Do you ever feel invisible, ignored, disregarded. This is something
I have had to deal with for most of my adult life. It makes you question where you come in the pecking order, question whether you are in fact inferior to others?
Do we have a pecking order in our society? Sometimes personally I feel like we do. Today I was briefly reminded of my pecking order. There I was, a grown albeit vertically challenged woman, two babies in my arms. Signing my biggest into play for the day. As usual my heart was breaking as he clung to my leg whimpering for me to stay, while his heavy little brother was perched upon my hip trying to pull my hair out. I am flicking through the folder looking for his name. Suddenly I am swooped from behind. a much taller and much more glamorous woman. Do you not see me, or my two babies hanging, from my short frame? The glamazon was trying to sign in her own precious darling over my head. Admittedly, she did stop when she realised how rude she was being, but not a word of apology was uttered from her plumped up mouth.
I was reminded of a time back when I had a social life while ordering a drink at a bar. I am standing patiently waiting my turn while the extremely thirsty hordes where being served around me.
A giant man stood behind me, leaned over my short self and ordered himself a lovely refreshment.
I turned around to face his crotch and give him piece of my mind, needless to say he just laughed and told me to calm down.
So where do I fit in the food chain? After all big fish eat little fish.
However, it is the little fish that will be left as the big fish are taken for trophies.
