Don't ya just hate, hate, hate it when someone is soooooooooooooo right and you just know they are saying either to your face or behind your back, "I told ya so!"
Some people will go to great lengths to avoid this event.
Ignoring the event, the happening or non happening of said event, or lying about what is actually happening to merely avoid the receiving of that phrase "I told ya so" will cause some to go to these extremes.
I'm not that hell bent on avoiding that phrase most of the time although I still dislike it; I'm just to lazy to go through all that drama to escape someones evaluation of my intelligence and I think that's where all the loathing of that term originates. Hey, I don't doubt my intelligence; sometimes our decisions are not routed through our intellect. Emotions and our life experiences other then our IQ factor in to what or how we decide.
All this and only because I was told that I would have a cell phone before the week was up. Soon I'll be holding a Sony Erickson Walkman phone in my hand. The husband is off to Walmart to secure a bright red Walkman phone; he tells me that it is the closest one can get to the Razor phone I so loved. Apparently one of the fellows on the rigs had that same phone and had nothing but high praise for it. I'm just hoping that fellow wasn't wearing bib overalls, had most of his teeth and could read flawlessly and effortlessly.
Opinions are a scary thing. It depends on who is giving them out.
I'm waiting on the husband and my shiny new phone. I'm not hiding. I'm announcing that the "I told you so" won't bother me a bit. It's red. The phone I mean. I'm excited. I'll let ya know what I think of it in a few days.
