I don't like people

Okay not really... but I really don't like crowds. But, seriously, on Sunday I was "kidnapped" by Goofball and while out we ran up to the local fast food place, Sonic for those of you that know and those that don't, check this out....THIS..... so he parked away from other cars and said, "Because you don't seem to like to be around other people." No, No I don't!

I don't know when or why or how this started but I hate to be around a lot of other people, some yeah, and really there is no set number, it is about the moment. Sometimes 100 people is just fine but 101 could be too many, other times 1 person is too many. I like my space.... a lot of space! As much space as I can get in fact! (except when am I around Goofball, then there better not be a lot of personal space....) I was thinking about this today on the elevator when there were way toooo many people in it and I was squashed all the way in the back. As soon as it got to my floor, I darted out! Didn't even look back to see what had happened to my two co-workers that were left inside. Were they squashed by the 8 large guys that piled on two floors before? I didn't know, didn't care because I was out of there! They came off fine and laughing at me.

Anyway, I was reading this book about being an Introvert. It explains that as an Introvert, I need to be alone to recharge and being around other people can wear me out. True! Oh so true!

But, I also think most people are stupid. They are rude, don't realize there are other people on the planet aside from them and theirs.

Would it kill people to smile? Open or hold the door for someone carrying a baby or child? Yield to pedestrians? Not yak it up in the middle of the aisle at the grocery store and when you say "excuse me." they would politely move, not just ignore you or worse give YOU a dirty look!

I could go on and on but I will just step off my soap box and exit now.

WHEW! Finally something different about us! I'm an extreme EXTROVERT. I try really hard to be considerate and think of others, but really, everything is all about me. Not that I conciously want to hurt others, but I process every bit of information outside myself. It is hard work for me not to be in charge, pushing through, and annoying others.

It is in my fabric, I embrace it.

I can relate, sometimes I just have to be rude. Widen them elbows, and make some room for myself. Other times, run-lol!

Es, Knew there had to be SOMETHING different about us! We just had to keep digging to find it.

Trapped, Who knew?
