Drama queen

The classic example of a drama queen: Scarlett O'Hara in Gone with the Wind, pic: scarlettonline.com

Drama queens are a fairly common species and – contrary to popular belief – not all drama queens are female.  Drama queens come in all age groups and social strata.

Drama queens are overly dramatic – that is the politically correct way of saying it.  They tend to make a big deal out of unimportant things and take every opportunity to blow things out of proportion.  There is a good deal of self-centeredness in drama queens as the little things that get blown out of proportion are often rather irrelevant details or little misfortunes of their daily lives.

A drama queen rant might sound like that:

“I got to the restaurant and they did not have our table ready.  Can you believe that.  So we had to wait 10 minutes outside until we got seated.  That already totally ruined my mood and then the bread basket arrived like at least 5 minutes later.  we were basically starving at that point.  I’ll never go to that restaurant again, it is a total disgrace …”

The reasonable course of action is to stay away from drama queens as much as possible.  They have a tendency to ruin ones day.
