    What is worst comment a complete stranger has made to you in a public place? How did you handel it?

    I've had people tell me "You look like you just crawled out of bed!" After I was up all night with q sick child.
    I've had people ask questions like," How far along are you?" "Is it a boy or girl?" "Are you pregnant or just fat?" When I am not expecting.

    I've had people say." You look like you're ready to tear someone's head off." When I was just verbally abused by someone who said they love me.

    I have tried to laugh, shrug it off, or turn it into a life lesson, but what has your experience been and how did you react?

    My future wife and I stepped out of a restaurant one night in Dallas and a bum came up to us and said "Hey, how are you all doin'? Girl you're so beautiful. What are you doing with him?--he's ugly! Hey listen, do ya'll want to buy some of these DVDs?" I said, "Why would I buy anything from someone who just called me ugly?" When he tried to open his mouth again, I told him to "f--k off". Then I felt bad, so I threw some change on the ground before getting in my car.

    Years ago I was on a break from work and walked over to the Market Basket grocery store and was buying a package of cookies.

    A lady who was one of our customers pointed and said to me, "If you eat those cookies, those pants are going to get even tighter."  Geesh, I wanted to die - I could have been buying them for everyone at work or dessert at home. It was just rude.

    I just grinned at her like it didn't bother me and said something smart like - oh I don't think they can get much tighter.  But inside I was mortified.

    I was standing in the check out line in a store and this woman was standing there just staring at me.  It made me a little uncomfortable so i just looked  her in the eye and shrugged my shoulders at her, nodded my head, and silently voiced "what?". 
    She came over to me and said.  "I apologize for staring but i was just wondering why you would dye your hair and not your beard?".   ( have a full beard that is pure white and a naturally brown colored full head of hair).  I just laughed and explained: "I may look artificial to you, but believe me when i tell you everything you see is all purely natural".  "They say the part that turns white first is the part that is used the most, so i guess it would indicate i use my mouth more than my brain - not unlike you."
    The cashier looked at her, then said to me:  "Wow, some people sure are rude, aren't they?". (Hopefully, she was referring to the woman who was staring, and not about my comments instead)
    "It's just human nature, ma'am, just human nature", i replied as i laughed at this whole scenario.

    About two years ago, I was suffering with a bad cold.  I went to the doctor and, as usual, had to suffer in the waiting room.  There was this punk kid with spikey hair (I guess that looks really good to girls his age) sitting about two seats down from me. "Like when was the last time you combed your hair, man?:  He said it with one of those wide toothy grins that I despise.  He was also displaying some of his breakfast meal when he did that.I replied (maybe a little too loudly), "When was the last time you brushed your teeth, man?"  His grin quickly disappeared with shock and anger as well.  It could have escalated into something much worse.  Luckily, his name was called.  As he walked by me, he of course said, "F*** you!"  I replied, "Well, you really aren't my type, but if I have a few beers, who knows."  I think that confused him.  By the way, I am strictly hetero.
