(That's a really old picture of my grandpa. One of my favorites :) )
Ok.. So I had to share this with all of you..
This is a true story.. Happened yesterday.
Yesterday Aaron was walking the dogs.. Well actually, before I start, let me just say; I really freaking hate the neighborhood I live in. (What happened makes it worse, but I've actually hated it here since as long as I can remember.. All the people in this neighborhood are so mean and nosy. They seriously could probably tell you more about you, then you could even tell about yourself..)
Well, anyway.. Yesterday..
Aaron's walking our dogs. He runs into one of our neighbors (she's not a direct neighbor, but she lives a few houses down.) We always try to avoid this woman, because she's very blunt, and it comes off very rude (for instance, When I gained about 15lbs a few months ago, I was walking by her, and her exact words were "Your getting fat" no joke) So anyway, Aaron is trying to just walk by her house.. and she comes over to talk to him (It's no secret in my neighborhood, that Grandpa has Cancer now)
Here's the conversation they had: ( I won't mention her name, to be nice. A lot of my neighbors frequent my blog )
Rude Woman- How's Dave? Why is the boat outside of your house?
Aaron- Well, Dave is having a good day, so he's going to go out on the boat.
Rude Woman- What do you mean, good days?
Aaron- He has days where he's really sick, and days where he feels pretty good. On his good days, he try's to get out to do as much as possible, while he can.
Rude Woman- Oh. Dave is so lucky, he has the good Cancer.
Aaron- Excuse me? Dave has TERMINAL Cancer.
Rude Woman- Yeah, but Dave can walk, and get out. When I had Cancer, I couldn't even walk. He has the good kind.
At this point Aaron was furious, and he just walked her off.
Now I'm going to actually pipe in..
Are you KIDDING ME?!?!?!?! Does she think it's a competition?! Grandpa can walk.. Thank GOD. All this piece of work cares about is if her Cancer was more painful then his. Who gives a crap! I cannot believe this woman! Even though we don't like our neighbors, we have always shown them respect. This woman has completely lost my respect. How can you be so heartless? My grandpa is DYING of Terminal Cancer.. and all you can do is.. I don't even know what to say.. Beat him? Congratulations?
When Aaron told me what was said.. I just couldn't believe it.
I have never encountered someone so insensitive. I'm sick to my stomach just thinking about it!
I'm off to bed everyone. I just wanted to share that with all of you really quick.
