    I hate it when people criticize sometimes. Just the other day at work I go and get a hot dog to eat at a restaurant and I told someone at work and they say why would you want to get a hot dog. If I went to a restaurant I would get something better than that. Excuse me but I didn't ask for your opinion asshole. It is my money and I do what i want with it. It just pissed me off.

    How do you expect people to follow your story when you don't even use quotation marks to indicate reported speech? Can't you do anything right?

    LOL! Sometimes when you think you are just telling a story others may think you are asking for their opinion. But yes, it can be nerve wracking sometimes.

    That really irks me too... also the people who criticize what I eat or drink without me even saying anything! You know, the rabid vegans, the "oh, everything has to be SOOOOO healthy" people, the anti-soda people...:mad:

    There are better ways to say this, and the story was lame. A hot dog? There's more to the world than hot dogs, and better things to loose your temper over.

    So true! I had a hissy fit just the other day because my dad won't let me have a dog. :irked: I made the very logical argument that as an adult I would be totally responsible for Fido's care. Not to mention the fact dogs are great companions for people who live with depression as I do. He wasn't hearing it though. :mad::frown1:

    Small or large, I think the issue is that someone else took it upon themselves to decide that you and the OP didnt have the sense to make a decision yourselves. As for your dad, even though you are there with him and your mom, he is losing much of his power this is one of the few things over which he feels he has veto power because it is his house. In know it is infuriating. I dont know if it is the generation or their individual personalities(my mom does the same thing), but they seem to be hardwired with it and there is little you can do to change them. Also, your dad is ex military... I dont envy you!

    People who complain piss me off. Gripe, gripe, gripe. It's so tedious to listen to. Especially when they repeat themselves. Have I told you how much people who complain piss me off? They're so tedious. Gripe, gripe, gripe. . . .

    Is the irony of this statement lost on you?
    Do you, therefore, hate yourself for your criticism of other's criticizing?

    EVERYONE evaluates their experience and everyone lets other's know what they think.

    Other than a mentor or other person whose opinion might matter, you should be adult enough to deal with the fact that other people have other thoughts and the freedom to express them.
    Get over it.

    This kind of complaint is second only to the near universal whining over stereotyping...
    folks complaining about others doing the very thing they can not stop doing themselves...
    Complaining about the simple facts of how human beings process and exchanges information about their experience.

    I'm always puzzled at the interest some people seem to take in scrutinizing the meals of others: what's being eaten, how it's being eaten, etc. Hardly a lunch hour goes by when some self-appointed culinary critic at the table doesn't launch a small-talk discussion circle about the relative merits of the various meals within sight.

    Its enough to make one want to eat alone at their desk.
