    DefaultWitty comeback?

    So a friend of mine asked me how Diesel was doing since he'd gotten out of the hospital. So I figure if he asked he must care enough to hear, but knowing he doesn't have pets I didn't go into the whole mommy-mode loaded with details but gave him the hi-lites. His response...

    "Geez, that sounds like a pain in the ass, I sure hope you didn't get a lemon."

    A lemon? He dare categorize my beloved pup as an object, an inconvenience, a burden?

    Floored me. Silenced me. Window for a retort... gone. No one would ever say that about someone's child (you would hope).

    What is it with people who do not recognize that pets are like children to us?

    Chances are his foot will be in his mouth again in the future... Any ideas on what I could have said? I'm still shaking my head.

    "Maybe, but he's my pain in the ass, and I wouldn't have him any other way" comes to mind.
    -Or -
    "Not anymore a pain in the ass than when you're (insert family member) went through (insert medical issue). Is he/she a lemon?"

    What a callous jerk! I think the look of shock would have said all that needed to be said. I have known lots of people like that. My first lab, Mo, she was my angel. When we were transferring off Kodiak Island, Alaska to Yorktown, Virginia a lot of people asked if I was just giong to leave her. I said "Yep, her, the kid, the couch, the tv, we'll get all new when we move..." People that aren't pet owners don't get just how much they mean to us.

    I agree. Sometimes silence speaks louder than words. I'm sure your face said it all.

    Agree! I think of Saba as my kid that I did not give birth to. Weird to some, but I don't care. He's my world.
    People are juts stupid and insensitive.
