I was laughed at today

There is some malicious gossip going around in the apartment building I stay in, most or all of it is true. Stuff about my very odd family (I dont want to go into details, but the chances of someone having a family like mine are really very low), and also how in the last 6 months I sometimes shout at my mom, because of the combined effect of her passive aggressiveness towards me sometimes and also my bad mood due to the depression I have. The shouting started 6 months back in the apartment we moved to 3 years back.

But even in the 1st year of living here, there were a number of instances (5 or 6) in which some people would ring our door bell and then feign to have accidentally come to the wrong house.

This couldnt have been a co incidence if you know your probability. Apparently, people just wanted to take a look at the local Adams family (I would hardly go out of the house back then & its also a very big building, so not everyone had seen everyone else).

Few months back there was also an incident in which an older man known to my father as well as me, who was also waiting for the elevator in the lobby with me, feigned no knowledge of the elevators arrival by looking the other way. All because he did not want to be with me in the elevator. And I thought untouchability was long over!

But today I was laughed at. There is this other younger guy who most probably knows about my shoutings based on his past behaviour with me. His father expired just 2 days back and he had taken an off day and was chatting with (what I assume to be) his cousin sister in the building compound for very long. I had gone for some shopping when I saw them and they were still there when I came back in my car.

Their placement in the compound was such that they could easily see the faces of drivers of all incoming cars. And when the guy could clearly see my face when I came inside the compound, he broke into a ear to ear smile & then mentioned something to the cousin and then she also looked in my direction and broke into a similar smile.

I dont know how to react in such situations or cant react aggressively, so I immediately changed the direction of my gaze and pretended I didnt know what had just happened. Needless to say, now she knew my story too.

Anyway I am hurt that now people are literally laughing at me. I wish I had the physique to confront them and beat the shit out of the guy. But he is twice my size and atleast five times stronger than me. Like for many other enemies I also entertained the thought that I could hire goons, kidnap this guy and give him such a treatment that he scarred for the rest of his life.

But I dont have the resources for that also. I could only brood over this incident over the next few days. So I thought I would upload my story here with the objective of lightening up. Thanks for reading guys.

Being laughed at is never fun. I think most of us here can relate to those feelings. You do sound a little paranoid (who isn't, right?) though. It's hard for me to give any advice (not sure it's even wanted), but wanting to beat the shit out of someone for staring and lauhging at you isn't good (you'll probably end up murdering your whole appartment building;)). Be strong and don't let people know you care about how they behave towards you. If you do want them to know, I don't think it's necessary to beat them. Have you ever confronted anyone that behaved weird?

I must say i'm quite curious about your family now.. Maybe you can go a bit into details for us to better understand your situation and your feelings. Nobody here is gonna make fun of you, I can tell you that for sure!

Cheers

i agree,perhaps the best thing to do for now is pretending to not have a clue whatsoever.

take care tarun.
