The dumbest things people have said to you/about you
Ok, I know, it might sound mean to make fun of people or call them "stupid" or "idiots". But I am sure that in your journey you had quite a bit of stupid/insensitive or plain dumb stuff told to you. And you wanted to just get those people by their collar and shake them real well (or maybe who knows, just give them a good back-hand, if you could - and you couldn't because of all the surgeries and stuff you were going through). So, venting thread.
I deal pretty well on the "hey, look at the positive part, you get free perky boobs out of this". I might even use the line myself, whenit comes to lift up the spirits of a friend who busts in tears for me and can't stop, so I am the one trying to comfort them.
But the dumbest thing I have heard lately: I have an absolutely great girlfriend, in my circle of friends. While I was in the hospital for the bilateral MX and immediate recon, she came and stayed over, switching with my beloved BF - he was in the hospital at night, she was during the days. And in the meantime she cleaned the house spotless from top to bottom.
She is in quite "between the rock and the hard spot" right now, was out of a job for a year, living with her parents, and her Mom sems to be quite the bitch and trying to 'get at her" with every occasion she has. My GF finally landed a good job - she starts next week so she hopes in at most two months to be able to be out of there.
To make a long story short, this last week-end, she came to spend the week-end with us.Her Mom (who was always jealous of the closeness of our friendship), when my GF told her she will be gone for two days, said "so, I probably need to get my boobs cut off too to get the same attention from you?". Now, guys, that really hit the spot. I felt the need to call her and tell her that I will be praying every night that we can switch places, as it seems that she is so willing to pay the price.
