Being laughed at
March 19, 2008 § 2 Comments
It’s never fun to find out that you’ve been laughed at behind your back- and I know I have been made fun of quite a bit (due to a job I had). But now I have felt something that tops that. A friend of mine offered that she and a friend we have in common were laughing at me behind my back. Does it matter what it was about? I won’t be telling what it was that made them laugh because I don’t need anyone analyzing the situation to tell me whether or not I reacted appropriately or not. It doesn’t help that I’m pregnant and haven’t had a decent night’s rest in over 2 weeks.
Once I was told, I was really uncomfortable. I was stunned that this person would even offer up this information. Now, what complicates life is that I was planning on doing this other friend (the one we have in common) a favor and I don’t know if I can do it. I’d feel uncomfortable telling the friend we have in common that I know that she was laughing at my expense but I’d also feel uncomfortable being around her constantly worrying that she was taking notes to further their amusement.
The curious thing about having a blog is that you write one thing one day and the next time you read it you find yourself in a totally different place and mood on the subject (not all the times, of course). So why bother blog about it if I’m expecting my feelings to change?
If you have a blog and you find yourself blogging about things that later you find don’t bother you, do you know why you wrote the entry in the first place?
