Sometimes I'm just not going to be nice

If you've read this blog for more than a minute, you know that I'm mean sometimes. I don't think life is conducive to sitting in a circle, holding hands, and singing Kumbayah every day. Sometimes it's just my reaction that's not nice, sometimes my mood is not nice, and other times I have to put someone on blast. Given past behavior, I can tell when I'm not going to be very nice, in circumstances such as...

-If I've gotten less than four hours of sleep the night before. Jesus could ask me to have a picnic lunch the next day and I'd refuse in a not nice way.

-If I'm late to something because MFD was not ready. The man thinks it takes him 20 minutes to get ready and it takes him 40. That hair doesn't get that way by itself.

-If I have to repeat things to you, or if you constantly repeat things to me. I fucking hate repeating.

-If you're a smug asshole.

-If you butt in front of me in line or if you stand too close to me while I'm in line.

-If my house is chaotic or messy. I don't exist well like that, and until I set it to rights, nice has left the building.

-If you're whining.

-If you've asked me a question that is none of your business and we're not close enough for you to ask me that question. Not your business. Not going to be nice about it when I reply.

-If  you abuse apostrophes. Knock knock, open up, it's the mean girl English language police.

-If you have hurt or taken advantage of someone I love.

-If I'm hangry.

Someone who's usually nicer than me? My brother Stephen, who turns 31 today. Happy birthday Stephen!

When are you not nice?

  2. When I don't get a lot of sleep I am a grumpy girl! Usually when stuck in traffic I will not be nice. Happy Birthday to your brother Stephen!

  3. Agree. Agree. Agree. Except, Steve doesn't take that long to get ready. Clearly, the Mayor always has to look his best!

  5. another reason why you and i are bosom buddies. the repeating; oh the repeating -- please make it stop. either listen up the first time or you'll miss out. repeating shit is annoying as hell and it'll only get "oh for fucks sake! listen already!!". don't even get me started on hangry. my husband knows to always be steering me towards a source of food if we've been out most of the day or he will face the wrath LOL

    thanks for linking up!

  6. Ahhh the hangries. My husband used to not believe that they were real and we went without feeding me too many times and he finally got it. I'm not nice after a boring day at work or while sitting in traffic. I'm not mad when I'm trying to do something and I'm tightly wound and my dad calls because he talks slowwwwly and takes twenty minutes to get to the point. And I'm not all that nice when I'm in the middle of something at work and people ask twenty million dumbass questions that are irrelevant to what I'm working on. Wow, this is like 50% of my life. I need to calm down!

    1. Ugh he not we. I can feed myself but when we were dating and he had no food at his house and we had to go somewhere to eat, he would take forever to get there. Had to correct that lest you think I can't eat crackers without supervision or something!

  10. Lmfao hangry!! We're so alike - I'm the same - I'm called a 'B' all damn day and I love it, I take that title with pride. Sometimes ish just has to get done and I like getting things done, and to places, ON TIME! I hate, hate, hate repetition - HATE IT. For as long as I could remember, I have a 3 strike repetition policy, whether all at once or at various times, if I have to tell you something a third time I hope you wrote it down because it will never come out again. I don't like ish repeated to me either because believe me, if it's important, I will write it down. My bf is works in slow motion and I'm a hyper-speed bunny so sometimes we butt heads about his timeliness, or lack there of. A man should never rush a woman but the reverse is true. :) Happy Hump Day Stephanie! -Iva

  11. Being the DalaiMomma, I should be really nice all the time. I agree with your list. Do not EVER hurt any of my chickens or I will become a Lioness! I do realize when I say something that is not nice and I say to whoever I am with, I know that is a little not nice. My personality is that of a keep the peace person at all costs. I do not like commotion, but there are times when I am a little not nice. Lovely blog as always. Enjoy this stunning weather. My favorite time of the year. Love you to infinity and beyond. YOUR momma

  12. I'm not nice with all traffic related things....don't cut me off, don't pull out of a side street that you've been sitting on for 30 seconds after I've been sitting in the traffic line for 20 minutes....stop freaking texting and pay attention to the fact that all of the cars in all of the lanes in front of you have already made it thru the light and you're still sitting at a dead stop and I have to sit thru the light AGAIN because I'm stuck behind a dumbass!!! Perhaps I should just hire a driver....LOL.

  13. I am with you repeating things, there are actually days (every day) where I have to watch my temper with Little K because she's at the repeat stage and it drives me nuts.

    I also am not nice when I have to drive with tourists, when someone wakes me up if I didn't have to get up, and when I have to travel but don't really want too.

  14. When I'm hangry, of course, which my husband has finally caught on to. When someone is picking on my kids or my pets. When people change plans on me at the last minute. When it comes to myself, I can do last minute. When it comes to outings or things with other people? Nope nope nope. Flexible is not part of my vocabulary.

  15. yes to all of these. i get really cranky when i'm hungry, or sleepy, or anything really. and i hate hate hate when people stand too close to me. i will purposefully stand back into you, and when you get mad, i'll say 'huh, why are you SO EFFING CLOSE TO ME?'

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm the same way with the house being out of order. I will seriously come home from work and freak out. Everyone will get yelled at (including the animals) and I will go into a fury righting everything. Then I'm fine. Of course I'm the same way when I'm hangry too.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm with ya on most of these. not enough sleep is probably my worst one. that or being hangry.

    happy birthday brother!

