  • No, you weren't being rude, but some people are not open-minded enough to consider what could be practical advice (ie, trying not to worry yourself over something that may or may not happen) or are not willing to hear advice from someone who may be older, wiser, or have walked a road before and have some tips for surviving it.

    Here's rude--

    Answer: Why the hell are you worrying about shit that hasn't happened? Take a chill pill, biotch!

    Your way was not rude.

  • You were not belittling. She may be nervous and on edge over the entire situation. I would not take it too personal. You gave great advice.

  • I didnt find it belitteling at all. Maybe by saying to read the box she thought you were being sarcastic?? Who the hell knows. Some ppl just arent able to read anything typed without assuming its in a bad way. If you are bothered then PM her but I personally wouldnt give her the time of day. If she asked for advice she should accept it. No matter what
