Today I was up before 3 to make coffee, shower and be out the door by 3:45 yes, that’s AM.
Off to work where I feel relatively good until someone, a stranger, tells me I “look half asleep”.
Why do people think it’s okay to say things like that?
The “you look tired” or “you look like I feel” are all undisguised insults- blatant insults hurled at someone you don’t even know, and said with a smile…
How the Hell do they presume to know what I look like asleep, or half asleep, or when I’m tired or feeling great?
What ever happened to “GOOD MORNING” as a greeting asshole?
You don’t know what’s going on in my life.
I could have just come out of a coma and your comment could have really been below the belt.
Maybe it’s time to sign up for an etiquette class… or how about we teach propriety to children in school, since there appear to be very few adults skilled enough to pass on basic manners to their children.
It’s now 1:18, yes that’s PM. I’m going back to bed.
That was my ten minute rant, and I feel better, although I still “look like I’m half asleep”.
