Whew! Just got one of the nastiest emails from a California woman named SusanGarrett (firstname.lastname@example.org) about my blog postings.
Don’t you wonder why some people think that they can talk/write to other people, people they don’t even know, in such horrible, demeaning ways? Are they not sophisticated enough to ask for something or express disappointment, anger, frustration, etc, without being so vile?
I’m guessing one of four things about Susan Garrett:
1. She’s a total narcissist who thinks that she can treat people whatever way she likes, and they should either “understand” or “get over it,” or they “deserved it.”
2. She was raised by baboons who either never taught her the difference between the right and wrong way to speak to, and treat people, or didn’t know the difference themselves.
3. She’s not very smart, may have some kind of psychiatric issue (or very well could be a mental health professional . . .), her diet pills were wearing off, or she’s has another kind of substance abuse problem.
4. She thinks treating people terribly is the right thing to do as long as she feels better about herself while not caring how her actions might affect other people.
Someday, I’m going to post Susan’s letter here (She may not know it, but I LIVE for this stuff, and it’s always a nice reminder for me and for others to
remember to watch for the ugliness and toxic people that surround us (even people we don’t know from the Internet), who can stifle our creativity,
growth and self-esteem — and, honestly, doesn’t every quilt guild and job and church group have at least ONE Susan Garrett in their midst? LOL).
Susan, if you’re reading — please grow up, try walking in someone else’s shoes before you insult and degrade them, and consider taking a course or
reading a book in basic manners (my hunch is your tirade over something so silly, is not your first, nor will it be your last)! If you want or need something from someone, remember: You will ALWAYS attract more bees with honey than with vinegar!
Thanks for listening, cupcakes! Be be kind to each other out there . . .
