The tests say...
1. I'm a leader - Okay well duh. I'm the first born child. I'm the first born daughter. My dad didn't treat me like a pansy and I had to work after school from the time I was 13 years old until I was able to stop working to care for my children at home. (helloooo still working) Okay. I'll admit it. I'm a leader.
2. I Don't have much sympathy for problems people bring on themselves - Okay, I admit this too. Look, I grew up poor but not so poor that I lost my dignity. My parents worked their BUTTS off to give my brother and I a great life with a secure home and food on the table. They showed us what love and hard work can do for the soul and I take that very seriously. The only time I can remember my dad not working was when my father hurt his back terribly when a hole caved in on him during a construction job. He was lucky to come out alive. Did my parents go out asking every Tom, Dick and Harry for food and money when that happened? NO! My mom worked, and my dad got back on his feet within a few weeks, even though he should have stayed in bed for a few months, and he worked in pain for years! So, the tests are right. I don't give out much sympathy for those who can work, refuse to get a job and then sit around whining that they have no money because God isn't providing it. If you can say, "May I take your order" you can work to bring money into your home to feed the children God blessed you with!!
3. I Am Loyal To My Family to the Point that I will fight for them - Well, let's see. When I was a teenager, a pre-teen boy was throwing nails at my little brother. The next thing I knew that kid was dangling off the porch and promptly falling from a height that should have at least sprained an ankle. I didn't even know it was possible to carry a kid nearly my height with one hand. hmm... I had a nice little cushy job as a receptionist once. I was making $13.00 per hour answering phones and chatting with clients. My dad got a job there and had to have by-pass surgery just before his one year of employment was up. They let him go the day after his surgery over the phone. I let them go that day too...over the phone. hmmm... One time a hooker had picked our street to hop into a john's car. My kids were on the sidewalk when I saw it happen and I ran out there, freaked out on her hiney and told the John that I had better not see his car near my kids again or he'll see the end of our shot gun. hmmm... I might be a tad-bid loyal to my family. Honestly, if someone says one thing against my husband...at all...in any way, shape or form...they're not my friend anymore. They can never come back from that. It's just something those who care to know may want to keep in mind.
So, I'm thinking that these little online personality tests may be on to something. Though, I'd have to grow a beard and do some heavy explaining to believe that I should be the person the following test says I should be. Why can't they just say...a very loyal, strong mom? Is that so hard to believe?
There you have it. So, sue me. This is the way God made me...AS A WOMAN!
