People who are uppity make me laugh. If the term uppity is not in your vocabulary then I am not overly surprised. It is a term I used to refer to people who are overly tense, proper, look down their nose at you, and are generally judgemental.
I am not uppity - I am the complete opposite.
I have never understood the need to break another down to raise your self up in your own mind. I just do not get it. Uppity people get so worked up over things that really have no bearing on life in general.
I have tried to understand, I have tried to listen to see if I am missing out on a part of life by being so relaxed about stuff. I just can't seem to get worked up about what other people are wearing or how my friends actions make me look etc.
I have even tried to learn from the cast of all the 'Real Housewives' shows. I have decided that New Jersey was my favorite because they are hysterical. Then New York because of the Countess - lots of Uppity lessons from her. The OC because they live in their own little world and I think that it may be nice to visit. Now Atlanta is an odd collections of ladies. Then Vancouver started and I thought maybe I could relate to my Canadian peeps on the level of Uppity . . . oh my. I didn't even last an entire episode - not sure what they are drinking in the water in Vancouver on that side of town but wow . . . . I will skip it next time I visit.
So I go back to my non-uppity life and hang out and just generally exist. . . . one day maybe I will understand what I am missing.
