True, we are all different. I'm different in a sense that I am almost numb to words. Seriously, a person could call me about any name in the book or say my mom wore combat boots, and it wouldn't bother me much. I call it maturity, but I don't know. I know that not many people are like that.
Hey Southbound... Maybe I was reading you wrong here.. I told my husband what you said on here last night, mentioning your mom in Combat boots... this thread subject ....how you would be numb to someone saying something like that and you feel this is "maturity" on your part ..... and he shoots back ...."well yeah...... that's someone trying to pick a fight !" --is this what you meant when you replied like this... someone purposely trying to get a RISE... a reaction ?
I wasn't thinking like that when I replied... my husband agrees with what YOU said, he too is numb ....if someone like that was around, he wouldn't let them get under his skin..at all... it's best to just move along... ignore them.
Under these circumstances... I'd have to agree... Life it too short to allow our emotions to be blown by the wind by those who have no power over us or can't affect our lives either way.
That's why i am always amazed at how someone is always having to apologize on tv for something they said. I'm thinking, "Really? It really hurt someone's feelings that badly?" I do like a good debate, but I rarely get upset.
I quickly seen your thread on Paula Deen, I've never watched her and not clear on the story but a few tidbits my husband read in a people's magazine days ago... I have to agree with Unbelievable's post on your thread here >>
This is America. With the exception of uttering obscenities in the presence of kids or yelling "fire" in a theater or "bomb" in an airport, let people speak, think, worship, read, or listen as they wish. If you find someone insulting, you can ignore them or insult them back. Enough with the political correctness and thought police. We're turning into the PC Taliban.
I'm not politically correct at all... I've often thought it would be horrible to be famous.....every word you utter is scrutinized, weighed, and judged. Seems Paula Deen was just being honest ... obviously it would have been better for her to LIE to the public...this is why the world is full of Liars...every Politician....you can't believe a single word that comes out of anyone's mouth these days.... because they are just pandering...."white lying" their way through ...we learn from a young age, telling the truth only gets you in a deep pot of trouble.
I think that's a shame.
