09:58 am - I woke up in a bad mood

 
I woke up in a foul mood and it has steadily gotten worse. I've decided I have some things to say...

Do not think you ever have the right to bitch at me to see a doctor, or tell me how concerned you are about my health if you won't do anything about your own. I don't care how much you hate doctors.

If you owe me money please make it a point to never let it reach my ears that you are taking a vacation or that you bought anything other than food. It does affect the friendship because it proves how little you think of me that you can't be bothered to pay me back. If you have enough money to vacation, you have enough to write me a check.

LEARN TO FUCKING DRIVE!!! Yes, I value my life ... and my car. After almost losing both of them twice this morning I'm PISSED. Put down the cell phone. Put your make-up on at home. PAY ATTENTION TO THE FUCKING ROAD!!

You have two feet ... walk three blocks to get a container of cream yourself. Don't wait for me to walk in the door to complain that we are out of cream before I even put my purse down. Does your mommy still do your grocery shopping? 

You know what ... it might be YOU and not the rest of the world. 

Yes, as a matter of fact, I DO think you are on a power trip. You can back peddle all you want. I'll be sitting here in the front row watching as your power trip destroys something for a lot of people.

Know what? I have a pretty damn good bullshit detector and every time you have opened your mouth recently bell, whistles and flashing lights have gone off in my head. 

Even though this post has been chalk full of negativity, I have one more thing to say ... 

Stop spewing the negative. People have stopped listening. Really. As someone told me lately, you CHOOSE to be happy. Don’t like your job? Get a new one. This is really not too difficult. I know. I did it six months ago. Don't like your life? Change it. Just stop all the fucking bitching ALL. OF. THE. FUCKING. TIME.


(You won't believe what they said ... | You have something to say?)

Eeep!

Ummm... yes ma'am?

I know that wasn't directed at me (at least I sure hope not!) but I just wanted to say how much I love the icon!

Choosing to be happy doesn't always involve changing what you're bitching about. Sometimes it's just remembering to accept the things you can't change. I know I can certainly use that reminder now and again!

I sincerely hope things look up for your day and whatever situation this happens to be directed to. Sounds awful!

PERFECT timing!

I realized this morning that I, in fact, DO owe you money. Please email me to remind me a) the amount (I am stuck on $100....is that right?) and b) easiest way to get it to you (mail a check? paypal?).

I do apologize. I am the single worst person in the world when it comes to any kind of debt, which is why all my bills are set to send me both paper and electronic reminders, and sometimes I still manage to forget and have to suck up late fees. Please email me so this can get resolved.

Amen to this. Isn't it funny how they think the people they owe money to won't find out?

Hmmm. Well, speaking only for myself....

...since I am someone who both owes Am money and has a decent amount of travel coming up (and therefore I assume at least part of this post was directed at me), I quite simply forgot I owed her money. Literally. I'll be the first to admit I am horrendous at managing debt, which is why I have an accountant and two calendars, electronic reminders, and paper reminders. Second, the travel is all in conjunction with other people and is being organized via travel plans rather than immediate checks or cash.

And why the hell would anyone talk or post publicly about any kind of vacation or "spending" plans if they were trying to "hide" it from the people or person they owe money to?

Just sayin'. My knee-jerk reaction to defend myself when I believe I am being called out (if I am incorrect, my apologies to both the poster and all readers) is pretty powerful, having been chewed to shreds by rumor mills on more than one occasion.

Your journal is NOT a sea of negativity ... neither are you all that negative in person. You've recently had situation occur, but I've always found you to be one that searches for the light at the end of the tunnel. Bitching about a situation is different than bitching about every fucking single little thing.

i was going to say something similar that whoever this is directed to, it's not about you. YOU are actively trying to do something about it so that you DON'T drown in a sea of negativity. therefore, you aren't just complaining how awful it is but taking no steps to set things right.

besides, i love love love love love reading your journal. especially the think geek baby post. *g*

I find "Stop spewing the negative" a rather odd sentiment to end this post on, even with the caveat above it. That's like saying "I don't mean to insult you, but you're a complete moron." It's completely disingenuous.

In the end, the only person you can affect is yourself. If you want the negativity to stop, that's where to start.

The difference between my venting post and the person that particular comment was aimed at is that everything that falls from my lips is not negative. I believe when I've bottled up stuff for so long to prevent bitch smacking people that I'm entitle to a post to vent some frustration. Once I hit send I felt much better.

THANK YOU!!! I have a similar situation with a friend who owes me money. I want to scream every time they post about another thing they bought. (Sometimes I wonder if they forgot they owe it or for some reason think I no longer expect to be paid back given how often they post about purchases because I can't believe it hasn't occurred to them how ridiculous and insensitive it is.)

I must add though that I need to grow a spine and TELL the person how much it bothers me and that yes, I do want to be paid back. I worry they'll get upset over it. I am such a sucker.

Gotta agree with your 2nd paragraph, though -- we often believe people can read our minds, when they can't. If you're pissed, you have to tell the person you are pissed (or annoyed or concerned or whatever).

Don't you think?

T'adore, cherie.

Even when you're (deservedly) angry, you're well spoken and get right to the point. I wish more people were that way...

That depends ... are you coming with Bethany in October to drink with Snipe and I?

Really, I just needed to vent this morning. Too many straws were about to break this camel's back. I'm good now that I got it all out. In fact I'm having a pretty good day now. :)
