How rude....

“A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person”

I come to realize that we are all surrounded with rude people. However, the ways you come to socialize with them reflect the outcome you’re going to have with those people. Sometimes it’s worth working on getting on a person’s good side. But there are some people that are just too weird. By weird, I mean that do the craziest things that you just don’t want to be on their good side. But it’s better to get along with people that being on their bad side. So we should all just try. If it works…. It works.


How to Deal with Rude People:

Don’t take it personally. Perhaps the offender is having a bad day.

Size up your annoyances. Is it worth it to make a fuss over something small, or is it a waste of your emotional time?

Set a good example. Rudeness begets rudeness. If you speak sharply to the bank teller, don’t be surprised if you get the same treatment in return.

Count to ten. When someone’s behavior makes you angry, take a few deep breaths and ask yourself, “Is it really worth blowing my stack over this?”

Laugh it off. If you can’t come up with a friendly joke, just chuckle and change the subject.

Let’s say someone cuts in front of you while you’re in line. Say something like "Excuse me, I was here before you." Some people just like to see how much they can get away with, so if you call them on their behavior, they're likely to retreat. You can also politely ask “Why are you cutting in line?” The person may be embarrassed enough to step away.

You want to ask a question at the doctor’s office, but the nurse keeps giving you the brush-off. We all know how hard nurses work. So sometimes they’re just swamped. You also deserve to have your questions answered. So try this: Figure out the nurse’s name. Then say, “Excuse me Joan – or Bill, or whatever their name is. I know you’re busy, but when you have a moment, I could really use some help.” People are more likely to go the extra mile for folks who call them by name because it creates a bond and makes the person feel closer to you – like you’re friends. Acknowledging the fact that they’re busy shows that you sympathize with their situation – which makes you seem friendly.

A salesclerk won’t help you. If you’ve made several attempts to flag them down, and they STILL won’t talk to you, politely say “If you can’t help me, I would like to speak to a manager.” This’ll usually motivate the clerk, because they don’t want to get the boss involved. Remember to SMILE while you’re talking to them – that lets the salesclerk know that you’re not aggressive or looking for a fight.

Sickness took over my weekend. Worst part about it, it was my Halloween weekend. That was wrong in so many ways.

But you guys know me; I had to turn a negative into a positive. After taking my boys trick or treating, we got home, check the candy. Then we talked about the scary things we saw, bought and eat the best tacos ever then we watched the scary shows on Nick. I had plan on going out but this is when I was starting to get sick.

Sunday, I was sick in bed so my brother, my boys and I watched scary movies all day long. We watched the Orphan, The Omen, and The Messenger. For Breakfast we did have homemade eggs but for lunch and dinner it was sandwiches and takeout. Dinner we had BBQ from Ohana Hawaiian food. MMMMMMM!

So I’m back at work but still sick, it’s okay though being here gives me more energy to get stuff done. I also need to type my homework. This was another up and down week.

Down-Got sick
Up- Watched movies w/ family.
Down- Had to use a vacation day, which I was saving for December

Down- my charger for my laptop stopped working
Up- met a real cute guy that recommended solutions
Down- Spot that went to was too expensive

Down- Have not bought my charger
Up- Got the cute guys number
Down- I'm sure I'm not gonna call him, felt ugly that day.

Up- Found some energy yesterday, and type up my
Homework assignment on my desktop at home
Down- Try to print out my assignment at work but, wouldn’t open my Microsoft 2007 format
Down- Had to type it over.

Down- Didn’t take any cute pictures this weekend
Up- Called Best Buy and my camera will be ready on Wednesday.
