Thin Skinned

I was somewhat recently told by someone (this man is old enough to be my father) who knows nothing more about me than my name, that I regularly attend church, and that a colleague of his hurt my feelings once at church to the point of tears, that I am too thin-skinned.  Prior to this accusation, I had spoken to this man one-on-one once for about three minutes when aforementioned situation occurred. Yes, the words, "You need to quit reacting this way.  You are too thin-skinned," were actually used.  Yes, I stood there and took it with a smile on my face the entire time.

Um?  Isn't this comment an exclusive right of those who know you extremely well?  Wouldn't this greatly upset someone who is thin-skinned?

They went on to tell me that I need to quit being so thin-skinned so that I can get married before I am 31.  Too bad I'm already 31.  I guess the hopes are dashed of getting this crazy girl married off before she is too crazy to marry.

I have to laugh (after I finish being completely irritated).  This individual only has my best interests at heart, right?

I am still mad about this story. No relative stranger should ever tell another responsible adult they behaved "the wrong way."

And you are NOT crazy.
