I've got you, Babe

October 23rd 2014 21:00



My wife has gone missing but never mind, I have Rocky to play with during lunch time.

"He's friendly," said my colleague.

"That's because he's a Burmese," I replied.

"I don't know much about cats."

"I do. I have to keep up to date with the latest cat news," I said, showing him a copy of Cat Fancy.

The Lick

October 22nd 2014 21:00




Rocky was just what I needed after two frustrating and angry days. He can lick me any time. Ditto Grey One who has now developed a habit of licking the inside of her cat bed.

Mega Foul Food

Following from my previous post, I really am not in the mood for any more passive aggressiveness. I feel like I am ready to explode at any moment, particularly when the person who set me off yesterday is near me right now.

"You're actively aggressive," Edmund my psychologist friend said to me several years ago.

"Exactly."

Even Brett had told me he found me rude, abrasive, angry but also straight to the point and honest. The flipside of this was I also found Brett passive aggressive but at least he doesn't make innuendos.

"Will you just get to the point?" I once said to a colleague at a previous job when she was reprimanding me about something but she was waffling on. I didn't have time to hear the whole background story or to listen to hints; all I needed to know was what I did wrong and how I could fix it. "Just like a bloke," said Fred.

I also don't have time for people who drop their friends the moment they start dating, particularly when they say they are a feminist.

"I can't think of anything worse than having a friend who has always been critical of women who have given up their power to men and then goes along and drops me now that she's found someone," I whined to Fred. "I have another friend who is traditional so I don't agree with her views but what I like about her is she's consistent. She doesn't pretend to be a feminist and then act anti-feminist." The other thing that made me snipey towards her was how she used to complain about people who would criticise others by sending emails or text messages instead of doing it face to face and yet she sent me an email criticising something innocuous I put on Facebook. I then put her on a restricted list.

"She said I put photos of her friend's personal belongings on Facebook which was an invasion of her privacy and a security issue since she had been robbed before," I explained to Fred. "I can accept the first point but the photos didn't say where they were taken and there were several people in the photos so how am I compromising her friend's security?"

"I was about to say that," said Fred.

"Not only that, this is a person who once left her credit card in a shop and failed to cancel it even though I asked her to. I once told her she was a sitting duck for credit card fraud - which later happened - so who is she to talk to me about personal security?" This last point particularly irked me as I work in fraud prevention.

Iím Really not in the Mood for This

I hate passive aggressive people. You know, the type who will make innuendos or drop hints instead of just saying what the problem is. For Godís sake, I donít have time to listen to this.

Hey big Spender

"You're loaded," said my mother (or, as Fred calls her, mudder) the last time I spoke to her. "A thousand bucks to operate on a cat! Get rid of her. You can always get another one."
