It seems that we've had a few misunderstandings, around here. Its hard to tell sarcasm, in print, unless you know the person pretty well. I, usually, try to put an emoticon in, so that noone will take me TOO seriously. I've been a smart@$$, for 45 years and I'm too old to change now!
Cindy...my day would be waaaaaaayyyyyyy too boring without one of your funny, witty posts. I love them! Please don't change! Ever!
Lhezza, again....LOVE your posts! You are the best! You bring a smile to my face every time!
It's so hard to write the perfect thing every time without ruffling someone's feathers somewhere. We are all bound to slip up eventually. I have!
While people say not to read emotions in what is written, it is almost impossible to not do so. It's human nature and yes....some people may take offense to something you've written and most of the time, you are not even aware that you wrote anything offensive.
I've found that sometimes all it takes is just a simple apology and then it's over with. A misunderstanding is just that: a misunderstanding.
Now...when it is intentional.....well, then that's a whole different ball game!
So, the question is: Have I ever got upset? Not really. Unless, of course, it's directed at me and then, I handle the problem or....avoid it all together.
All in all, the good greatly outweighs the bad
