Petty and Pissy

Once a month, I get crabby.
Overly sensitive.

Ladies, you know what I'm talking about.

But that's sorta understandable, right? I mean, we all know there's a physiological reason why this happens to most of us. We have an excuse.

But what about when you don't have an excuse?
What about when you're walking around, generally pissed off, and you can't blame the calendar?

I have no reason to be pissy.
Except I do.

Petty things that are currently pissing me off and I have no idea why:

1. What the fuck is wrong with people who think the general laws of traffic
do not apply to them? (This is especially aggravating when said people are your
colleagues and you want to kick them when you see them in the school

2. I've been busting my ass for 3 1/2 weeks to lose my summer weight and I
can't close one goddamn pair of pants without getting a muffin top, yet my
lovely Hubby eats 2 salads and works out 3 times and *poof!* his abs are

3. Especially chipper know, the ones who squeal "Smile!"
whenever they see you.

4. The fact that every night the only conversation I seem to have energy for is the same set of required questions: "You going to the gym in the morning?" "Did you prepare the coffee?" "Are the kitchen counters already wiped?" "Whose turn is it to read to Ben?" "Is everything ready for tomorrow?"

5. The general bullshit hypocrisy of people who pretend to be something they're not: like the person who has a rosary hanging from her car mirror but doesn't remember who she slept with last night, or the one who throws out risque comments every chance she gets but is really just a jealous prude.

6. The alarm clock needing to be set to 4:45 a.m., and knowing that the latest I'll be able to sleep in on the weekend is 7:15, if I'm lucky.

I think I kinda feel better now.
Maybe this helped.

And if it doesn't, that's okay, I'm sure in a few days this random senseless pissiness will pass...
...just in time for that time of the month.
At least then, I'll have an excuse.


  1. sounds like you have totally valid reasons for being in a mood!

  2. Hang in there girl! The world is full of idiots...Luckily, we can entertain ourselves with their dumb actions...

  3. I know exactly what you mean. I have those days (weeks, months - whatever) when I'm pissy just because I am. It goes along with being human, I suppose - and those freaking idiots out there don't seem to help matters any.

    I just try to remind myself that "this too shall pass (eventually).

  4. "Smile!"

    Oh gawd why do people do that?! I find that flatly stating "Nope." really seems to throw those people off kilter. It's well worth trying when not in a professional environment. It feels good.

  5. I've been totally pissed off at bad drivers lately. I have no time or energy for any *real* conversations with my hubby either. I hate fake (or hypocritical) people. And smokers (sorry if you are one) REALLY get me cranky! I can't even open the windows and enjoy fresh air in my own house because my friggin' neighbor smokes like a chimney outside and in comes right in the window! ICK! Alarm at 4:45?! Wow, that does suck. I thought mine was bad at 5:25!

    Wow, I feel a little better now, too! But luckily (or not so luckily) I DO have an excuse to be cranky right now! ;-)

  6. Just found your blog and this post made me stop in my tracks! I've had the same pissy thoughts all week. Especially number 4. As soon as my tot is tucked in, I'm out. Nobody home. Don't talk to me. Just park me in front of some trash t.v. with a martini,thanks.
    Glad to find you!

  7. Chipper people bug me. But chipper people before 10 am really bug me.

  8. Oooh, all of these are so good. I tried to choose one # to especially second, but I second them all. Hope you're feeling better.

  9. Wish I knew what my excuse was for being bitchy; crabby; and overly sensitive?....;o) Loved it...especially that I can pretty much guess on a few...MM

  10. I love this post! I'm in such a horrible mood today, and this helped. I have no reason to be pissy (besides normal crap) but I am. I actually found this post because I searched the word fu*k in my google reader lol, THAT's the kind of mood I'm in!

  11. Hello - put it out there and let it go. That's something I am working on - letting things go. So simple but so difficult. Practice, practice, practice. Dream of being in the sun - it always makes me happy.


Comments rock...
