    Best thing was from the wonderful person who loves me... said wants to marry me. smile

    The worst thing said to me, said I would never make it as a poet. I did believe it ... for about 55 seconds. LOL.

    Best:- I love you

    Worst:- your handwriting is like that of a crow's nest (this is the incident which hit me the moment I read your question so I guess it must be the worst...although there could be others if I think hard ;P )

    The best thing.  Years ago, we talked about renewing our wedding vows for our 20th anniversary.  My husband told me he would marry me again anytime, anyplace.

    The worst was when I was a teen.  I lived with my mom, dad had died and for some reason my friend's mother did not like me (likely because I am sarcastic to a fault, always have been) and all the kids were going in to another girl's house to make brownies and my friend's mother was there with the other girl's mom.  The other girl's mom pointed at me and said, you can all come in, except her.

    I never felt such hurt and embarrassment especially since I had done nothing to deserve it.  I'm 60 years old now and you know, that still hurts.

    My doctor, when I was born. He said that I was so big, "give him a nickel and let him catch the bus home." Unfortunately, it cost more than five cents to ride the bus nowadays.

    Best: From my aunt, "You have a beautiful voice. Have you ever thought of singing professionally?" She taught voice and guitar.

    Worst 1: From a group of high school boys, "What happened to you, you run into a freight train?" Har, har, har.

    Worst 2: From my father, "You can't be a professional singer, you're not pretty enough." He wasn't meaning to be mean, just "practical" (years before my aunt made her comment above).

    the best thing that was ever said to me was just as i was retiring a few months ago...it is very private so i cannot share the exact words but the essence of it was that i was so valued at the school and i would be greatly missed.

    the worst thing that was ever said to me was 'get out of the way OLD LADY'...now that was 14 years ago...I was a mere babe then... and members of our family age well so i really did not look even the age I was...
    i guess i am lucky if that is the worst that has ever  been said...

    i saw this question and i actually tried to come up with an answer but i couldn't. when it comes to bad things, i'm the type of person who really doesn't care what someone has to say and as for good things, i've had many good things said to me but there is no way i could say what the best one was.

    Best thing is that he wants to marry me

    Worst thing is someone who told me that i better look up to my sister's husband as an ideal man for a husband. Puhleeeze, his face are like craters of the moon AND he's not all that
