This And That
First thing… thanks to all for checking out the music yesterday and sorry about the tiny writing on my music list, I tried to change it last night but I thought I would go crazy as my pc was running very slow. I also had wanted to get a little more in depth on the music subject but again pc was slow (so was the operator!) I'm sure another day will provide…
So…. I was thinking… it’s a scary thing but I do it from time to time! A few days ago I had to go to the bank! Woo hoo! That’s always fun isn’t it? waiting in that line for who knows how long only to be told you have the wrong form from some poor person that hasn’t seen actual light in who knows how long… they look the same don’t they? Kind of gray with blank look on their faces…. I think everyplace should have natural lighting… or at least try you know. Anyway there was a woman in front of me, wait first thing I have to say is “personal space”… I'm rambling just stay with me! :~) In Texas I would say the normal personal space is about arm reach, maybe just slightly under. You know what I mean… if you’re in a line at wal-mart the person behind you is going to be about that far away. I'm always asked the differences in Texas and Ireland, this is one…. People in Ireland don’t require as much personal space. I would say if you stick your elbows out that’s what it is here, or maybe just slightly more. Its funny when I first got here I really felt it but it was never intrusive or bad just different. I'm a bit funny about my space anyway so it’s most likely just me being weird!
Anyway I was in the line at the bank. Woman in front of me, she was tall (I am short though). I don’t know about you but I look around when I'm just standing there. I looked and she was looking at me… so I smiled :~) that’s what I usually do when someone looks at me. Most smile back, but not her. She looked at me with a horrid frown and like I had horns coming out of my head and stared! I was having a bad hair day but I didn’t think it was just that bad!
Anyway… I just looked away. blah blah what a miserable person she must be to not even smile… I went back to my looking at bank signs and peoples shoes and realized she had moved as far away from me as she could! It was really really obvious too! She had almost mounted the person in front of her and there was even more personal space between her and I now than in Texas, in fact she could have been in Texas she was that far away! So I'm really irritated by now and start to move in…. creeping closer and closer to her and looking at the ceiling and swaying back and forth… the line moved and so did she and fast! With a turn she now faced me full on and gave me a forced twisted smile. How pathetic!
I looked at her for a second then stuck my tongue out and never looked at her again! Bitch!
You know it doesn’t take much too just be nice! I'm not bragging or anything like that but I think I'm a pretty nice person even if I do stick my tongue out at a few people from time to time! :~P I always smile at people and say hello or ask how someone is at a checkout line… if I know them I ask about their children or husband or whatever. I pay attention to what someone says to me even if sometimes I do forget! I always say thank you and it’s not because I'm trying, it’s just me!
In saying that, I say what I think too! Again a few days ago I was going into a shop… up the ramps with my knees its easier and I'm to slow on steps. Up the ramp and click click behind me… coming up fast I could tell she was in a hurry! So…… at the turn I stood aside to let Miss click click pass me. She flew past nearly taking a toe with her! Never looked back and never even let on I was there! Well let me tell you it ruffled my feathers! I said in a loud voice before she was gone… “You’re welcome!” Oh well I don’t mind it really I know everyone has a bad day here and there. But still…
I'm no saint I have been rude to people before but to honest they usually deserved it! :~) lol!
Anyway I suppose we all do ebb and flow like the yin yang we cycle and circle. And the only way there is an opposite is if there is something to be opposite of!
Oh! one more thing..... The beans used in the making of this photo were harmed! And are now in a pot with ham cooking! Soon to be in my tummy! Yumm!!!
I have decided to do a Project 365! Here is just a bit of info behind every pic.
I have an Etsy shop now! Check it out here!!!!
