We're done here, unless there's a scientific breakthrough in earwax maintenance on the way, I think?
From this day on 'Earwax Personified' shall be embossed onto my business cards, thank you.

Seems to me that you find "sensitive people" to be a "problem".......Does that not make you sensitive to them?

Perhaps you should just deal with it and move on?
Life is hard, and there are enough important things to worry about without wasting a single second getting upset over a word someone else says. It's a fault, a weakness, to be bothered by such things, and we should all endeavor to be strong enough to handle such a trivial thing that you have no control over anyway, and when you inevitably find yourself thinking like that - take a moment to remember the childhood saying: sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.

See, even kids know what's up...

So yes, such troubles are indeed a burden of their own. Suck it up, buttercup.

But you are the one who is offended here, yet you are telling everybody else to "deal with it" or "suck it up"

I just find the irony amusing.

Couple of years ago, I was in Ireland on a business trip. Asked one of my co-workers if she wouldn't mind, giving me a ride to work. Had no idea I had just made a lewd comment to her. Re: 'Spaz'... It's news to me, that it offends some folks. Knowing that it does, I may try and be more careful in using it. ...as I am more careful who I ask for a ride..

Back to earwax though.. Truly, the mineral oil thing, has been a great thing for me. I mentioned it in my previous post here... but just a few drops, soak for a few minutes.. and my ears were spotless, when I went in to have them cleaned at the Drs offices. I do it now on a monthly basis... and my ears have never been cleaner. I wear hearing aids in both ears... and they let you know if you have wax buildup. Not so much with regular mineral oil treatments.

I'm not offended in the least. No irony whatsoever, beyond your assumptions.

.. a "ride" to work.. many years back when 18, I was working in construction where my pockets usually got filled with bits of wire, screws, nuts, sand, washers etc. Anyway I was paying for some petrol (gas) and digging through my pockets to find cash money I pulled out a few bank notes and some change, in the process pulling out a few screws with the coins. So in jest I counted out the £7.35 in notes and digging through the coins I said "..30p and a screw". I thought nothing of it, I did push over the remaining 5p but the "screw" word got, well The person at the counter was a busty young girl, all lipstick and hair-do. There was no ill intent on my part.

Offended? Feingned offence?

Time to close this thread it derailed many posts ago. Let's end on a laff
