I Don't Give A Damn How You Are ...
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee
God! I cringe every time I hear that! I'm just saying if someone says that to me ... I'm going to stop, look them in the eyes, make a horrible face, stick my tongue out at them.
I might even comment back in the same 'tone' of voice. If I do that, I know they will get my big hint. They might even think twice of doing it to someone else ... again.
I don't like fakey-ass people. God knows there are so many. They are always 'magically there' ... if they think you've done something 'great, important'. When they find out you are just yourself, always been yourself ... they 'magically disappear'. As for me, I'm always glad, because ... I don't have to figure out how to get them out of my life!
I know ... I know. Once in a while 'we all' ... have to be a fakey-ass person. I mean, really ... we do. Some things call for nothing less ... than being fakey ... unless you want to make a 'bad' scene. Do you agree?
Like when someone is blowing smoke up someone's ass ... telling them how beautiful they look. You look for 'that beauty' ... for some reason you don't see it.
Are you going to say, "damn, you look like hell ... there's nothing beautiful about you". Are you going to say that ... or are you going to agree, go your way. It's easier ... not to make a scene ... not only that, what in the world would you accomplish if ... you told the truth?
HELLO, HO------WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW AR-RRRRRRRRRE Y-----O---- UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU?
Don't tell me that, ever. I will instantly become disgusted. I hate to hear someone say that to me. I don't feel like smiling, being nice anymore!
Can't you just be honest, say 'I don't give a damn how you are ... it's just part of my job to pretend I do'?

NOTE: This is exactly my 'Gloria Opinion'. I know some things require 'being fakey' ... but, some things ... don't. I won't argue this with anyone ... I have a mind of my own. :) <3
