Give Her A Break!

Well, Brick is definitely obnoxious and self-obsessed, but she does bring up an interesting point: the competitive/cruel jealousy of women. The way she wrote about it wasn’t the most tactful or appealing, but that’s because she was only focused on her own personal experiences and she didn’t relate it to the broader picture. But it is a fact: women (actually almost everyone) can let their jealousy get the best of them and act hostile towards others simply based on their own insecurities. So, although Samantha Brick is certainly annoying, she does bring up an interesting issue. You hope people can grow out of their mean middle school ways, but sometimes they don’t, and that’s when this type of immature behavior seeps into adult relationships and the business world— And that’s kind of disturbing.. All in all, if you read between the lines of her article, women are probably mean to her simply because they don’t like her. But that’s why you teach kids the golden rule: treat others the way you want to be treated. And just because the women in her life don’t like her (which is probably understandable), that’s no excuse to be mean to her. I say give her a break. Although she’s not humble in any way, well, at least the woman has confidence and there’s something to be said for that.
Dear Give her a break,
You say, Samantha Brick “wasn’t the most tactful or appealing…” “Samantha Brick is certainly annoying” “she’s not humble in any way…” But yet  “give her a break”
Asklotta and Staff absolutely love this opportunity to MIND YOUR BUSINESS by responding! 
“Jane, you ignorant slut” Sorry, I couldn’t help myself. I am still bent over laughing so hard (can not even see my computer) one of the best lines in television history!  The 1975 Saturday Night Live skit (see link below) Point Counterpoint with Jane Curtin and Dan Aykrod: Lee Marvin – Michelle Triola” Please please PLEASE cut and paste, you will not be able to stop laughing! 
All righty now… I’ve regained my composer and standing straight up in a yummy pair of Chanel black stilettos heels (are you jealous?) with only beautiful thoughts of you!  But unfortunately you’re a bit misguided and way off course; your sweet side is over riding your intelligent side.  
Please know, you can be drop dead gorgeous without going on national television claiming the “women universe” is against you all due to your beauty and damning all those men with gifts. How dare they impose kindness, generosity and some fun on a helpless female, without (of course) any provoking or hints of flirting from Ms. Brick….The Brooklyn Bridge is also for sale too!
Asklotta wants to remind you of a lovely saying, “If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck…it’s a duck.” …Ms. Brick is a duck!
But with all that said, you are wasting your kindness, energy and defense on Samantha Brick, makes me wonder if you opened a bottle of chardonnay before writing me? Cheers!
There are women worthy of your kindness, empathy and understanding (but not her).  I’m somewhat less then amused with your reasoning; you are discrediting some very important adjectives when describing Ms. Brick. I hope you don’t use the same mythology with the men you date…selfish, annoying, not humble but yet I’m going to give him a break.  Pleeeessse you can dropkick their very sorry A$$ to the curb and stay as far away from the likes of them as you possible can!
Furthermore you are also misusing the word self-confidence. It is not self-confidence when the behavior is nothing more then arrogant. In fact arrogance is nothing more then a display of low self esteem! She needed the world to validate her. Narcissistic; “unhealthy self-absorption due to a disturbance in the sense of self…grandiose sense of self-worth.” “Totally absorbed in self…people are things to be used.” Sounds like anyone you know?
(My mother always said, “If you’re truly a confident person, the kinder you will be to others.”)
I know women face and deal with mean, nasty and very unfair behavior from other women as well as from men and Ms. Brick did nothing to help any of those women and very possibly could have made life a little more difficult for many of them.
Again, it has been my pleasure to tell you what to do and what NOT to do!
Kindest regards,
President and CEO
