Diva Ranting: I had to laugh….

I had to laugh…
Recently I was told a story about one of my former clients. He was young just out of secondary school and trying his first part time job while going to college. He came from a interesting background without much training in social niceties. While mowing a large grave yard an angry woman came up and told him to fill her mothers grave at once.
He kindly replied…”That is not my job I just mow”. However, I will advise someone at once of your concern.” The woman still on the attack said …”Get your A@$$ over there and do it now.”
Again he repeated…”I am only mowing. I will be sure and tell someone for you”. She wasn’t hearing it. In true bully form she once again demanded…Get your lazy a%$$ over there and fill that grave.  This went on for sometime and she wouldn’t stop.  As most people might do when saturated in a no win situation the teen replied…”F{(# you, and your dead mother too. “
He got fired, of course, but I have to give him props for not backing down to a bully. Now we just have to teach him about win, win, negotiations. LOL!!
Don’t sit there feigning indignation. You know you loved it too. We all need to learn to control our rage. However, I usually accept a little more when standing up to a bully. Even in grief we don’t have the right to bully the innocent. The Diva has spoken.
