My little taste
231
Fri, 07-05-2013 - 11:53am

Today I am getting a little taste of what it would be like if I were to SAH rather than WOH.   I am off work and DH is working.

I am getting  the errands done that I usually do Friday evening/weekends. Really enjoyed doing my grocery shopping when the stores were fairly empty.  In a bit I am going out for lunch with DD3.

I do realize that it is just a small taste.  If I were home full time I would not be doing laundry, grocery shopping or going out for lunch every day and there are some things that I would be doing that I am not today.

It just gets laughable.

You all might ask yourselves WHY it is that Spring and Jambles have trouble getting along with people on this board? It can't be ethnicity , age, educational level, number of children, marital status, etc...could it be behavior????

And yet you still continue using "Jambles."  Nope, I ask the question of you all.  When a person has the numbers in her favor, it just becomes kicking a puppy.  It's pathetic.  At first I was surprised everyone didn't see what I'm seeing, what's so patent.  But I'm not surprised anymore.

It's actually wholly irrelevant what Spring and Jamblessed post anymore.  At this point, it's only the mob response that's relevant and speaks volumes.

Does Jamblessed not like the shortening of her user name? I don't recall her ever saying so? She calls me bord, I call her Jambles. If she prefers no nickname, all she has to do is say so.

I have no problems getting along with others on this board, Present for me a topic and I'll debate it.  This board is obviously a popularity contest for you.

The board isn't a "popularity contest" for me, but I do have friends here. And Jambles (let me know if you object to the nickname), yeah, when you go around making snide comments about people, including me, that's indicative of have trouble getting along with them. People who are trying to debate/discuss ideas get irritated by having to deal with snide personal comments.

You forget how guilty you and your own friends are in snide remarks/insulting and cowardly attacks.  But TY for acknowledging and knowing where I'm coming from, If all we did was debated there would be little left for junior high attitudes.  You are familiar enough with other boards here to know how friendly and fair debating can be.

What's wrong with Jambles - You've often shortened my name to Chestnut (I prefer Hooligan, BTW).Is that a perjorative?

There is no mob mentality.  Her posting style does occasionally provide amusement to board posters and lurkers alike, kind of like MaxChandler, back in the day.

Some of us are snarky, (Bea, Regina, Graphtars, SavCal, and you) and I've got no apology for that, it's part of our DNA and usuallly well within TOS. If you put out something stupid on a public board, be prepared to defend or back down from it. We've all had our moments of back pedaling.

In the past few weeks, Jam and Spring have made a number of uncalled for comments to Empty in the past few weeks. Empty has never been snarky, confrontational or mean spirited, and it just common human decency for any poster to post in her defense if so inclined.

I am not forgetting anything, Jambles, and I am not sure what you mean by "cowardly attacks." But the state you made about getting along with everyone is patently false in light of your behavior toward me and others .
