Being judged unfairly by people with an agenda.

Oh, yes Chickie, especially by them.

People who don't read the "DAY SLEEPER" signs and ring the bell to sell you something.  AND telemarketers that do not understand the phrase
"NO, please take this number OFF your call list"and argue with you about doing it.

My inability to remember names to faces.  I just hate that about myself.

Oh, and know-it-all, spoiled brats of ANY age.

My biggest pet peeve would be inconsiderate people who say and do thing without considering the feelings of others.

For example; things people have said to me after the death of my son leaves me speechless. One lady told me I was lucky to loose my only child because at least now I don't have to worry about any children. Another lady told me it is not normal for a mother to grieve after 3 months.

What is your pet peeve?

Oh!! my goodness, Invisible......those statements are not from a well meaning friend/friends.  Those are from people who are dumb as stumps.  How could they say those things to you?

Not normal to grieve?  That is so abnormal that you have to wonder about that friend.  I'd say that's not a friend but a mutation.

"Don't have to worry about any children?"  Are you kidding me?  I can't believe the gall of someone saying that to you after you lost your son!!

Invisable, after reading this, I'm sitting here looking just like the icon you've chosen

I cannot believe these people came out with something like that?  I mean, I do know that people get very nervous in these situations and don't know what to say, and sometimes, say the wrong things, but, this?????? My God?  I can't believe people are so incensitive...unreal!

manipulative people, inconsiderate people, emotionally unstable people and oh yeah.... SPOILED BRATS!

Dirty clothes left on the floor are not really my thing either - but I would choose that over emotionally unstable any day!

Oh yes.....one neighbor told me she knew how I felt to lose a child, because she lost her dog once.....for a few days.

I know our animals seem to become members of our family. I have a dog and yes, I love him....however, I am sorry, losing a dog or cat is not the same.

People don't know what to say or do...so they say stupid thing and don't do anything. What happens to people who grieve is they become reclusive...just to protect themselves from "well meaning" people.

of course you become reclusive...how else can you protect yourself from these people?  They are everywhere.  I'm so sorry you had to deal with that on top of your great loss.

people, unfortunately do not think before they speak...I'm so so sorry, you've had to go thru this...hugs....

when My foster mom was dying, people would say, "Well, she IS 92?"  and I'd reply..."she still my mom".
