    I know the feeling, it’s so frustrating when negative people just want to spread their negativity and complaints instead of focussing on the things in their lives that they should be grateful for. And then bending your ear to have to listen to it in the process! I’ve used some of the tips you mentioned in the past when I found myself in such a situation 😉

      Hi Christina. It really was frustrating. I was so thankful my twins came and rescued me, but at the same time, I felt really sorry for her, being that unhappy. Let us know if you’ve tried anything else that works.

    Omg so funny! Sounds like some work parties I’ve been to. What I do is interior them politely and ask if they know where the restroom is. Then I go “find” the restroom and don’t come back.

      Will add this to the list of built in excuses. I think everyone has been in this situation. You want to be polite, but escape at the same time!

    During my first race, after my time at the water station as a volunteer ran out, I moved closer to the finish line loop to wait for my athlete… I was cheering on the athletes that had to do the second loop, too and the man standing next to me yelled at me for being clueless and shook his head in disgust. I told him that these guys needed support, too, and walked away to continue cheering. I still remember that man…

      What a horrid thing to do and makes no sense. Those are people that need the most encouragement! Glad you rose above the comment…
