This wasn't a recent event, but I figured I'd share it anyway, since it was fairly amusing and a prime example of someone getting involved in everyone else's business and looking like an idiot for doing so. I was with my mother in a store, and we were joking around. We were discussing a movie where the wife had been cheating on her husband. So I said something like, "Oh speaking of that, Dad found the Johnny Depp poster under your bed."
Some woman shopping near us turned and told me immediately to apologize to my mom. My mom laughed and said I was only telling it like it is (it was true about the Johnny Depp poster
) The woman said that if my mother wasn't going to make me respect adults, anything bad that happened to me would be her fault.
It was only a joke! Well, not really since the thing with the poster actually happened, but still! Incidents like that have happened to me since, but this was definitely the weirdest. How can I politely deal with this in the future? I mean I can't go around telling nosey people to shove off and not to hit their huge fat noses on the door on their way out. Or can I?
Thanks for reading.
