To be upset by the remarks of a psychic?

Obviously I do know that most psychics are charlatans and this one certainly was. Nothing he told me was spontaneous and was all based off my answers to his questions. He said some pretty harsh things though - AIBU to be upset by them even though I know it's absolute rot.

1) It's too late for me and I won't have natural children. I'm 34.

2) I go after guys that are out of my league (whatever that is)

3) can we talk about my weight? Would I go out with a fat person?

4) I'll probably never marry and should get a cat!

Somebody help me see the funny side here I'm a bit upset even though I shouldn't be.

COST : £35

Blimey. I do hope you told him to fuck off.

He's just a prick and a prick no one should be giving their business to. Don't ever spend another penny on a so called psychic.

YABU to go in the first place, what did you really think/want him to say?

If you know it's all rot why did you pay £35 to see this guy?

Jesus, what a twat angry
Make an effigy of him and stick pins in it grin

Wow, was he dumped that morning? How rude! Not much of a 'show' for £35. Whatever happened to "I see a talk, dark stranger and you are about to get fleeced £35..."

Bloody hell. Next time you want undermining and insulting, message me, I'll do it for £20.

Sorry, but this is where your problem starts. You need to realize that ALL psychics are charlatans.

Ignore everything he said, he sounds like a nasty shit.

I know bed but I've enjoyed the experience in the past - first time in ages and first time with this one. 2015 was a tough year I'll be honest I was after hope.

As to my weight yes I am overweight and working on a strategy for it. Why do people feel the need to point out to overweight people the obvious it goes without saying and is just embarrassing someone

OH REALLY?! I'm Overweight??! Well I never and there's me thinking I was a size 8!!!

ImperialBlether Tue 05-Apr-16 19:07:16

I was just going to say I'll do a better one for half the price!

Costacoffeeplease Tue 05-Apr-16 19:08:46

As well as being a charlatan he's also pretty stupid as he won't be getting any more of your £35s will he?

EverySongbirdSays Tue 05-Apr-16 19:09:48

I was kind of hoping for the I see a tall dark stranger comedy bus tbh - was in it for the LOLZ

I have actually read up on and can do Tarot card reading- no otherworldly skills necessary I don't charge for it though as I know it's only a bit of fun

Spread the word about him, he sounds like the Chubby Brown of the Psychic circuit. He'll not get much repeat business if he gets a rep as an insulting knobhead.

it's all BS.
don't let made up shite get you down.

They are all charlatans, every last one. And you pay 35 quid for them to talk marbles at you...you got what you paid for.

He sounds like the psychic from Phoenix Nights

EverySongbirdSays Tue 05-Apr-16 19:15:48

I know I know all you very reasonable people who say I should never have gone. So how do I stop myself feeling like he's predicted basically everything I don't want my life to be and shake it off ?

To be fair, you should get a cat. They are wonderful creatures. In fact, get more than one. Build an army of cats and then find this man and take him down with your army of cats.

most are charlatans grin.

One told my
Dad to have an affair. My mum was livid. I was pmsl.

EverySongbirdSays Tue 05-Apr-16 19:18:03

I do want a cat. There's a gorgeous pedigree online but I haven't got the £££ for her. I've always wanted a cat and I really like that breed

If you didn't throw away money on psychics, you could have one!

Ok I said most because I did go to an amazing one about 10 years ago who said all kinds of spot on stuff.

She was my first one. I've seen 4 since including this guy 3 were absolutely shit - 1 just ok

The thing is, OP, that you've given this man all of the power as to how your life will turn out.

You're obviously at a point in your life when you're feeling low - you should surround yourself with people who are happy and supportive and enthusiastic and friendly, not misogynistic idiots like him.

Any number of women will be able to tell you that your life can change really quickly - you can suddenly just 'get it' with weight loss and find you can stick to a diet that really works for you. You can suddenly meet someone and find you're happy with them. He could have said this to you - he could've said any number of things that would make you motivated and happy, yet he chose to say something negative, something that would hurt. He's not a bloody psychic, he's a woman-hater who takes money off vulnerable women and makes them feel worse.

Write bad reviews of him if you can - try to put other women off going to him.

Cock I knew someone would say that but this kitten is more than £500 so there's a slight difference
