Anyone else find it irritating when women on here BRAG or EXAGGERATE?

I find it so irriating when someone asks a question and someone always responds like their life is sooo much better because they don't have those problems. For example when people answer with things like "No. My husband doesn't get angry" or "No. My child doesn't get bad grades" or "No. I don't have to work" or "No. We have enough money"....SO WHAT? Is it not enough to just simply answer the question without having to add why you THINK your life is better?

    I can't speak for the OP but I saw your response to a woman who had a genuine vent about her husband. You know nothing about how things might have changed him, life does that to us regular people, and you gave a very snotty comment about how great your husband is and you would not have had two kids with him if he were not perfect. It was beyond rude and there was zero reason for it. You should be careful about throwing stones. Life is full of unexpected things.

  • Every single person in this world is opinionated and are going to post whatever they feel. No offense but if you cant take something that simple then maybe you shouldnt be on this site.

  • I see your frustration, but keep in mind that 9 times out of ten the people that want you think they dont have that specific problem, have bigger problems, so take it with a grain of salt, and thank your lucky stars that our problems are not major ones.. lol

  • It doesn't bother me at all. If they have a great husband or a child that gets good grades or even enough money that they don't have to worry about bills then I am happy for them. I am not jealous of them. I have a lot of good things in my own life. Why would anyone want to be jealous of a bunch of people they don't know and probably never will?

  • I probably shouldn't. The women on here are so catty. Thanks for setting an example!
