I Don't Like the Pat On the Back Gesture

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5 People

    Ummm

    I had never gotten the pat on the back gesture until yesterday and now I've gotten 2 of them.  Kinda weird.  Gotta say that gesture seems condescending to me.  I hope the senders meant well but just to let you know that one is not something I appreciate.

    I don't like hanging with people who smoke. They always blow smoke in your face by mistake. The smell is nasty. I don't smoke or drink.
