MissMarple:  

First of all, I do not need you to define simple concepts or idioms for me. You have done that more than once and we both know that is your insidious way of insulting me. That is what I was offended by and not your “playing dumb” comment. 

I am far more cognizant of hidden meanings behind word choices than you think, my dear. It is obvious that you were being nasty, so kindly refrain from further insulting my intelligence with your pompous blathering mmmmkay? You will not acknowledge the rest of my last post because you know that calling other people rude while being ill mannered yourself is ridiculous. 

Climb off your pillar of smug pretension before life knocks you off of it.  Take care!

My outlook on this situation is not popular. Consequently, there have been a slew of Bees swarming trying to browbeat me into agreeing with them. I am just as entitled to my opinion as any of you even if it is unpopular.

I never said anything about blood not being family. I made the point that your definition of family does not suit every situation.

+1000 The grandchild example would be hurtful to anyone who cannot have children or chooses not to have them.

amiona:  Are we reading the same thread? You’re the one throwing out insults and trying to bait the other poster into a fight. Classy.

You started being rude to the OP, defended your right to be “brutal” and now it seems you’ve gotten overly angry about perceived insults and are being rude to other posters as a result. This isn’t even the first thread you’ve done this on. I’ve noticed it all over. Other posters have too as seen by their replies to you.

Unfathomably:  

The phrase you are looking for is “black pot, meet kettle”.  If you’re going to insult someone, at least use the proper phrasing so that you don’t look silly. Yes, that was me being condescending.Unlike some people, I actually own my words and how I say them.

As you can see, I am not the kind of woman to meekly tolerate others taking shots at me, just because I do not follow the crowd like a mindless sheep. 

I stand by my opinion which strangely received over 40 helpfuls even though most Bees who have posted on this thread are appalled at my viewpoint: 

  • Nobody is obligated to buy gifts for anyone.
  • The OP seems like she would have been upset if her in-laws bought her a present and it didn’t meet her standards. This is shown when she made the comment about her husband’s gift. We don’t know if her in-laws have picked up on her criticisms or not.
  • The OP also seems like she approaches gift giving with a give to receive atttitude. Since I never give presents because I expect something in return, that way of thinking doesn’t sit well with me.

Yes and it is very classy that you are now joining the fray. Do you feel more accepted now?

To be honest, I couldn’t care less what you or other Bees think of my posts. You are not a moderator, so there is no need for you to police my sentences. If my opinion was in line with what most Bees on this thread were thinking, nobody would be up my ass about being “brutal”. I wonder where you and other Bees who complain about me find the time to follow my posts so closely.

I am entitled to my opinion and way of sharing it like any other Bee. I’m certainly not the first Bee to be honest without sugarcoating my words, so there is no need for you to clutch pearls.
