Oh, ItsAllRyche, sorry you were made to feel unwelcome elsewhere. Not here, though!
The one thing I like about WTF is that it's not a clique - everyone is made to feel welcome when they join, and I think it comes from the top. Sherry has set the tone here, and for that I'm glad.
Now Gracie, we need to find you a clever retort, to be used whenever you meet up with old poopy pants (or people like him) again.
Sorry you had to put up with his unkindness.
And Stray, sorry you had snobby folks to deal with. "With age comes wisdom" is not totally true. Yes, you know things because you've lived longer, and sometimes you want to warn someone else to avoid going through the same bad situation you've gone through, but my philosophy is you are never
too old to learn - stay constantly teachable, keep open to different ideas, you'll get more out of every day.
It's too bad so many of us go through daily unpleasantness. Life is too short, people! Be nice to these good folk!
