Stupid People

Me - minding my own business at the grocery store looking at the organic peanut butter - stupid lady who I have never met approaches.....

Stupid Lady (SL) - "Oh! How are you doing" (very pitiful voice)

Me - "fine"

SL - "Did you have chemotherapy? Are you a survivor?"

Me - "I am going through chemotherapy"

SL - "Oh my Aunt had Cancer and the chemotherapy killed her - not the cancer"

Me - just looking at her amazed with a what the ? look on my face.

SL - "That probably wont happen to you though"

Me - " I will be fine"

SL - "How awful for you"

Me - walk away before I say something I will regret.

Seriously, if I ever say anything that lame to you please shoot me and put me out of my misery - I have heard that people say stupid things but this was the first and it was REALLY stupid.

Sorry for your health issues. But think about the fact it is those who lack tack that help us appreciate those special people around us who are a joy to interact with. God loves us and cares for us which also makes up for those who have not seen the light yet. May you find peace and strength for your journey through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

wow, her name fits her well. What a coincidence. I bet she asks people who are a little chubby when their babies are due. Ok, the only reason I added that part is because it happened to me. I was ask, didn't do the askin'. Ugh.

Seriously though, it sounds like you handled that perfectly. And if it happens again, just blog about it. We got your back.

My jaw has hit the keyboard! I cannot believe there are people like that in the same world in which we live.
I am so sorry.

People could be really stupid at times.
"They know not what they do" Humph!
