Anger Mgmt 101


Today at work I had a good laugh. One of the male security guards actually went to one of our Lady Shop Stewards to complain that his feelings were hurt because I stop speaking to him. I nearly burst out laughing but I managed to contain my chuckles because dickhead knew very well why I stopped speaking to him.

After a prior incident where he not only insulted me but had nerve to do it in front of the visitors well I blasted him good. My initials stand for Don’t Play. This is a job where we are required to be professional. If you got beef with me you need to talk to me in private not in front of the general public.  I warned him then and there that I don’t know who you think you’re talking to but you picked the wrong one. Unfortunately if you work in a department that’s mostly male you’re gonna have men who challenge you or attempt to intimidate you.

I don’t do challenge or intimidation. Just because you’re a man does not make you better or smarter than me. Since his dumb ass is not a supervisor you need to watch what you say to me. Even if you are a supervisor if you talk out of turn I’m gonna speak up for myself.

I’m one that once you mess with me unless you apologize I’m not forgiving you. Fuck Forgiveness. Fuck Feelings. Wrong Female. I don’t owe you anything. There is No Love nor Light. The only Light you will get from me is when I Light your ass up! And that’s not a Light you want to experience. I Do Not Tolerate any disrespect from anybody. It’s that simple!!

Mable and Edward Palmer did not raise me to be a doormat. In fact my parents told me not to take crap off anyone and that I had a right to defend myself.

Mr. Angry Asshole had offended several co-workers and many stopped talking to him. Many years ago he was demoted from a higher security position because of his temper. His anger has gotten the better of him to the point that he has had several heart attacks. At least one on the premises and he is not even 50 years old!

I think he feels I should and I must converse with him because we are both Veterans. Well I’m a Veteran all he is and was what we in the Military call Weekend Warriors. Meaning he was in the Reserves. One weekend out of the month and two weeks out of the year of actual service. I was in four years full-time, 24/7/365.

Just to show you how truly nasty Mr. Numb-nuts is we have a gentleman who is also a security officer who served bravely during the Vietnam War. This wonderful man actually saw action. He suffers from PTSD but goes out of his way to be extra nice to all our co-workers. He is a pleasure to work with. He follows the Catholic faith always with his prayer beads and follows Jesus teachings. Everyone Loves him.  Except one person. Guess who? You guessed right! Private Jackass.  The Lumpy Paleface Lunatic actually had the nerve to badmouth a great man who went through the trauma of seeing people killed and trying to save the lives of wounded soldiers (he was a medic).

As for Knucklehead most of the guards try to avoid him. He has very few friends. Not many will put up with his rude, nasty, sarcastic remarks. I’m all for humor, cracking jokes and laughter but making fun of people, insults, lack of proper communication skills and zero people skills are not acceptable.

I have not guilt nor shame in cutting ties with abusive co-workers.  That person does not write my checks nor are they paying my bills. Forgive and Forget don’t work here.  I will dismiss you and keep on stepping. I have no shame in my game.

Close Encounters of the Wrong Kind


Wednesday evening on the C train riding home from work

The creepy uneasy feeling you get when a big overgrown palooka with three shopping bags sits next to you on the C train. He tries to catch my eye. I knew what he was doing but refused to look at him. Another member of the Lunatic Fringe. I scrolled to a photo of my Dad on my cell phone hoping he would think that’s my boyfriend. Then the seat across from me becomes vacant. He plops his Jabba the Hut butt on the seat and gives me a smile. I gave him a very weak smile in return but continued to listen to my music.

After a while Mr. Doofus began laughing at some scene taking place outside on the platform probably known only to him because the other passengers on the train did not turn to look. Probably a ploy to engage me in conversation. Wide open laughter. Bad teeth. Snagglepuss. Him need dentist badly. However praise be to the subway train gods he got off at Jay Street Metro and lumbered his big red suede shoe wearing hippo pot ass off into the maze of commuters. Whew!!!! Bye. Bye. Blubbermass!!

The Good Fight

When my Dad Edward G. Palmer passed away May 13th, 1995 this is the scripture I chose for his prayer cards.

2 Timothy 4:7-8

King James Version (KJV)

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:

Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.


For my Mom Mable E. Palmer’s passing in August 1998 I selected the 23rd Psalm.  The Virtuous Woman in Proverbs 31: 10-31 also describes my Mom perfectly.

I can only hope when my time comes and I pass from labor to reward both these scriptures will be used to describe my existence on this earth. I hope that I embody both of these character traits of my mother and father.

Neither of my parents was what you’d call religious. They were not church goers but they did believe in God, honesty, discipline, hard work and faithfulness. My Mom and Dad were married for 40 years. I used to be a regular pew-sitter but after my last Aunt died in 2010 I had to ask myself why am I going to church and what good is it doing for me?  Or rather who am I fooling? Not God because the Creator knows the creation.

It finally dawned on me that God is not within the four walls of a building. For me personally I find God within Nature. When the weather permits I try to get to some green space to commune with God’s creation.  If nothing else for whatever time I have left on this earth I want to be open, authentic and honest with myself if only for peace of mind.

Proverbs 31:10-31

King James Version (KJV)

10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

14 She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.

15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.

20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.

23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.

24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth theLord, she shall be praised.

31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.




Black Jesus

Jesus in the Box Christians


Jesus in the Box Christians

I just “Love” these Jesus in the Box Christians. Especially men. They friend you on FB claiming a shared interest in writing, photography or the Bible. You check out their FB page and it has all sorts of Bible, Jesus and Christian quotes. The next thing you know they send you a Private Message which is actually a proposition. Now the most recent Jesus in the Box fool is from the United Kingdom, Yes Great Britain. The same Great Britain that just Brexit from the European Union. Hmmm….

Guess Christianity was okay when you were colonizing Africa and enslaving my ancestors and it works well for you as you blame immigrants for your economic problems yet it’s okay to put Jesus back in his box when you want to fulfill some sort of Chocolate fantasy. Got your number! Up yours buddy and take your white Euro-Centric Jesus with you on your way out the door!! The Life of a writer complete with freaky ass fans. BTW how is Brexit working out for you?

Let’s not let Americans off the hook. I notice Americans of European descent are eager to pull Jesus out of the box along with Dr. King after each non-stop killings of Black people. Very convenient and handy is Jesus when directed at Blacks. For some reason Blacks are always at fault. We are the error. We are to blame.

These same white Christians cheer on Donald Trump and his evil race baiting rhetoric.

Muslims offend them but not the KKK, the American Nazi Party or the Christian Identity Movement.

Does make me wonder what Bible these people are reading and how do they think that Jesus a brown-skinned Sephardic Jew would approve of any of their actions?

But as we all know 11:00 am Sunday morning is the most biased and separate in America.

With your answers, please remember we are in the SYW world which may not always match our reality.

Do you prefer a bath or shower?

Shower. Since I work full-time showers are faster. Usually when I must take Epsom Salt Baths it means my joints are really swollen and painful or I have a cold or sinus infection.

If you had an unlimited shopping spree at only one store, which one would you choose? Why?

Lord & Taylor!! Love that store!!  When I was younger and making a much better and bigger salary L&T was my place to go for clothes!  I was a real Close Horse!! I still Love to dress up but my budget does not allow for L&T except to buy underwear so I go to discount stores.

If you could be one age for the rest of your life, what age would that be?

I would love to have the body and great health of my 20s with the Wisdom of my 50s!!
