Warning: Grumpy-End-of-the-School-Year-Teacher-Post ahead
Why are some women (and probably all of us) so stinking MEAN?
I'm sick and tired of women who feel this need to build themselves up by tearing others down. This is the very reason I am so wary around women and why I have very few women I consider a friend. Oh yes, I have many acquaintances and women I am friendly with, but at the end of the day, there are only about 3-4 women I would call in a moments notice and who I completely trust.
I often long for female companionship (Ya Ya style), but I can't STAND the way we treat each other! What is it about us that makes us so competitive? Why do get so stupid and jealous when our friends have great news? Why do we need to feel so important anyway???
A fellow teacher today (on a power trip in front of 30 middle school students--seriously, MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS?! Why does she need THEIR approval??? Get friends your OWN AGE!!!!!!!!!!) blew me out today over a stupid music selection for our 8th grade graduation.
Petty. Stupid. Dumb. Annoying.
What in the heck is her problem?
I'm so glad to get out of this environment.
It's so unhealthy and it's eating my nerves.
I'm so ready to be DONE with this job and move on to bigger and better things.
Note: Seems like Angie is dealing with the very same things. . .makes me feel a little better.
