Have you ever wanted to explain something to someone, but known that it would fall on deaf ears, or the matter of explaining it would end up lost somewhere in their cerebelum?

That saying I told you so would be meaningless? Pointless? So you are left frustrated and annoyed, with nowhere to place these feelings?

Have you ever been treated with great disrespect? So disgraceful that you almost can't believe how disrespectful the whole entire situation was? But you know that there is no way to explain this? People don't usually like to have it pointed out to them, how disrespectful they behaved.

And this post has nothing to do with the weather.

    beautiful new photo!

    Cathy i have been treated with disrespect many times, like we all have. If i am insulted by someone who is insignificant in my life i may say nothing. But if that person is important in some ways to me, i try to let it show i am angry and insulted.

    Having said this, i don't know how someone could insult you, as you are always so considerate. Some people don't know what they are missing.

    Yes. People who behave so dispectfully often make it a habit, and see nothing wrong with their behavior...which brings back to why it's pointless to try to explain it :(

    I'm sorry to hear you've been treated this way, and like chloe agree that's an ignorant person who would behave that way towards someone like you.

    PS - You've also summed up how I feel about living in This Country, with That Man as President. I voted, and not for him.

    Those types of folks quickly find the door out of my life. Sorry that someone was rude to you.

    Yes, yes, yes, and all with the same person. -_-

    There are two ways I deal with disresepect: first I will try to dismiss it as everyone has a bad day sometimes, and this particular instance agaisnt me isn't deliberate. then I hope they have a better day.

    Second, I call them on it, tell them they are acting like an ass, why they are acting like an ass, and if they couldn't think of a better way to handle a situation or themselves.

    I don't like deliberately rude, disrespectful people.

    I've been disrespectful to people but never once has it been intentional.

    Actually, I think it;s more occasional ignorance on my part.

    Respect for me is understanding that we are in fact all the same.

    The people who consider themselves "better" than others are the ones who normally disrepect.

    My Grandmother was a very disrespectful person, and believe it or not, hers was caused through religion.

    Being treated with disrespect, even by a complete stranger, can completely ruin my day. If it's someone I know and love, it just strings waaaaay deep. I'm so sorry you had that kind of day!

    You left a comment on my blog (about my daughter's scrapbook), but unfortunately I couldn't publish it because I'd made some edits and lost it. Feel free to come back and leave another... or not! (That goes for your readers too!)

    my answer is yes, to all those questions...and it sux. :(

    Absolutly.

    My MIL just doesn't get it. I have spoken up before but it's "pearls before swine". When someone is that ignorant there isn't much that can be done. Very frustrating.

    Maybe you won't post to this person, but you could write an e-mail outlining exactly what you feel and why. Spell it out for them. Maybe it won't change anything, but then, maybe it will.
