  • No matter how right you are, someone will always have something bad to say about you.

    In one case, my wife, an international opera singer, was headlining an opera written especially for her. The Wall Street Journal reviewed the piece (I think because the royal family of Thailand and the Crown Prince of Belgium were there), and called her "wooden", in a bad way. However, her character was a certain rose bush of Thai mythology.

    I think this is analogous to Andy's "Can't you just..." thing. People open their mouths when they should not. :)
