Tact. I have none. Seriously, none. What I think is what you get, be it rude or nice, there are no pretenses. This is not good. One needs to practise at least some level of tactfulness in order to succeed in this world. Rolling my eyes and and shaking my head at everyone who I think is being dumb does not get me very far with my boss, my parents, my coworkers...see how this could become a problem???
Lately I have taken to calling men pigs. To their faces. They are being pigs, but does that mean I have to tell them they are being pigs? No...but I do. Scarlett O'Hara would not have called them pigs, she may have thought it, but never would have said it. She has become my tact level role model. The character certainly doesn't think tactfully, but she has this amazing ability to bat her eyelashes and say just the right thing and get what she wants. This is the goal, to get everything I want. I will never be the type of person who thinks tactfully, but I hope to be the person who can at least speak tactfully. Fake it until you make it.
So the next time a guy is acting like a pig, instead of rolling my eyes and informing them just how big of a pig I think they are being, I instead will smile and giggle, and say, " Oh, you are just so funny". Oh, and bat my eyelashes, I can't forget to bat my eyelashes, I am thinking this is an important step. Though, I will probably end up looking like a fool with something in my eye.
