in which Mt.St. Ann explodes

Here's the thing. I am a GOOD person. I am a NICE person. I try my absolute damndest do be a CARING person.

and yet, some weeks, it feels like the world is poo-ing on my head.

I don't understand how some people get a pass for their behaviors and are just able to act however they want whenever they want and nobody bothers to correct them.

Really...in whose world is it okay to send an anonymous scathing email telling me how much I pretty much suck because I wont cancel classes the day before Thanksgiving when THE WHOLE UNIVERSITY does not observe that wednesday AND your student's class got LAST WEDNESDAY off?

In what world is it okay to yell at me because your schedule is inflexible??

Why are other people allowed to flake out and make stupid mistakes and I'm expected to be understanding and kind and yet if I make a mistake I'm a terrible person who doesn't care?

Why do social rules apply to me and not to other people? I just don't get it. It's not that I don't think that I've stuck my foot in my mouth before and no one has said anything...I Know that I have inadvertently hurt people's feelings and no one has said anything because they 'understood' I was having a bad day... What I'm talking about is the situation where someone KNOWS how mean they are being, KNOWS that what they are saying is just not acceptable or appropriate and they just go right ahead and do it anyway. What is WRONG with them??? Never in my life EVER EVER EVER in my life have I blatantly just treated someone who was trying to HELP ME like they were dirt beneath my feet. If anything, I'm the one who goes back to secretly leave an extra tip when other people in my party are rude.

Seriously world....wtf.

*sigh*

pity party is over...thanks for listening. back to the line of disgruntled and angry asshats.

blessings:

my dad hasn't spontaneously combusted from the 2nd blessing :-)

I understand exactly what you mean!!

I have to share this story with you. My mom is the financial aid director at the JUCO in our town. For the most part she likes her job but when dealing with idiots who can't take responsiblity for their own actions her fuse gets really short. But for once I got even with one of those SOB's who were causing her problems. Before I moved in with TNT I had an apartment in a barn house. Loved living there and use to mingle with the college students who boarded their horses there. That one day the chick is blowing and going about the b*tchy Financial Aid director who won't give her any money. I asked this chick when she got her paper work in. The chick gave me a weird look and said last week. I told her, "so you expect the FA director to have your money ready ASAP when you turn your paperwork in over a month late. She didn't know what to say. I walked away and never said I knew the FA director.
