I do not like people

{This picture has nothing to do with this post...except it is quiet and peaceful and there are no people around.}

I took my kids to a very busy public place today and realized something.

I do not enjoy people.
Unless I know you and like you and you are part of my circle.
When I go out, people annoy me.
I often find myself looking at them just shaking my head, wondering what the heck they were thinking when they just cut off my young children or belched in a public place.

As I grow older, I am realizing that I will not tolerate crap.
If you cut my children or anyone I love off, I will let you know it is not OK.
If you throw something directly at my children, I will inform you that if you continue, I might just throw something back at you.
If you push anyone in my "party" out of the way so you can see the bubbles, I will push my way back in and say "Excuse you" very loudly.

If you piss off my children, I will allow my children to speak their mind freely.
If you are not supervising your children, I will tell you to...or I will supervise them myself so they understand that their poor behaviour is not OK.

I do not enjoy people.
They probably don't enjoy me, so we are even.

HA! Loved this! Was at a theme park a couple weeks ago and my son was standing at a water fountain patiently waiting his turn (which was next) and a boy walked up and stood right in front of him... with me standing right next to him! Oh, you bet I spoke my mind to him. He moved behind my son. And I don't really care if his parents were annoyed or not; but quite frankly, they weren't even paying attention to their children. Crazy.

There are fewer people here in Boise so we run into fewer issues with other people. I also am not afraid about gently reminding another person's child about basic rules of not throwing anything, pushing etc. I wish other people would teach their kids how to manage in polite society though. It really shouldn't be my place.
