We all have encounter such people in our lives whether they are family, friends, coworkers, relatives, bosses, and acquaintances. You know the type these people must have a consistent whirlwind of melodramatics in their lives. Yes, they are the drama kings and queens. They must always make a SCENE. In fact, I strongly believe that they missed their true calling- being actors for pay. Let me not digress. They are actors and they consider YOU their public. They maintain that it is your duty to assuage their ego! Well, balderdash and give them a sock in the nose! What was your response to the drama king and/or drama queein in your life?
My mother was like that, but only when she didn't get her own way. Even as a child I just shrugged it off. As the other adults in my life were solid and normal, I was generally able to brush off all of her oddities without being too bothered by it.
