I WORK FOR LOCAL ANIMAL CHARITY YOU KNOW".

IMHO...

This means, I volunteer for all those poor abandoned animals at the animal shelter, and even though I have know clue what I am doing, I know everything there is to know about all animals, and those people who own animals don't have a clue.

You don't really think that people who work at animal shelters have no clue what they are doing, do you? And are flat out announcing it on EHell just like that? That is how that sounds. I hope you mean just that really rude woman.

Yes, just that rude woman. Someone who know animals can tell the difference between, that dog is a little warm, and holy smokes, you need to take care of that animal right now, it is distressed.

I know plenty of wonderful people who work with animals, and know what they are doing. It's the "do-gooders" like above woman who just screams incompetence when they have a reaction like that.

Mental Magpie:
That's how I read it, wonderfullyanonymous, that you just meant her.  For what it's worth, I also think that's what the woman really meant.

:) Glad to hear it. I figured that was probably what you meant ... i may be a wee bit oversensitive when it comes to animal shelters. Thanks for bearing with me :)

There's always That Person - the one who works (or once worked) somewhere, knows absolutely nothing about what the rest of the staff do, but assumes that he/she is more knowledgeable than any of them, no matter what their degrees or experience. We know this, because they insist on telling everyone. It could be an animal shelter, auto parts store, pharmacy, plant store.... That Person is legion.

Sounds like a woman I used to work with. I worked at place that serviced the needs of Deaf people. This woman had a Deaf son. It didn't matter if 9,000 Deaf people stated they needed something a certain way...she knew better, because she had a Deaf son. No exaggeration, she would say it at least 3 or 4 times a day. To people who themselves were Deaf.
 For years after we left every so often someone would say, "Did you know former coworker had a Deaf son?" and the rest of us would crack up.
