A snarky rant

October 2nd, 2016 at 08:45 pm

Life is going pretty well here. DH is recovering although he is impatient and thinks he should be like he was before the surgery. Yeah, at 70, he's doing remarkably well, but Mr. Stubborn doesn't want to hear that. Smile

We went out with a couple this week to celebrate DH's birthday. Most of the time we feel like we are pond scum by the woman. I don't know why. It isn't like she has a reason, but she can be cruel. Anyway, every time we meet with them, she has to go on and on about whatever they did that was a good work. It is like we are being told they are better than us because they donated some canned goods or tithed to their church or whatever it happened to be.

I guess I look at things weird. We do things too, but feel we shouldn't brag about them. I know most of you at SA have helped people out and if you blog about it, it isn't to brag, but to inform such as those loans to the women in third world countries. Most of the people we are friends with do things for other through their church or organizations or individually. It isn't like most people are just self centered wretches.


Anyway, I feel like I can rant safely here because I'm tired of being put down by this person. So thanks for letting me express my feelings.

    Oh I know the type. The humble braggarts. If have been tempted to quote something about my left hand not knowing what my right hand was doing!! Sorry you had to endure that and be in her audience.

    I'm so sorry you had to endure that. It's one thing to share in a way that is sharing and another that is bragging. She clearly hasn't learned humility. You don't have to subject yourself to dinner with her in the future if that is how she always is...in other words it is okay to set boundaries.
