It’s friday again! Yeah! I got to work an hour early this morning and have achieved more in that one hour then I do in four. I like being alone in the office first thing in the morning. I can have my coffee, no phones interrupting, no one asking me a dozen questions… just peace. I needed it this morning.
I went home in such a mood yesterday! I have too many men in my life! I am the only female at work and most of my adult life I have been around men more than women mostly because of the jobs I have worked on and the fact that I have more single male friends then female. Don’t get me wrong , I like hanging out with them. The drama is less, it’s still there just different. There is nothing fake about them. What you see is what you get. But OMG! They are soooo clueless!
The discussion in the office yesterday started with some joking around about all the crazy phone calls we had been getting. Then it went to women being crazy. Ok I did admit that we can be a little on the crazy side. Then the conversation took a turn in a new direction….. One of the guys, who has been married for less than a month, asked me and I quote ” Why is it when women hit their 40’s they have a mid-life crisis and start dressing and acting like a teenager?” OK… this is fine… I can educate him a little. As soon as I started on ” not every woman goes through……” I saw this look on his face that said ” yea well I asked but I really don’t want to hear it.” Then my boss says , and I quote again, ” Yea they turn 40 and it’s then all about me, me, me.” I was done with that conversation. I didn’t want to blow up , so I changed the subject and went back in my office. I left work later without saying goodbye, goodnight , see ya. I just left!
For most of us, we spend 20 years of our lives taking care of children, husbands, and some time parents. We feed them, make sure they have a clean house, take care of them when we are sick, wash their dirty underwear and listen to me, me, me when they have a bad day!
I was in such a mood I went straight home. Mistake, should have went to the gym. My “Man” came home , after taking the day off to go crabbing with a buddy, with a slight buzz. Didn’t catch a thing, didn’t put anything back where he got it, and asked me why I wasn’t at the gym. I told him I was having a bad day and I just got the “Oh great!” look. He didn’t ask me what happened just started telling me about his adventures in crabbing. I walked out of the room and started cleaning. That’s what I do when I’m pissed. Got a lot done. Even cut the grass! I did all of that while Mr. King of the Crabs napped on the couch. He had to heat leftovers beans for dinner. Ha, he hates leftovers. When he asked me where the cornbread was I handed him a box of jiffy.
Wish I was there!
I am just going to chill and keep my comments to myself because if I see one eye rolling or “it must be that time of month” expression on one of these guys faces, I might have to knock them in to next year!
Have a great weekend!
