F*** You!

I don't know if this is something that happens to everyone or just me. Whenever I voice an opinion or complain about something people feel the need to tell me how wrong I am. My mother did it to me. An example that springs to mind is when I told her I no longer wanted to see the boy I'd been dating for the past few weeks. He was my first boyfriend and at 16 I wasn't ready for sex but this guy was all hands and tongue. My mother told me I should give him another chance because he seemed like a nice boy to her. I was too embarrassed to tell her why I didn't want to go out with him again and she never asked but why would she think I should date someone I didn't like? F*** you Mom.

I reconnected with my best friend from elementary school a few years ago. She asked what I was doing and when I told her about my knit designing, knitting, spinning and selling my wares on line and at a craft market she acted like I had wasted my life and wanted to know if I had thought about furthering my education or volunteering my time to those less fortunate. F*** you former best friend.

Today I was complaining about the 25% increase in the craft market fees and my husband starts lecturing me on how the organizers costs have probably gone up too so I shouldn't be moaning about it. This sort of thing happens a lot and now I find myself thinking about what he will say if I open my mouth. Well, f*** you too husband.

You aren't going to appreciate this comment, but when the common denominator is one's self, that's the first place to look for the issue. I'll go out on a limb with virtually no information and suggest that maybe others think they are having a conversation but you're hearing a challenge. Your reply here will tell a big part of the story.

You could use a good comeback or reply for these moments of disrespect. For instance, if you complain of something and the other person doesn’t like it, take the wind out of their sails and agree with them. Tell them you will do something instead of just talking about it. (Because your complaint was valid.)

Sometimes life just sucks, Janet. I hear a lot of sad stories but no one ever listens to mine.

It happens to me, too. Mr. Troutbend has learned to just listen and not comment, plus we live apart 9 months out of the year, but there's still all those other people.
