She forced me, and I had to do it for the good of all

I unleashed THE LOOK at a woman today. You know the one, the withering "ORLY" look. We went to a horse expo today and there was a short presentation by Richard Shrake in a small auditorium, one that seats maybe 500 people. Anyway, he is in the round pen speaking and this lady's cell phone rings behind us. Totally oblivious, she starts chattering loudly "Oh I'm at the Expo and attending a clinic by..." you get the idea. Of it's own accord my head swiveled around backwards and I gave her a look that would have killed a snake. she stuttered and told the person "I can't talk right now". The people all around us smirked and nodded my way. I hate rude people.

We grow too soon old, and too late smart.

Inconsiderate peops! She deserved your "Orly" look for sure.

It just frosted me that someone thinks it's a good idea to go to a seminar and then talk on her phone rather than listen to the speaker...arrgh.

People do stuff like that because most people won't say anything and will just suffer in silence.

Good for you!!

That is awesome! Good for you! Wish I had the guts to do that LOL

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

it was just a reaction, I didn't even think about it. I paid good money to be there and dang it I was going to hear what the man had to say.

I hate to admit it but I have been known to shoot daggers with my eye balls. Rude people really get to me. I try to be overly considerate so it always upsets when others aren't.
