Default Featherweight funny or not............

My daughter and I went to a quilt group yesterday. She took my white featherweight (which she is trying to steal btw) and I had my black featherweight. I had a lady there get very upset and yell at me that the white one was not a Singer featherweight. She has a featherweight and she knows. She told me "It's different". Okay then. Later on she was telling some people that a pieced quilt was not pieced, but an applique quilt. She has never appliqued, but she knows what it is. This was this lady's first time coming, unfortunately, probably not her last.

Ok she was just downright rude. She would be ok for me to deal with because I would probably ask her o you have one?" I don't know that I could tolerate some one like that without putting her in her place. Some people are to be pitied as my dear aunt would say!

Unfortunately, those “self-appointed experts” tend to show up everywhere......

Hopefully she will settle down and learn something from you all. I owned a forum and had to learn to deal with trolls and bad behavior, I also have been in groups in real life where disruptive people had to be dealt with. NOT fun!!!
Here are two links that may help to deal with the on line trolls and the difficult people we meet in real life.

At one group I used to frequent, there was a particularly overly helpful woman who seemed to 'know it all'. When my turn came to have to put up with her self-appointed 'assistance', I looked her straight in the eye and asked before she said anything to me, "May I see your Degree?" She promptly shut up!

Someone once told me to beware of "experts" as the term implies there is nothing more to learn, and that is just an impossibility.
I have experienced similar situations... I do wish I could have better control on my responses.
