My New Year's Resolution was to stop giving people my

What are you some kind of idiot?


Well, I made it two weeks.  Of course the first week I was on vacation and I took off this past Wednesday so technically I made it four days.

I really try not to be condescending, I really do but when I am asked the same questions over and over I get a tad cranky.  I don't think I would even mind if it were reasonable questions that require some thought.  But I get questions like

The sky is purple...right?

You can eat dirt as long as it is covered in Bosco...correct?

I told him that he can make an appointment as long as he jumps off the building with an umbrella fifteen minutes prior.  Is that okay?

Notice how these decisions have already been made and I am expected to confirm that they were made correctly.  So instead of being asked...

Are we supposed to take the change from the parking meter and shove it up our ass?

I get

By the way, I shoved three quarters up my ass and now need to be reimbursed. Is that okay?

If none of these things make any sense to you...welcome to my world.

I am changing my New Years Resolution to something a bit easier to keep.  Like promoting World Peace.

That's the problem, unless you live in a air raid bunker with no TV, Radio or contact with other humans, your gonna run into an idiot. The fact that lasted more than two weeks is amazing and should be celebrated. Now, how many times should I poke this stick in my eye?

I have patience for a lot of things, but cats in heat and stupid people are not two of them.

Will y'all please quit talking about me as if I weren't in the room? Damn!

Evil Twin's Wife said...

Stupid people are why I'm glad to be a stay at home mom - I don't have to deal with anyone if I don't want to! :-)

Christine said...

Sorry CP...didn't think you were listening from your corner drooling.

christine--but...stupid people are SO much fun to f*** with and confuse, and make them do stupid stuff, while convincing them that it's absolutely neccessary to do this! (well, that was in the 80's, when my job wasn't an important officew job, just a fun one in a grocery store)
