When you vent... do you need a good come back answer?
Wish you had a snappy come back whenever you are chatting about being a caregiver with someone who never was in that position? It is amazing the things some people will say. I know they mean well.
Example, I am the "driver" for my parents, have been for a number of years. I still am employed, so I need to take time off from work or reschedule my work day, which at times can become difficult and tiresome for me, plus I am no spring chicken, I am a senior citizen, too.
When I vent to someone outside the family about this, the usually remark said back to me will be "well, your parents drove you around when you were a child". That remark use to irritate me to no end....
I finally found a good reply back for that, "yes, but my mother and dad weren't in senior citizens when I was a child". That becomes an ah ha moment.
I was wondering if anyone here has some really good snappy remarks for things that are said. Let's share them.
