Ok, this I submitted to a bulletin board, but ya know, I like to be efficient and recycle.
You all read the story recently, someone invited me for Shabbos on the pretense of wanting to host someone who is alone on Shabbos. I think before he even made kiddush he started in... he felt I should move to Passaic (mind you, I'm modern and attend a CUNY) I said, "I can't move. I'm in college." He actually said maybe a volunteer organization would pack my stuff for me. He also said, "college is cheaper in Jersey." Ummm, out of state tuition cheaper than in-state tuition? Well, I didn't know the guy and he just had an answer for everything. He even said I should go get new pictures for Frumster. Yeah... my pictures are professional headshots that go for $250/$300, I know no one is paying that just for pics on Frumster.
MAN OH MAN am I sick of people feeling entitled to judge me based on my status of single. Maybe the married folks married nebachs. I sure thought this guy was a neb but, I was raised to bite my tongue. Although, I spoke up and told him something like, well you only invited me to tell me to move to Passaic.
I told people were supposed to learn, "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all."
