Moody, Moody

I have been in a proverbial bad mood lately.  I apologize if I have been a bit snarky but I think I just have the blues a little.  As I was trying to snap out of my mood the other day I ran in to an old acquaintance and she looked at me and said, "How are you?  You look tired."  Code for "You look like shit" as most of you know.  Well this just threw me in a tailspin and started trying to come up with other phrases that stupid people say that will put you over the edge.  I came up with a few...

"You look healthy"  code for "You look like you have gained weight or you look fat"

"That outfit is so interesting"  code for "That outfit is weird as shit and I cannot believe you wore it out of the house"

"Did you get those shoes on sale?"  code for "There is no way in hell that you could have paid full price for those."

"I am just being honest."  code for "I can say something bitchy and use honesty as my excuse."

These are just a few that I came up with.  One of my Twitter friends said that she was asked "when are you due?" and she was not pregnant (ouch!).  Do you have a phrase that just makes you want to slap someone?  Share please....

At our old preschool, there was a SAHM who would show up perfectly put together, not a hair out of place and when she saw me in sweatpants or whatever, would say, "Oh man, I wish I could have slept in today. I'm so jealous!"
