It’s Not You, It's Me. Wait! I Take That Back...

Color me grouchy, but I have reached the end.

Listen – I’m busy – so I’m going to make this short and sweet:
  • I don’t think your child is perfect. I’ve met the moppet – there’s still work to be done.
  • I’m tired of reading your 20th “I hardly ever forward these things, but…” email.
  • If I wanted to watch a drama, I'd turn on the tv or go to the theater.
  • Yes, I’ve got a lot on my plate. Sitting with you, sharing how many things I have going on, isn’t the most effective use of my time.
  • You know that funny story about last night? It’s not funny when you tell it three or four times to the same people.
  • You’re desperate for help since you waited to the last minute? Too bad.
  • I don’t have just 5 minutes to listen to your unsolicited sales pitch.
  • No, I don’t want fries with that. I want what I ordered.
Thank you. I feel much better!

Now, back to work...


  1. Hmmm....sit down dear, and take a deep, long breath. Methinks you have too much on your plate.

  2. Pet peeve .... I order through the drive-through, and say, "I'd like (whatever) and that's all" and they repeat it back and then say, "Would you like to a)add something or other or b)large size that because it's cheaper." NO! Please give me what I ordered!

  3. I do need a break...thankfully, I have vacation days tomorrow and Friday.

    I also need yoga and a run, neither of which I can do until this stress fracture heals. :(
