I don't think I would like that very much. She was a bit annoying though.

Lol, I don't think that would be good. I want some witty lines that will throw people like this off.

I struggle heavily with swearing and it is a struggle learning not to cuss. How about being witty with someone like that? How about the next time I am caught in a situation where I don't see the line, I offer to pay for their stuff even since I am there. I say, "You know what, since I am here, would...

I had gone to my campus booksore earlier this evening to get some treats. I then went to go pay for my things and didn't happen to notice that there was a line forming a few inches away. This woman then told me, "Ma'am, I don't mean to be mean but the back of the line starts there." She had this lit...

Thank you so much and I appreciate this your input. You might also need to know that this person has made plans to get together me with me in the past and then backs out at the last minute. Rather than be direct with me, he has the tendency to act very passive aggressive and mention that he's tired ...

One of my biggest pet peeves is when someone is not interested in you and then prove it by rubbing other friendships in your face.

Why does someone need to rub something in your face just to prove that they aren't interested.

Hi, I had recently discovered that someone who does not like me very much but would not admit it to my face. Instead, they talked to me until someone better came along and I just rejected. They the rubbed the situation on ,my face which touches my buttons. I feel like wanting to call them up and yel...

I had recently had a falling out with a guy in may who is on the spectrum back in May because I felt like I would invite him to things and yet he would brush me off. So I finally told him that I was tired of his crap and then we decided that it would be best if we went separate ways. However, I got ...

It's one of my pet peeves is that type of attitude right there because it usually reminds me that it's about them.

I was curious, I had gone to the grocery story yesterday and was passing through one of the aisles and I had a cart with me but I had happened to say, "Excuse me." Then the other person had a sarcastic response that said, "Scuse me." I was wondering, how do I handle a situation like that without try...

It sounds like your situation is rather toxic and that your family is not treating you very well. I also think that you are being wise for taking yourself out of the situation entirely. It also sounds like they have completely lost your trust because they are being insensitive to you and your feelin...

She is in grad student and this is her first counseling practicum and so that might be part of it. The sessions are supervised-via-webcam and so she has a supervisor watching her. I need to know what I should say as long as it isn't hurtful.

Another thing that I should mention which seemed to bother me is whenever I talk about someone who hurt me. I ask what she thinks about a situation. Her response is, "I don't know them," or "I don't know that person so I cannot make a judgement." This made me frustrated. What should I say to her if ...

I had a wonderful therapist before who I very much connected with and she seemed to be very understanding and patient as to why I acted a certain way in a situation. This one seems to be more interested in not relating to me and talking around the situation by looking at the brighter side of things ...

Hi, I am currently going to see a counselor once a week at a fixed time since I had worked with someone else and they left. Although I like the new therapist, it doesn't seem that she is relating to my needs. Although this is my second session, it seems like she really isn't relating to me. For inst...

I agree about being cordial with someone who you aren't really trusting them anymore. However, it's another to have a long distance relationship with that person since they are going to keep hurting you.
