I am usually a pretty laid back person, fairly accepting of pretty much anything. But there are some things that just irritate the hell out of me. Judgemental, insulting, condescending people are one of those things, ESPECIALLY when that person constantly claims to be above all that. Ungrateful, arrogant, obnoxious people are another one of those things. And I have had two too many encounters with both of these things in the past few days.
I find it incredibly disrespectful when I have been insulted and stick up for myself, I am met with a completely judgmental and condescending attitude. The assumption that I should just sit there and take it and not say anything just pisses me off. Why should I? And once I have defended myself, I am talked to like I am a child and need to taught “how things are”? WTF? I think, by 38, I can probably figure it out for myself. It is so completely irritating!
And then we move on to encounter #2, the ungrateful, obnoxious and arrogant! It was totally a case of killing the messenger, so it was not deserved in any way. What is the point in trying to do the right thing and save someone some grief if you are going to be crapped on for it? It is irritating, when I know perfectly well what the situation is and was trying to avoid issues for them.
