a flag lady (road construction flag women) called me an "idiot" today..lol.. she was not directing traffic and i waited for her to motion me to go on, when she finally did i waved to her like "thanks" and i had my window open a little and she said
i thought to myself.. well, i could stop and yell... "your the idiot for standing there with a flag".. but then i thought that wouldn't be very nice..lol.. so i just drove on.
i've never been called an "idiot" and i kinda feel like reporting her for poor customer service. however i don't know her name and she looked kinda "rough" so maybe she would come after me or something.
i'm so passive sometimes, what would you all have done?
ok, i would have stopped the car, gotten out, and asked her what i did that caused her to think i was an idiot... because from my perspective, she's the one standing in the road with a flag.
but then, i'm pretty assertive in situations like this.
and i have stopped my car, gotten out, and spoken to people in similar situations. i have gotten to the point where i refuse to take any crap from people i don't know.... now if only i could transfer that over to the people i care about....
yeah, yeah, i know its dangerous and i'm going to get shot.
