six items, so I proceeded to the 9 items or less line. She got off her phone and got pissy with me that she was in line. I told her a really bad word and went and got in another line to keep from beating her up. She was so nasty and ugly, with an attitude, that she pretty much deserved an ass kicking. Only the fact that I would get arrested stopped me.

The good part of the story is that the line I moved to was faster then my original line, so I left while she was still waiting.

Any way, I am going to give myself a time out and go sit quietly. Hopefully this will make it all better. Cross your fingers.

Have a good night to the all of you- do not catch what I have! Think love.

I wish you some peace now. I had a patron scream at me so much today I had to say I was going to call the police. Bad, bad day.

Aren't people great? Thank you for the well wishes- I really was needing them. I just can't understand why people are so terrible. It boggles my mind!

It sounds like you had a day like mine! Thank God for the weekends (hopefully you get those off)!

Welp, I guess I am lucky that I am usually the 800lbs gorilla in the room. The last serious challenge I can recall was at the movies. The last few minutes of the film, this guy started to squeeze his empty pop bottle making it crinkle and squeak. I said, "Please stop making that noise man." in a normal voice. He stopped for a bit and then I guess decided he was insulted and started it up again a few minutes later. I turned around and looked at him and he did a "what you looking at look?" Then fortunately the credits started. Then he got up and said to me, "You don't tell me what to do man." And started to walk away with his girlfriend. I said, "Hey, you wanna be a man and step up, bring it." He turned around and came back over. I said, "Hey, I promise I won't beat you up in front of your girlfriend, she can go to your car, okay?"
He stood there for a beat and then they just....left. Pretty sad. You want to be a jerk, be ready to back it up I say...

Carl, isn't it sad that it has come to that? I am like you normally in the fact that I am not a small girl- I work out a lot and my muscles tend to bulge after a good workout. Why this woman thought she could be so mean is beyond me.

At any rate, I am going to try to do good deeds to reverse the trend!!
