    This was a great snippet. Thank you for sharing! We all know both types of people. “Preach only to the choir.” Amen! :)

      Hi Alison – I graduated in ’78 and Lydia and I always joked about being related through one of  my grandmothers – I’m sure we were distantly – are you still in the area?  I’m in Western Mass.

    I totally agree with Maria.   I always try to  find comedy in the negative remarks or before anyone makes a fun of you, try to make fun of yourself and laugh.  It helps  to reduce the stress.  

    If you are in a stressful environment, write your opinions if you do not agree and speak up.  That surely helps a lot.  Writing is a powerful tool.
