I remember this guy in the 90’s that really liked me and I kept pushing him away.
He was a truly nice guy, so one day he asked me, “Patrice, why don’t’ you like me?” I replied, “Do you really want to know the truth.?” Of course he said yes! Well, people say that all the time but never really mean it.
The truth can be hurtful or make you appear to be a monster when you are simply being honest.
This handsome, kind young gentleman’s hygiene was deplorable but he was a ray of sunshine to be around.
Naturally, I told him that his teeth were really dirty and that I could see the buildup of plague inches thick and wondered how he could stand it.
That didn’t sit well with him at all but he dealt with it.
Years later, I saw him in passing and his teeth were immaculately clean and beautiful…we had a great conversation and parted ways.
The last time I saw him, he was holding the hand of this extremely pretty girl we both looked at each other and smiled. Moral of my story, somebody had to tell him instead of accepting it especially if he wanted to be in my face 24/7 chasing me down streets.
It did him good and he actually thanked me for telling him!!!
That’s what childhood friends are for 🙂
I am at a point in my life that I have zero tolerance for nonsense. The things I used to ignore are indicators that there may be a mental issue with certain folks.
It doesn’t take much to get on my nerves especially when you are an adult and should know at the minimum on how to be respectful.
Some situations no matter how the other person is behaving you always take the high road it’s just not worth looking like the second donkey. Civility will keep your blood pressure down as well.
Besides, most of the time the people who annoy the heck out of you aren’t meant to be in your life anyway.
No matter how much I may want to body slam a chick for talking sideways out the mouth ignoring her is just as effective even if you just don’t get the same satisfaction out of dabbling with violence.
Well, the police will place those nice silver tone bracelets on you and you will have a record follow you for the rest of your life! So, ignoring is by far the better choice praying that person doesn’t violate your space making you lose all control.
Another annoying thing is guys who are desperate and smother you with this idea that they own you. Are you kidding me? No ring and you want me to do what and not to do what? You will NEVER own me ok so move out of my way while I do me.
I am just annoyed today about everything for no particular reason…I listen to every word and read every text as if it’s the last word I will ever read or the last word I will ever hear.
I always seemed to miss so many things in the past that people said to me, you know those indicators (warning signs & red flags!) because I was caught up in the moment.
I let their actions that revealed everything I needed to know get tucked under the rug giving them a pass. How many freaking passes do you give a person?
I just can’t deal with anymore liars, phony folks, cheaters or people who are just down right inconsiderate in every way possible it makes me ill.
I am not perfect but at least I am not scum beneath the earth that goes around reeking havoc wherever I go.
