Must be one of those days...

I was surprised at the vehemence of my thoughts regarding a girl in the department who made me feel quite foolish a few moments ago.

The Scenario: Normally, I sit in on a seminar that happens on Thursdays. For the last 2 weeks, however, it's been rescheduled to Tuesday because of various conflicts. (These schedule changes are not updated on the class web page, by the by, nor is email sent out about them.) However, this week, I had no record of the class being rescheduled to Tuesday, so I blithely wandered over to the appropriate place today. After a moment of realizing there was no one there, I ran into the aforementioned girl and asked if the seminar had been resceduled. She, with a rather smug expression on her face and oh-you-poor-dear tone of voice, told me that the class had rescheduled it together and of *course* it wouldn't have been held today.

I politely thanked her, went away, and proceeded to have exceedingly violent thoughts for a while.

Hence, this post. Hopefully, this will get it out of my system.

Oh, how I hate being condescended to. Yes, yes, I truly do.

Ah, I'm sorry. You can always ask me-- I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be condescending. Wouldn't want my legs broken.
As far as I can tell there aren't any more Tuesday meetings. Just as well-- supposedly I have office hours then, and it's probably really annoying to my students when I change them a bunch.
(Note to self: do not schedule office hours in a "mirror" time to any of your classes.)

[grin] Thanks - next time, all my questions to you. No condescension, no leg-breaking; everyone is happy.

And yeah - this much rescheduling of a seminar is pretty unusual, I think.

Embrace your anger! I've been telling you this for a while now, have I not? It doesn't lead to the Dark Side, the Jedi aren't real, your soul won't get eaten by any demons, and you will feel much better. Trust me, I know. It's a tool, no more, no less. Truly, it's healthy to have it and express it (albeit not with the killing, but that's what the imagination is for, and, Phillip informs me, larping, although I wouldn't know). Snide comments and dirty looks are a socially acceptable way to express anger at a haughty bitch.

Heh, me talking about healthy emotions. Now that is funny.

*mwah*

[grin] But....the Daaaaaaark Siiiiiide!

But yes, having imagined very violent things for a while and then writing about my anger made me feel tons better. It was mostly the writing, though, I think - the violent thoughts just sort of made me even grumpier.

Note to self: If ever LARP, take out pent-up anger on hapless other player, per Philip's advice. ;)

Ah, you can pony it up to the fact that she's secretly envious of your success and intelligence and she's intimidated by you. Oh, and she must be ugly too, and you're hot. Happens all the time.

How irritating. I don't see why you should feel foolish, though. She was just being rude, you weren't being stupid.

I think it was the implied, "Well, if you had been attending class properly, you would have *known* this. Idiot."

(Which was irritating, because I actually had been attending class properly, of course. But no one ever said emotions were rational beasts that recognize that false premises lead to an illogical argument.)
