Does it bug you when...

..somebody says they are "starving" when in all actuality they just havent eaten in a few hours? I have an aquaintance that will correct me if I say that I'm starving when in fact I'm just hungry.

  • Lol nope. I say it all the time when I'm really hungry. Some people are just more literal than others I guess.

  • Ya It does .
    Most people dont know what starving is.
    Grown up how I did and you would.
    Once my mom left a 10 lbs bag of potats for me and 3 siblings for 3 weeks

  • No it doesn't bug me when people say that because I say it on occasion. I just mean I'm really hungry, sorry if that offends anyone!

  • We are prone to exaggeration here, so we say it like it's true. I've explained the difference to my kids, but it's not as much fun to say, "Gee, I'm sort of a little hungry. What shall I eat?"
