    I'll leave it there for now but there are a ton more.
    Oh what?! :what:

    OMG, I am speechless!!!! I am so sorry you had to endure that.... xxxx


    I am sure I have some, but the only one that comes to mind was a male co worker many years ago. He said to me that I would have a hot body if only I lost a bit more weight in my legs!!!

    Wow are people actually that rude?

    I remembered another one. I was standing at the checkout and going through my list and realised I had forgotten something. I said to the lady behind me, "Would you mind watching my things because I've forgotten something, I'll be quick?". She signed loudly and said, "Oh for goodness sake how hard is it to do grocery shopping?" I eyeballed her thinking she had to be joking and said, "Righto, so will you watch this stuff or not?" She crossed her arms and said, "No I won't and I'll also get infront of you". It took everything I had to NOT punch her in the face. Effing cow

    Three of DP's "mates" have hit on me in the past (two of them had girlfriends at the time)...I think that's very rude! Needless to say they aren't friends any more.

    I can usually laugh most things off, or fire back something ten times more offensive to anyone who has the nerve to even try and p!ss me off, but after DD dies a family member asked my mum why we were even bothering to have a funeral because we only knew DD for 4 days and couldn't have been that attached.

    For the very first time in my life, I was speechless lol. I can shrug it off now, but when it was very raw...it hurt, and made me feel like I was maybe making a big deal about nothing kwim?

    This makes me lose faith in humanity. This goes beyond rude. How on earth could someone be so completely and utterly nasty.

    I don't know if she meant to be nasty. I know death can make people feel uncomfortable and go through a whole lot of emotions...it may have been fear, or just not knowing what to say.

    We've experienced a lot of comments that are quite similar, but I like to think people usually say it out of ignorance, rather than trying to hurt you.
