    Default Kept my mouth shut for once!!

    Today our night time bartender returned from maternity leave, I am (was) friends with her on face book so I have seen many pictures of her new baby.

    I welcomed her back and ask about the baby, and she had the NERVE to say to me...."I seen pictures of your dog on FB and he is UGLY"

    I clenched my teeth bit my tongue, got my stuff together and left. I came home and de-friended her. The NERVE!! Now what I really wanted to say was, "Well your new son is not so cute either"!! (He is) but I was furious. That was just plain rude. I would never say that about any ones kids or dog, obviously she knows how much I love my dog. I am proud of myself, I would have NEVER told her that her baby was ugly, that would be a lie, but I did want to tell her I found that statement very offensive to me.

    For once I kept my mouth shut and just left. YEA ME!!!!

    Just remember that 98.34% of all people will make up statistics 86.27% of the time that lean towards their own opinion by at least 51%. Of course I'm not 100% sure about that...

    Good for you. Besides who care what she thinks. I have had plenty of people say that Lucy has an ugly face or that she "looks mean". At first it bothered me---but now I feel bad for them that they will never experience the love of a Bully.

    Now I find myself cheerfully replying--"beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and "Yeah, she's a real meanie" and I know deep down inside I am a better person because I see the beauty in all animals--and you do too.

    @JAKEISGREAT, I know you are kidding about @BruceP, but yes you can block friends or de-friend them, I had to make my FB "private" only my accepted friends can view it, because Joe's stalker X-wife was reading my FB and calling him out on crap, even though I met him 3 months after he was legally seperated from her, she still thinks I "stole" her man. LOL

    Oh the nerve of that &*^%$! Why in the heck would anyone just come out and say such a thing?! I agree with other comments that her opinion doesn't matter anyway!!!!! In my opinion he is insanely handsome, I love Vegas

    Bully for you showing such restraint. Our Bulldogs have always gone to work with us so we've had to put up with "A face only a mother could love", "What a fat, ugly dog" type comments from very ignorant people.

    People are such A-HOLES!!! Apparently, her mom didn't teach her "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all!" I just don't understand how people just say rude things unprovoked. Now, provoke me ... and it's a different story!!! Good for you @KMARINO. You took the higher ground ... even though she deserved a punch in the face!

    Oh you definately did better than I would have. That's a tough call since you work in the same place you have to keep face so to speak. Guess I would have come back with, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I've heard people say that before that bullies are ugly, quite the insult when it's something that's close to your heart. But then again, I don't understand people nowadays. Kudos to you again for biting your tongue.

    The rudeness of some people is unbelievable. Hopefully she apologizes.
