You're Stupid Like My Daughter
So my elderly Asian co-worker, T-Rex, tells me that I'm stupid like her daughter. I was surprised and I guess she thought that I didn't know what she meant, so she gave me a wonderful example - "if she wants to bang her head and bleed, she will." I never call her out on her back handed comments, but this time I did. I usually become emotional and so stressed that I'm pretty sure my ulcers can produce diamonds - imagine that coming out of your urethra. I would think it would be very similar to a UTI - painful to let a single drop of urine dribble out and amazement that you've just peed wine. I didn't expect much from T-Rex, which was probably the best because she apologized for calling me stubborn, but throws in this gold nugget - "I'm just calling it like I see it." She clearly did not recall the conversation clearly because she didn't call me stubborn, she called me stupid. So I did what any other grown ass woman would have done, I told my boss.
