Want to know something mindblowingly weird? I'm 90% certain I'll be moving to to a job in KC next February.
How @$%#ing weird is that?
PS: How ya been?
90% certain, huh? And yes, very @$%#ing weird. And exciting, if you're a girl who happens to actually be in KC. Plan on asking me to coffee? Bringing Mrs. Doc with you?
And I've been fantastic. Fan-@$%#ing-tastic!
One month later...
Whatever happened to you heading towards KC?
May 2007. But as far as you're concerned, nothing, after your foul-mouthed, ill-judged reply awhile back.
I'm sorry?? I thought perhaps I'd let a word or two slip, but when I went back and re-read my last several emails to you, there was nothing in them that I thought you might find offensive.
You sure it was me?
Nevermind, I found it. If seeing the word @$%# disturbs you, then I'm certainly sorry to have offended. It wasn't my intent.
I think you're being over-sensitive, and it probably would have been more effective to say, "Yanno, that really bothers me. Please don't do it," but whatever works for you, man.
Funny thing is, that word isn't even a part of my regular vocabulary. I was having a great day, and was elated about some life goings-on. It came out a bit over-exhuberant, I'll admit, but I'm not certain it's something I'd break contact over, were it me.
Enjoy the day!
I swear all the men I know are ragging right now. What the hell? Can't a girl get a break for just a week or two? Please? You guys are killin me....
I don't know whether I'm confused, offended, or hurt.
Okay, nix on the hurt. I'm confused and offended. Why is it okay for a man to use that type of language in casual communication, but not a woman? It isn't something I say every day, and it's certainly not something I let slip around folks I'm not comfortable with.
I don't get it. I just don't get it...
