Oh, dear, I nearly made someone cry today. Not on purpose. All in all, I do not think I have been the nicest person around in the past 24 hours. The thing is, people ask, but they don’t really want to know.

Anyway, LSS tells a funny story about yesterday at the Parkview Park n Shop where a bevy of typical squawky-voiced large-arsed English mums were gathered at the checkout. In swans this 6-foot tall blonde Germanic vision of loveliness, with 2 angelic blonde children in tow. Silence falls. You can feel the hatred pulsing towards her in vibes from the Squawky Mums. The thing is, if she hadn’t had the children with her, they could have dismissed her as just a blonde airhead with nothing to do except devote herself to self-beautification. But WITH the children, there is no option left but to think: She’s just...better than me. AND her children are better than my children.

Depressed at my stupidity. Going to go off and eat lunch and try to forget.

People sometimes ask a question, mostly looking for reassurance, not another answer.

It seems that you had a bad day. Hope a great day is waiting for you tomorrow.

Don't be daft.

You should just be pleased that you nearly made someone cry. It always cheers me up to know that I have been a complete sh*t to someone.

Crying isn't always hurtedness - they might be pissed at you! Watch your back!

DG - I strongly suspect that once you have made someone cry, you can pretty much expect them to hate you forever. Just as they will hate you, if they have injured you. All in all, it's a good thing I'm leaving HK!

Troika - you must be a very happy fellow most of the time then!

Larged arse or lard arse and why english, why not American
However can understand the issue happens when asian ladies who normally do not have lard arses appear,
Funny what bigotory we feel in such places as Park and Shop

they just happened to be English.

But I can report that I am bigoted everywhere, not just in the PnS.
