I don't like the feeling of being walked on and that is how I feel when I hold my tongue. Just don't lower yourself to their level. You can be tactful and blunt at the same time.
    I agree with the statement of not going down to their level, but you can't allow them take you down either. That's what I'm learning just now. I normally take it and keep my mouth shut but have been learning more and more to defend myself when i'm in a situation where I know it's just not right and I mean all that outside of work.
    When at work, because we are dealing with sick, injured and stressed patients, I take it and I laugh out loud in my mind or behind closed doors

    Thanks everyone, I think I am going to start speaking up for myself now. Usually I keep quiet, but I'm not so sure they are relizing that my silence isn't me accepting what they said or that I don't care.... but, specially when I see a smug smile after a nasty comment - I guess I should just come up with a one liner that would make them aware of how out of line they are.

    I have a few one liners I could say, but I don't think any of them are very tactful.. and would probably be more like throwing gas on the fire.

    Hey madame Ozzy :) If you look at my thread "I can't stand it" in the general horse chat section you will find the exact issue in there. Genuine horse owners I think will always run thru that same issue. I just had someone last week give me a good blower about how nasty my horse is and I still feel mad at myself for sticking up for it. We are going thru the same thing darling.
    If you find a good phrase, let me know

    Keep your chin up, I think they're just jealous they don't own the beautiful horses we own ;)
