At times when I thought I was being very polite and inocuous people have taken offense. I am then left staring at my screen wondering just what it was I said that was so terrible. Then I try to explain myself and wind up making it worse until I get tired or bored with the topic and I just say you are probably right or something along those lines.

I hate it when people beat around the bush. It just confuses me and I lose the point you are trying to make. If you think I am an idiot and doing things wrong just come out and say so.
I'm queen of short posts. I think. Can we get a poll going. Lol! Same thing happens to me. I am just popping in and out of threads, happily posting away and then BAM. It's like I personally accosted someone's mother. Wwwwoooooaaaaahhhhh. Relax. It's a forum. Lol.

I'm pretty laid back. Can't do emoticons on my phone :/ except the basic three or four. Ha! So I use LOL alot. It's my default

I have a ton, it's organic and I didn't buy it from Wal-Mart so eat up. You'll have to agree with me on every thread for the next week, FYI.

Also, on my way back from grabbing my popcorn I found a dead horse. I'm bringing him to this thread as an offering so we can get a head start since he's been beaten severely already.

I am still scratching my head as to just what it was you said that was so rude in another thread. Next time preface and end it with a bunch of Maybe then you won't be seen as rude. Or maybe you will be seen as rude and sarcastic who knows.

I wouldn't have minded either way, but I did go back and edit my comment to be clear I was sincere and not sarcastic

But, about the and -- I remember once I posted the at the end of a comment that I had made, and the WAHM who was being talked about PMed me to ask me if I was being rude/sarcastic. I totally was not, and I was surprised that she messaged me about it! But apparently she had felt personally attacked
Isn't that sad??

So what if I did call you a ding? Maybe it was the correct response to what you posted! Calm down!

I get frustrated with the emoticons sometimes b/c I'll have something specific in mind, and then I go to find it and it doesn't exist here
