And why are they so ready to look for something to be offended about?

Lots of love

Some people are born cross kitty, for some it gets them through the day

Kitty don't ask! grin

kittylester Thu 15-Jun-17 15:52:07

I just did! confused

rosesarered Thu 15-Jun-17 15:53:56

I have no idea why people are cross/easily offended/lookingforafight etc and not sure I want to know ( but they can't come to my birthday party! grin)

It's always the same posters, as well...hmm

kittylester Thu 15-Jun-17 15:57:31

It just uses such a lot of energy that could be put to better use.

Ana Thu 15-Jun-17 16:11:28

Obviously tires 'em out as well...

NanaandGrampy Thu 15-Jun-17 16:13:49

what is it that's always posted Rigby - if it's so boring you don't need to read or post . confused

Probably pussy cats in RL. Hence the snores.

NanaandGrampy Thu 15-Jun-17 16:18:35

I think you have a point Annie in that being angry is the default setting for some people.

It's like Grampy - when the girls were younger his default answer to pretty much everything was 'no'! A bad habit I knocked persuaded him out of smile

Maybe it makes them feel better?

I suspect Rigby thinks he/she is being really clever and superior to everyone else - in fact they are just a tiresome child.

Some people are just made cross I guess. Maybe when they write their thoughts down it comes over as a bit more cross and argumentative than if we could have heard the intonation in their voice - but they should take that into consideration. I don't mind having a difference of opinion with anyone, but as I always told my children - if you can't say (write) something nicely then don't say anything at all.

I was just watching the GP programme on TV and a young girl was so cross that the doctor advised her to go up to the hospital and appeared very ungrateful for any help that was being offered. There is no excuse, whatever kind of bad day she might have been having.

I'd like to point out that I mentioned no names in my op and it was not aimed at any particular person.

Anniebach Thu 15-Jun-17 16:37:41

Nananandgrampy grin

Belledonna telling a poster to get of a thread because someone disagrees, or telling a poster the are not capable of an adult conversation is a teeny bit unpleasant is it not?

Jalima1108 Thu 15-Jun-17 17:19:47

But if the cap fits grin
