I really don't like people

I just hate inconsiderate people.

I have a story assignment and called this guy to publicize his development. He tells me to call back at 11:30 as he's about to be on a phone conference. I call back and he's left for lunch and then on to a meeting after that.

Asshole.

Because I have nothing better to do that sit here on my ass and wait for him to call back. I had promised to take the kids to play at Chuck E. Cheese. I was going to do that this morning before it got crowded, but thought I'd wait for this call so we didn't have to hurry back for me to make my deadline. Instead, we get to go at the most crowded time of the time and I have this jackass to make me look bad with my editor because she is going to get a crap story.

Grr. I really hate people.

    Wait. You were going to promote HIS business and he blew YOU off? As a current journalist, I'd say that would cause me to leave out any favorable adjective I would have formerly inserted.

    The Podium Lady (who looks over the cashiers) at Fred Meyer was rude to me the other day. Then, Hubby came home and related that he had accidentally spilled his Starbuck's all over the bitchy Podium Lady's computer. So, there's also karma.

    Congrats MOT on quitting smoking. That is a good thing for you!!! Glad to hear it. Also, I'll heed the warning and stay away.

    And, Uzz and LabKat - I know you can related.

    Mom of Three - THANK YOU. Someone else who comprehends that he is getting free publicity for his business. This publicity could lead to more money from joint ventures people might want to pursue with him, etc. But, if he wants to be a lame-o jerk, then, he gets a lame-o story about his project. I wanted so badly to add:

    Dickhead did not return phone calls AFTER setting up a phone interview with me and dissing me.

    But, I took the high road. *sigh*
