It was yesterday. First, a long queue at the post office at Old Street which filled up the whole area with barely enough space to walk out of it. Then realised that I had left my Malaysian mobile SIM card in the Orange shop at Notting Hill the day before while changing to the new UK prepaid SIM. All this had me starved with nothing until 4:45pm.

And no body cares.

Purdy would like some sympathy people

Geez girl, give people a chance to wake up!!!

Beerman organizes a sympathy party, complete with extra vodka and oversized bandages, with a little extra vodka on the side just to be safe. Vodka is also good for bloodstains. Who's got the cheesy puffs?

Oh, yeah, these people, they projected their unresolved issues on you. If you react to their intrusive behaviors, you're labeled defensive.

U are very good at this. That is exactly how they are.
As well as the annoyance of saying u are defensive they have an equally annoying tendancy to tell u that the truth hurts when what is hurting is having to listen to their annoying twist on your life.
I think people who travel have a higher number of these people pursuing them with their suggestions because people who dont travel dont understand why it is worthwhile. And parents also have a high number of these types of people giving them childcare advise....
And they ask those awful questions with that awful look on their face. They will ask why do u travel so much with the expression on their face that I would have if I was asking a person why they only wash once per year. :(

lol, they gave you a hard time. If I were you, I'd joke, put the stress back on them. Don't let them get to you!;)

Yeah, they'd stop only when they're aware of their behaviors.
well.......some would, some are not as receptive, like this guy:

What made me frown today or literally everyday, is a jack-a-s-s that isn't in tune with the world around him.
He's a pompous, self-rightgeous bigot who presses others to adopt his values and belief. It's my way or the highway and he sees nothing wrong with offending others
And The sad thing is, he doesn't know he is the one out of the loop
