I have always cared about not hurting anyones feelings. So why do some people feel free to say ignorant things so freely? I had a friend over for dinner and she noticed my swollen hands. I told her I was in a rheumatoid flare for the last 2 weeks. She was upset at how much pain I was in and wondered how I could possibly continue to work. I told her my doctor put me on sick leave for the month of Feb. She then said I was lucky because she wished she could have something on her work file so she could take "whatever day" she wanted off with pay...I was so stunned at this statement.She honestly didn't think she was rude. I didn't know what to say. ...For about 5 minutes I was silent as the anger raged inside of me...Then I thought why should I keep silent? So I said:
" I am so sick and tired of being polite to rude and ignorant people!!"
Boy oh boy did that feel good
Thanks for the rant
