Well, I don’t personally understand why you’re getting such a shit reception (beyond what you explained clearly, obviously)…i mean, i GET that it’s happening. I just will never understand why anyone thinks it’s a good use of time and energy to pass judgment on a stranger they know nothing about. Or on anyone, really.
What I DO know is that in my experience, if a person is focused on everyone else’s business, trying to catch them screwing something up, that person is missing an excellent opportunity to shut the hell up and tend to a little personal housekeeping of their own.
Physician, heal thyself and all.
Sorry you’re having to bend under the weight of their carelessness, and even more sorry you feel at a breaking point.
I wish people were kinder. I wish that so much, so often.
