There might be places near you that are hiring extra employees for the holidays. Is that something you might want to try?

I can't do stand up jobs. I need something like a call center/customer service. I won't really mind being off for the holidays. I am going to doctors for my hands at the moment so I won't have to worry about missing work. Paying bills and food shopping will be the problem.

I disagree here, Cat. One thing we all must learn is that things are not always what we think they are. He was rude to make that comment without knowing the whole story. You did nothing wrong and owed him no explanation. You did the best thing you could have done and that was to say nothing.

I am sorry you got laid off. I know it is a hard time to go through. But like you said, there is always cooking. Food has a way of calming us.

And this may be a cooking/food forum, but it is also a forum of friends. Like Cat has said, "This is the best place on the Internet to be." And she is right.

I agree that Cat did nothing wrong.

However, how will he learn if he doesn't know he made a mistake? He will just go on thinking that "young people are so inconsiderate nowadays".

I see your point, but even an explanation might not change his way of thinking. He could come back with another rude comment and a shouting match would begin. I would just walk away without a comment.

Petty vent for today is my toilet. It is very low. Which is good as a rule for me. Being short, I don't need a spring board to get on it. (Have you ever noticed how high those handicap one are?) But now I have to use just one leg to get up. I can't put any weight on my broken foot, so my good side gets to do all the work. And the muscles are not used to doing so much work, getting me up and down. They are tired and getting up from the toilet is the hardest. I suppose I could sit on it all day and save me some muscle using. But that doesn't sound like a possibility. I don't want to eat my meals in there.
