Variations - "You're so brave, I could never do that".
Said By - Neighbors, friends and colleagues.
Why I don't ever want to hear it again - I've heard this used in a couple of situations. It was uttered many times when I was having chemotherapy. I think it is something people say just so they have something to say to you nicer than "Dear God, You look like hell!"
The problem with it in this situation is that it implies choice. The alternative to "not doing that" in the case of cancer was to roll up in a ball and wait to die. Not exactly the plan I was working from .
The other time I have had people say this to me is if I am going to do something like go to a concert or a movie by myself. Thankfully my mother taught me manners and I do have some social skills, otherwise I'd slap these folks, mostly women, upside the head.
