You know, when you offend someone, the best route is to just apologize and leave it at that. Making up excuses as to why one oughtn't to have been offended in the first place just makes you look like an ignorant, insensitive ass, especially after you've just done the right thing and apologized. Next time, stop there.

I know it was meant as a joke, but I (and likely only I) didn't find it funny, and found it rather insensitive at that. You should have stopped at "I'm sorry."

Copping an attitude about it doesn't help, either.

And yes, I know you're very much the "no PC for me" and "the more insulting the better so I can knock you PC lovers on your butt HA HA HA" kinda guy, but when you do actually offend someone, regardless of whether you think it's legitimate or not, sometimes you just gotta take the lumps, even from your friends.

Food for thought.

The offended has a right to vent, not the offender, IMHO.

I'm underwhelmed by your sensitivity to others' feelings.

And if the offender is going to try to justify his actions, don't be surprised if the defender explains himself.

Oh, bullshit. It was a tacky thing to do from the start. If you'd have let me say what I had to say and left it at "I'm sorry" that would have been the end of it. The fact that you're still trying to prove I'm at fault somehow is making you look more ridiculous. When you do something callous and insensitive and someone tells you you hurt them, accept that you'll get berated for it. Period.

In this case, I'd definitely have to say "crossed words". Should I be contrite about something?

JOhn.

Nope. Just venting in my journal, nothing to do with you.

That's good to know. When you vent without naming names, many of us care enough about you to wonder if we did harm. Good to hear it wasn't me nor Daniel.

JOhn.

I dunno...""the more insulting the better so I can knock you PC lovers on your butt HA HA HA" kinda guy" description sure sounds like me. I was worried for almost a millisecond that I did something wrong. I think I'm gonna go kick a kitten now. *chuckle*...poor taste...I KNOW. Sorry Ate. Had to do it. Love you...sometimes. Cheers!

Hate you, bitch.

(And you're the only one so far that's heard the whole story. Then again, you'd probably find great amusement in what was sent, you sick bastard.)

Sorry, beheaded kitties doesn't amuse me too greatly.

Also, I'm sure you know that every time you masturbate, a kitten dies. I'm certain little Mittens has fallen prey to your auto-erotic activities on way more than 1 occasion, so save your sanctimonious rhetoric, and waste little Fluffy like it aint no thang!! =P
