    Sometimes I Don't Realize It Right Away...

    I rarely get offended.  A lot of times a friend will comment about something, and be completely pissed off.  The entire time I'm listening to their story, I'm thinking..."Is it really worth getting all worked up over?"  I would much rather someone be...

    Why?

    I don't really care much if people want to say stuff to me. I hate being PC so whatever people say to me is fine. Probably the one thing that gets me is work, I take pride in that, but if someone wants to tell me that I'm doing something all wrong that's okay by me, it doesn't...

    Even Something Like That Really

    I understand where people come from, and I sometimes I expect it from certain people--yeah, call it stereotyping.  Like this one guy in my diesel class I hung out with for a while and we were talking to another guy outside the welding building.  He was given a small...

    I Used To, But Now Im the One That Offends..lol

    Thick Skin

    I've had to get some thick skin. I've been called fat in every way under the sun. I've had people make fun of WHO I am, everything I do, the way I talk, the way I walk, everything. And it hurt at first. But no one can bring me down now. Call me what you want. Make any joke you...

    Except For The Exceptions

    I really dont get offended unless you repeat your offense countless time and if you are disrespectful. But other than that i dont really get offended especially if youre being honest. I respect honesty.

    Maybe It Comes With Age

    When I was younger I could take almost any comment & turn it into a insult towards myself.  But now it really takes a lot to offend me.  I think I have mellowed out in my "old age".  Or, maybe I just don't give a s hit what people think of me! ...

    Why Be Offened?

    I'm almost never offended by what people say. You actually have to go pretty far out of your way to offend me just by saying something. People's actions are usually much more offensive than their words but you still have to be pretty offensive and ignorant to have it bother me.

    So, this just happened.

    *Person whistling in the car* Me "Could you please stop whistling?" Him "That's very rude." Wow. So telling someone to stop making a noise is rude? Ugh, this reminds me of all the ******* who get offended at everything.

    Tonight the man sitting next to me said,

    "I sit in my van and watch pretty women walk by, like these two here." And he points at the women behind the bar. Then he quickly looks over to his right at me in a worried way (the only other woman here) and I pretended I did not hear. I wouldn't have thought to post about it...

    I've been through some hard times in my life,

    been ridiculed, harassed, beaten, been told I was worthless, fat, ugly. I finally realized that the people who said and did those things to me, don't matter. Only if you matter to me will something like that hurt anymore.

    at EVERYTHING. Ladies, I think equality is the best thing, but that doesn't mean you should get offended when men open the car door or restaurant door for you, or if they pull out your chair in a restaurant so you can sit. It is a gesture of kindness. We know perfectly well you...

    Not Worth The Aggrivation

    I figure its not worth it too get offended at what people say. I normally laugh at them or figure they have the right to their own opinion and don't care. If it a little bothers me I try to ignore it or bottle it up inside. I'm pretty easygoing about everything.

    that offend me. So since I had live with them I've grown accustomed to it. I work around it and hear it on TV. When people no longer care you grow a hard shell and get used to it.
