Cruel Or Just Clueless

Or to be or not to be, an asshole, in layman’s terms.

Wouldn’t it be great if every mouth came with a 15 second delay?  Imagine the feelings that would be spared.  Coming from a Cancerian Italian girl from Connecticut, it could possibly save the world, or at least me from jumping out a window.

I dodge insensitive remarks like bullets aimed at my head, making me wonder if Tourette’s syndrome comes in different strains, like smallpox, or herpes.

Some examples:

Look at you…don’t you eat?  It’s a miracle you can walk.

Aren’t you tired of looking like a paperboy?  Let your hair grow for godssake.

Isn’t it time you found someone to be with?  Let’s face it, you’re not getting any younger Susannah.

And my own personal favorite…ARE  YOU FUCKING DEAF?

I personally would choke before an utterance of this sort leapt from my mouth.  You could smell like a porpoise with your pants around your ankles and I’d never say a word.

As far as that 15 second delay goes, maybe I’ll write to NASA to see what they think.  Hey, it’s worth a try.

But for now you’ll have to excuse me while I remove the latest thorn from my side.


About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Thanks.

    I know it’s not much succor, when you’ve been wounded for the umpteenth time, but there has to be bad for there to be good, else all is bland. If everybody reveres and worships you, nobody does. You feel special, when you are held as such by a special few. Ying and yang.

    Susannah, it’s easy for people to say “Just let it roll off your back.” I can identify with you, thoughtless remarks hurt.
    Sometimes the best response is ‘why would ask/say such a thing’, but then there are those people that you know would love to go on and on about why they felt entitled to make the remark. I guess the best tactic is to say, ‘I’ll just pretend you weren’t so rude to ask/say that’, then turn your back and mosey on. Of course, nothing works if the clod is a close relative.

    • I do try not to pick up the rope, as they say, since engaging always makes it worse. But I am very sensitive by nature, so I’m in perpetual tears it seems. Then it passes until the next clod…love that word…shows up.


  3. I learned young that if you can’t say something nice, you don’t say anything. Obviously that wasn’t a universal lesson taught by all parents. I admire honesty which it comes to facts. When it’s about perceptions I don’t give a rat’s ass about it.

  4. Keep the hair short. More women should have short hair. Never worked out why short hair is considered unfeminine by so many people.

    • I try to be magnanimous when someone comes after me, but the truth is, I’m always so staggered by the affront and its lack of manners, I can’t help but to react. I ask myself, what would David Sedaris do? Lol
