Dear All Ya’ll People I Have Offended,
I just want to let you know that I was smiling when I wrote whatever it was that hacked you off. I’ve found that humor is useful to grease the wheels of life, and I make it a point to use it whenever possible. I’m sorry it’s not always possible to project a light-hearted attitude through words alone, but I can assure you that at least 50% of the time you think I am rude and angry, my eyes are twinkling, and I am trying to do a job as painlessly for both of us as I can.
No, let me try again
Umm, well. I’m real conflicted here, see. Cause while that above is true, I’m just not sure what to think about people who think I am serious. I guess my warped sense of humor is….warped.
Nope, that wasn’t it either.
Ok, I think what I am trying to say is that when it comes to people, you get what you expect, especially in the internet world. If you expect people to be rude/angry, then whatever they say will be perceived that way by you. If you expect them to be laughing, that’s how you will read what they write. A very wise friend of mine said not to long ago that if you consistently have a problem with someone, you might want to look at that a little closer because the problem most likely lies within you, not them. I’m going to keep being myself, calling the shots like I see them, living my life. In the end, whether I am Cantankerous Cass or Convivial Cass is totally up to you.
Now then. A quick glance at my Technomarine watch tells me it’s time to move on. I’ve let this issue consume a couple of hours of my life, and that was 115 minutes too many.
