I surprised myself!
That just wasn't me but however I let something really bug me yesterday.
Was it because
1. I have less patience for negative thoughts and feelings as I get older?
2. Am I so used to being alone (during this pandemic) that I feel less comfortable around a lot of people?
3. That people in general are much more rude in this day and age?
4. Or have I just become that grouchy old lady I was so afraid of becoming?
What happened was (and this has happened before just recently) that a group of us met in the courtyard to hear a concert. And, I couldn't enjoy the music because of all the talking going on around me.
The woman sitting next to me asked me, 'What did he say?" and I answered "I have no idea. I couldn't hear him for all the talking going on".
Well, the two women standing just 3-4 feet from me and who was talking overheard me and one turned around and said, 'You should have told us to shut up."
And, by golly, that's what I did!! I told her to shut up.
It just erked me to no end that people are so rude as to talk with a concert is going on. I know, I should have just gotten up and left which I did at another concert when two women were sitting next to me carrying on a conversation. Where have manners gone?
Okay, got that off my chest! 😁
