Lol.Iam Italian.If I could use my hand in this forum it would help.I cant spell to save my soul.It might help get my point across.

I feel like I am a less effective communicator without my hands (I tried sitting on them while teaching an Interpersonal Communication class to prove my point to the students) It was really difficult and frustrating.

Without hand gestures, facial expressions and voice inflection, we are often misunderstood. :rolleyes:

Threads that start with the declaration "fill in the blank" is NOT gluten free, with no more justification than "it had to be because everything else I ate yesterday was safe". And the product clearly contains no gluten ingredients.

Another one. "The person on the phone wouldn't confirm it was gluten-free". So it must have gluten, right?

best regards, lm

Larry, you called it!

That is one of my irritants as well.

And finally, people who start new topics about the fries at McDonalds. As if the hundred or so we already have had since 2006 haven't addressed all the questions. :( :angry: :angry:

When you politely disagree with someone, in return they call it an "attack".

I think this one comes from the following:

We talk about celiac disease. We also talk about things that affect celiacs (the people) So people get the two confused and call celiacs the disease instead of the people who have the disease :P

Yes!! For some, any disagreement is an argument or an attack, not a discussion. :unsure:

Tied in with that is another of my pet peeves - the assumption that every single time someone feels weird, they must have gotten into gluten. It can't be a virus, another intolerance, food poisoning, or simply a bad day.

I have a bigger pet peeve though that drove me off the board once in frustration. It probably will again eventually. There is a collective refusal to accept new ideas about celiac disease and gluten intolerance, to the point of persecuting people who suggest something new or different. There are people on the board who think they know a lot more than the real experts who are publishing peer-reviewed research, but they generally don't. It gets quite tedious and frustrating, coping with the "board think."
