    I was setting things up

    for a lecture, and the lady looks at me and says "where's the other guy, I miss him. He is actually nice". Super sassy too. I'm not the brightest at comebacks, so I was left dumbfounded.

    Or Not So Subtle

    I've had some recent encounters in my work that have left some people, should I say "disenchanted" (that's putting it lightly) with me.  These people for the most part have gone through their lives doing what they want, thinking the rules of society don't apply to them.  They...

    What the Heck Was That About?

    It's bad enough you're being rude to me, you have to try and be subtle about it... as if there's a chance I might not realize it. Man. I don't much remember people doing this to me because I made a point of steering away from these people. It has somehow become...

    It Sparks My Anger

    I have worked with people in the past that were like this.  They made discreet comments, not specifically to my face but very much rude and made in regards to something that made it evident it was about me.  I prefer people that fully express what...

    Never go out of your way to explain someone your honesty and their faults, because time has it's own way of reveling the truth.
