Tired of Being Tired of Everything, or Why Do I have to be the Good Guy?

Do you ever just reach the point where you just can't take it anymore? You are tired of being tired of everything? You just don't want to be the good guy anymore? You just need to yell and complain and have people understand that you just don't care about their quirks, needs, egos, and petty little problems anymore? Welcome to exactly how I am feeling at this moment.

Things I am Tired of at this Very Moment (not that I think you should care, because you shouldn't. if i did expect you to care i would be a complete hypocrite. but this is my blog and well, quite frankly, if i can't vent it out here, where can i vent it out? my blog, my world. get over it.)
1. Tiptoe-ing (my blog, my spelling) around egos. Get over it and just let people do their jobs.
2. Girls with massive jealousy issues. Guess what girls?! Sometimes ex-boyfriends are just that! EX-boyfriends. You can be friends. It is possible. (maybe I should clarify this one- girls- it is possible for some of us to be friends, and just friends, with our ex-boyfriends. it does not mean we are out to jeopardize the chance you may think you have with him. get over it.)
3. I am most tired of playing the good girl. Being the nice one. Being the one that gets dumped on, pushed around, and expected to do everything because other people have issues that preclude them from being a decent human being. I'm just tired of being the "girl who can."
4. Understanding. Compassion. Etc.
5. Hangnails.
6. Men with seriously complicated egos. (this would be an entirely seperate issue from #1)
7. Expectations. I need a little room for failure. Please lower your expectations. I need to just be me for a while.
8. Having a butt big enough that my past can come back and bite it. I accept that I have no choice in having a past. I just wish it would stop biting me in the butt.
9. The fever and headache and sore throat I have had for 6 days now.
10. Being nice to people that drive me up the wall.
11. Zealots or the overly pious people who read my column and think I actually care about their holier than thou responses.

Speaking of that little column I write and holier than thou zealots who expect me to care about their responses... If you jump on over to the column (see link on left) this week you will notice I rant about the "guys on the list." You will also notice that my comments about them don't match up with what I have said on this blog. The blog is true, the column has a lot of filler. Get over it. The part that annoys me this week [regarding the zealots] is what people have said in response to the comments we ran this week. The comments section were contributions from other readers and friends (and who are we kidding- most of those people are reading this blog now). But nearly all of the zealots who have responded this week have accused me of having those thoughts. (not that i disagree with them) But its the fact that the zealots are well, zealots and pious and snotty and rude and apparently can't figure out what humor is.

That's enough for one night. Give me some space people because I am about ready to explode and let you know how I really feel. Oh, and I can't stand it when people say sarcastically, "tell me how you really feel!" after you have just expressed your opinion. Its just annoying. If you don't want me to tell you what I really think about you in 2 seconds, don't say that to me.

And yes, I do know that this is a lot angrier than what most people have ever seen in me. I'm passive aggressive, so sue me. But really, if people can't tell when I have reached my threshold for tolerance and patience its not my fault.

    You're not allowed to be passive aggressive, so I AM going to sue. You'll be hearing from my lawyer first thing Monday. When I'm done suing you, we can sue all the freak shows who didn't like the column this week for emotional distress.

  4. Hi Sweetie

    SO...Stop being so passive aggressive

    When you put one PA with another PA - thats a bad thing !

    Be "sweet aggressive" Call Mr. #1 - invite him for dinner...see what happens

    If it's meant to me it will - if he says no - move on YOU are worth more than that.

    If he says yes - go easy on him ---not all men are as tough on the inside as they seem on the outside

    XOXO

  6. Oh yeah

    And PLEASE save the Mormon comments (thats all you others 'cept Ms Erin) to yourselves--:)

    Erin what you need is a tall cocktail to relax with candles and a hot bath - Alone for starters :)

    You rant way to much and are ranting yourself like a corkscrew down, making yourself sick - It is not bird flu or SARS or anything else you come up with- it's you wearing yourself out - STOP IT

    Life is to short - live, love and get happy...

    please
