People Suck!

Thursday, September 13, 2012

...well some people suck...in all my 50+ years I have never been as insulted as I was today.

My life is crazy busy, working full-time, mother, wife and dealing with a husband that is ill. On top of all this I'm also working very hard to eat well and get to the gym.

At lunch I ran out to pick up a few items that we needed at home beats having to stop at the grocery store after work. There I am minding my own business, waiting on this lady to finish picking up the flexseeds so that I can grab a bag...another item in my eating plan to promote good health. She took two bags and started to put a 3rd on in her cart when she suddenly step away and said "I'm afraid of someone your size" Really! This was a perfect stranger. Mind you I'm a happy person, I don't walk around agree or scowling at people. I'm the type of person who would be one of the first to help a stranger, I have never been prone to violence ... not my nature.

Needless to say this has really thrown me for a loop, what is wrong with people? The irony is that she was not exactly a skinny mini herself...

I didnt run out a buy a snickers bar...if anything my resolve to stay on track is strong as ever...I really needed to vent!!!!!

Good night!

    Don't let it bother you. It is her problem, not yours. She feels insecure and needs to push others around.

    I agree with Monty, she must have mental issues, nobody says that even if they think it. (I don't think it!) Great for your resolve to be healthy! Don't worry about it, feel sorry for her and go on. Easier said than done, I know.

    Think about it! This "person" obviously has serious issues! Besides being totally ignorant and socially unacceptable, she must have a hard time living! I love BEINGGUIDED's reply! Don't let people like this bring you down. In fact, don't let anyone take you down! Stay strong, stay focused, and embrace life!

As an afterthought, you probably handled it better than me! I would have gone medieval on her ...... (Think positive waves! Breathe!)

    Must be my personality, but I would have said "Yea you should be! Flaxseed has been working wonders for my muscle growth."

That lady is a moron. The world is full of them. Just keep on truckin' and forget her foolishness.

    I am so sorry that this happened to you. Something similar happened to me once, and you never truly get over it. Please put this person in the place of your mind where she belongs and try not think of it anymore. emoticon

    I think it must be a time for really rude people to come out. There was another SP friend that had 1 to. I am sorry that thay were so mean, but I want to say I think your doing great, because of the last thing that you said (I didnt run out a buy a snickers bar...if anything my resolve to stay on track is strong as ever...I really needed to vent!!!!! ) It shows that even when people are dumb, we are stronger and we can go on without hurting ourselves. With food. I want to thank you and all the SP friends that I am learning from. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Your emoticon emoticon emoticon

    It must be 'be nasty and rude to others' week. I had someone make rude comments to me this week too. It hurts. Sorry you had to endure that. Some people are just weird, sad, rude, hurting, miserable, angry, ignorant, antagonistic or any combination of the list.

Know that you are making strides to better health and making healthy decisions. (love flax seeds myself!) --- And, in response to their comments you didn't sabotage yourself with an item that doesn't fit into your plan. emoticon

Shake it off and remember --- You are worth it and special.

    It was extremely rude and there's no acceptable excuse for her behavior ... perhaps she should be shopping for a laxative instead of flax seeds because she sounds like she's certainly full of ... okay, taking the high road here! LOL

    She truly was rude. Perhaps she has deep seeded issues and takes them out on people who are not as skinny as she.

    WHEN PEOPLE DO STUPID THINGS LIKE THAT THEY ARE USUALLY UNHAPPY WITH THEIR SELVES OR LIVE AN UNHAPPY LIFE, IT WAS VERY RUDE AND CONSIDERATE OF HER, AND I TOO HAVE HAD TO DEAL WITH LOTS OF RUDE COMMENTS LIKE THAT, SOUNDS LIKE YOU STOOD STRONG, KEEP YOUR CHIN UP

    Manners these days is sorely lacking....She is the one with the problem, certainly not you! You kept your cool...I'm not sure that if she had said that to me I would have given her a tongue lashing with a 'kiss my butt' and 'step out of the way B'...
Good that you didn't let her comment bring you down. Keep up the good work!

    Wow, what an unexpected thing for someone to say! Once when I was with my family at a pool, a total stranger told me that my husband and I were the worst parents she'd ever seen. We were baffled. Here we were on a family vacation with our little ones. We'd been in the pool with them a long time, but we took abreak and made them wear tubes around their middles while they played in the pool under our supervision (they weren't very old, not really swimmers, and liked jumping in the deep end). It was a running joke for years how we were the worst parents ever.

It's good you didn't let that crazy lady's comment send you off your program. She's the one with the problem. Keep on sparking and enjoy your flax seeds!
