This is more of a vent (sort of) than a rant... There is A LOT more behind this, but in short: We have a small boarding/lesson barn (horses). We recently lost a boarder, mainly because her kid lied to her parents about me (the trainer) and they moved their horse down the road. They left on bad terms when then shorted us money that was supposed to be paid (in their signed contract) for not giving us notice that they were leaving, then changed their pick-up date to an earlier day without telling us (lying to their new trainer that this was ok with us). After that, they came back scrounging for something that got misplaced - meaning their kid is very irresponsible and didn't put her stuff back. EVER. She called, but didn't leave a message, and just showed up. God only knows where it ended up(luckily my mom was home at the time, and didn't allow them in the barn). Anyway...Now that you have a little background... I walk my dogs every night after I am done with evening chores - this is usually before said old boarder drives home from her new barn. So tonight I was running a little later than usual - I moved horse fencing around for grazing, and left an hour later than I normally do. I'm on my way back to the house, and guess who drives by? Old boarder. I don't have a problem with that. I mean, obviously they are going to drive by, the other barn is right down the road from here..it was her actions that did it for me... She was classy enough to flip me off on her way by (and probably stuck her tongue out too, that's what it looked like anyway...Should give you a better idea of who I'm dealing with). Seriously, who does that? Even better, she is teaching these "wrong" behaviors to her 2 daughters (teenager, and one is a little younger than that). Just what we need more of in this world. As a note: I have no need to bother with people like this. I don't encourage her by doing it back, and I don't go out of my way to screw with her, so why does she feel the need to act like a dumb teenager and do that to me? Am I the only one that would be bothered by this? I really didn't (and still don't) have a problem with them - I'm not holding a grudge anyway. Why do they think they have the right to flip me off when I'm minding my own business, in my own neighborhood?
