What I meant to say ...

It's Wednesday - and that means it's time to get all that stuff out of you... oh, you know... the things you SHOULD have said, but DIDN'T and have been torturing yourself about all week... yeah, those things. Chief is hosting this weekly event, so after you leave me a comment (and validate my existence) click on Chief's button here and play along. It's fun... It's releasing... It's what I meant to say...



A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, I had an appointment with a new ObGyn. I went to this practice because I needed a new one and this was the one my sister went to.

When checking in, I said that my sister had her kids with one of the doctors in the practice. The nurse turned to me and said "Goats have kids, women have children."

What I said: *crickets chirping*

What I meant to say: Listen, you arrogant b*tch, thank you for the etymology lesson, but a) I am not a child, b) what gives you the right to talk down to me like I am some piece of crap that blew in off the street and c) go take a long walk off a short pier.

WOW..she said that? You did well to bite your tongue. Customer service apparently not part of her job. LOL.

What? What a wench, I can't believe she said that to you, it was quite rude.

Even Wikipedia will tell you that "kid" can refer to human children! lol

I would like to believe that is what you meant to say, but I don't. I don't think you would even have it in you to say that out loud. Maybe in your head but not out loud.

Kellie said...

I know that office lady. Everyone secretly hates her. Especially those that have to live with her.

Sara said...

Seriously. I wonder if she feels a need to make that distinction every time she hears somebody refer to human "kids." & how many times a day she'd have to do it!

Lee-Ann said...

OMG that is awful. I love how you just couldn't say anything I would have been the same way. LOL

SeriousMom said...

I always wonder why people who have no inclination to serve customers work in customer service positions.

Kellie said...

Hey Laurie- I have something for you on my blog:)
