I don’t do “bitch” well…

Bitchy WomanThis morning I was rolling my work bag behind me, carrying my blackberry and coffee in the other hand. I’m walking towards the door of my building and there’s a guy approaching from the walkway to my right fixing to get to the door before me.

“Awesome!” I say in my head. “Please use the door on the left because that will be so much easier for me to follow you in.” (The left hand side is auto-assisted, the right is not).

He opened the right-hand door and let it close behind him.

Are you kidding? “Wow,” I said outloud. And that’s where it fell apart.

I let go of my bag to pull open the left-hand door and the guy is turning around saying, “I’m so sorry. I didn’t realize you were coming in this way.”

I felt like crap. I told him I was having a shit morning (true – I think I just got strep throat for my birthday) and I was being catty (also, true in the moment). He was holding the elevator, asking what floor I need and saying that it was incredibly rude of him.

Which it was.

BUT, I guess you just never know the real intentions of random people you come across. Are there are a lot of truly rude, obnoxious and stupid people in the world? Of course! Is it worth it for me to bring myself down to that level and look like a total bitch without really understanding what’s going on with other people? At this point, I really don’t think so.

About Mama's a Mess

Who am I and what am I doing here? Well, at the end of the day I'm a mother and a wife, a lover of classic monster movies and comic books, of music, TV and movies. I'm a sucker for pop culture. I'm a fangirl. I'm an artist. As my husband always puts it, "Baby, you're a mess!" I have a penchant for creating and collecting. I feed my brain with a mix of anything from hot rods and pin-ups to handmade and natural. I like to dig in the dirt and grow things but sometimes picture myself doing it like Donna Reed. I will always, always choose to wear a dress first. I am head over heels in love with my husband and have a fantastically crazy life with him.
