Dear long-time friend,
Please stop telling me that I need to move on. I just lost my son 4 months ago. Just because I still cry occasionally doesn't mean that I'm not healing.
Sincerely, a grieving mom,
Dear math teacher,
Why do you make fun of me in class when I don't understand something?
Sincerely, why on earth did they hire you?!
Dear obnoxious girl,
When I said that I have/used to have Asperger's, the appropriate response was not, "oh, THAT'S why you're so annoying!"
Sincerely, And I'm supposed to be the one who doesn't know how to act.
Dear new person at church,
If you want to hold my son, you will approach where he can see you and hold your hands out and let him CHOOSE whether he wants to go to you. You will not come up behind him and snatch him from my arms without him even knowing you're there. I know you think he is cute (and I agree!) but to him you are a stranger, and I myself have only met you a few times. Back off.
Sincerely, A mama bear
Dear Ladies sitting next to me at Panera,
Please don't talk about me. I know I don't look the best, but I have my reasons.
Sincerely, grandma died yesterday, and our basement flooded. Didn't exactly have time to primp.
Dear guy who lives down the hall,
Please next time you see me using a feature on my phone you don't like, keep it to yourself. Chewing me out for having a phone you deem "inferior" and then telling me to never use that feature in front of you again was very uncalled for.
Sincerely, my Dad got it for me, and I have no problem with it.
Dear male friend's overly possessive girlfriend,
I can tolerate a certain level of clinginess, but refusing to let him talk his friend out of committing suicide because "there's nothing you can do to help now"? Really?
If you dont' want tomatoes on your burger, just ask us not to put them on. If you tell us you are allergic to tomatoes, then yes, we are going to remove both the tomatoes and the ketchup, because, guess what, ketchup is made from tomatoes.
Sincerely, the "moronic deaf" cashier
Dear Physics Teacher,
Please don't yell at me in front of the whole class when I ask you a question. You may have helped a kid across the room with the same problem, but that doesn't constitute as teaching it to the whole class.
Sincerely, now afraid to ask questions.
Please stop comparing me to my sister then saying I cant do it. It's confusing and it hurts
Sincerely, your daughter who's sick of all of it
Dear fake friends,
Please don't make a fake Facebook just to terrorize one of your "friends." You never know what she could do.
Sincerely, people like you are the reason people commit suicide.
Dear fellow crew member,
Please realize that you do not have authority to sit down the entire crew after a show and reprimand us for every little mistake. We are all on the same team, we'retudents, and this is college theatre, not a dictatorship. The world does not revolve around you, and I'm sick of having to mentally prepare myself for these "notes" so I don't burst into tears.
Sincerely, A fellow crew member who just wants everyone to respect each other.
Dear random guy at the bar,
Please use your words before you try to wrap your arms around me.
Sincerely, a conversation could have worked wonders
When it's supposed to snow the next day, it is not acceptable to say 'Since we're having a snow day, here's a project to do over it!'.
Sincerely, do you want me to have no life?
