It's all good!  I forget that sometimes sarcasm doesn't come off too well in text form! ;)

lol I think it is the speak of the - being very general and politically incorrect - 'westie'. A nuff nuff who is more used to stealing than buying, we have plenty of those around here - every supermarket you go to you will hear people speaking like that. I am curious as to where in Vic you live I think if I were you I wouldn't even touch that order.

YES, we used to make black fondant, and it is maddening! We started buying black fondarific about a year ago and have never looked back! Same with red!

You ahould have said "only if you're one of those rude people with verbal diarrhea and no social skills."

LOL! Yes! It was funny, as she started the question, "Are you one of those creative people..." I was getting ready with my humble, oh shucks kind of response, but when she added "...that I hate?" I was staggered for a second and then looked her square in the eye and said, "Yes. I absolutely am."

AWas she at least joking?

AI think so. I had only just met her, so it was kind of weird. It sometimes amazes me what some people think is funny!

Was it possible that she meant hate as in envies? I have heard it used that way.

post #1935 of 3218

AYeah, that could be too. I wasn't offended (I really don't offend very easily, especially by people I don't even know.) but it was just so odd.

I guess it depends on the context, but I know a lot of people who say things like that but actually mean it as a compliment, meaning they they wish they could be whatever it is they're "hating" about you. A girl at work gives compliments by saying things like "That necklace is awful, why don't you give it to me and I'll get rid of it for you." It's funny now that I know her, but at first I was like "What?"..lol

Dude, I totally talk like that! I'm not kidding, either. I am going to try to record my Cake Safe with a 4 tier in it, going down a freaking mountain on Saturday, so y'all will be able to hear my redneck, bare foot self, in living color...yeah, i cuss too. Can't seem to help it, unless grandma or a client are right there

That's where I grew up - lol - what a small world!! My grandma used to live in Dandy - lots of rogues around there.
