I work with a woman who presses all of my buttons all of the time. She talks over everyone who talks to her. I was talking to a customer this morning & she butted in talking about something totally unconnected. I struggle with self absorbed people & she’s so self absorbed it infuriates me. I try to ignore her rudeness but sometimes I want to point out to her her totally obnoxious she is. Of course I won’t because that’s just who she is & I wouldn’t want to hurt her.
I did have a fun moment when in walked Grant today. He used to come in every week & I loved talking to him. During a conversation he realised that I was a Catholic & he got weird. He tore all faiths to shreds & stopped short of calling me an idiot. I haven’t seen him for weeks. He came in when I was off shift & whereas before he’d ask how I was he stopped doing that. He didn’t see me until it was to late this morning, he was committed to coming into our shop. I greeted him with his usual ‘hi you’ and a smirk. I still like Grant, He has a twinkle in his eye & he’s interesting. I don’t judge people & I certainly don’t take anything said about faith personally. He obviously felt uncomfortable & his avoidance of my shop when I’m on shift made that obvious but I treated him as I always do. I hope we can get back to the way we were but I seriously doubt it. He’s missing out on great conversations as am I but I’m sure we’ll both get over it. It’s a sad reflection of the world we live in. We judge & condemn people because we don’t agree or understand there beliefs. Shaking my head in total confusion.
