Hi all, just needed to vent about a conversation I had with an ignorant person yesterday! I have been up at my county fair every day because my husband does the first aid up there, well one of the other guys that does first aid and I were talking about how much our county humane society wants for a new building (3 million dollars). He said that he thought that it was was ridiculous amount and I asked him if he had ever been to that facility because it is clearly too small and falling apart! (I groom the animals there occasionaly for volunteer work) He then stated that they would not have that problem if they "got rid of some of their animals", SOmeone else piped up and said they thought that the adoption fee was outrageous and this other guy then says, thats not what i meant by getting rid of them and then proceeded to make a gun sound effect! I was so furious that I wanted to scream at him, but my husband has to work with him for the rest of this week, so I just stormed out of the building, but now I have to spend the rest of the week with him and I don't know how to be around him, I can only walk over to the animal barns so many times a day, lol. Does anyone out there think that I am overreacting or am I right to be this angry?
