What would you do and how will you tackle the situation if your dearest one is taking a dig at you infront of a person who likes taking digs at you the most? What if the dearest one appologise later and say that it was an instantaneous comment and not a dig...But you remember that this is not the first time it has happened?

Sometimes our dearest friends and or family members take things a bit too far. It is quite alright at times to joke and all in fun. But certainly there is a time and place for everything so if only people realize to think before they speak at times.

If only they thought before speaking...Alas then everything would be so perfect..so they dont think ha ha... But these jokes sometimes hit at the softest corner in heart..Only if they realise the pain would they not repeat it..

Hi Malpoa, wish you a very happy and prosperous new year. :) How is your daughter, Rida isn't it? And as to your situation, I go through it perpetually. My blood boils, and when I control my mind gets filled with lousiest of words for them. What's my solution, of course I take the person to cleaners, and then it is the next day. I am able to forget because I need this person to be alive so that I am alive. I know if he is not around, I would be finished. So life goes on. But yes, it is not a nice experience at all. I wish people were more sensitive.

A very happy and peaceful new year to you too dear..Rida is doing well...My little princess is going to kerala for a ten day trip next mth..awaiting it...:)) How are you and your papa? doing well? You wont believe what stuff I get to hear..Being a malayali, I have seen people giving massage to their kids with coconut oil...it isnt harmful at all..here they are just irritated with that oil...In this part of the world it is used only as a hair oil so when they see me suing it on her, they are like she will catch cold this that...i mean how can a child cath cold by the use of an oil? Sometimes they have no brains it seems...Or is it just to put me in pressure? I wonder !!!

Personally I know I would be a little upset, and probably be a little more cautious the next time. I know sometimes they do it in joke, but if it is not the first time they may think nothing of it even if it is bothering you. I know I would make mention each time later on around them that I did not appreciate what they did even if it was a joke, and they need to be more careful what they say next time around you and to others.

Even I have been doing the same..Now things have come to such a situation that I forsee what this person might say and avoid sayings things which might lead to tiffs...
