Hmm... After some of the conversations we had at a family dinner last night, this kinda struck a chord..

 I'll let it slide at first with relatives in that I'll go very quiet, make it clear I have no interest in having the conversation and walk off if I can, because my family seem intent on making remarks like that a hell of a lot, and there's not much to be gained by having the same argument over and over.  But I do make it clear that I'm taking offence.  When my sister's around, it's easier to play devil's advocate in that there's somebody to back me up and it's not just me sitting there being 'bloody-minded'...

None of my friends would ever make comments like that, or we sure as hell wouldn't be friends much longer. Family, unfortunately, you don't get to pick...
