One rude person....

.... can sure ruin my day. I hate this about myself. I let things bother me that really shouldn't. I encountered a grumpy, rude person this morning at church and even though I KNOW that the issue is not with me.... probably her.... I let stuff like this sit and fester. So instead of eating my hurt feelings/embarrassment away here I am blogging about it.
To make a long story short, after my hour of teaching Kindergarteners this morning, I was "attacked" by parents coming to pick up their kids---- think small hallway with lots of rushed parents picking up from the 1st hour and dropping off the 2nd hour. I was trying to facilitate that, while keeping the kids in line. Very hectic. A lady came up to me in the midst of the chaos and asked where her child was supposed to go (I could tell there already was an attitude and I could hardly hear her) and I sent her upstairs---- yikes! a few minutes later she shows up at my door and chews me out for sending her to the wrong place. I sincerely apologized and told her the correct place her child needed to go. I guess I mis-heard her or in the midst of being bombarded I got confused.....
I hate that I let this stuff bother me this bad. What's the worst that happened???? She had to walk up and down the stairs???? Logically, I sit here and tell myself that she probably has other issues going on in her life and because I made a mistake I was an easy target to yell at. I mean.... what kind of person would "bitch" (sorry, can't think of a more appropriate word, lol) at somebody for something so trivial???? Obviously someone with a lot of problems.
OK, just typing this out and re-reading it makes me feel better. It is stupid for me to let this get me down. I guess with it being that TOM and feeling like even though I am doing everything right food-wise I am feeling bloated and like my clothes are getting tighter and not looser..... well, it doesn't help matters.
On the plus side, I met a super, nice kind lady this afternoon. My son invited a friend over and the Mom wanted to meet me before just dropping him off and we had a very pleasant conversation and discovered we have a lot in common. I should focus on that instead of the mean people!!!! I am pushing 40 yrs old.... too old to let the "mean girls" get the best of me. :)