  18. Apostrophe abuse is an epidemic that sends me into a blind rage. It must be stopped.

    I get not so nice when I'm hangry, tired, or I'm trapped somewhere with people I can't stand and I can't hide my contempt for them. Also with stupid people. I can handle a little disorganization but there comes a point where if it doesn't get cleaned, I freak out.

    ReplyDelete
  19. LOL! I get weirdly hyper when I haven't had sleep and actually think I can be more fun that way ;) But without food? No way- don't get near me! I can't stand people that stand SO CLOSE TO ME in line... I inch up and they literally inch up again, wtf?!

  20. Repeating and hanger are my huge hot buttons. I can't stand it. Also when people touch my stuff. If we're close or cool, it's different. Otherwise, back the F up.

  21. I'm not nice if I am awakened before my alarm clock goes off, even if its by a minute.
    If Im hungry. If I am waiting on someone that is running late. If something takes too long.
    I kinda lose my cool more often than not.

  22. Ugh, apostrophes!!! I have a friend who repeats EVERYTHING and they aren't just her own stories. It's stuff we've both seen on FB of other friends too. I always say, "Oh yeah, you told me," or "Yep, I saw that," but she continues to go on with the long, drawn out story. That's another thing I can't stand. Pick up your pace! I'm a fast talker and I hate meaningless descriptions when someone tells a story.

  23. I like to say I'm basically like a toddler, too little sleep or I'm hungry=cranky. Aww...that was sweet of you to call out your brother as being nicer :) See you aren't all mean ;) P is good about getting ready but vastly under estimates time for other tasks, for example kegging beer...he once said 20 minutes...I'm like what planet do you live on (the actual time b/c I timed it...yeah I'm not wife...1 hour and 30 minutes :)

  24. I use ellipses entirely too much... it is starting to become a huge problem... I hate myself for it...

  25. It's taken 5 years but my husband has FINALLY learned to overestimate when he says how long it's going to take him to do something. "I'll be ready in 5 minutes", "I have to run into work but it'll only take 20 minutes", "Going to move a couch with my brother, it should only take 15 minutes"....now he adds at LEAST 30 minutes to every activity, and usually he's still a bit short but at least I don't get annoyed when he's always "late".

    Bad grammar. HUGE pet peeve. I just can't believe people are still mixing up your/you're.

  26. OOhhh hangry gets me every time! I will straight up tear a B UP lolol!!

  27. "That hair doesn't get that way by itself." LOL hilarious!

    I am not nice if you don't feed me. Hanger is real bitches!

    Also, don't say anything bad about my dogs or someone I love.

    Oh and certainly do not do stupid shit in the car. My road rage runs deep!

  28. We are all like this every now again...we all have pet peeves and things that piss us off...it's part of being human...not mean...I just tell myself to breathe...expect when I am hangry!! :)

  29. My husband only takes 5-10 minutes to get ready (15 if he's ironing a shirt) but he always waits until I am completely done and we have to leave NOW. Why do men do this to us?!

  30. I'm not nice when patients show up an hour late with McDonalds cups and to go food......it's not a pretty situation from there

  31. During Cranky Week! Which it is currently, and which has nothing to do with the crimon tide. I just wrote a post about how Cranky Jenn sees the world completely differently, in a not-so-nice way.

    Also, right on with having to wait on the significant other (who procrastinates and then takes longer than I do), the house being messy, and being sleep deprived! Those things combined are deadly.

  32. John's lateness is a constant battle against my serenity. He says 4, but I well know that means 5. I can live with it. But HE cannot accept the fact that it means 5, so he insists I be ready/waiting wherever I'm supposed to be at 4. Which of course I am, because I'm the timeliness queen.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Does MFD take longer than you to get ready or does he just underestimate his timing? J takes longer than me to get ready and I just don't understand. How is a 20 minute shower possible every day?

  34. HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEPHEN! :)
    I. Fucking. HATE repeating myself. I turn into a mega bitch if I have to say something more than twice. And I swear to you, Pete is deaf so I have to repeat shit all the damn time!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I am very guilty of being hangry. I am not nice to people who, when surprised to find out my age (I look younger than I am, I know), feel the need to TELL me about how young I look. I do not respond kindly to being told I look like I'm in high school.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Happy Birthday, Stephen!
    Steph, sometimes I think we were separated at birth. When I see your post title, and think about how I would answer, you nail it. Every. Time. Thank you, again, for the out loud laughs. Genius!

    ReplyDelete
  37. First of all, happy birthday to your brother.
    Second of all, all of those things make me crabby/mean too.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm not nice when people write your welcome. It's lazy. Were they asleep for third grade or what?

    I'm also cranky with little sleep. Or when people try to talk to me too soon after I've just woken up.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I am basically nice. PMS is the exception to that rule.

  40. I totally had a messy-house freak-out last weekend... it was not pretty. I've started getting better about straightening up each evening, though (I look at your "daily dos" post more than I'd like to admit) and I actually find myself quoting you under my breath: "set the house to rights"! Thanks for helping me be a little more sane!

  41. When I'm hangry, for about 2 days a month when flow is in town, when I'm feeling hurt, when I'm hot, when you waste my time, when you let your kids climb on the booth on a booth in a restaurant and they touch me or when you let them kick the back of my seat on an airplane. I'm sure there's more, but that's all I can think of for today :).
