Shall I stay, or shall I go???


My sense of humour has gotten me in hot water twice, so far, on Facebook. Each time it was with people I don't know and who do not know me. I have apologized both times in order to keep the peace and perserve harmony and tried to explain to the unknown person that I was just joking. The actual person I was addressing the remark to, should know me well enough to know that I was just joking. I even put "joke, joke" at the end of the remark so there would be no misunderstanding.

I am upset that my joke has been interpreted by an unknown person to me , in the wrong way.

I like Facebook very much but I do not like the fact that strangers to me (friends to others) are judging me wrongly (in this case only).

Perhaps I am overreacting, but I am quite upset right now.

I am thinking of getting off Facebook and yet, I love being able to keep in touch with long distance friends and family.

I don't like to ruffle feathers, so to speak, but mine were ruffled today!!!

Those opinions are like, um... noses? Everybody has one. Tell them to read something else and post whatever you wish.

Hi Alan,

Thanks for your encouragement. I'm glad you still read my blog. How are you doing? The winter here has been very, very long with lots of snow and ice.

I am beginning to long for Spring and summer so I can walk by the water again and get about easier.

Thanks again for your encouragement.
