After only spending 1 hour with her today, I’d filed 7 mental complaints about her. 7.
Maybe it’s just the snowball effect. She does one thing that irritates me and then it just escalates from there… for several years.
Of course, I don’t want to come right out and be all “Shut up, you’re being annoying!” For two reasons: 1. people don’t usually handle words like that very well and 2. I don’t deliver words like that very well (unless I really hate them… like super bad)
So, instead, I’ve been extremely subtly trying to the get message across. There’s the stare.
The stern voice.
The silent treatment.
The segue, “AAAAAnnnyway”
