I was once having a conversation with a woman who was literally the most obnoxious woman I knew at the time. She had an impressive job, was well-respected in her field, active in her local church. She did a ton for charity and threw great parties in her large house.
But jeezum crow she was annoying and overbearing.
One time, she and I were talking about our minister.
"Oh, I think she's great," Obnoxious woman said. "But she's her own worst enemy sometimes."
"Well, aren't we all our own worst enemies?" CC asked.
"Why, no, I'm not my own worst enemy at all!" Obnoxious woman responded.
I was flat out amazed that she could have so little insight into herself. Of course, now that I think about it, the most obnoxious person I know now I think would also say that he isn't his own worst enemy. The second most obnoxious person I know right now would say that, too.
Perhaps there's something to that. We could call it the "Chalicechick Test for Obnoxiousness."
Do you pass?
