Why is it so hard to take the high road? My hubby will always tell me that you never have regrets when you do so..and that is SO true. The other day I was at the nail salon, and this woman was SUPER rude to me. She blocked my car in and when I went inside to ask her to move her Suburban so I could get my car out, she started yelling at me because I was parked where the employees park..although there are no signs that state employee parking and it was the ONLY LEGAL spot open to park in when I arrived. She parked behind me in the middle of the parking lot. I was really flabbergasted that SHE was in the wrong and was yelling at me for being in the right. That day, I just continued to walk to my car as she was ranting on and on about having to burn the extra few calories it took to move her vehicle ( and mind you she NEEDED the extra calorie burn!)
I took the high road that day and did not say what I really wanted to say. Normally I would have responded to her with not so nice words, but I wasn't willing to let this person ruin the perfect day I was having.
So today I email my BFF's husband about a pool table they were wanting to get rid of. My BFF past away from cancer in September and I know her hubby is having a really hard time. We don't live close, but any time that we have been in an area that we could get together we have called, and he has been too busy for us. ( I think he is trying to get together with this younger lady and any time that we have called, he has been busy with her). So today when he responds to my text, it's rude, short, and says he got rid of it in October..the last time he saw us. We try and call at least once a week, sometimes he will call us back most times not. We really are trying as best we can to keep up with him and offer our friendship, but since my BBF's passing, this is twice he has sent rude texts.
I REALLY wanted to respond today, but DH says TAKE THE HIGH ROAD. Why is it such a hard thing to do? Sorry for the rant. Just a perfectly GREAT day ruined by yet another turd of the world! UG!
