42- To some degree, yes. If we all lived in a utopia, we would all naturally be (relatively) open-minded and tolerant of others and their choices. Unfortunately, we as both a nation (speaking for the United States) and on an international level are far from achieving this goal at the current state we're in. Just thought I'd mention this, I did several persuasive papers on this basic topic over the years.(:
Utopias will never work. It's like giving a doctor a plumbers worth of pay, who the hell would be the doctor in a utopia? If everyone is equal, nobody would ever take the positions that would require actually thought processing power and hard work if they know they will get equal pay for an half - ass job.
Op, don't sweat it. People who have lost a parent, especially at a younger age are used to the average person not understanding. Everyone is ignorant to some things they just dont understand or have ever experienced. A simple "I'm sorry, I didn't know" will more than do. If the person is still pissed, then they like drama and can go f* themselves. I lost my mother when I was 10. And most people who joked around in a offensive way, had no clue that she was gone. I don't expect everyone to tip toe through life just to be politically correct. That's my 2 cents worth.
You couldn't have possibly known about her dead father, but you still should have been more sensitive about her gift choice. No need to be rude about it.
If I was a guy and someone got me flowers I'd be a man about it and accept them, what's wrong with flowers? A lot of guys get their friends/girlfriend or parents flowers cuz their pretty. So hey, maybe some Guys like flowers, you deserve it for being so judgmental.
Way to jump to conclusions. FYI they make flowers made of bacon and if I ever got those for Father's day I would be pumped.
