I feel like most people can get over silly things much faster than I can.
I’ve been bullied a lot lately. I mean, I work in customer service so I’m actually bullied every day but I can at least come back from it knowing that they don’t know my name, what I look like or really who I am at all.
These have been different.
Two girls at Target yesterday afternoon made fun of what I was wearing. (Which was purple jeans, grey sweatshirt and a dark blue jacket.) It was cold in the morning and I’m outside at 6:30am so I layered but it was warmer in the afternoon. (Which doesn’t mean anything to me ‘cause I’m always cold anyway, thanks ana.) They said, “Jeeze, you know it’s summer out right? Maybe try wearing something brighter and happy?” And they walked away giggling.
So I walked away with my head down playing the Charlie Brown piano tune in my head Arrested Development style.
It also didn’t help that I was looking for a summer dress…only the last 5 stores I went to I looked ugly in everything I put on. Awesome.
Now today I’m getting bullied by some DOUCHE into giving him my co-worker’s cellphone number. For no good reason. Nothing we do here is life or death. For god’s sake, if someone doesn’t get their channel listing for their cable THIS INSTANT they’ll go into cardiac arrest! Not.
Either way, someone trying to find out my name and who I am is not going to push me into giving out someone’s personal information. But it is going to make me feel like complete shit.
I guess you can still get bullied like you’re in high school at 25 years old.
