Being a Belle is hard work sometimes. We are raised to have certain standards and expect the rest of the world to have them also. So many of them are unspoken and we’ve learned them through osmosis from being raised by other Belles.
You’d think, at my age I’d know that not all people have those same standards, even if they’re from the South. It’s a lesson that I really need to work on learning.
Recently someone did something so outrageous and out of line it left me floored for weeks. (3 to be exact). What do I do now? Use the age old passive-aggressive Southern Belle way? Ignore it and hope it goes away? Throw a hissy fit and make everyone in the world aware of the transgression? All are acceptable Belle behavior in dealing with things like this.
I’ve chosen to handle it with Southern Charm and grace and be classy about it. Till that doesn’t work and then I’ll throw a hissy fit.
