Fed Up With People At Times

Try dealing with the IRS. Talk about rude! If you want to talk to them, you have to fill out a form to schedule time. They will not answer the phone and good luck getting into your account online! These are some of the rudest, untrained people I’ve ever dealt with and they are never wrong!
Talking about IRS do you reckon those IRS agents will be clenched since the Repubs are in there. I want to see the Repubs go after Biden and Son over the China investigations, and Rand Paul wants to go after Fauci for the virus mess, and we know Fauci also lied about the gain of function. Biden, his son, and Fauci are all cut from the same dirty cloth. Dirty rotten low down scoundrels.

When grocery shopping, I’ve been increasingly noticing the rude responses I get when I very politely ask an elderly person if I can get past them in an aisle. They’re the ones blocking the entire aisle with their carts, but when I very nicely ask to get past them, I get dirty looks…:rolleyes:

Yes, have experienced this. Followed an elderly woman into the grocery store, where she stops dead in front of me. I patiently wait, and when she starts to go left, I start to go around on the right. Until she abruptly switches to the right, so I back up a little and start to go left. Guess what? Yep, she changed again and I just decided to go around without any more waiting.

A few seconds later I hear her saying how impatient some people are and always in a hurry.

I didn't say anything, but I did turn around and just look at her for a few seconds. In stunned silence.

This morning I was crossing a busy road, and while my side of the road was clear, I saw a Jeep headed my way on the other side. He was still far enough away and had plenty of time to slow down to allow me to cross. But as I crossed and reached the opposite sidewalk, he leaned on his horn for several seconds. Totally uncalled for and obnoxious…:mad:

I just had to vent a little. I could keep going, but I’ll leave it at that…:nope

No wonder I love animals so much…:confused:

I never trust anyone on the road. I have seen people blow through stop signs and never slow down. One co-worker talked about how he likes to watch videos on his smart phone while driving home. Just something I felt like sharing and I would not depend on people slowing down for you in time because they maybe distracted.

I've been finding my tolerance for certain types of people just growing less and less over time. Inconsiderate, rude, and the perpetual victims are the most frustrating to me.

I'm also getting tired of listening to people's problems day in and day out as a counselor. It's just draining and frustrating when much of it is self-induced. The level of patience needed is feeling more Herculean as the years go by.

I spent a number of years in your field, and for the reasons you mentioned, I decided that teaching part time at a college was a better fit for me. After I was saved, however, I no longer wanted to be employed at a secular school and transitioned to Christian college setting. Such a relief! I loved teaching the students who were planning to become pastors, missionaries, or teachers. This was my cup of tea. I taught two mornings a week. Loved it!

Thank you for being a counselor. It must be really difficult at times. But I’m sure a lot of people have been blessed by what you do.

That sounds like a breath of fresh air. Wow! That would be amazing and I'm so glad you were able to do something energizing and not so draining.

I always pray I can be. I hate complaining because it is an honor to serve the Lord in this way. I just want to focus on my children now.
Cheeky, even though I left the profession of counseling, I still meet with younger women individually as a sister in Christ to disciple them. I am meeting a younger woman on Monday at a coffee Cafe for this very purpose. She's also a member of the group I meet with regularly for the same purpose. I just think it's good to have some one-on-one time with them occasionally, too.

I can definitely do that here and there as friends. That's much better than having to worry about abandoning a client since I have to meet them on a regular basis and uphold the licensing board ethics. At least with a friend, I don't have to be beholden by some standard and face a lawsuit. I can see them when I can and when I have time.

I have a friend who we chit chat and we support each other as we need. No strings attached and it's not just one sided as it is with a professional client.

I had an annoying encounter with neighbors at the apartment complex pool. I took Peter, Saturday afternoon, and I see this gay couple I'm the pool blasting some party club music. I instantly felt so furious. There is a huge board next to the pool with the pool rules, no loud music is listed on there.

I got right in the pool with Peter and just said "Excuse would please turn that music off." They both looked stunned. I told them it's inappropriate. The white guy gave me some snarky response saying "It's Beyonce, you'll have to take it up with her" but the black guy looked at me and said "Ok I'll be respectful and he turned it off." I just said Thank you and enjoyed the pool, chit chatting with another older couple.

I was ready to go off on them but thankfully I had prayed on my way to the pool. I was still seething at the audacity and lack of consideration for everyone at the pool. There was another older couple that left shortly after we got there. Not everyone wants to listen to your music?! I can't stand these kinds of people.

I plan on talking to the front office to ask what their procedures are if there are people that refuse to shut their music off. Even if I didn't have my son, I don't go to the pool to listen to anyone's crappy play list.

I just kept thinking that next time I'll go with my shower speaker. I'll put on a Sermon and blast it. Hopefully that gay couple will always have their music off when I'm there and others, but I doubt others will be that confrontational. This is the second time I've seen them with their crappy music on. I didn't use the pool the last time and they were on their way leaving.
 
People who don't believe in God, living in the quarrel excusable,But we're different.

God's kingdom is Peace of mind. If your mind lives in strife, do you know what you should do?

Pray for the kingdom of God to come upon you.

I actually have a minor positive interaction from today to brag about to kind of remind everyone that some people can be kind.

I went to the Post Office today (I know, I should have posted in the prayer request section prior) to buy some stamps. I was going to simply use the machine and was waiting for someone to finish who was currently using it.

At first it wasn’t clear where to stand to wait so I stepped to the right and waited for a few seconds. I then looked over and saw a section to the left of th machine where you could wait and be out of the way.

By this time there was a lady waiting there so I went behind her to make sure I wasn’t cutting in front of her. She said “Oh, you were here first” and get me get in front of her. I thanked her and said I was only buying stamps and that it would only take me a minute and I’d be done. I quickly made my purchase and got out of her way.

It’s a minor interaction but it was a positive one. I think we tend to remember the bad without taking the time to focus on the good interactions we experience. I just wanted to mention this as a reminder that not everyone out there in the world is rude.
