Why is it no one refers to me as an "old bird" "biddie" "old woman", etc.,?

I'm usually referred to as "that girl" "that chick" "tough girl" "young lady" etc., hell probably worse..Ouch

When i was walking into the gym last night, (late) a young man tried to get my attention by yelling: "hey!" 

i didn't stop, so he ran up to me and said: "Excuse me, young lady, but I've been watching you work out, you are one tough girl!"Smile

i thanked him.. he shook my hand but didn't know my arthritis had just flared up.LOL

another "female" incident..

i came into the locker room at our gym.  A woman had all of her sh&*&t spread out on a bench in front my and other people's locker.  I figured she shouldn't take long, so i wouldn't have to interact w/her? i washed my hands, waited a few mins.

this older - well she LOOKED older- witch just sat there hogging the bench.

I walked after a while, and said softly "shi&*&t"  the last thing i need after a work out is to deal w/these females at our gym.  So i said "Excuse me".. she looked up and barely moved over. 

Thus, i walked over sat down right beside her. used my narrow a**ss, nudged her over, and commenced to opening my combination lock. (i had no idea i was THAT strong in the hips. She slid quite a ways)...LOL

She was so surprised that she sat there for several seconds, w/her mouth agape.  then immediately began moving her crap, and sat down on another bench at a much greater distance from me. I had my Ipod the whole time.

yeah.. she was saying something while i removing my gear from my locker.. but when i stood up to leave? she shut up very quickly.. i didn't bother to acknowledge her, and just walked away.

my SO is sometimes afraid that  i will be kicked out of a gym whenever i stand up to guys, females, bullies - or when people are annoying.

A gym is a place where you work out.  That is it.  It's not a place of "power", "dating" "socializing" or "procreation" for me. i only have one agenda, and that is to work out.

Folks in small towns are probably the most insecure in gyms.  If you choose not to interact with them they take either 2 stances:

1) Observing, yet talking bitterly about you. (usually males/females who wish to interact but can't.)

2) Openly admiring yet respectfully leaving a person alone.

I find it even stranger that when a well built man comes into the gym and minds his own business - he is considered the "strong, quiet type"..

Yet when a well built woman walks into a gym and minds her own business - she's considered a bi&*&ch..

.... and at work..

a gay, fat guy is wheeled in for me to do an exam on him.  He is instantly condescending, and stand offish. 

In this small town, i am asked this one question the moment a person sees me - at least 10+ times a day.  My answer is the usual "I've been asked that so often i've forgotten" or "I usually don't answer that question because i have forgotten".. I, personally, do not wish to divulge that type of information to anyone.  It's none of their business where i'm from, how many pups are in my litter, etc.

People specifically from small towns don't even introduce themselves they just look at you (being black - yes, we are a rare sight here) and ask "where are you from?" "how many kids do you have?" "why are you here?" etc.  One question usually leads to another "stereotypical" question..Ouch

They are personal, and i really don't have to answer them.  folks realize that they are being pretty invasive, and feel kind of embarrassed and we laugh it off and keep it moving.

Whelp... w/o even asking my name he started in on the questions.. I gave my usual answer as i was prepping the room, and helping him get on the table..

and she/he got pissed and said: "Well, if you're going to be a b*&ch just SHUT UP AND DO MY EXAM."

For at least 1 millisecond, i was ready to throw him back in his wheelchair and roll him out into the traffic..Confused

I found it strange, that because we are in a "service position", that people can get away w/being absolute as&* wipes, and still feel justified.

the poor guy had a condition...so, i figured, okay..he's stressed, and scared.  so i did the exam, put him (all 250+ lbs of him) back in the wheel chair,  put back on his blankets, and talked to his nurses.

the nurse stated that he was a "gay barber" and was very stressed..

I don't care if you're the Barber of Seville.  If you expect folks to help you, don't piss them off before they do so.

that's like walking into the lab, and pissing off the lab tech BEFORE she takes your blood.

Strange things can happen to your healthcare along the way.

And they wonder why that nurse Charles Cullen (the angel of death) killed over 250+ patients?

Ouch

I think I'm one of the few people not on the Scandal bandwagon...

Marco Antonia Solis is now one of my favorite songwriters/singers.. very impressive..

Enrique Iglesias never seemed to make his mark with the older music lovers.  Not like his father, Julio Iglesias.

Mark Anthony is also another singer/songwriter/actor that i've found impressive... even if he was dumped by Jennifer Lopez.. who "hasn't" she dumped??Confused

^^ Nor do I. I tried watching the first Madea movie and had to turn it off after about 20 minutes.
