Like almost anything – school, family stuff, road trips - businesses have ups and downs. Well, today, was a low moment – a down day.  I’m so upset I can barely write.

When Kristen and I were waiting in line for four-square at recess, Nigel DeFault came and waited in line right behind us. That would be fine, except, it wasn’t – because he’s such a bully. Nigel overhead me and Kristen talking about her business . He got SUPER nosey and started asking all kinds of ridiculous questions about Kristen’s cookie business. Kristen was very nice and polite – she answered every one of his questions – like any strong, confident CEO. 

At one point, Kristen pointed to me and said she was super grateful I was helping her out. Nigel stepped back from us, pointed, and laughed. “Bea? Helpful? That’s hysterical!” he laughed. “Bea is for Business! It’s all just nonsense,” he said,  shaking his head back and forth. Some of the kids standing around us laughed with Nigel. Others just stood there awkwardly. I stood there SUPER awkwardly.
Because I felt silly. I felt stupid. And I felt mad. I wanted to crawl in a hole.

So, needless to say, I don’t even know what else to say. I’m just so down in the dumps.

Does that kind of thing ever happen to you?
