    I Must Be Losing It..............

    So, I just came back from shopping. I used my old falling apart walker which was given to me for the seven years the doctors couldn't figure out WHY I couldn't walk (Duh). I don't like to carry heavy stuff & I bought 15 lbs. of cat litter. Feeling fine. So this woman, in her fifties, I think, stops me & with a Russian accent asks me if I speak Russian. All there are are Russians around here. Predominantly Russian. I say, "no, English". I had a feeling she wanted more than directions. She says "I'm a Home Care Attendant, do you have need of my services (something like that)"

    So I yell "How dare you Insult Me!, Get Out of My Way, you Efffing Bitch"!! using the real word, of course.

    I was wearing a Star Trek T-Shirt! Now I feel like I'm 90 years old. I should have said "NO, but Paul McCartney (or Mick Jagger) might, Do You Suck Cock?"

    I'm heaving with anger & I feel like an old crone.

    I don't like this getting older thing, not one bit, nothing about it, nothing. I hate it. I guess I'll admit I'm at the "Will you still need me, will you still feed me" age. Don't even like the song anymore.

    This is bringing out a hurt in me, a real pain. I actually feel like crying.

    Umm, I wonder what her answer would have been to your pointed question?

    YZ, I missed you & your humor so much!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry you answered though, as I came back to delete this thread, now thanks to you it's too late.

    I'm really a nervous wreck lately, and by some miracle I'm not screaming out loud every waking minute. I meditate now, for the past year in an attempt to shut up & accept. But this dame pressed my buttons. I don't think she was that much younger than me.

    Wow. I am sorry that you are having such a hard time with the getting old thing, Anne.
    I am still in denial, myself. I can't think of anything to like about it, either.

    I could delete this thread (I got connections, ya know.), if you still want it gone, though I think you raise a good subject. Maybe talking (typing) about it could help.

    It's the loss of power that I hate. I was a powerful person, fearless & fearsome. Now I ............ I'm not.

    Thanks Lars, but I guess I'll let the chips fall where they may. It will be off soon enough on it's own. But thank you, very much.

    OMG - I laughed Paul & Mick..!

    I read this to my Hubby & Brother - we all laughed - so, Thank You for that.

    Getting old sucks - we have limitations where we never did before.
    Honestly, I couldn't lift 15 lbs. of Cat Litter - maybe this lady was trying to be nice to help you with that?

    depressing I know - I don't like to be called Maam.

    It's OK - scream

    Well...first of all, that's not true. You are still an extremely powerful intellect. ( I suspect powerful spiritually as well.) Secondly, that was a seriously inappropriate question for a stranger to ask, and unsolicited as well! That as tactless as asking a woman if she is pregnant. She might as well have asked if she could film you in the bathroom or what color your underwear was.

    I think your response, although emotional, was to be expected. Perhaps she'll think twice about being insensitive in the future.

    By the way, my response to the kids when they ask me rude or insensitive questions (something which happens nearly every day) is, "That's OK...It's not like I have feelings or anything!"
