Sometimes you just need to rant. So that’s what I’m going to do…
I went to a banquet earlier this week. It was for a company that I used to work for. I was looking forward to seeing everyone for the first time in several years (also, I was having a damn good hair day). So I run into my first old coworker. First question she asks me.. No lie.
“So is there a special guy in your life?”
I mean REALLY?! WHY MUST I HAVE A GUY IN MY LIFE?!!!!!!!! ARRRGHHH! Remember when the Oscars last year made a big deal about “ask her more” than what she’s wearing? That needs to start up in normal life, except instead of ask her more than clothing, ask her more than if there’s a “special guy” in her life. Ugh. Bleh.
So I make niceties and get the hell away. Oh! I’ve run into another coworker. First statement:
“Katy, I didn’t even recognize you!” (I was blonde when I worked there)
Going well so far.. Insert polite chitchat.. We’re doing good..
“So are you seeing anybody?”
The night is steadily going downhill. I get seated at a table with a bunch of other single ladies (I mean there were a couple of teenagers, but still!). This is great! We’re ladies and we’re awesome.
Well, one girl, I think she’s 21 or 22, starts texting and she’s giggling. I ask her in a silly voice if she’s texting a guy. She replies “sadly, no”.
Ugh! Don’t be sad about it!!!!! You can have your sad days, I GET IT. But for real. Just be happy. If the right guy comes along GREAT, but don’t just be sad and alone. Do stuff. And whatever.
Okay this post is going downhill. Here’s another angry gif.
