Okay, today's question is: Have You Ever Met Anyone Who Didn't Like You And You Never Knew Why?
Here's My Answer...
I have witnessed the cold shoulder plenty of times throughout my lifetime. The first time I was a little girl. I wasn't picked on, but for some reason the girls who were...I guess you could say the leader of the pack, who we now refer to as "the mean girls" thank-goodness, because the public is more aware of bullying now, than they were when I was in school.
What's weird is that I was sort of popular, well, among my own crowd. But there was this one girl that picked on me since I was in the second grade, as well as, High School. She wanted to be friends with me in High School because she wanted to be in my crowd.
Anyway, this girl started teasing me the first day of middle school, which was bad enough, but then the bus driver made her the "Bus monitor."a tactic used to keep the rest of us common people in line. In any event, from the first day I started Junior high school until the end of the year, when I got on the bus, she would say,
"Oh, miss Anna Belle, Miss Anna Belle, she thinks shes so pretty, look at her, you think you're pretty, don't you?" Then, she'd put her face real close to mine and say;
" You think you're Miss America, don't you, but you're just a snob."
As you can tell, it wasn't a compliment, especially on the first day of Junior High School, when few people know you...but, finally the bus driver heard her and she lost her "Bus Monitor" job, much to my relief.
I haven't thought about that experience in years, if ever, but I have to say we became good friends later, although I haven't spoken to her in a long time.
There was another girl in elementary school that I became good friends later. She was having a bad day one day, so she told me to eat dirt or she said she would beat me up. I'm not sure which situation was worse, I guess the school bus rides.
Although, sometimes I still get the cold shoulder, when people do not know me, and I've never understood why?
This week, I went with a friend to see her husband in the hospital, and we ran into a mutual friend in one of those gray hospital garages- It seems hospital garages are that gray concrete color from "Sea to Shining Sea."
I think that hospitals should at least paint the garages, but, I guess they can't afford it. Anyway, our mutual friend was pushing this woman who can walk in a wheelchair. I met the lady in the wheelchair before and she was real nice, then the second time I met her, with my two friends, I tried to join the conversation, but she kept interrupting me, as if I were invisible.
In my mind, I make excuses for people when they're rude, because we don't always know what people are dealing with so I told myself she was stressed, and tried to smile and follow their nattering whispers, then like magic, I noticed I was a few feet away from my companions.
My friend rolled her friend in the wheelchair back in the hospital and just when I was beginning to think I was paranoid, by buddy said,
I am still wondering why-
Note: I'm sorry for posting Tuesday's Question so late but, I believe it or not, I have been trying to publish this post since 1:00 pm. My computer needs to go back to the doctor, but I have a few things I have to do before I can bring it.
I guess I can today's title should be, Tuesday/ Wednesday's Question. Thank you for your patience and for visiting, A Nice Place In The Sun. Have a great evening and day tomorrow! :)
