Rudeness does not become me

Ai jirrie. I’ve done it again. Just when I’ve convinced people I’m a nice person I go and do something that makes me want to slap myself.I didn’t mean to, of course. I never do.
But that just makes it worse, in a way.
Zee and I usually have coffee in the morning before work. We’ve been doing it for ages and I relish the brief catch-up sessions over a cup of hot black coffee.
So this morning I did what I always do – I called her to let her know I’m going to the coffeeshop. But she didn’t answer. Annoying Girl, who I’ve written about before, did. This is how it went down.

AG: Zee’s phone, hello.
Me: Oh, um, where’s Zee?
AG: She’s on leave today. But I’m available for coffee.
Me: Oh, no it’s okay. *mental slap against the head for being so blunt*
AG: Oh, er, um, hoe kan jy dit sê?
Me: *trying to save the awkward moment* Don’t make a person feel guilty please. I’ve nogal got work to do so I think I’ll just get to it.
AG: *silence*
Me: Well, um, ok then. Sorry ‘bout that. Got so much to do you know…
AG: *more silence*  Ok then. 

I felt like such an ass. I didn’t mean to be so rude, it came out without thinking. I’ve got a serious foot-in-mouth vibe going on this week.
She’s been giving me the cold shoulder (which, believe me, is not a bad thing!) but I can’t believe she had the audacity to invite herself to coffee. Some people.
