Grouchy


I am generally a rather happy and optimistic person. I am not often summarily grouchy. However, this is one of those not so often times.

Today, I am grouchy. I could rattle off a few reasons, each of them small, mostly inconsequential in and of themselves. Together, they have me annoyed. So, let’s make a list. Things that annoy me, which may or may not be things that have specifically annoyed me today:

1. Not getting enough sleep. I am a sleeper. I need 7 hours. If I don’t get 7 hours one night, I may be okay. If it goes two nights in a row, you are guaranteed to be dealing with someone on the grouchy side.

2. People that don’t do what they say they are going to do. This can be relatively simple things such as a phone call or an appointment or whatever. If you say you’re going to do something, just do it. Duh. I don’t know why it is so excusable to NOT do it. Have we said, “That’s okay,” too many times? Is it time that we finally stand up and say, “Actually, your excuse is just that, an excuse. It sucks. You said you were going to call, you have a cell phone, you should’ve used it. If you can’t do something that simple, how am I gonna count on you for big things?” Okay, so that’s extreme. A little.

3. Stupid people. We have a girl at work that I affectionately refer to as Blender Head. Why? Because it looks like she cut her hair in a blender. Anyway, I digress. She asks dumb questions, repeatedly. Lately, she has taken to asking other people, thank God, but she whispers so she thinks I won’t hear her. Look, dumbass, you’re only calling more attention to yourself and your stupid ass question. Who ever said that there is no such thing as a dumb question has never worked with some of the imbeciles that I work with.

4. Waiting. I am not a patient person, by any means. I try to be, honestly. But, I’m not. I hate waiting. I hate waiting for the work day to be over. I hate waiting for people to make up their minds. I hate waiting for things to happen. I hate waiting for people to call. I hate waiting for my martini. I’d like it now, please. And for godsakes, don’t tell me, “Good things come to those who wait.” That’s why I hate waiting, because I know that statement is bullshit.

5. Not being sure of something. I like to know where everyone stands. To get everything on the table, feelings, emotions, baggage, viewpoints, goals, whatever. Air those fuckers out. Let’s get ‘em all out here where we can look at ‘em and make some intelligent decisions, where we all know the score. Granted, I know that isn’t the way we are supposed to do things, but I’m a fan of saying what I mean and meaning what I say. If I want something, I ask for it. If I like it, I say so. I think it would be a lot easier if we all agreed to do that.

6. People with hidden agendas / ulterior motives. This has to be the highest form of deception. I will grant you that I completely open myself up to it and in fact provide a road map on how to do it, if one were to care. And because I’m a trusting person, I often fall for it. But let’s refer to #5 for a moment. Why can’t you just say what you want? Why do you have to hide it in what you think the other person wants to hear? Humph. Don’t answer, those were rhetorical questions.

Obviously, I could go into deeper issues like sexual stereotyping, hate, war, etc. Those are pretty obvious though and would probably only make me more grouchy. No point.

The good news is that this is usually cured by one very large, filthy, slutty, dirty martini with an oodle of olives and a bit of a nap. I wake up much more mellow. In just an hour I can get started on that, thank goodness.

I'm curious if it was intentional on your part to place your last three blog entries together the way you did. Taken together, they seem to gather big chunks of your complex self into a . . . mosaic? I'm not sure, I'm not very poetic. I'll just say that I was struck by the fact that you've opened up parts of yourself across a very wide spectrum.

I hope you got that martini. I hope that more men call you beautiful four times. And I hope that you can continue to offer your heart and yourself, unfettered and full of love.

bardic - Every time I see your pic, I feel like I'm in church looking up at the pulpit.

sailor - Damn... now that's a yummy bit to cheer me up. No, it was not intentional. I write what I feel, and like any complex individual, that changes frequently. I tend to be a bit overly emotional and naive and easily led. I guess I share that in hopes that someone else who is will see that they aren't the only one. No, I didn't have a martini, I was out of olive juice. So I settled for red kool aid. As for being called beautiful..well, I think that may have been a fluke. He has already fallen prey to my swirling vortex of a black hole where all men I'm interested in disappear. As far as offering my heart and my self, well... there's no other way that I know how to do it. So, hurt or not, that's how it is.

Cabo !!!! Where have you been, sweet one?!?! I missed you.

Sunny: Guidelines to pet peeves:
First: "FIDO" when travelling down the road of life and you see something that you dont know if you should stop and be bothered by it,,, FIDO= Fuck It Drive On.

Second: Never let the bastards get you down. If you do, then they have won another small victory against you.

Third: Learn to let go: Proverb of two slaves who carried their respective masters across a river on their shoulders, one continues to complain about how unfair that was. The other responds, I already put my troubles down on this side of the river, why dont you?

Fourth: When all else fails,,, try red neck justice; A backhoe and a hundred pounds of lime. works for me!!!
