Dum Dum

I was a real dum dum today. I hit a new low. I was totally rude to two ladies. Like not just kind of rude - Outright rude and gruff and so unChristlike. If I could find them right now I would apologize. It just isn't my nature to be rude like I was. It was like I have always wanted to say what I said but at the end of the day it made me feel really really bad. Does anyone remember You've Got Mail? Meg Ryan finally says the right rude comeback and realizes it didn't make her feel any better. Yup, that was me!

I was in line at FM with a cart full and was putting it on the conveyor belt. I was in a hurry. I was going to be late to a rehearsal at a high school. And the checker was SLOW SLOW SLOW and chatty to the lady in front of me. These two lovely women came up with a bag of corn on the cob and asked if they could go in front of me because they were in a hurry. I looked at them and told them that I was in a hurry too. They said they had to get to Merrill. I told them I was going to be late to a rehearsal and my obligations were just as important as theirs if not more important. And then I just kind of kept at them. I felt so stupid that I allowed my lack of preparation to be somewhere on time get in the way of me being nice. Arghhhhhh!

So ladies at FM - I apologize!
