Why People Hate Me

By Expatmum @tonihargis
I'm brilliant!
Apparently just saying it makes it true. Everyone knows it and everyone's jealous. Oh, yes and anyone who denies my brilliance is just reinforcing my statement that everyone's jealous of me. (Still with me?)
Why People Hate Me
A few days ago in the Daily Mail, (come on, it can't just be my dirty little secret) a moderately attractive woman, Samantha Brick (so many jokes there) claimed that other women hate her because she's so beautiful. Like many, I initially assumed that the DM had posted the wrong photo with the article. Yes, the woman is pretty, but you'd pass her in the street. Not according to Ms. Brick though - she gets freebies all the time from smitten men, and is treated appallingly by most women who can't stand her standing next to them. 
Despite the Twitter world lighting up in hysterics, asking the woman what planet she's on, and much much worse, she's sticking to her original statement that she's so beautiful she causes most of us females to act like total bee-atches when she's around. I have to admit, she's being very clever with it - "While I've been shocked and hurt by the global condemnation, I have just this to say: my detractors have simply proved my point. Their level of anger only underlines that no one in this world is more reviled that a pretty woman".
So, I'll just say it again "I'm so brilliant; particularly in the writing field, which is why I only have one book out at the moment. Other writers are in cahoots with their agents and publishers the world over, to stop me getting my work out to my readers. They're jealous and afraid of my potential sales figures."
Excuse me while I head over to Tweet this, and just remember that if you deny it, it makes it even more true.
Because I said so!
