Grr.......

Ok so I was on the mainland yesterday and it was a bad day from the get go, the ferry broke down and we went from a 17 car ferry that takes an hour to get from our rock in the middle of the penobscot bay to a 9 car ferry that takes almost 2 hours........anyway 2 of my 3 kids had appointments at different places! I took my daughter to the dentist and I was working on my baby blanket (grr check the blog for more on this hellish dang thing) the receptionist said " aren't you to young to be knitting? I thought there was a grandmother requirement or something?" I just looked at her with a dumb founded expression........THEN when we took the middle son to have him rescreened (he flunked his preschool screening, Grr) The lady that screened him asked what I was knitting and I said a baby blanket, to which she said....hmm that is kind of an odd color for a baby......I am not much on green. I just did the old humph, meanwhile this dialog in my head was rolling. "Like I am F'ing knitting it for you Beeyotch, I don't know you amd I did not ask for your opinion. " Bah sometimes I am so not a people person. The whole day was awful....aside from Bud passing the tests with flying colors, they tested him up to a 4 year level and then they just stopped because he was fine.......he just turned 3 in August. So now I can thumb my nose at those a holes that keep throwing around autism and special ed lightly. My son is FINE......THANK GOD.......and my daughter has no cavities. But as or the rest of the day.....let's just call it a wash!

Why is it that people ALWAYS seem to feel the need to comment on your knitting? What, if I knit it public it means you have the right to give me your opinion? Sheesh. HDW, when someone has said something to me about not liking the color, my standard reply is: "Well, it's a good thing I'm not knitting it for you then." That usually makes them shut up and leave me alone.

People can be so rude. Makes ya want to shove a knitting needle up their noses, doesn't it? ;)

You live near a bunch of butt holes!

I walked around all day dressed like an upside down pumpkin-green, like crayon green, pants, and an orange sweater, just waiting for people to start crap with me...nothing.

I own a hand knit with love (snot) green and red baby blanket. All my kids did was barf and pee on it.

I personally hate it when people have to comment on your knitting...like when I was on the train today, some lady saw me knitting and started yammering on about what she knitted and when, why, and for whom, and all I wanted to say was "shut up I'm counting!"

So much for us knitters being nice people...but then again, we aren't required to be nice if other people are being jerks.
