Just what you needed today: three steps for becoming a Crabby Lady. It doesn't take much effort, because crabbiness comes naturally or is easily mastered. 1. Have adult temper tantrums when things don't go your way. 2. Keep telling yourself that other people are really the source of all your problems. 3. Catalog your hurt feelings. Be sure to alphabetize them for easier access. Crabbiness is such an easy habit to develop, but it's not a desirable way to live. Just like that crab on the sand, we could hurt someone with our snappiness. When we pinch people with words, they move away. Are we really intending to become repellant? Crabbing at people will achieve this goal, even if it's unintended. It's not a problem when we have an occasional day that's just a bit "off character," but when it becomes our only mode of operating, it's time to evaluate what's truly bothering us. Are you sniping because you hate your job?
