I don't know whether I was born cranky, or life has made me this way. More likely it's some of the humans that inhabit this earth that have caused my angst. This past week or so, I think I've been crankier than usual! Perhaps I should get it "off my chest" and then I'll feel better, renewed to begin again with a much better frame of mind. Big things and little things make me cranky. I'll list a few, in no particular order.
Terrorism and those who partake in it
The envy and hate that causes such acts and intentions of terrorism
Those who leave the table without putting their chair back in place
Phone calls from "Call Centres"....(I told one caller, politely, the other evening, "I don't accept these calls", to which I received this answer, "Just listen to me!" I promptly, firmly and quite angrily replied, "I don't HAVE to listen to you!" And I slammed the phone down! I wasn't polite then, purposely!)
People who suddenly ignore you without rhyme nor reason
Those who do not acknowledge receipt of gifts
Unexpected knocking on my door
Those who do not understand nor respect the feelings of others
Being taken for granted
Bad table manners
People who talk to hear their own voices and don't give time or effort to listen to another
Running out of wine
Slow and careless drivers
Biting my tongue...literally!
Those not sensitive to the feelings of another...or have I sad that in so many other words?
Making mistakes...my own
Breaking something valued, if only valuable to myself
That should do me for now I'd better stop before I convince you completely that I'm a cranky person. I'm not...only sometimes! I think this is one of those "times". I can be as changeable as the wind. And the wind has certainly changed a few times this past week!
One bright spot upon my immediate horizon is I have fresh fish fillets to be cooked and eaten later. My landlords called by with some of this morning's catch. That is something to look forward to, as simple as it may seem.
See...already I'm feeling much better!
