I work at a large construction company inside of an office, sometimes it's hard not to be rude to people considering that the majority of this 20,000 employee construction site are males. There are females as well, but not even half of those 20,000 employees are female. So I get looked at, stared at, followed around in some instances, others try to go out of there way to talk to me when they don't even know me and I get asked if I have a boyfriend a lot of the time. I come to work to do just that, to make money and go home so I can support myself, it's not like I'm at some club with my girlfriends. I'm usually wearing work boots, safety glasses and a hardhat when I have to go outside. That kind of thing could irritate anyone, even a guy put a position of employment around a ton of females would start to feel weird and uncomfortable with the first mention of a period or menopause. So sometimes there are instances where it is difficult to always be nice. I try, I really do, but there are always those people that pluck your nerves by just looking at you.View Thread
I'm Italian and Irish, I can be nice when I want to be without a second thought but I have an intolerance of most peoples lack of respect for one another or themselves. It seems to me that even women my age, in the early twenties, should conduct themselves with more respect instead of acting as if they are stuck in the 9th grade with raging hormones. Some people just never grow up or have the desire to better themselves or their situations and are too likely to point the blame towards an external souce instead of pointing the blame at themselves. In short, I guess my #1 pet peeve is disrespect. I suppose I get my "nice gene" from my father who was always willing to help someone out even if it was in some way inconvenient for him to do so, but if he was crossed in some way, there was no going back. It was suffer the dire conscequences. (That's my Italian side). I am definitely not nice all of the time, but when people respect themselves and respect others, it's hard not to be nice.View Thread
I believe that pastor needs to read his bible again. Considering the biblical perspective of breastfeeding (nursing) makes references to show breastfeeding or nursing to be a joyful, rewarding blessing to both mother and child.
Women have the right to breastfeed their children anytime and anywhere they choose. I do not see breastfeeding as something to be offended by, unless that individual was not breastfed themselves and has a sort of anomosity towards it because they are jealous. (ha ha ha).View Thread
