People can be pretty rude. Whether it's a child who doesn't know better, or a grown up that should. Nicole Cliffe was recently shocked by the exchange that another Twitter user had with their husband's ex-girlfriend...
My husband's ex girlfriend once held my hand and said she had something to tell me. Braced myself.— lucyinglis (@lucyinglis) December 20, 2017
'Kurt Geiger has a sale on, and those shoes are so pretty for women with thick ankles'.
That exchange prompted Cliffe to ask the people of Twitter the rudest thing anyone has ever said to them.
On a related note, what is the rudest thing anyone has ever said to you that would be funny to share with us? (The rudest thing is sometimes too upsetting.)— Nicole Cliffe (@Nicole_Cliffe) December 20, 2017
And yes, they get people brutal. Cliffe started with her own example.
(In my youth I once removed all of my clothing in front of a young gentleman during the prelude to Activities and he looked me up and down very carefully and said “you’re sexy because you’re so smart.” This is obviously why I work out constantly now.)— Nicole Cliffe (@Nicole_Cliffe) December 20, 2017
Of course, one of the first was from a guy on OKCupid.
And apparently church can be just as bad.
:( When I was dating my now-husband, near-strangers at church just constantly said variations of "ARE YOU SURE, I MEAN HE'S NOT MORMON OMG". Mormons can be the worst.— julianne weis (@julianneweis) December 20, 2017
Most were from guys, though.
Didn't have to ask him if I was the first black girl he dated though...— A Queer Mermaid 🧜🏾♀️ (@C_GraceT) December 20, 2017
What does this even mean?
once i told my coworkers i was from indiana and they said, "that explains a lot."— Claire Fallon (@ClaireEFallon) December 20, 2017
"He's way out of your league."
Just an unending stream of "THAT'S your boyfriend?" "That's YOUR boyfriend??" "No, sorry, of course, you're a very pretty girl." 😐— SantaKateW (@SaraKateW) December 20, 2017
"I donated a kidney to his mom, so he can't break up with me until it quits working."— Cold Yule Dad (@old_new_dad) December 20, 2017
Hell sounds like a pretty cool place.

I was 7 years old. In Sunday school. It was the Pastor who said that.
Kids are brutal.
Actually lost my bearings for a second there because I had pretty much been wondering the same thing. I protested that I did other things too, not sure why I felt like I had to explain myself to a seven-year-old. I told him “I also write!”— Mara “Get Rid of the Nazis” Wilson (@MaraWilson) December 21, 2017
Believe it or not, that kid was one of my favorites.— Mara “Get Rid of the Nazis” Wilson (@MaraWilson) December 21, 2017
Those were painful.
