I've been in bitch mode supreme for the last few days (ok maybe more than a few days but do you really want to split hairs with me right now?).
Anyways, I made 2 boys nearly cry when they were trying to be cute. Now I was just being bluntly honest, but usually I have some small amount of tact (for a certain semi-regular commenter here who I know very well and have lost all patience with that does not apply).
But to clear my name of overusing bitchiness- I give you transcripts of conversations one and two:
One: (From a boy who I went out with a few times but haven't talked to in months)
Him: Why don't we talk anymore
Me: Because you are flaky and unreliable
Me: Truth hurts. For future reference, dating means making plans and following through on them, endless text messages are just a waste of time.
Two: (From a boy I might have gone out with if he hadn't started with the passive aggressive never let a girl get to sure of herself crap)
Him: You're interesting and kinda pretty
Me: Kinda pretty? Kinda pretty? What kind of backhanded compliment is that? The only girl who would be cool with a compliment like that would have the self esteem of a Jerry Springer guest. No one wants to date someone who only thinks they're "kinda pretty".
Him: Actually I thought you were pretty cute but I didn't want to give you 2 compliments in a row.
WTF? The devil used to think (seriously) that the way to keep a girl was to pull the "don't let them think they could do better than you" shit, insult them more than you compliment them. It doesn't work on me, I have my giant ego to protect me. However, this kind of behavior, the backhanded compliment thing seems to be way more common than one would think. The devil was just the first person to point out to me that is was conscious and not unconscious behavior.
I also sent a nasty letter to the owner of my local grocery store after a clerk shorted me $40 bucks and the assistant manager was being a giant slack-ass. I wrote that I do not do business with companies that 1) have horrible customer service, and 2) steal from their customers. I also tallied up the amount of money I have spent at this particular store in the 3+ years I've lived in this neighborhood (over $14000, by the way) and told them that every one of those dollars would be going to their much swankier competitor 2 miles away. I not only got my $40 bucks back but I also got a gift card and several apologies from the owner.
So if you need a bitch to do some dirty work- I'm for hire. It could be a win-win-lose situation (I win, you win, object de bitchitude loses).
Besides, I work cheap. I work for free if I get to bitch out the torturer in chief and head monkey- President George W Dingleberry.
