Dear "Miss. A" from "such n' such place",

I understand that you are no way affected by me, my family, and my situation therefore once you are done talking with me you will never think about me again. It is your position as a stranger to be like that. I do not feel that gives you any right to be cruel an heartless though.

I do not think my situation is funny. Not once in the last 9 months of my life have I looked at anything that has happened to me and thought it to be comical. When you laughed in my face at what I had just told you, yes it made me angry. As it should. So when you say that I am just stressed about everything and that is why I am being so touchy about it you are only partially right. I didn't ask to be laughed at, I didn't ask to talk to someone that was on a power trip.

You have not walked a second in my shoes. You may have no idea what it is like to have everything TOTALLY fine one day then the next have your entire world change when you husband gets laid off. Then after months and months of trying your very hardest your world changes again with a diagnosis of Diabetes for your 4 year old daughter. Every couple of months, regardless of how hard we are trying, we get hit with something else. Until you have been through this yourself you have no right to judge me. You are though, and you think that I am just like every other scum bag out there. I am not!

Our conversation could have been very different. Maybe next time, when you meet someone like me, you will be less judgemental, less rude, and a little more humble.

Sincerely,
Mommy Going Crazy

Good job Shannon! I am glad that you told that person off. There is never a reason for anyone to judge someone...even if they know them. That is not something for us to decide. Judgmental people need to realize that the world doesn't revolve around them.

Well said! Hope things are ok :(

Shannon, I don't know what that is all about, but i'm sorry! It sucks when people are so judgemental. I hope things keep looking up for you guys. I was telling my mom, Janet, about what has been going on with you guys and she told me to tell you Hi for her. I think you seem to handle all the trials that you have been given lately very well. I just hope that if I have to go through anything like that, I can handle myself as well as you do!

I'm so sorry that whatever you posted about happened. I don't even know you and I am so inspired by you, your strength, your creativity and your faith. On rough days just remember that you have more fans than critics. I know, that's easier said than done! You're doing a great job and that was an excellent post.

You are one of the strongest and bravest people I know. You are an inspiration to us all.

Good Job on telling whoever that was off! I wish I had that kind of strength to do that I usually just bite my toung. I know I haven't known you that well even through high school but you have always been a terrific person and always so positive and look at the good in anything and everyone. Good luck with everything in life. Your the greatest. Oh and your kids are adorable!

Next time, get an air horn at Wal-Mart for $5....blast it if someone like "Miss A" is giving you trouble (assuming its on the phone).

I think that you should put the actual names and company names up. Just a head up for the rest of us not to do business with them.
