Well, I figured out why we just say, "I'm fine" when someone asks how we're doing. Last night, (on Facebook Messenger) an old classm - no, frenemy asked how my son and I were doing, and when I mentioned my macular degeneration, other eye issues, and my son's job struggles, she said, "nice." How in the name of all things bright and beautiful are sight loss and job search struggles "nice"? Sad thing is, when I told my roommate, he said, "I'm not surprised. What more could you expect from her?" And I thought, "how about a little empathy and sympathy," but knew my roommate was right. There is a part of me that wonders what else this woman has said behind my back since we first met in 1983. But, I also know what she thinks of me is none of my business. Still, I am hurt. * As for the "going to bed now" part, "Nice. Going to bed now. Talk more tomorrow" was what she actually said.But, I don't care to talk more tomorrow with her.

Yes, you don't need to talk more with her tomorrow or ever... Who needs to listen to such hurtful words? Sometimes it's better to stay enemies than trying to mend the friendship only end up with frenemies...

True. Now, she did send me a message this morning asking her for forgiveness. I forgave her.

@Chellezhere Oh, wonder what prompted her to apologize... I hope she had a nightmare about the hurtful things she said to you... Did someone remind her or she realized on her own how rude she was?

@sishy7 We went to high school together and lived together for a while as adults. She is also disabled.but not visually. She probably thought about all that.

@mohit459, you must be careful on this site. It is even noted in the terms and conditions that disguising profanity in an attempt to avoid the foul mouth filter will not be tolerated. So, if you would like a gift from me, I will offer the following advice. Do not use any profanity on here (even with !, @, # $, or *) because it will get you banned.

@mohit459 Thank you for removing that "F-Bomb." That is not an acceptable word at all.

That "nice" response comes from someone who has no idea how to communicate appropriately with other humans.

Yes, it sure does. And, she calls herself a Christian. She even goes to church every Sunday, and some other days as well. But, the Devil sometimes hides in our churches too.

@Chellezhere Sometimes those folks are the worst when it comes to dealing with humans.

Yikes, the picture scares me. That's why I tend to be careful around people.

If you can it's best not to dwell on such things.

Being Italian, maybe I did not clearly understand the concept you wanted to express. However, I have always been told to be wary of people who speak behind others. In your absence, they will speak behind you! Did I understand well? If not, please forgive me. Regards Alessandro
