Oh my dear Lord in heaven!
You know how sometimes there are times when you do something and it does occur to you, however fleetingly, that it might upset someone? And then there are other times when it never crosses your mind, not even for a millisecond, that anyone could possibly have any problem with what you are about to do? Have you ever had anyone get pissed off at you in the latter situation?
It just happened to me and I’m completely gobsmacked. And it’s not that I was deluding myself into thinking that nobody would get angry about it; it is honest-to-goodness something that is so extremely minor, so unimportant, that the thought of someone getting ragingly pissed about it is ludicrous. Not to mention that this is a person with whom I’ve never had “issues” before, so it’s not like it was to be expected. This didn’t come out of left field, this came from, like, Mars or something.
Making it worse is the fact that the person threw a big, semi-public hissy fit (without actually saying who or what was the trouble – passive-aggressive, much?) and also, apparently, has been complaining to two mutual acquaintances about how awful I am for this heinous crime against humanity.
I sure hope the person has a good weekend. He/she apparently needs it because today must have just sucked.


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.
