Something someone said to you that made you want to punch them in the brain.

Let's keep this off the PnR stuff, m'kay?

I was getting my youngest daughter out of her Wed. night class at church one night and was approached by an older lady. She said something like this:

"What a beautiful, little girl. And all that blonde hair! How did she get such long, blonde hair?" Looking at me she added, "You don't have any hair." Like my daughter was suppose to be bald or something.

I wanted to say, "First off, dummy." (This would echo nicely in the halls of our sanctuary). "Her mother use to be blonde. Secondly, I shave my head. Go home and lie down and think about what you just asked me."

We were at a neighbors for dinner on Saturday night. Suddenly, we heard the neighbors daughter crying quite loudly. Turns out she had asked my son to jump off the bed onto her. He did. It hurt. She cried.

I would have told her you gave your daughter all your beautiful blonde hair.

mine would be when people talk normally but then start yelling a conversation at me when they realise I have an accent, as if having an accent makes me deaf or I will understand the language better if it is shouted at me

"hi, I'm Steve, nice to meet you"

But, actually, most of the conversations I've had at work over the past two months with this other department.

Which is why Friday is my last day.

The entire customer service department at Delta Dental is on my list. We've given them information at least 5 times total, and in writing at least three times, and they still are denying claims saying they don't have primary coverage information.

"Would someone mind if I did a panty raid of your house?" That someone's name will not be mentioned. This was actually said to me.

Yuck. Men aren't the cleanest creatures in the world. I'd rather raid a lion's den wearing a suit made of prime rib.

This happened in the hospital after my wife had our second.

I overheard an OBGYN doc trying to explain over and over again to a yuppyish couple about why they had to keep their slightly premie baby boy in the hospital a couple more days because of bouts of apnea. The doc stated numerous times that in cases of apnea (when respiratory efforts stop for more than 10 seconds (20 seconds in infancy)) it was hospital policy to keep the baby for observation until the apnea subsides. The parents just were not getting it. What made me want to punch the dad in the brain is when he said, "Well, I don't know doctor...I think maybe what Connor needs is just a change of environment."

Luckily, the parents finally relented. Little Connor stayed a couple more days. Oh, did I ever want to smack that guy upside the head.

My little brother always stuttered when we were kids. Every now and then somebody from school (either his or mine) would say to me something like, "what wrong with your brother....is he ******** or what?".

Yes, I wanted to punch them in the brain.....and sometimes probably went beyond just 'wanting' to do it.

I was probably on the other end of this....

Several years ago I was in the bathroom at the mall. This older guy with gray hair and 50-ish looking comes in with 2-3 year old. I say, "Ahhh, grandpa has the kid for the day" (in a friendly way). He says, "I'm his father."

Felt like such an a-hole. Apologized, ran out the door and have never spoken to another stranger again.

On the subject of kids and clueless comments: My wife is very fair (strawberry blond hair, blue eyes); I'm very dark (my mom is Mexican). We have boy-girl twins and my son takes after his mom and my daughter takes after me.

At an extended relative's wedding, some lady comes up to my wife when she's holding our daughter and says "Oh, what a beautiful girl! Have you had her since she was a baby?"
