The One Where I Go On A Tirade

Maybe it's because I'm not caught up on my sleep yet. Maybe it's because I re-injured my foot and it hurts like the dickens. Maybe it's because it's raining ice cubes outside and I'm trapped in the house with with a girl that has the lung capacity of an opera singer. Or maybe, just MAYBE, it's because people are stupid.

I firmly believe there are two types of people in this world. Drama Queens, and Not-Drama Queens.

As fate would have it, I fall into that second category. The one that doesn't give a damn about petty drama. The one that watches it unfold before my eyes and heaves a collective sigh because I know that no matter what I do, including sitting back and doing nothing, it will be WRONG and HORRID and MEAN-SPIRITED. And then the other party will play the "Woe is Me" card and all their drama driven friends will fawn over them and tell them how wrong I am and how right they are and it's your classic martyr move all over again.

The thing that drives me the craziest, is that it's all make believe. In their sad little head, there's a whole sordid tale about how I wronged them. Plain and simple, it's DRAMA.

Someone was in a pissy mood and looking for a scapegoat and I happened to be there.

IT. DRIVES. ME. CRAZY.

And you can be sure that this person would never in a million years say anything to my face. No, they go about telling their stories and since I don't engage, then they must be telling the truth. It's infuriating.

So unfriend me, unfollow me, unsubscribe.... I don't give a rats behind. This is MY blog and I will do with it as I please.

  3. I totally understand. I work with a lot of drama queens (comes from being in a majority-female occupation) and it drives me crazy. I'm to the point where I just smile and say to them, "You can't be a martyr unless you're dead." Mean? Probably. Do I care? Not really.

  15. I'm happy to say that I have no idea as to the specifics of that you're talking about.
    But yes, in general, I don't hang out with drama queens. They just suck the energy out of ya.

    Sorry about your weekend. :(

  16. Doesn't it seem like this comes in cycles? Like everywhere you go there will be at least one drama queen, and somehow or other you are unfortunate enough to cross their path?? Do you think the universe is trying to teach this person something by throwing them in your path, but they keep missing the point?

    And don't you love how drama queens can rally every stinking person that you thought was your friend around *themself*. Crazy!

    Sorry this is happening to you. I still think you are great!

  17. OH....I know exactly how you feel. I have to be nice to the Drama Queen in my life cause she's my co-worker and the bosses think she's just wonderful.....cause they don't have to work with her!

  18. Wow! I don't think you would do well at my job. I get drama all the time that is totally made up in their heads.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Excellent rant! I avoid drama as much as I can. It sucks the life out of you.

    ReplyDelete
  20. So sorry. You need a pre-teen in your life. They put drama on a whole new scale.

    I know.

    (I promise I won't un-friend you. Even though I've never met you. You're kind of fun. Even when you're mad.)

  21. There is always some form of drama going on in my fam so I feel your pain. Drama is annoying, and so unnecessary. Amen!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Drama queens = Stupid people.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Aw, that's lousy. You perfectly described it, though...drama queens seek validation and pity and blow everything out of proportion.

    I completely and totally burst out laughing when I read how you are, "trapped in the house with a girl that has the lung capacity of an opera singer." I'm sorry that I laughed at your predicament. I'm not a good friend.

  24. Give 'em the finger and tell them to shut their "pie holes." JUST JOKING! I would NEVER do that. As you can see I am so not into drama. I do despise how people can be mean and demeaning to others. Oh well, I am the Compassionate Service Leader in my Ward, so I have to behave. Did you read my latest post or something?
