Every week, I have mommy angst that builds up. Day after day I have small encounters with random people that really piss me off or irritate me. This angst collects like hot lava in a volcano, only to be unleashed with fury on an unsuspecting family member or friend. If you think Heathrow Airport’s got ash cloud problems this week, just watch my wrath.
But in an effort to spare my immediate friends this grump-funk I get into, I’ve decided to utilize this forum to let it all out. And so, I bring you my Friday Flip-Offs. You are welcome to add yours and then we’ll all be in a much better place entering the weekend.
To the mom at the preschool who I haven’t formally met, but with whom I share mutual friends, with whose daughter my daughter plays with, and who sees me 5 days a week and looks right through my friendly, smiling face as if I don’t exist: I flip you off. I’m sure you might be very nice, but you come off like a self-absorbed snit.
To the EBay buyer who won my auction of 25 items of little boys’ clothes in perfect condition for $8 and then complained after the fact that she shouldn’t have to pay $12 in shipping: I flip you off. And by the way, your grammar sucks too.
To the health care professional who didn’t return my emails and phone calls, then lied about why she didn’t, then acted as if she did me a favor for not charging me an “appointment cancellation fee” when my daughter had strep throat: I flip you off in 25 different ways and languages.
Ah. Thank you, blogosphere. My family appreciates you being my virtual punching bag. Have a GREAT Friday.
