Arsehole

For five years I have thought that one person I know is an absolute arsehole
Last night I told him that he was
It was over an arguement that essentially he was in the right side of
But his manner, just flipped me over the edge of good breeding and I could no longer bite my tongue
It felt guilty...
But....mighty good
Even though most of it was transference

Winnie went to Trendy Carol's this afternoon...
She kicked the cushions from off her sofas too.

  1. I wonder how many others have been biting their tongues for years...it's not easy to be nice in this situation.
    Satisfying once done, though!

    1. The right sort of people do not want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them.

    My goodness, that was a long held and heavy weight off your mind/conscience. Honesty is strange thing you feel better for...if alooften guilty for having spoken. English reserve is a bitch to master!

  7. My grand dog Pickles rushes into my living room and runs around tossing all the sofa and chair pillows onto the floor. When they are all on the floor, he calmly walks out of the room...mayhem!

  12. oh, dear. I tried to avoid the people I think are arseholes, but it can be difficult, especially when they are in your family. Sometimes words just have to be said. I hope you don't have to see this person too often. It will be interesting to see if he behaves any differently now.

    A red tail on a horse means it's a 'kicker'; can you make some sort of thing for Winnie - please don't, sweet child that she is.

  15. After four years I let go at a member of my sweet card club. So now we are no more a card group, and three of us simply are looking for a new 4th member. It may all work out, or not.

  16. At my worst, I was known to respond, I know I am an arsehole, thank you for noticing. I am much better know.

    Ah, I remember when working in the ER (A&E there) when a med student came out of a patient's room, mumbling under her breath. When were far away from the patient, I inquired what she had said. It was "cloaca", which is the fetal rectum at a stage in development or as she meant it, an immature arsehole!

  19. Gotta love Winnie. As for the obnoxious ones, I simply say "EAT shit and DIE". . . . Note, edit as required.

  20. Winnie's a bitch, and at her age she deserves to be.

  21. Well John. There are some people who just press your buttons, for no good reason, and others who really do need to be told they are excrement .... that’s just the way the world is. You gotta do what you’ve gotta do.

  22. This made me giggle as I remembered one of my late husbands best insults. He has send to saybwhen in great disgust ‘I would call him an arsehole but they are useful and he is not’. I have had great need to use the phrase recently!xxx

  23. Just hope he's not in your family!

  24. sometimes, some people need telling.

  25. I wonder if Winnie goes from sofa to sofa, pillow to pillow like a canine tornado or leisurely considers each pillow and then throws it on the floor. A candid camera video of Winnie and the pillows might be fun to see.

  28. Sometimes even a Bulldog needs cushions to chuck around. Good for her.

  29. Five years is a long time to think someone's an arsehole and to hold your tongue! I'm not sure I'd last that long, LOL!

  30. You're finally taking a lesson from Winnie. Just kick those damned cushions.

    ReplyDelete
  31. So, is this person a...friend?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Do you reckon that the "arsehole" thinks that you are an arsehole? I ask because everyone who I think is an arsehole seems to believe that I am an arsehole, and I have recently begun to wonder if perhaps we all could be right.

  33. Winnie is still throwing her fit. Did you kick cushions too?

    Note to Winnie - behave at Trendy Carol's house and she might buy you a little something..... diamonte encrusted neckerchief type of thing.
    Note to John - do some people still have Rissoles for tea/supper/dinner l wonder?

  36. I love your straight talking ways John! I said 'shit' to someone on social media reacently and she had a fit worthy of Bette Davis, calling me a fake among other things! I guess I am a fake as what I'd really wanted to say was eff off!!!
