I was very homesick and it was the straw that broke the camels back....made me feel a little silly now though, was my first attempt to join a conversation. Not sure I will again.

Maybe this thread has already derailed, but I hope there is a place for my little story about crying.

When I was a student I moved to Paris to be with my boyfriend while I did an internship so I was living with the bf and his sponger best friend who decided to move in after I did. It was a two room apartment so I got the bedroom and they shared the living room.

After weeks of nastiness, the short version is his roommate yelled at me for folding his laundry before it was dry and then went into a rampage about how I was a fat idiot with no savoir vivre hogging the bedroom rant crayzee rant loser rant while my boyfriend just sat there like an idiot. If his stupid self hadn’t decided to move in after me and my bf had had a spine to tell him no, no one would be sleeping in the living room. I digress. I walked out of there with just a change of underwear in my purse, ten pm on a Friday night in October. I was a student, didn’t even have enough money for food. I just had to walk after a fight like that and had no idea where to go. After about an hour I was still hysterical. Walking down the street a total stranger saw me crying, bought me dinner, calmed me down, paid for me to spend the weekend at the hotel plus cash for food until I could talk to my boss on Monday, who got me sorted with a friend’s place and a cell phone so I could continue my internship. Of course, the idiot bf blamed me for moving out and “making things difficult” when “they were willing to work it out” but that is another story. The guy never asked me to pay him back even though at the time (in 2000) he was out more than a thousand french francs.

Moral is: I’m always willing to brush off a eff off when I try if it means that at one point for someone I can pay it forward. You win some and lose some but you never know what reaching out can do.
I was once reduced to tears in the streets of Paris because some stupid Brit had been slicing onions on the RER ...

Might depend on her rep. If she is sporting some red blobs she might deserve it!
Ha! I will always go to someone crying and try to help, if they are actually crying wolf, on a scam or simply an attention seeker I would be able to move on. As for rep and red blobs, never thought of it before you mentioned it, are people on here really that obsessed?

No, I am blissfully unaware of any "joke". May be a total "whoosh" on my side. I just said it as I felt it.
