Encountering The Bee In Your Bonnet Person

    Encountered The Bee In Your Bonnet Person

These are the just "naturally" crabby people. The Lucy character in Peanuts. The Maxine lady of cartoon fame. They can find you nearly anywhere. In a comment in your blog post. In a reply to a comment on their blog post. In the passenger seat as you drive this buyer around. An Associate REALTOR on the other end of the phone. An email communication from someone that takes you by surprise with THIS part of their personality showing. We all have our off days, but the "bee in your bonnet person" is having an especially grouchy moment. One thing I know is THEY are right and you are wrong, at least for this moment. Don't even try to reason with them.

I think some of it has to do with having a bad day or getting up on the wrong side of the bed or something, but you just have to step back from this massive crabby negativity bent on ruining your day with the venom they spew. I cut people some slack in this area on an "occasion" but if they are the persistent bee in your bonnet person I cut them loose. I have concluded very clearly it is THEM not me with the problem.

Life is too short to hang closely with these what only can be called bitter people.

When I was young, I always said I wanted to grow up to be crotchedy.  Maybe not so much now!  Now that I could actually be....

Gary we can laugh at Maxine because she is brutally honest and we don't have to live with her LOL

Gary, It's so hard to know what someone else's life has been like, as we've never walked in their shoes. Some just take it in stride and live life to the fullest.  Others wear it as a chip on their shoulder. It's a choice that each individual must make for themselves.

I love this. Haven't been around some "bee in my bonnet" people for a few months and am amazed at the positive change in my demeanor!

You know I have some little kids in my home, Gary, right? Well, one day they were watching Sesame Street. My daughter loves the Grouch character. Every time he comes on, she just laughs. One day, I asked, "why is he so grouchy??" She replied, "He's happy when he's grouchy!"  Truer words have never been spoken, huh?  That from a 6 year old.  Some people are just happy being grouchy.  But like those who have replied here before me, I just don't have time for grouchy in my life. When the kids are grouchy, I make them have alone time - in a separate part of the house so that everyone else isn't affected by their attitude. It makes things so much easier.  Too bad we can't just put all the grouchy people in our lives on time out!
