I was born and brought up in a conservative, deeply religious family which had firm ideas of what a woman should or shouldn't do.
Although I don't have those views any longer, my fundamental speech and expression style has not changed. I find it immensely difficult to insult...
make me want to ***** slap the taste out of your mouths...some can be so rude and my patience is wearing thin. Whatever happened to just being able to say hi to someone and get a hi back without the rest of the crap that they are throwing at you

i remember how my parents enforced the ideas of manners onto me, they wasn't cruel, just annoying and very demanding lol. i also got alot of it, from impolite strict and cruel women in my primary school. I see myself as being very polite. perhaps almost to a fault, however there...
