Why is it so hard to think of quick comebacks when you need them? I tend to think of something clever to say after the fact. I always thought that I would become more socially adept at handling rude, nosey people, but apparently I have not.

Every office has one-a paper tiger drunk on presumed power who thinks their "stuff don't stink". Said person has a tendency to corner me into conversations. And you know how there's loads of people out there who don't understand personal space-who don't understand that to stand almost on someones toes while you carry on a conversation is RUDE.
Perhaps its because this person is vertically challenged-I don't know, but good grief , step-the-hell-back.

Plus, I do everything I can to avoid quite a few people on the job. I have meticulously constructed my days in such a way that I avoid people. It helps that I start my work day at 6:30 a.m. By the time most of the other folks come to work I'm already tired.

Anywho-this puffed up excuse of a person corners me and trolling for information. Some I gave, most I did not. It was after she asked a question about salaries that I thougth my head was going to start spinning. After I answered her question, the look on her face was, well, like secretly she couldn't believe that people could live on a certain salary. Generally when that happens I take the wind out of the rude persons sails by saying something like, "Why do you ask?" or something like that. I just couldn't think of anything at that time. I think it's because I would never dream of getting in these sorts of conversations with people that I really don't know. People are so nosy, and not in a good way. I wish I could have thought of an appropriate comeback, but I couldn't. It bothered me all day yesterday, and it's still bothering me.

Unfortunately I seem to be the whipping girl for crap like that. Hence, why I stay away from people and have become even more introverted that I already was.

Okay, I'm finished with this.

For some fun check out Franks Vinyl Museum. I keep playing the theme to Mission Impossible and Mrs. Miller's Greatest Hits.

"Discourtesy does not spring merely from one bad quality, but from several--from foolish vanity, from ignorance of what is due to others, from indolence, from stupidity, from distraction of thought, from contempt of others, from jealousy." Jean de la Bruyere
