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.

No, you are thinking of me.  I try to announce whenever I've reported a boardie.  Obviously a rare occurrence as I don't have the luxury of an employer sponsored time at the computer all day.  Show me when Spring has  "admitted" (your word, definitely not mine) reporting people.

Have I been nasty to Spring and Jams? Outright nasty? To the extent if calling them bad mothers, questioning their competence at their profession, that sort of thing? Calling them idiots for spending money on children's orthodontics or private tutors for a child with a disability? No. I've belittled their arguments and positions, and called them out for bad behavior, but outright nasty? I've probably lost it a few times over the years, but nothing like the constant belittling of my profession or my ability to carry it out. I've said they were wrong when they were wrong.

And I know for a fact that Spring reports offense quite often - She often admits she does. And why does it matter of one person, or many people report her offensive posts? She wouldn't have been banned unless she violated TOS over and over again.

The only time I report is for personal information and extremely offensive attacks, the passive aggressive stuff isn't worth the effort and neither are lies, there are just way too many.

Curious....why don't you ask the same question of spring and jams?

<<Of course you don't because then you would realize what you are saying is just PLAIN WRONG.>>

You meant that I have sympathy for people who are constantly spoke to with passive aggressive and mean comments instead of responding to attempts at civil and polite conversation?  That is wrong, how is that wrong?   And please use actual facts instead of your made up comments about being a doormat...tia.

Why yes, she has.  Poor thing, I'd hate to think she uses this as a gauge for real life.  I hope teachers behave better than this.
