Bad ways to start the day: being insulted online by someone who hasn't even tried to understand what you're talking about...

Bad way to start the day: with a hostile person in your space angrily asking you why you don't remember where one piece of mail was dropped of 4 days prior. (pre-caffeine)

Bad way to start the day: taking them seriously. :-)

I had to teach myself this overtly when I was much younger: an insult is a PROFFER, and for it to work you have to accept the proffer.

Eleanor Roosevelt allegedly said (but likely didn't "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent".

(Click the link: her original statement applies to this situation even better.)

Quite true. And I confess, I'm largely disappointed that they chose to insult me as a way of shutting down the conversation, instead of taking the risk of actually engaging with me and finding out that they could be incorrect in their assumptions; it might have turned into a genuinely interesting and useful discussion.

Still, when it happens before my morning tea, it stings...

Sadly, well understood. There are some places I don't bother to express an opinion anymore.

Yeah, I was not impressed with that tactic. :-/

Alas that sounds like much of the internet.

Bad way to start the day: sobbing in the allergists office because the brain chemistry, it is fubared.

This morning continues to have been fired, well past its expiration date.
