One of the other tenants in our office building was really, really mean to me this morning. :(

That sucks, not a great way to start your day. Take comfort in the knowledge kharma will bite that person on the butt.

David said...

There is no such thing as karma. Therefore, it is necessary for moonrat to carry out the karmic retribution herself.

Kick the twit down the stairs.

JenniferWriter said...

Sorry, Moonrat! I hate when the day gets off to a rough start. I'm sure it'll get better from here!

moonrat said...

What's the old saying? Kill him with kindness? :) I probably couldn't do it, but maybe that would be a good kick in the pants? :)

Aimless Writer said...

Wait till he's close enough then trip and spill your coffee all over him.
Oops!
Apologize.
Smile sweetly and walk away.
Later sneak a picture of his stained clothing with your cell phone and post it for us.
:)
Ooo, wait, make that grape juice!

Sounds like he was projecting his own misery on the world. It's him, not you, so try not to take it personally (I know, it's hard not to).

Karma will get his a$$, you don't have to.

Pamala Knight said...

What? Someone is being mean to you? He (or she)'s lucky that they're' there and I'm here or else she/he'd become intimate with my coke bottle to the head and stocking cap over the face routine. It was MADE for mean people like him/her/whoever was rude to you.

Mean people suck.

"There is no such thing as karma."

Sorry missed that one...then let's say this:

"He'll eventually treat someone else like scat and get kicked in the berries, so let it go."

Better?

Lexi said...

Sorry to be pedantic when you are in a frail, got-at state, but shouldn't the title be 'Boo hoo'?

I thought you were trying to make me jump. Perhaps you could make him jump...

David said...

Aimee: Okay, I like that. :)

Andrea Cremer said...

Boo!!!

A. Grey said...

Mean people suck. Don't let their dissatisfaction with life bruise you.

writeidea said...

How could anyone be mean to you? Sending you hugs and a warm cup of tea. Oh, and chocolate. Chocolate fixes everything.

Then kick him.

GetSheila said...

What did the poophead do? We need this information so we can all plan the proper form of retribution.

jjdebenedictis said...

I find the Boom-de-yada song always lifts my mood.

If not, try You Are a Pirate.

:(

Kiersten said...

Do you want me to come and kick him in the shins? I'm very short--he'll never see me coming.

Fay said...

-hug-

Act like there's no harsh feelings and bring him a cup of coffee. (Poison it)

I promise it works ;)

Chris Eldin said...

:-(

Hope you've forgotten him/her.

Ulysses said...

Just so's you know: I'm starting my second career as a contract hit man. However, since I have great respect for life, I'm taking the title literally: I just hit people. A slap. An elbow. A punch, if you're serious. My specialty is the ol' knee to the groin. A perennial favorite.

As an introductory offer, I'm willing to take on your contract free of charge. Just let me know the particulars, and choose from my stunning menu of bodily harm options.

I recommend the "Mike Tyson." You even get to keep the ear.

It's times like this when you need to find solace in the Enhanced Serenity Prayer.

Lord, help me to have the courage to change what I cannot accet, the strength to accept what I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

And Lord, help me to remember to hide the bodies of the people I had to kill because they pissed me off.

Sherri said...

I hope all the love you get here makes up for his poopiness.

Sarah Laurenson said...

Probably a very unhappy person with no friends and financial crap up the wazoo. Tortured by thoughts of suicide, lashing out at the world indiscriminately. When I meet such people, I think - 'sucks to be you'.

Miriam S.Forster said...

What you need is some good curses, preferably in Arabic or German. That way you can mutter invective until you feel better and no one will be offended.

If that doesn't work, here's a hug. {{{hug}}} :-)

Precie said...

not okay!

Lemmee at 'em!!! {said in best Cowardly Lion voiceI

WendyCinNYC said...

People who lead happy lives don't act like that. Don't let him bring you down.

Stuart Neville said...

You want me to come and sort him out next time I'm in NYC?*

*This offer is conditional on the size of the offender.

moonrat said...

you guys are so cute. thanks! you cheer me up.

Kronski said...

I gotta haggle with a Macedonian taxi driver to get home tonight, so it's kind of hard for me to drum up any sympathy.

Briony said...

I think you should slap them in the face with a dueling glove and demand satisfaction, Homer Simpson style.

Novice Writer Anonymous said...

Or with a metal gauntlet a la Cary Elwes in Robin Hood: Men in Tights.

I'm sorry you had a bad day, Moonrat. Maybe the rally monkey will say something really funny you can post about tomorrow.

Charles said...

*gives Moonrat virtual ice cream and chocolate*

Matt said...

Not cool.

Jeez, Sarah. Rub it in!

stacy said...

Seriously, though, what a jerk. Kill him with kindness. That's all you can do. If he has any heart at all he'll walk away feeling guilty.
