Some woman made a remark to me today; it was disturbing. I was not in a position to speak to her so I said nothing. She’s got a reputation as a total pain.
Ten minutes later, I wound up in the same room with her. This was unexpected. There were three of us there. I was talking to the man, who we both know. She joined the conversation, interrupting us in the process. I had deliberately turned my back to her.
“Blah, blah, you too,” she said, innocently. I didn’t exactly wheel around, but I did turn in a distinct fashion,
“What do you think you’re doing, coming up to me and telling me _________?” I said. “That’s not true. Why would you make a disturbing comment like that?
“I didn’t…” she went deny, but I wouldn’t let her.
“Yes, you did. That is exactly what you said to me and I didn’t appreciate it one bit. I don’t want you to ever say anything like that to me again. It’s a disgusting thing to say; if you feel the need to talk to people like that, it better not be me.”
She denied slightly, then apologized,
“I appreciate the apology, really I do. But please don’t speak to me like that again. It’s upsetting and if you do it again, I am going to confront you, just like this. I won’t let you speak to me like that. If that’s all you’ve got, don’t speak to me at all.”
I felt good about this. I would do it again in a heartbeat. It occurs to me, this is Saturn in Capricorn. Really, I can’t wait for this transit. There is such a thing as right and wrong. I can’t wait to see people with spines, stand up!
