I showed my ass...

Additional...'moods'...annoyed, bitchy, incredulous, ranting...in hindsight{should have ignored}

ONE BIG RANT!! MY indulgence!! Sorry!!

A little background {I’m sure the ladies can relate} I’m not trying to brag or sound conceited{far from} but, I assume most women on this site are overwhelmed with emails. Since joining this site I have always tried to answer most {if not all} emails. Even the ones in the ‘filtered’ email...those do however have a lower priority...I currently have 121 emails in my ‘filtered’ mail box {don’t get the wrong impression} I’m not trying to ‘toot’ my own horn. I could just ignore all ‘filtered’ email and hit the delete button. But, I have tried to be polite and send some kind of response. YES, it does take a ‘hell’ of a lot of time...considering I also what to check out other ‘venues’ like the advice line, the magazine and most recently ‘blogland’...Anyway...my standard intro for my email responses is as follows...and then I add a personal comment.

MY INTRO....I’m sorry it has taken so long for me to respond, but you have to understand {I’m not bragging and I can assure you I’m not conceited} but, I have been overwhelmed with emails. I’m trying to be ‘polite’ and respond to as many as I can {if not all}...so...unfortunately, email is answered in ‘numeric’ order...

Sometimes it takes a few weeks or more to respond, but I eventually get around to doing so...I usually set aside a few hours during the week (otherwise I’d have no time to do anything else}...OK! So to get to the point of my ‘tangent’...and ‘Yes’...I realize I may have over-reacted...but, this guy just rubbed me the wrong way. I apologize for RANTING!!

Scenario: A couple of days ago, a guy requested to join ‘my network’ (most requests are in conjunction with a email} {{I check out requests and 'if' the profiles are cool 'why not'}}...this guy’s request just said, “it looks good”...{no email}...I was slightly throw-off by the reference ‘IT’ {military thing} anyway...he’s in my network...not even two days later HE sends this email...{{filtered I might add}}

I guess I had better move along ! Change your mind holer at me!

{{On reflection...I realize I may have been ‘harsh’ but, I’m human ‘It’...stuck in my mind!!}} anyway...I responded...ASS SHOWING...

Well. I have decided to actually ‘YELL’ ....’IT’ was degrading enough that you had referred to me/my person as an ‘It’... I let that slid...I do try to be understanding...but when...you had the audacity {two days} later to make a ‘snide’ comment {I assume this is not over your head} Dude, You are in-line with a whole lot of other ‘guys’ ... your shit smells no better than any other persons’ I just have to wonder...Who the ‘fuck’ do you think you are ??? Have you ever heard the saying ‘Patience is a Virtue’ maybe you should have a little!!
Get a grip!!

Damn gal I was just trying to make conversation and let you know I was still interested at the same time. But make no mistake about it, the last thing I want is a man hating woman. Besides you and I both know that if you were interested you would have said something already. I do apologize for coming off wrong but you need to learn to not be so judgemental. If I were as stupid as you say I would not be were I am today. So fuck you too! Now if you want to get revenge I own a big farm in Lester Ga. which is in Mitchell County. The phone number is 229 xxx-xxxx. Take your best damn shot and if you send someone they better be damn sure bad.

I'm confused..[make conversation...what a joke...Where? How?] {{And who is the ‘hater’ with the serious attitude...I don’t think it is me}} Showing my ‘ass’ to a guy I think is a jerk!! {being a Bi’ tichy...sure} does not make me a {man hating woman} THIS is my personal ‘opinion’ it just makes me selective!!

I have no further comments {for this guy} from this point on...as far as I’m concerned there is nothing more to be said... ‘someone’ else felt otherwise...

I discussed your and I conversation with a female friend and maybe you have been done wrong by males in the past...tell me what I said so I can explain. I think women are the best thing God created ...don't be so quick to jump the gun. You may miss something special. {edited version}

{{Is this the ‘special’ I’m missing out on???...some dude {with a Napoleon complex} who ‘blames’ ‘’‘IT’‘’ on everyone else}} I think this qualifies as one of those ‘Calgon’ take me away moments...Where did I go wrong? What did I do? OK, OK!! Besides showing my ass!!

Ya know, crud like that almost makes me ashamed of being male...

PS: LOVE the side-bar pic! Daffy's my personal life-coach... could you pass along where you got it?



Been a while since they last let me out into polite society. Resurfacing, catching a breath, & catching up.

And while I got my Broad-Brimmed Pimping Hat on, could I cajole all of y'all to Comment on, Alone In A Cloud? It's probably the best thing that I've written!

OhSo ... The way I read it, this guy may actually be interested in you, and he may not be such a bad guy once you get to know him. Emails, blog comments, etc. never seem to convey our thoughts and feelings the way a telephone conversation or face-to-face conversation can. Perhaps you have misunderstood each other? Why not call this guy and confirm your current impression or allow him the opportunity to convince you otherwise. In the worse case, you will have spent 10 minutes to confirm what you already believe. On the otherhand, you may decide that this guy deserves a second chance. I wish you well in either case!

There is a basic problem with the "Network" system. I do not join or invite until I have at least chatted several times. And I will not make comments until we have met and shred some time. To make a comment based on a profile seems a little presumptuos and maybe self serving.

As for the behavior, there is no rhyme nor reason for impolite or disrespecful behavior. To pursue it seems a waste of time. The real question would be what is it that has you stirred up besides what you said. A trigger was tripped, maybe time to unload that weapon before it become hazardous to self. And all perspectives are just that perspectives.

I hope something got lost between his brain and his keyboard. Maybe he thinks he said some nice things and he just forgot to type them. Think it over and if you can't see any good in continuing the emails just block him.

Rock{=} Glad to see your back ‘buddy’...how was the trip

I’m going to take the opportunity to answer comments made in one fell swoop...

TT...I do enjoy reading the comments you make...Sound advice

Mnt...Maybe I should re-think my network strategy...I only send requests to join, to people I have established a rapport with...the rest are just requests

OK...the issue is there was never any kind of communication between ‘us’ except for what is posted in this blog. As, I’m sure you all know you can write a little ‘blurb’ along with your request...this guy {I’ll call him Napoleon}...requested to join my network...his ‘blurb’ said...it looks good {I take exception to being referred to as an ‘it’} and Yes, I do realize my ‘exception’ to being called ‘it’ maybe a little strange. But, we all have our own little quirks! I have also indicated I try to respond as many emails as possible...even those in my filtered in-box. I’m under no obligation to respond to any email {especially filtered} but I do out of kindness and respect for the men who have taken the time to write.
Short version...1 Mar...added to network...3 Mar sends (1st email {filtered})...I better move on...YES...The whole scenario annoyed me {overreaction on my part highly probable} but, for a guy to offend me ‘that it thing’ and then to come off like the ‘fucking’ grand pooba ....{my only email} I ask him, not so kindly who he thought he was...and it went from there. {{but I look at things this way...with the number of emails received...your going to have to wait your turn {just like with anything else in life} he apparently thought otherwise}} To me it is only apparent ‘who’ has the chip on their shoulder...that is why I dubbed him ‘Napoleon’. Sorry, for being so long winded...you guys have a great day
