JamesCalifornia JamesCalifornia this has been dealt with a long time ago and i dont let that boy back in my home anymore ... i dont trust him and hes just a little too needy as it is ... he supposedly has a job now and i have told the hubs that the boy has been helped enough to stop giving to him
~ I see. Did not realize how old that post was. Glad that things worked out .

have you ever felt like someone is trying to follow you when you go out ? everytime i go do errands at the grocery store there is a rude old lady there and she smells of cigarette smoke and i have tried to politely tell her please go away and she refuses to listen to me ... shes starting to really bug me

If she doesn’t work there its probably coincidental that you both happen to shop at the same time. Maybe shop at a different time of day.

Sometimes there are 'eccentric' people who hang out in places... there is a man who sits outside a shop I go to regularly. I just smile at his chatter and walk away. If he were to follow me around the shop I would mention it to the staff there. This really isn't something to stress yourself about. :)

mani mani this lady smokes around me and i have repeatedly asked her nicely to go someplace else to do that and she ignores me ... i feel like she flat out doesnt care about my feelings and possibly anyone else that has allergies ... i just want to be left alone when i am at the grocery store , you know ?

Surely she's not allowed to smoke in the store?

In Australia people are not allowed to smoke at bus stops. If that's the case there you could report her. If she has exactly the same schedule as you then consider changing your schedule.

today was a awful day ... some woman that was at the hospital registration office was nasty to me and made me feel like i was nothing all day .. she was very rude to me
Some things to keep in mind... she was the one being rude and nasty it has no reflection on how you see yourself, she may have been having a bad day herself or going through something difficult in life. We cannot control other people only how we respond to them.
