“I’m just trying to be helpful.” Really?? Thanks but no thanks.
In a week about looking at epic floods in Houston and equally epic examples of humans helping humans, I am going to try and relate the instinct to “help” with those of us who have been on the receiving end of a lot of “helpful” comments as we’ve managed our weight issues.
I’ll let you decide if you have received more “helpful” comments than unhelpful.
I reference articles about a South Carolina school principal, a Toronto orchestra, and Project Runway Season 16.
I chose my photo of kohlrabi for this episode because they remind me of grenades. Sometimes “helpful” people make comments as if throwing word-grenades.
