Why can't people get along???

It drives me crazy at how upset people can get over opinions. I just don't get it. I know that I have my days when I get aggitated, but to call names because you don't agree with someone is childish.

I am not talking about anyone in here, it's just family mostly and people close to me. I hate being stuck in the middle!!!!!!!!!

  • I feel ya. My dh and his mother got into it over something, I'm not sure what. But she is acting like a child. She usually calls every 2 days to check in on the kids, well since she and dh are into it, she hasn't called in 3 weeks! Idk what they are fighting about, the kids and I aren't a part of it.

  • Eh, what can you do... people are the way they are & all you can do is pick a side or stay out of their mess altogether.  I say it's 5:00 somewhere- have a drink & relax :)

  • I agree; I wish people could just live and let live. I have my opinions, but there's no law that says everybody has to think I'm right.

  • hahah yeah ladies.. it's just so frustrating to see how people that you love argue over stupid stuff. It's probably going to get worse so I guess I am just going to gear up for the arguments.. lol gotta love it!!

    and even though I don't drink often... I could probably use it right about now!! lol

  • People and their own opinions matter to them quite a bit.

    It's their own personal territory in a sense.

    I guess if somebody doesn't agree with them, it's naturally taken as an offense against them and their own person.

    IDK It's just life. ; )

  • Some people thrive on drama and would never admit to being wrong about anything.
