You can't blame me..!

I can be quite mean sometimes, in a subtle and satisfying way.
This morning some itsy-bitsy little blonde chick pushed past me to stand in front of me in the aisle on the train, and proceeded to consume what, up till that point, was performing perfectly well as
my space and air. Oh she with her perfect hairdo and cute little button nose.... PFFT!!
So finally two stops before mine, I got a seat... and guess who came and took the seat next to me? Yep, li'll Miss Perfect.
So I couldn't help myself - I waited until she'd just finished opening her magazine and then I stood up so she had to move to let me out.
I know I shouldn't have enjoyed her irritation as much as I did. I'm a nice person... most of the time. Perhaps this week is not one of those times. Irritation levels are up, compassion levels are down.
I blame Eve. If the silly cow hadn't taken a bit of that apple, us women wouldn't have these violent hormones to contend with, would we now?!

Don't look for excuses - you should enjoy the feeling: it doesn't happen that often, does it...

LOL You should have snatched her magazine on your way past, Terri.

See, I knew fruit was bad for you! And apparently bad for Lil Miss Perfect! ;)

I echo Nomad!!!!! You should have accidentally stepped on her perfect shoes and perfect toes on your way past!!!!!

buddess said...

or come to think of it, it wouldn't have been very annoying to her if you read the magazine over her shoulder....and when she turns the page tell her you're not finished reading yet....

Eve? Nah, I blame that sneaky, slimely, ssssssso and so snake. Stomp on his friggin head if I could!

Ignorant people and trains...you can't have one without the other. Good for you for giving her some of her own medicine!

anne - I'm afraid if I always behaved the way I feel like behaving towards other people, the world would've locked me away in a padded cell years ago.

nomad - Oh dear, that means I'll have to do more mean things... damn shame eh?!

jeff - Ah but you see it's all about being subtle so the victim can't really call you in it ;)

livewire - You betcha. And don't even get me started on the evils of avocados..!

buddess - The trouble with getting one's feet involved is that one is a bit of a klutz herself and things could have gone horribly wrong, lol!

spookie - The snake? I forgot about the snake. Wait, was the snake a HE??? A-Ha! I knew I could find a way to blame a man for this mwahahahaha!

jason - Oh yeah, I'm standing up for helpless commuters everywhere ;)

i reckon we're allowed the occasional bitchy i-wanna-irritate-you-back moment!

Dawn said...

Sometimes Bitchy rocks - especially when you don't have to reduce yourself to swearing in some stupid little cows face! xox

kyknoord said...

I'm sure she just she wanted to be chums with you. Another dream shattered. So sad...

Terri said...

Angel - couldn't agree more. Otherwise we might be in serious danger of popping.

Dawn - it's a class thing, isn't it, Dahling?!

Kyknoord - always the champion of the underdog, eh?
