Question???

I just want to throw a question out there.  There is no right or wrong answer.

Have you ever felt as welcome somewhere as a family of ants at a 4th of July picnic?

  1. LOLLLLLLLLLLLL….I always feel that way. Maybe that’s why I became a hermit or at least most of the time.

  2. Yes I have. I try to avoid situations where I don’t feel welcomed, but they happen,

    Yes, at one of the LQSs. Weird, huh?…… since I’m in there to spend money. It has become a last resort for most of the quilters I know.

      I’ve been in a LQS like this. I don’t go there anymore.

      • Eileen & Barbara. I’ve never understood why some of the quilt shops are that way. I have a rule when I go into any store. You’ve got about 60 seconds to acknowledge my presence and to be friendly. If you don’t, I can find somewhere else to spend my money.

    Si si totalmente si ,como dice Peggy uno trata de evitarlo,pero esos momentos están en mi vida por lo menos.Pero esos momentos no son lo que uno es,ni son la vida que uno tiene.Cariños.

    Oh Heck YEAH! Hubby was active duty Army for 27 years. That includes over 24 moves! I have been the new kid so many times and not everyone wants to get to know you because you “leave”.
    Now retired and feel more of an outsider than ever before. We moved back here for 2 reasons One my children are with in driving distance (1.4 hrs, 8 hrs. and 11hrs) and I loved living here before. Now I often think of the saying “you can’t go back home, it is never the same” Moving back has been very painful. so long story short Yes

    All the time. Often, I wonder is it me? Then, I take a little time to observe the people sending this message and “It’s them!”.
    This makes me think, perhaps they are insecure. Too bad.
    Like Barbara, I simply leave.

  8. Yes, many times. I am especially uncomfortable in large groups of people and in stores where I am the only customer and I feel like I’m being watched as though I’m a criminal.

    Truthfully I don’t believe you can go thru life with feeling that way at some point, sad to say I have felt like that several times, and quite honestly at my age, I usually just leave as soon as I can without it being an to insulting the hostess.

  11. If you or anyone you know are feeling like this, I’m soo sorry!
    No one deserves rudeness from other people!
    Here’s a hug!
    Take care, Leslie

  12. The answer is yes and was invited, didn’t just show up.

    Yes I took my MIL to a senior citizen social group meeting. I asked as we came in if we could sit anywhere and they said yes but we were kicked off one taable saying it was full and met with much resistance at another table as more people came in. I got extra chairs for people an still didn’t meet with acceptance. I won’t go again

    Yup, been there, done that.
    Ever felt like that in your own house?

  16. Thanks for all the replies to my question. I can usually make myself a place when I go somewhere but have had occasions when it didn’t work. There’s an online group that I just love because of all the great info that is shared. I feel like that ant at a picnic but I hang in there.
