Really? Adults really say this? I see this posted in here, and I've got a certain friend who says it regularly, and it sounds like pansy whining each and every time. To me, this is a phrase that is uttered by little girls and toddlers. You hurt my feelings. Is it really other people's responsibility to guard the feelings of adults? There are really adults in this world, and lots of them, who are so sensitive that their feelers get wounded? And they seem to expect that that matters to anybody outside their own heads? It's right up there with "that offends me", which is another stupid thing people say that just doesn't matter to anybody else.
Or is it just that many aren't capable of using adult language to describe emotions like anger, frustration, jealousy, envy, betrayal, or other negative emotions?
