Is It wrong?

I was ripped a new one by a friend's sister because I said to her that if the puppy they were going to look at didn't work out for them to let me know cause we might be interested.

She said I was rude, insensitive and that in POLITE society people don't do that. She gave me this sob story about how long her sister has been wanting a dog and how sad they were when the last one died..etc.

This was really unexpected and for some reason really bothered me. I have had similar conversations with other people and none were offended.

I am just curious what you ladies think.

Uptight much?  There was nothing rude about what you said.  I thought it ws good offer, as not all dogs fit all families.

 I think I would have asked her what crawled up her butt and died...

Maybe they killed the last puppy and are feeling really guilty. Just saying.
