Fat Black Girls

I appreciate everything G-d does and has done for me, I just think it's a little...funny..that for the past year every job I had involved me working under some dark, aggressive, control freak girl, who, if I don't obey and impress, might get me fired; last summer in LA it was a short Iranian-Californian girl, this winter it was a half black/half Jewish(?) girl who was twice my size, and now it's an actual fat black girl from Queens- kind of like "Jen" from the "Hell's Kitchen" television series but times 5!

....I see one thing that has pissed people off about me in general has always been that I tend to respond to criticisms while smiling...I don't know why...probably some 'deep psychological thing'...but, I can't help it...

Is anyone else following 'Hell's Kitchen' by the way? They're down to the last two, so exiting! ..It's honestly the first TV series I've followed since I was fourteen! ....some things I did find a bit unbelievable though...mostly that they kicked out Ben and Bobby and kept Matt and Rosanne for so long...especially Matt!..

...watching it actually reminds me of my time in Orlando; the 'quiet-build up-climax-anticlimax' sequence; the stress, the rush, the pleasure of having a proper dinner service...not too many other jobs are so fulfilling and so much fun...I also had pretty good relationships with the people there..(except the bosses of course..but they left a lot, so..). I can honestly say that the relationship I had with the waitress was by far the best I've had with any female (though she was Catholic and from Honduras..). After spending the days with her I looked at the 'JAP' ("Jewish American Princess") type girls who showed up there sometimes and thought "I have to end up marrying a girl like one of these snobby, whiny, pampered Jewish girls?!"...but Jewish girls are obviously far from all the same...

Man, I've gone on a lot about myself here! A little unlike me....

This is really funny- fat black girls and you smiling in the face of criticism.

Just one thing:
"snobby, whiny pampered Jewish girls?!..." Nobody makes fun of my girlies that way.

"This is really funny- fat black girls and you smiling in the face of criticism."- Thank you.

"Nobody makes fun of my girlies that way"- Oh but aren't they my dear? Maybe 'yeshivish' girls are a little more, but..it's sort of cross spectrum...

Rachel said...

No, I would say I've seen just as many snobbish girls who weren't Jewish. Perhaps it has more to do with the American part?

Who's engaged?

Shriki-the "deep psychological" thing of you smiling in the face of criticism may be a nervous response. Nervous laughter (and in your case, a smile) is a fairly common reaction to criticism.

Could be totally off in your case, but think about it :)

The phenomenon has obvious reasons I know, I must have been under the influence of LSD when I wrote that (oh yeah..I wasn't..I'm just retarded..).

At The Seaside

(1)

When I was down beside the sea

A wooden spade they gave to me

To dig the sandy shore.

(2)

The holes were empty like a cup

In every hole the sea camp up,

Till it could come no more.
