I know it’s been a really long while since I’ve posted anything. Life has been a little crazy these last few weeks. between the Teen’s 14th birthday bash, the Maniac’s birthday coming up next weekend, trying to get projects done for my etsy store.. and just life in general it’s been hectic to say the least. BUt I’ll get you all caught up on that later.
Yesterday I had something happen that completely floored me.
Something, so insane, immature and just jaw-droppingly stupid I had to share.
I’m 38 years old, and I got mean-girled.
I got the mail, and in it was a white envelope addressed to me, with no return address. Naturally, I was curious. So I opened it first. No one wants to open bills anyway!
Inside was a piece of white paper, on it a letter scrawled in pink crayon.
Yes, I said pink crayon.
And the contents of this letter… And I quote..
“the Meet up group do not like you or child. More than two moms complaint to her about you and your child!! Please Leave the group.”
Can you believe that? I thought I left my mean girls in 7th grade. A woman over the age of 30 sent this to me. Scrawled in pink crayon. They even took timeout of their day to not only mail this letter, but to take it to a post office away from their house.
So mean. So pointless. So stupid.
Such a coward that they couldn’t just be a grown up and tell me they have a problem with my to my face. And more importantly couldn’t tell me they have a problem with my kid. Such a coward they had to resort to anonymous bullying.
I have a suspicion who sent it, although I’ll probably never know. I have had some issues with the organizer in the past, but I thought we had mended all of our fences and everything was fine.
To my knowledge the complaints about me are old news, I thought that was in the past after the fence mending. The thing that bugs me about that, is that the organizer has used those exact words to me face “more than 2 moms have complained about you” … so either she is telling people about complaints about me- which is a big problem. Or she wrote it herself. A bigger problem.
So now.. what is my action plan?
I think I’m going to lay low for a few days. Let the culprit wonder. They were obviously looking for a reaction. I won’t give them the satisfaction.
I am going to investigate/confront my suspicions next week. We’ll see what happens with that.
Then I will post the letter on the group’s website. I think the people who I genuinely think are my friends and are not 7th grade mean girls will be interested to know the kind of people they are exposing their children to.
Then I’m out. I do not need people like that in my, or my daughter’s life.
It’s sad really that it had to come to this. I’ve spent the last year with most of these people. I thought some of them were my friends. Yes, I have 2 people who I know are my true friends. The rest I’m not so sure anymore. It sucks feeling like you don’t know who to trust. Like everyone is talking behind your back. Like someone is just waiting for you to turn around to get our their dagger.
My message to that person who sent me the letter:
GROW UP. Set a better example for your children, or they are going to turn out to be the pathetic, cowardly, mean bully that you are. THe apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
