I love the fact that I am a laid back, easy-going person. It’s one of my favorite things about myself. So I get a bit defensive when someone calls me high maintenance.
I mean sure, I have lengthy conversations with the wait staff at restaurants, but I have some food intolerances, and I hate when people sit directly behind me in an empty movie theatre. (Don’t they know about personal space?)
And I am very particular about which songs go on my iPod, but who wants to listen to mediocre music? For that matter, I don’t want to watch mediocre TV either, so I will usually be the one to decide what we watch.
I shop at one grocery store, one coffee shop, one gas station and one deli, but only because I am a loyal customer, certainly not from any irrational fears of venturing outside of my comfort zone.
And I’m outgoing and friendly, which goes along with my easy-going, laid back personality. Unless, of course, I’m feeling angry, bored, frustrated or generally pissed off. Then its best to stay clear until it passes.
No, I am definitely not high maintenance…
