I don't understand. That's not what discreet means.

It just annoys me when they spell it 'discrete'.
That's a totally different word....

At least you didn't say 'discrete'

But still, wtf?

Yeah that annoys me too. Started noticing with breastfeeding, I always answer I am discrete I don't stand on the table announce I'm about to breastfeed - apart from the time I took my youngest into a radio studio and announced it to all the listeners!

The other one recently was about angel babies!

Agree with RustyBear

Well I posted on that thread saying my friend is discreet. But I did not say and did not mean that I don't see the needle. She injects at the table quite openly so if you know she's diabetic you'd know what she was doing. But I would say she's discreet as she just does it without making an announcement.
