What I meant to say...




Okay my good friend Chief is starting this "What I meant to say" thinga majig. Everyone is so witty and funny I'm going to seem like a total bore.

But oh well... Here we go.

To the girl at Hip Hop who saw the bump I have left over from my collar bone healing and looked at me like I was alien:

What I said was:

"I know huh! It's like Hump Back of Notre Dame but on my shoulder, sorry it scared you, should have warned you before."

What I meant to say was:

"Thanks Jerk now I'm going to be even MORE self conscious of it then I already am! Next time I'll warn you before showing you by poking your eyes out so you will be a little more tactful before gazing upon it".


That's all I got...

Go over and join Chief--just click on the link at the top :)


Curious... what would you have said?

Oh and I have an interesting question up for Group Therapy over at Real World that I think you guys should give your opinions on!!! Dad's AND Mom's alike!!!

I like what you should have said much better than what you actually said! :)

Chief said...

Tracie said...

That is one way to teach tactfulness :) You were already so witty in what you did say I would hope that the person got the point!

David said...

Is there any chance you might put a pic on so we can see it?

I would have said, "Come closer and put your finger out. It needs to be fed."

Southern Sage said...

bwahahahahaha
I noticed that too. A dang horn growing out of your shoulder! Like a Rhino kinda. Maybe you can affix something to it like a flag or something.

My friend Lucy....who is thin and has big boobs...walks with her feet turned out. Quite possibly her only flaw...though I never noticed it. An ugly, ignorant, well disliked, fat bellied neighbor of ours (who has nasty teeth) asked her what was wrong with her and why did she walk that way. ??????? We told her she should have said because her "studly real man of a husband took care of bidness last night and rearranged her pelvis, but that we noticed his wife never walks funny...bless her heart." I'm pretty sure that would have shut him up....

You had a broken collar bone? Why hadn't I heard about this?

Don't you just love when someone stares right where you are most self-conscious, making you feel like a freak of nature?! That's just the best!

♥Georgie♥ said...

LOL...I 'just' found this lil meme/blog linky and LOVE it!!!!

Mae Rae said...

Kmama said...

Oh my. Some people are just so rude. Maybe you should've said what you meant to say!!

Heather @ Two Little Monkeys said...

Love what you meant to say!

Malea said...

Shelle, you complete me.

mindij said...

I can't believe some people! I wish you had said the second one, that'd be so awesome!

Thanks for stopping by!

T said...

Ooooh, I might have to go over and confess all of the things I wish I'd said to that snarky checkout girl at Kmart :)

Our Favorite Things said...

It is just too bad that we can't really say what we think...

Melissa said...

Oh you should've just said it! I can't stand rude people! Rudeness brings out my honesty!

Melissa said...

Oh and thanks for stopping by my blog!

Debbie / Cranberry Fries said...

I think you're just as funny as the people you're always saying are funny. You crack me up.

kys said...

LOL! Next time tell her. People can be so rude.

I lurve this meme.

mother goose said...

hey, i'm back!! I sooo want to do this too, because I think in the r rated version but never say things. Does that mean, I should be constantly repenting??

I would have said, Oh yeah, I know. Looks bad huh?

I was thinking: Look B, its just a bump now get over it. At least this will go down and go away but that wart on your face never will.

outwardly, I am a nice person but there lies a demon within. I have to tame the dragon.

I need to start taking notes tomorrow so I am ready for this on Wednesday! Had a hard time pulling something together - since I usually just say it right the first time ;)

David Edward said...

I like your new picture - you are lovely.

wendy said...

I have read a few of these now and they are pretty funny.
I always thought --when I quit work at the court house last July---I'd love to stand up on my desk and shout MY THOUGHTS. (sorry, can't put it here, bleeped out)
