That’s horrific!!! I can’t believe you managed to restrain yourself from knocking her lights out. If i was within earshot of that conversation I would have punched her out for you (and I’m not a fighter!).

*big hugs* to you. Try not to dwell on her ignorance, she’s not worth your thoughts.

That’s really awful! Was this a coworker, or just an acquaintance? If it’s someone you work with, I would go to HR immediately!

Holy crap!!!  What an awful thing to say.  At least you know that she’s not a good person, and you can totally discount her from now on.

The first time I ever met my daughter’s college roommate’s mother, she got mad at me and called me a “manipulative Jewish b–tch.” The other three of us stood around with our mouths open. Her daughter burst into tears and fled. I whispered in my daughter’s ear: “nothing good is going to happen here,” and we walked out of the room together leaving that mom foaming at the mouth. My daughter and her daughter ended up the very best of friends and still are, many years later. We just have to outwait the crazy ones. Sorry to hear this happened.

Uh, I think you should pat yourself on the back majorly for not kicking her bigoted, knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing, filthy arse right there and then.

Anti-semitism seems to be the easiest position for hateful and small minded people. My sincerest warm wishes for your healing after this display of viciousness.

How cruel!!! Reading that just took my breath away.  I can’t believe that in our modern society there are people who are just so a** backwards…

I’m so sorry to hear that this happened to you, it breaks my heart that people still behave this way.

And I really echo other people in saying that your self-restraint is above and beyond anything I could have managed. 

I know it’s easier said than done, but try not to dwell on it, it’s not worth it.

That’s horrible. Was it at work? I would have gone to HR immediately. People get fired over things like that…

If it wasn’t, I’m glad you had the restraint to not harm her, but if there was anyone else around, I am shocked that they didn’t step in and say something. What a “class act.”

As hard as it is to do at times, biting our tongues and leaving the people with their own small minds is the best way to handle situations like this.  It is never an easy thing to do by any means, but you can always rest easy knowing that you have taken the high road.  My Fiance and I still get looks from people sometimes when we go out, inter-racial couple, I have learned to just smile at them and keep going…..don’t get me wrong the entire time I am smiling at them in the back of my mind I am thinking how small minded they are in this day and age and how sad I feel for them.

I am truly sorry that you have had to deal with this though, but I am also so proud of you and how you did handle the situation

OMG! Why did she say that?  Well, I mean, what was going on that she then said something like that?!  I’ve never heard that word before, but it doesn’t sound nice at all and it makes me so mad when people say stuff like that.
