I am Negative, Quarrelsome, Sarcastic and Impatient!

Day 24, Friday: Your top 3 worst traits





This is going to be another one of those posts that will be hard to write. It will take some thought. It is not any easier to list my worst traits that it was to list my good traits when I tried to sell myself. But it is today's prompt and I will do my best.

  • I am impatient! I don't like being impatient but I am. When I want something, I want it now. When I want something done, I want it done now. When I go to a restaurant  I hate to wait in line. When I call someone I don't like being put on hold. Being patient is a virtue  so they say. Being impatient is awful. 
  • I am sarcastic! Sometimes that is okay. When someone calls me on my home phone and asks me if I am home, and I tell them "no I am at the grocery store" that is just being funny. Or are they being dumb. When I was pregnant and someone would say "haven't you had that baby yet?" and I said, "sure I had him months ago" was that funny or mean. I think being sarcastic can sometimes just be mean. And I will admit that I am sometimes just MEAN.
  • I am quarrelsome. I admit it. I like to argue. A Lot. About a lot of different things. Like politics. Or gun control. Or fashion. I can probably argue about anything. And sometimes that just isn't very nice. But remember, I warned you that I can be mean. 
  • I know that it only asked for three traits but if I didn't add NEGATIVE here then I would be lax in really telling you what my worst traits are. I usually see the cup half empty. I usually don't see the bright side. I usually see the worst of things. Now this is something that I have spent most of my life trying to work on. Who wants to be negative? Not me. I think there are people who think I like it. But I don't. Sometimes it is just easier. It is HARD to be happy all the time, isn't it?
There you go. Four of my worst traits. What are yours? Can you share them with us?
