    I was doing business with a client today
    Who was not very liberated I must say
    His words left me burning all up round
    my ears
    My eye's were burning with angry tears
    I worked to hard to gain respect, to gain
    a reputation among my peers...but this
    here...Just got me thinking.
    Who do these people think they are?
    I am a 'GROWN *** WOMAN"

    Now don't get me wrong I respect all
    men who are worthy.
    But, if you come wrong or foul you get
    a look that is downright dirty.
    And the words that might come to some
    may not be what you want to hear...
    I am a "GROWN *** WOMAN".

    Some people treat us like we still need some
    special treatment...now I am sorry if I am
    showing resentment. I been independent
    since I was 18. Bought my first home when
    I was 33. Lived there until I had enough of
    a man not being a man, around the house.
    So I closed up shop and sent the bullshyt
    down south.
    I am a "GROWN *** WOMAN"!

    The chip on my shoulder that was falling away
    found it's way back up on my shoulder today.
    Some of the things I have to endure ,because
    I chose to be an entrepreneur. Didn't like folks
    telling me what to do 40 hours a week and not
    even giving me equal time in which to speak.
    I got damned tired and I am getting there again.
    But, it's just to much money to spit on my friend.
    So I write until the emotions subside.
    And reschedule my meeting about this diatribe.
    CUZ
    I am a "GROWN *** WOMAN" and I can do that!

    He asked if he said something wrong.
    I kept my poker face on and proceeded to call
    myself on the phone...Maybe it's just a cultural
    issue...And Homeland brother's got to deal with,
    doing business in a modern world.
    And for God sake and yours don't make the mistake
    of calling me girl!
    CUZ
    I am a "GROWN *** WOMAN"!
    So that this miscegenistic pig would leave me alone.:nono: :nono: :nono:

    Girl some folks take xanax and valium, I write! I am cool!

    I am alright! He just got all wound up about some details and
    then insulted my company by implying that the job was to big
    for us. You can say what you want about me!
    But my Momma, my children and my dog and Company, not necessarily in that order and you bring down the sho nuff wrath!
    But, thanks for taking time from your busy schedule to get with me...You arejust a 'DELIGHT'!
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!
