Right? Right? Please? The key I think is just to do what I want and ignore the crazy attitudes of the people around me. I'm formulating a way to deal with rude people. It's just so shocking when it happens that you have no idea what to do about it. It reminds me, actually, of what Wolf Angel was writing about a while back, the way some people treat waiters badly. She was writing about class. But wasn't it Dave Barry who said, "A person who is nice to you and rude to the waiter is not a nice person." I think that's it. Some of these people are probably not nice to anyone, so I should not take it personally. But gosh, I'd like to give them a piece of my mind. Probably not going to happen, but I can dream.
Anyway, I'm going to try to push all that aside, work on the paper I'm writing, work on another blog presentation, make a comprehensive plan for Instructional Technology. I'm going to ignore stupidity around me. Breathe deeply.
