Being insulted

In Zac's during the 'love your enemies' discussion, Steve, who was leading, asked, 'Who's been insulted and not responded in kind?'

Lots of people put up their hands and Laura, who was sitting next to me, noticed that I didn't.
'Haven't you?' she asked.
'I can't remember ever being insulted.'

Laura burst out laughing and passed this on to Steve who said, 'She just doesn't realise it.'

Is that true? I mean, I know I'm insulted at Zac's all the time, but I don't take that seriously. They don't mean it ...

I tend not to register or remember insults as well. Most of them are so trivial or so ambiguous they just go straight past me. An insult has to be pretty damn offensive or hit a very sensitive spot for me to see it as such.
