It’s gonna be a short Totally Awkward Tuesday today! Why? Cause I’m lazy and I have to get to work. I’ve been up since 4:30 for the gym and I’m running late now (not too late that I couldn’t just down a HUGE bowl of Lucky Charms, but whatev).
When I was home visiting BF this weekend we decided to play a little putt-putt. We started out behind a group of four people… they were awful. And they must be pretty bad for me to say that, cause I am not at all good (nor do I claim to be good) at putt-putt. But all four of them were bad. Like, every hole hit the max bad. But that wasn’t the frustrating part.
The frustrating part was that two 17-year old girls got in line behind us. Wait. Let me rephrase. Two 17-year old girls got awkwardly close behind our butts. Seriously.
BF knows me
fairly well to a T. He knows what makes me happy, but also what annoys me to no end. Not obeying the ‘rules of public space’ is my numero uno peeve.
I bit my tounge.
But by hole 3, BF looks at me and says “They don’t really get the whole concept of personal space, huh?” To which I was relieved that it wasn’t just me who noticed. He said that he felt he better say something because he knew it was killing me.
Hole 10. Or at least I think it was that hole. Who knows. Anyways, it’s this really weird hole with a giant waterfall contraption in the middle of it. You can’t really see if the people ahead of you are finished. So BF and I putted away. As soon as we both teed off (umm not quite), these girls walked pretty much all the way up to where we were putting. This just pushed me over the edge. I looked at the one girl and said “We can just let you know when we’re done.”
And the girl said… “Oh no. That’s ok.” Like “no big deal.”
UMMM yes. On top of them being unusually up in our space, they kept talking really loud about all of these high school things. WE.DON’T.CARE! Grr.
All we wanted to do was play a little putt-putt, but it was ruined by two annoying high school girls.
Am I just overly sensitive to people? Or does anyone else feel that there are social rules of public spaces that need to be obeyed?
