No, not really. It’s just that I seem to have a personality people gravitate to. I’m the person that, if you’re having a hard day, I can tell right away and I ask questions and you end up spilling your guts to me. It’s kind of scary. But I do love to listen to people’s lives.
Also, annoying people love me. I always think it’s obvious that I’m annoyed with them, but they think I’m great and it seems like they’re always telling me so. Flattering? Perhaps, but I just have to laugh sometimes and say “why me?”
But sometimes, guess what! I don’t want to listen to your problems. I just want to talk about MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! Bwahahahahaaha!
I don’t know who to say it to, but I had to say it somewhere.
It’s just the way it is. But it’s okay; I’m capable. I can deal with this.
Okay. My life is WONDERFUL! I seriously have the best life ever. The Situation is completely cleared up and has ended better than I would have thought possible. A lot of new developments and plans and hopes have come up in my life. It’s exciting, and I have so much support! I am so thankful.
Anyway, there will always be some people that annoy me. I don’t think I had to handle any annoyances today except for some drivers that I lectured, even though they couldn’t hear me. My cousin was in the car and she got a kick out of it. This was one speech I made.
“Look, just because you’re a big truck, don’t think you can intimidate me, you paltry tailgater! The carpool lane is not a second “fast” lane – it is a normal lane for cars full of normal people. I happen to be going 6 miles over the speed limit, so there is no reason for you to get all upset at me. There are two lanes to my right if you absolutely HAVE to pass.” Eventually I did pull over because my exit was coming up. But the speech made me feel better.
The Situation at work might be getting better. It’s so, so nice to have your boss totally on your side. The whole day was hard like it has been, but maybe just a little less difficult because I’m getting used to certain people treating me like crap now, and it’s just getting old. But at the end of the day I had an impromptu talk with my boss, and it was refreshing to have him completely agreeing with me. I won’t say too much about this situation, but these people are not only treating me and another girl like crap, but they’re goofing off and not working, and my boss is noticing.
It’s so nice to have your boss on your side. I have the greatest boss ever…wow.
I typed a big long entry to this. I erased it because it seems petty when I type out the details.
In short, she who was annoying has become genuinely hurtful. All attempts to find out what’s wrong have come up with her either avoiding me or telling me “everything’s fine”. I am deeply hurt. I’m starting to “get over it” in one sense; I can see we’re not going to be friends anymore, and she won’t tell me why. But I’m still really hurt. I might write her a letter. Sigh.
I’m easily annoyed. The most common word I use out loud when I’m in the car is “jerk”. It’s awful, and I’m ashamed of it, but I talk about my coworkers when they do annoying things – and I love my coworkers! I don’t want to talk badly about people. It’s unprofessional. It’s not kind. It makes them look bad and it makes me look bad.
I think I need another outlet for my annoyance. Suggestions?
