Sing with me... Nobody likes me .. everybody hates me .. I think Ill go eat some worms....
Seriously that is how I'm feeling today.
My neighbor had a baby shower this weekend, and to be honest It was one of the most uncomfortable experiences that I have had in a long time. I didn't know anyone there. Do you think that anyone introduced me? nope... The host ... didn't even say hello... So this post is going to be all about how you don't become friends with your neighbors A lesson I should have learned.
Don't let your neighbors see that you have tools. They will always want to borrow them, and then your expertise along with it.
Bring your 9ft ladder into the garage under the cloak of darkness, otherwise they will all want to have a shot of it to hang their Christmas lights. As you spend the whole weekend assisting them hanging lights, you get left on your roof at 10pm with no assistance as all the neighbors are sitting around drinking boasting about their imaginative displays.
Do not find a neighbor that you have so many things in common with.. they look at it as they might have to have small talk.
Do not let your neighbors know you have glue and paper and other crafty bits.. they see this as a reason to send their children over to get homework assistance.
Don't answer your door with a neighbor panicked on the front step. You will end up giving up your Saturday plans to sit on a floor fixing a zipper for a prom dress, without a thank you.
Don't help your neighbor plan a birthday part, even if you do the invitation and the cake and such, it doesn't mean your going to get invited.
Don't let your neighbors know you can sew, It means they expect you to make handmade one of a kind items. The 5 dollar pack of burp clothes from Walmart just won't do..
You know, I usually don't get to upset.. I guess I'm just really in a mood today. I'm just fed up, feeling used and feeling like I'm the last one picked for a game of kickball. Thank goodness my sister will be here in two weeks. I need a friend.
I will be putting a tutorial up this week for those burp clothes.
