What is something people think you don’t or wouldn’t do, but you know you would do?
Most people who know me seem to think I am this calm, controlled, non-cussing, person. I can be that most of the time, but there are times when I’m not. I do, however, try to be out of control, angry, and a speaker of bad words when I am alone.
One time when I worked at the hospital, a PCA called on the Intercom to yell at me for paging her when she was in another room. Problem was, from the front desk, I could not see the ends of the hall so there was no way to know if she was in a patient’s room or not. I told her, rather forcefully, that if I could not see where she was, how was I supposed to know if she was in a patient room or not?
When I hung up and turned around, everybody at the nurse’s desk was looking at me like ‘did you just yell?’
No, I didn’t yell, I just raised my voice slightly to be heard over her ranting, but nobody expected that of me.
Not sure how I got the matronly mom label.
In my writing, I write ‘sex’ scene when needed and have had people read my work and then say ‘I’m not the person they thought I was.”
It is what it is. I am what I am. Those people who really know me know what a little (calm) hellion I can be!
