Are you high maintenance?

I was recently told I was a "High Maintenance Woman," by the Salesman (who said it with the utmost adoration of course). It doesn't bother me, because honestly I am a particularly picky controlling woman who just wants it her way knows what she wants. Does that really make me High Maintenance? I don't think so.

High Maintenace could be defined by some as needy, fussy, whiny (I do get kinda whiny sometimes), hard to please, not easily impressed (it doesn't take much for me to be impressed, really it doesn't) attention grabbing, difficult to deal with, troublesome, demanding, inconsiderate, and stuck on themselves. Only a couple of those actually apply to me ;)

After listening to the women in our office today complain about the infestion of velvet mites(which hang out on the bricks outside) in our 3rd floor office , which actually amounts to one on someone's desk, I realized I am not high maintenance AT ALL. They actually want our company to pay high dollar for an exterminator to come INSIDE to spray for OUTSIDE bugs on the THIRD floor, and they want to close the office when they do, because the insecticides will cause breathing problems. ARE YOU SERIOUS??? Do they watch the news?? 5+ million people out of work, and they want what?? These women around here are EXTREMELY high maintenance. They are the whinniest, pickiest, fussiest, uptight, bunch of complaining women ON THIS PLANET! Grrrrrr!!!

So hubby comes home tomorrow! YEA! It's about time, because I need him to do somethings for me, like spray for bugs.......

I am forever telling Vol Fan just how low maintenance I am. I don't think he's buying it.

Yay for hubby coming home. Vol Fan is due home this evening. He's got some work to do. I have a critter in my attic and I don't do critters!

Woody- The Salesman doesnt buy it either.

Suz- You're right, they are sissies although a spider jumped out of a folder on my desk today, gotta admit, I was slightly startled: :)

BHE- hahah, there is a difference between "Well Maintained" and High Maintenance :)

MPM- You're right, there are plenty of them out there.

NNG- Definitely see you Saturday! Can't wait :)

Crazy women! They need to concentrate on their jobs while they still have them!

Of course now there are some in Congress that want to pass a bill mandating paid vacations. I don't know how you can make someone give their employees paid vacations. In fact, just last month my old employer, a large county government, was forcing employees to take UNPAID VACATION time off. I'm not sure how the two opposing mandates will play out, but it's getting crazy.

I'm glad your husband is coming home....and how sweet that you are so appreciative, and low maintenance! said...

Oh, honey! March yourself up there and blast the side of that building with some store bought bug spray tonight when no one is around. Then pat yourself on the back and go back to work on Tuesday! Heh! ;-)
