You pushy BITCH!

I was at lunch in the break-room and one Young Lady (dare I say, girl) was heating up her lunch. She had one of those Michelina's meals. They are pretty good for cheap frozen dinners. Someone started the conversation about asking her what she was eating. I noticed her open it and put in the microwave so...

YL: "I don't know, I just picked it up."
Me: "It is one of those Michelina's Manicotti dinners, they are pretty good."
Person 1: "What is a Manicotti?"
Me: "It is kind of like the Italian version of a cheese enchilada"
Woman: "Is is not! Manicotti is a tube and a Enchilada is a flat thing that is rolled up. They are nothing alike!"
Me: "If you look at the end results, they are both round, filled with cheese, and in a tomato based sauce."
Woman: "Well, you could kind of look at it that way, but they are completely different!"
YL to Woman: "I know that I have only been here at the office for a short time, but I have learned that there is really no point in arguing with Scott about anything."
YL to Me: "I hope I did not offend you, but I just not a confrontational person, it is not a bad thing about you, it is just that I think debating with someone is like beating against a brick wall, I would just rather so 'OK, you're right' then fight about it...."

I realize that what something does/doesn't resemble is a pretty petty issue. I know that I am very opinionated. I know that I like to debate issues. But am I really a Pushy, Close-mined Bitch that will not listen to reason? I guess I did not realize that I came off this way. The funny part of the situation want that the woman that so emphaticlly denied my comparison, continued to mutter about the complete difference of manicotti and enchilada as she left the break-room.

If only Celebrity Deathmatch was still on--I'd definitely tune in for the Manicotti vs. Enchilada bout.

Even if you are opinionated, then this was just the pot calling the kettle black. Wow, who cares whether manicotti/enchilada is an exact or vague comparison? It wasn't worth her stressing over. ;-)

Hmmmmmm...A flour based tube filled with meat and cheese covered with a tomato based sauce.....they both some similar to me...the only real dif is one is Italian and the other Mexican.....and really, that woman getting all keyed up over that, I would hate to see what she does with a real issue.
I would never believe that you were opinionated hunny.

Her brain would fry if you started to talk about a Mexican pasta dish like fideo.

I guess you are just much better at communication than I am...

You want to switch with me at work one day :)

I don't know you well enough to know how closed-minded (or not) you may be. I guess I'd just say . . . well, know that the way you come across to strangers includes some level of inflexibility regarding your opinions.

Thank you. on both accounts.

I have always thought that you were quite hansome! Unless it was the sling that you are drooling over, and then....

I still think you are handsome!

I will never make comparisons to food again. I will only talk about things that she has no knowledge of; religion, politics, environment.

I would have so completely said, "Oh, it's like a penis: long, cylindrical and full of creamy white stuff, which squirts out of it if you squeeze it just right..."

But that's just me...

What?

I don't like enchiladas and I do like manicotti. I'd have had to agree, IN NO CERTAIN WAY, with her just out of me thinking "shut the hell up, woman."

The sound of my eyes rolling would have been deafening.
