Things That Suck More Than Mondays

What's got the suck-ometer redlining today?

Being pushed around. People who think they can do/say whatever to you, because you won't raise a stir about it, because you're too damn nice.

Well, I'm in a bit of a stirred up mood (the old saying is perfect: Mad as hell and not gonna take it anymore) so today, a few people will be hearing from me in a not so nice way. Sometimes it seems like it'd be easier to be "that woman" -- you know the one. When she enters her doctor's office, the front office staff cringes. When she walks into her kids' school, the secretary wonders whose head is going to roll. She complains (loudly) about poor service or screwed up paychecks or an error on her bill. You get the picture. Wouldn't it be nice to have other people walk on eggshells, making sure they didn't do you wrong?

Off to raise a ruckus.

Sometimes I think it would be nice to be that person...but I want to be respected because I'm a considerate, reasonable and understanding person...I don't want to be respected because people fear me. I'm a pretty easy going person by nature...I let things go that other people probably wouldn't...some things to me are not worth ruffling feathers over. BUT if it's something I do think is worth out!!
