Since my back surgery, I have been amazed at some of the comments people make to me. Sure, most are very sympathetic and supportive, but then there are those that make you pause. Here are just a few:
From one of my secretaries last week when she saw the shoes I was wearing:
"Don't worry, Haylie, ugly flat shoes are IN right now..."
Another one of my secretaries said this to me today:
"So, isn't true that once you have surgery on your back, you will have a backache pain the rest of your life?"
Have you all run into similar comments, or is it just the legal profession that brings out the zingers?
