just an FYI.....Classiness does not = rudeness

Okay...I need to vent about a huge pet peeve that I have!! I just cannot stand when I have to be present of people who in their minds think that "being classy=being rude". I took the girls to the Children's Museum today and I swear...I encountered so many rude and snobby mom's. I was standing and watching my girls play, and to the left of me there was this mom in her Bebe sweat pants and her Ugg boots packing up all her stuff into her stroller. She needed to grab something on a chair to my right...she walks right in front of me, so close that I stumbled back a step...and she does not even say excuse me! Then she proceeds to look at me on her way out with this snobby rude look! I could not believe it! I mean you know what....that's great that you obviously have lots of money...and wow for you that you wear 80.00 sweat pants, but really...does that give you the right to treat people like crap? I don't think so!!! Now please don't get me wrong, I am not saying that everyone who wears expensive clothes are "snobby"...this particular woman was though. My good friend is obsessed with Coach purses...and she is the SWEETEST girl on the planet!

A few weeks ago, I was at Anna's ice skating lessons. I was sitting with my son Michael and my daughter Allie watching from the bleachers. There were like 7 mom's gathered next to me talking about Juicy Couture bags for like 30 min! They were all comparing there diaper bags and bragging about how much they paid for them. Allie had wandered over to I went to get her....two of the women actually gave me a rude look! I suppose it was because I was in my cute khaki cargo pants with my Doc Marten shoes and black hoodie!! I defiantly did not have a $500.00 diaper bag either!!

Anyway....My point is this. It's fine to have lots of money and it's even totally fine to wear 80.00 Bebe sweat pants. It's not okay to treat other people like crap, and to act as if you are above anyone else on this planet. I just hope that the people who value all there "things" more than anything else...really do get a clue someday. It's sad go through life like that, being mean to other people.

So SMILE.......It will brighten someone's day, I promise!! Be an example to your children to respect EVERYBODY.

Wow. Rude people suck. Just proves you are a better person than they are! I intentionally smile and am overly friendly to people like that. It makes them mad. :-)

Amen to all of that, Sista! I couldn't agree more. I have no idea where people get so whacked in their thinking?!?! The sad thing is that people like this (people I know) pass these sort or ideas, thinking, and behavior onto their children. It's a vicious cycle. One day they'll regret living their lives for things and not for people.
