Yesterday, when I was expressing my feelings, somebody told me I had “attitude.”
What is the dictionary’s attitude about the word “attitude”?
1. a settled way of thinking or feeling about someone or something, typically one that is reflected in a person’s behavior.
“she took a tough attitude toward other people’s indulgences”
synonyms: view, viewpoint, outlook, perspective, stance, standpoint, position, inclination, temper, orientation, approach, reaction.
2. a position of the body proper to or implying an action or mental state.
“the boy was standing in an attitude of despair, his chin sunk on his chest”
synonyms: position, posture, pose, stance, bearing
“an attitude of prayer”
3. NORTH AMERICAN (informal)
truculent or uncooperative behavior; a resentful or antagonistic manner.
“I asked the waiter for a clean fork, and all I got was attitude”
Since I was in North America being told by a North American that I had attitude yesterday, it’s possible that I was exhibiting truculent or uncooperative behavior and a resentful or antagonistic manner.
Here’s my attitude about that: We’re all allowed to have attitude, sometimes.
Here’s my beloved friend, Barbara, showing a welcoming attitude:
Is there attitude in my other photos from yesterday?
I have an attitude of hope that you’ll express your attitude in a comment, below.
As always, I end with a gratitude attitude for all who helped me create this post with attitude and for you — of course! — no matter what attitude you have, here and now.
