    My mother in law does

    that with everyone. She thinks she has all the answers based on age alone, but a large base of experience a wise person does not make. Hers is the most dysfunctional life. Even my husband looks at her sometimes like, What are you talking about?

    I find it difficult to keep my temper

    when this happens. What I've noticed is 9 times out of 10, the person talking to me this way talks that way to almost everyone. That makes it a bit easier for me to not take it personally. I still hate it. I belong to a club where this girl talks to me as if I'm an idiot. I...

    I never like to be talked down to.

    I'm not a child, and I'm most definitely not dense. Just because I'm quiet doesn't mean I don't understand, I'm just observing and taking everything in carefully.
