> suspects you had glass of wine under your belt when you wrote that! :-)
Suspects we all needed one when we read it :-)
> i love this smiley face tool!! :-)
Isn't it cool! And "board certified" to be effective and safe :-)
> the instant "get out of PBC" card! :-)
So far :-)
> "I'm sorry if I hurt anyone's feelings. I see how someone could've felt put down if they thought I meant that literally." is an example might use in the future of a poor apology. You know that you hurt people's feelings and that they DID feel put down. The way you wrote that took no responsiblity for what you did.
Its the gift that keeps on giving :-)
>I would encourage you to re-write it as follows"
> "I'm sorry that I hurt people's feelings. I see that some people here felt put down by what I wrote. My comment was poorly written, as the feelings evoked were honestly not my intention......what I meant was....Again, I am very sorry my comments caused upset to members of this community. I hope there is a better understanding now of my intent."
Okay if I don't hold my breath? Its difficult with all this smiling. :-)
