(N)o Duh

I was informed at the beginning of this week that I am immature and mean.

No! You're kidding me!

I guess she thought this would be some kind of revelation to me, but, (N)o, it was (N)ot.

I'm not always mean, of course. I can be nice, when I want to be. As I get older, though, it seems that I can't hold my tongue quite so much and what I am thinking just comes tumbling out of my mouth and people construe it as mean. I like to think of myself as honest. Sorry if it stings. (This also applies to the keyboard. Add wine and we are in for a lot of fun).

And I am sure it is a sign of my immaturity that I can't keep my snide remarks to myself. At least that was this individual's thought. It quite possibly is true. I know that Miss Manners or Emily Post or one of those snooty bitches considers me immature because I like to cut all of my meat up before I eat it. That is not only immature but rude. I just don't want to have to stop to cut more once I get started so I cut it all right at the beginning. And if I am immature (and rude) in my table manners that it is not such a stretch that I would be immature (and rude) in other areas.

But you know what? I'm okay with it.

You go girl! Be who you are, not what others want you to be!

I'm with Shannon! Be YOU! :) But if you could be you in a different color you might be easier to follow. LOL. I just realized that I have to squint to read your blog and it always leaves me with a little headache. Not what you say ... just the colors you say it in. :)

Who the hell called you mean and immature??? Want me to come kick their @$$? XD

Hey, I'm the same way. My honesty comes out and sounds like I am mean. I've had people call me "the meanest, most hurtful person" they have ever met. Granted, I turned away so they wouldn't see the tears in my eyes, but fine. If that is how they feel, I certainly don't need them in my life.

I have no brain to mouth connection. I say whatever pops in my little head. I don't think you are mean or rude or immature. In fact, I think you're fun and entertaining, but maybe because we're similar? XD

Be you; honesty is an admirable quality and if they don't like it, too bad!

You would get along well with my sister, and since I get along well with her, I'd get along well with you...or something.
She claims that she is not mean She just says what other people just keep in their heads!
