Some People are So Thoughtless and STUPID!
SO... Today she comes in with her daughter who is in her late teens, early twenties and asks if I'm working and do I have Blue with me? Well, of course I do. He's always with me at work. So she asks the girls in the reception area if they can come back to my area to see him. So they call me and I say.....................yes. What else could I say? So after visiting with him, the daughter says in this whiny voice. "Mom, I want another Great Dane!" to which she replies "Oh NO! They die too young! Ours died at 6!" then she looks at me and asks how old Blue is. (I just told her his age last month!) So, I say- "He'll be 5 in November" and she purses her lips and raises her eyebrows. At that point I pulled her head down by her bangs and knee'd her in the nose!
OK, I didn't really but I WANTED to. So...even though I know Blue has many many years ahead of him, asinine remarks like that leave me with a lump in my throat and my eyes blurred.
Well, my friends! Anyone have a good retort for me to use next time?
