The art of pissing off people- how to undo?

Why am I so good at pissing people off? Why do I always need to speak my mind? Argh! not that I hate being sugary sweet, but that doesn’t come naturally to me. But some how, after all these years of ‘experience’ I  feel that being fake is a virtue.
But the case (or rather cases) in question does not even require me to be fake, just to be a little sane. I had once almost lost a dear friend because of my habit of being outspoken. It took me time and patience to understand that just because I hated his girlfriend did not imply that he will stop dating her or for that matter our friendship will take a toll. Thank god! he knew me well and he eventually replied back to the sorry mail I sent him. See! I am not that bad too. I write rants on my blog and send you cute notes in case I feel sorry. At least I know how to acknowledge my mistake *gives a humble smile*

But then again, this time the person in question is not even someone whom I can send a cute note to or for that matter confront him/her in the dining table or hostel and force him or her to talk to me until and unless he/she laughs and says “maatey samajh gaye hum, bohot hua”. I can be the biggest yawn machine and bak bak queen at the same time. But then again, that’s how my friends know me and in case am silent for fifteen minutes, they make sure am ok. Happened once. My silence for two days made them ask me stuff like “Paush, chal tujhe ice cream khilatey hain” 😛
And I digress! I talk so much. But the point is how do I say sorry or atleast make an effort to bring back the situation prior to this stuff happened in place. Well nothing in particular happened, but I suppose I took too many liberties as I do with friends, which I feel I shouldn’t have and then somewhere was rude. Don’t know, am not feeling good about it. Nothing affects my mood for long, but this one is….an uneasy feeling. For someone I hardly know, that’s quite unthinkable… guess! this goes with my habit of abhorring the thought of not being able to talk to someone properly or that there is a misunderstanding somewhere. Don’t we all like to set the creases right?
Only in this case I don’t even know what will work? Ice cream, leg pulling, music, poetry, jhogra or bong mishti? any ideas?

  1. send the person a mail. onek shomoy shob kichu shamna shamni bola jay na. my personal experiences tell me that a mail works best, especially if you word it right. also, be sure in your own mind that tui besh bhabchish na….thats 1 mistake i often make with friends…think that sum friends are upset with me, only to discover that i was wrong.
