I have much love for them. Really.

This morning at the bus stop, one of my neighbors excitedly announced that they had finally made all the arrangements. What arrangements you ask. Well, the ones for the Girls Shopping Weekend. The one they didn't invite me to. But that they discussed in detail, down to who was sharing what room in front of me this morning.

Seriously? Who taught these women their manners. If I acted like that, I swear to you, my mother would disown me. (Hi MOM! I know you are reading this....and grumpy and disgruntled as I am, which I got from Dad, you did raise me much better than that!) Really, they make jokes about how young I am, then they act like little high schoolers. And quite frankly, like hell I would have gone. But it is the principle of it. If it would not ostracize Jill and Emmi, I would say something. I have rehearsed it many times in my head. Instead, I stand to the side, and smirk, knowing I am twenty times more mature than they are. And also? As much as I enjoy getting a little jab in here and there, I truly am a good person. This I know without a doubt. People who really know me get this about me. But my neighbors. Not so much.

You are the better person!

Eff them. They're just jealous, and obviously still stuck in that sad High School Clique Drama world.
You should pity them, because as they get older, they will only grow more gray and bitter.

Some people never really graduate past highschool, at least on a mature level. Way to go for holding back, I don't think I would have that much restraint.

Do you ever watch "The old new Christine"? There are 2 ladies that remind me of these ladies.
Effem is right.

I love that show! I have learned that I can not consume liquids while watching that show due to the number of times I have choked with laughter!

I never cease to be amazed at people's rudeness, they're all douches.
David, I effing love that show, I don't watch it often since I don't have cable but J tapes it for me sometimes and I crack up during the whole thing. I know exactly which women you are talking about. Whores!

That kind of stuff happens to me every day up at Princess' school. The moms who are supposed to be my friends sit there and talk about what fun they all had together this weekend and make plans for next. I guess they think that it shouldnt bother me since I have Allie. Well, good. Because Allie is way cooler. Just like you. I would rather hang out with either one of you guys than those biatches. :)

I don't know how you contain a string of profanities when you're around these loons, if for no other reason than for the shock factor. Man, they suck!
