So ok WOW. REALLY?
I meet someone for the first time after talking to her online. The reason we started talking really has nothing to do with anything but she was looking for a ride. We spoke via Facebook messenger, for about an hour. I went to her profile to check it out. She seems nice enough.
She goes to my profile, sends me a friend request, goes to my business page, looks over it and tells me we have OH SO MUCH IN COMON. Looks through my photos, my posts, reads my intro., etc …
Then she starts telling me what I should do with my page, what I should post, how I should post, etc …. Mind you we are in the same business. We have had different training. I do my thing and she does hers. We do this differently.
So after all this messaging back and forth I decided I would be nice and give her a ride to the conference we were attending. She is not far from me so I thought we could meet in a public area. Hey! I don’t know her from Joe Blow. So we meet at a gas station. She leaves her car and we head to the conference.
We weren’t in the car but 5 minutes an she says to me “You’re not a small as I thought you were. You’re not as small as your picture” :: mind blown :: I’m sorry but WTF?? REALLY? Did those words just come out of your mouth?! She is VERY forward and blunt.
I ignored it but still. Was I hurt? Hell yeah. Was I taken back? Fuck yeah. Like really? Not like I don’t already know I have some weight to lose and that I have to get back to working out but REALLY lady? I just met you …. LITERALLY!!! Not even 10 minutes ago.
I could have said something but why bother? I would only just irritate myself more and if I kept going I might have pushed her out the door. I do let things fester. I do hold grudges. I did let it go though. I figured we weren’t going to be best of friends nor would I see her on daily basis so I thought I might as well just drop it. So I just let her talk and talk she did. WHOA!! Talk and talk and talk and talk …. HOLY Guacamole.
And all she really talked about were all these people. People I have never heard of before and she was SHOCKED to say the least. I mean we do not run in the same circles. I asked her questions about these people and she couldn’t answer them. The questions would have helped me figure out who these people were. I think it had to do with who were “run” with. And how she emailed specific people and got responses. How much she weighs and wants to weigh more. No she does not have an ED.
I may be blowing this WAY our of proportion but I am not the type of person who is comfortable with this type of person. I do not take criticism well. I am trying to change that. I am trying not to jump down peoples throat for it or get short with them. Trying to change. How would you have handled it? Ignored it? Said something?
:: THIS IS WHY I LIKE MY LITTLE BUBBLE ::
I know I am rambling and just talking in circles but I wanted to vent and this really is the only place to do it. So I apologize if I have offended anyone. 😦
Now I am off to do some work.
