I have old people manners

I've come to realize that I have old people manners.
You know, the "no-nonsense, I'm not taking sh*t" manners. The "I don't know who you're fooling, but you're not" manners.
The "I'm going to tell it like it is" manners.
How did I age so quickly? I really don't know.
One minute, I'm all nice and polite. The next, I don't have the patience to deal with idiots. Now, I'm not simply talking about being ugly. Because I'm not. I'm simply adopting the "Life is too short to deal with your idiocy" view. You know the manners of which I speak.
And life IS too short.
Why should I have to deal with people who cannot pull their craniums out of their lower orifices? Why should I have to deal with people who can't find their butt with both hands?
Why, I ask you, why? *sigh*
Ignorance is one thing. Blatant stupidity is another.
So, I'll just bip along and enlighten people where I can. The old-fashioned way.

I thought it was teenagers who didn't have the patience to deal with idiots. *lol* Okay, except they don't bother to enlighten you.

My dh is like that. I am so non-confrontational, it is pathetic. I'll explode one of these days.

Hugs, Chrys!

My dh is always telling me I'm too nice. I need to toughen up some. etc.

Yup, life's too short honey, so if the idiots don't like it, then tuff titty! You just can't fix stupid.

You go, girl!!! I used to be fairly easy-going, but the older I get the less inclined I am to deal with stupidity. So I guess I've got old people manners, too. *g*

Old people it! LOL I hate stupid people too. *sigh*

Ha! What a great post! I'm right on your heels. It's getting harder and harder NOT to speak my mind in those instances. ;) My Mother-in-law warned me this day would come.
