Everyone has bad reactions to things at times. You (or MD) can hold a grudge against that person for a bad reaction for the rest of their lives, or you can get over it and move on.

Gralson: my husband (works out of town).
Auto: my girlfriend (lives with her husband Zoffee).
The most dangerous phrase in the English language is "we've always done it this way."
