Why do people feel the need to bring people down? Can't you just keep your mouth shut?
Me: I'm so excited! I'm getting a new foster dog next week.
Co-Worker 1: Why would you do that? The last one tore up your blinds.
Co-Worker 2: There goes all your freedom!
Co-Worker 3: A basset hound? It's going howl while you're at work all day.
Co-Worker 4: Shelter dogs always come with problems, anyways. Good luck.
It's pretty hard to just smile and nod when inside you are screaming, "Screw you, assholes!"
