I woke up early, four-thirtyish? Yes. I went outside for a smoke. Last night, we received snow. It was a little slick out there, but I tried to be careful. By the way, in a previous entry I had mentioned about my new neighbor’s falling down. She might be placed in long-term care. A few days ago, I visited the food pantry in the next town over. I received a lot of produce, including cabbage and onions, as well as several other types of produce. I have two bags of egg noodles, so I am going to make Haluski.
Recently, I had an issue with someone, which resulted in having internal conflict. They were constantly inflicting their “immoral” ways on myself. I did not like it. I did not appreciate it. By the same token, I did not know what to do about it. They were always spewing out off-color comments. Finally, one morning I reached the realization that if anyone in the building, staff or otherwise, were to hear the things that this person had been saying to me, what on earth would people think of me for listening to it and putting up with it? It could damage my reputation. I did not want to hear the comments, anyway. I have better values. I explained everything to this person. They actually thought that their comments were humerous, whereas I found them to be totally inappropriate. I confronted this person. If it continues while I am in their presence, I am going to stand up then walk away. They will get the message. I had the same problem with another person in the building, only their comments were beyond “off-color”. They, too have gotten the message that I am not interested in hearing their comments, To me, what they have to say is not humerous, nor do I find it interesting. I am hoping that getting up and walking away will send a clear message of disapproval to these two individuals. If it does not, I am severing all ties.
