Ugh! It is bad enough parenting difficult children but I HATE HATE HATE having to deal with them in my adult interactions. There is a guy from a famous family (yes, if I said the name, 90% of you would recognize it) who has developed a dislike for me. Personally, I don't care, he's an idiot trying to ride on his famous relatives coattails. But now he has started to spread rumors about me! Mostly I just roll my eyes and laugh but he called my daughter's new coach to tell him he didn't like me...seriously??? The reality is that not-so-famous-boy disagreed with a decision I made as a volunteer many years ago. He complained and his complaint was over-ruled (aka I won) and he has never gotten over it. He is now a paid employee in the same field (but not the same company) that I volunteer. He made some very bad customer service decisions that cost him 20-25% of his clients each of the last two years. He blames ME for them leaving! I don't even know some of them!! What 40 year old is that insecure???? Add this to some difficult child-dating-drama amoung some of our elected officials (um..married elected officials) and I feel like I'm living in a bad sit-com!
