OMG they have medication that makes the world more tolerable?? Where have I been?I normally am. I usually either ignore them or say something back that's unoffensive, but I went off of my medicine about two months ago because I felt it wasn't doing anything, but after a little while, I realized that it WAS doing something, so now I'm working my way back up to my normal dosage.
But seriously, Rerun is right... I too learned the hard way to just play nice with the rest of the world when not behind a keyboard It was fun when I could mis-spend my youth pierceing my face and cladding scantily, then scurry home to my parents' house and have my dad and dogs there which were a force to be reckoned with... but for a while I was on my own quickly learned to shut my mouth, put some clothes on and just smile when "spoken to".
I occasionally still let my driving finger slip for old time's sake and find myself followed to the grocery store parking lot... luckily there are many other grocery stores in our neighborhood However, for the sake of my dogs, house, car (and my bf is getting tired of finishing fights I start), I try to be on my best behavior.
