There I was, minding my own business, sitting alone in the canteen and feeling stressed by events at w**k. She breezed by, lightly tapping me on the shoulder as she passed. And she *actually said*...

'Cheer up, it might never happen'.
smiley - groansmiley - yuksmiley - steam

What made it worse, in a way, was that she was heavily pregnant - surely a good reason to be grumpy if ever there was one - and yet she was still being oppressively cheery. And soon she will bring a small person into the world, and that small person will be brought up to believe that it's wrong to be grumpy. smiley - sadface

Anyway, I didn't say a word in response. I just gave her a Look. smiley - bigeyes
The Look must have been pretty scary, because she's left me in peace since then!

smiley - steamOoooh the heartless wench! How smiley - bleeping patronisingsmiley - grr
I empathise.
When people say that to me I look at them in the manner that someone who says such a thing deserves to be looked at and tell in devasting detail what has happened.
I'm sure they never say such pointless things again.

There is only one thing worse than being Gosho, and that is not being Gosho

When people say that to me I tell a dirty big lie in order to make them feel really bad - I say something like "It already has happened, my father/mother/sister/wife/daughter died last night".

Works every time smiley - ok

I have to admit to using 'Cheer up' as a conversation starter to women in clubs...

Shameful I know, but its always a good one, a conversation usually does start from it...

smiley - groan Bob, you're a disgrace to PUDDING! If you did that to any of the female portions of PUDDING, I'd hope that they'd tell you to smiley - bleep off! Still, at least you know it's shameful behaviour, so maybe there's hope for you!

*Hangs head in shame*

Not like I actually want them to cheer up, I just want to start talking to them, and its as good a way as any...

And if someone said no, Id say, well a good thing too, and reveal my true puddingness...

But yes, it is shameful...

well if someone said that to me they would most likely get a smiley - cheerup inserted in a rather delicate place! (no offence Bob!)
