Thought of the Day 2010 #48 - Mother Hens

I spent some time today with a woman with the classic Mother Hen
syndrome. She hasn't had kids of her own, so I think that probably
exacerbates the problem. She'll ask a question or offer something and
if I say "No, thanks," she will ask again and again until either I feel
the need to yell NO and hurt her feelings or just cave to let her be
"motherly." It seriously drives me batshit crazy. I try to avoid her as
much as possible, but I don't want to be rude as she is a very nice
person...a very nice person who wants to be ever so *helpful* even if it
kills both of us. AAAAAAAck.
