Cant beleive what someone said to me today


Hi,

I am more of a browser than a poster but what happened today has left me fuming.
I work in an office of 5 people. There are 4 30-35yo and a 49 year old woman (Anne). Only the 49 has kids and she does look down on the rest of us. Today me and another colleague was discussing christmas plans and how we are looking forward to it. Anne turned around, butted into our conversation and said that as we dont have kids we cant enjoy christmas. Im sorry i didnt realise that christmas is a people with kids only holiday?! We were all shocked that she came out with it..just as i was about to tell her where to go our boss walked in so we had to leave it.

Am i wrong in being pissed off?

Nope... not wrong at all... That's a pretty harsh view and comment on her side.

Christmas to me is an event all about family! Families grow up, but that doesn't mean spending time with my siblings and parents without children is any less enjoyable, fun, and fullfilling.

That's terrible! That wouldve rubbed me the wrong way too! Christmas is a family holiday, doesn't mean that has to only be for those who have children. Family encompasses a wide array of people. Parents, cousins, aunts, uncles, even some really close friends!
I wouldn't worry about it though, she seems bitter anyway.

Christmas is for everyone who wants a part in it. What a spiteful cow, sounds like she's jealous!
