Anyway, the recent fires were brought up (we all live in VIC), and this guy mentioned how some people died going back into the fire to rescue their horses (or dogs, cats, birds, etc.) and how he couldn't undertand why they would do that. I replied and said that I could, b/c I have horses too, and I would go back into the fires to get them if need be. And he looks at me with this stupid grin on his face, that clearly said how pathetic and stupid he thought I was, and those people too. I continued to try to explain about how my horses are important to me, without getting all mushy and stuff, but his expression and attitude was SO rude and mocking, like he thought it was huge joke. He just stood there grinning at me the whole time like he thought I was such a loser and didn't care if it showed.
Now I know that not everyone likes horses or understands, but man! At least have the courtesy to respect the fact that this is something that is important to me instead of laughing in my face. And the people that died! Show some respect to them! Arrrrggghhhh!!!
Sorry I just had to vent! I wanted so badly to just slap his face!
Anyone else know/met people like that?
