Longest Disaster Story Ever. Please Help. - Page 7

post #91 of 99
Lutie makes good points, but I still think that if the choice is saying nothing because you are the sort of person who quakes at personal confrontation and writing a letter (not a raging letter, but certainly a stern one), then go with the letter. The poster did not cause the offence, and I think she should deal with it in the way that is most comfortable for her.

I use masonite for a bottom board too. Good and strong!

I had no idea that this thread was still going! LOL.

Thanks for the advice, Lutie. And everyone else. However, I think a letter is the best way to go. I would be nervous, and sputter my way through an in person confrontation. I also have a tendency to get very upset when I confront someone, and would look like an over emtional idiot. Don't need that-she already thinks I am an idiot who can't make cakes. icon_wink.gif

Anyway...I did take Ruth up on her offer to proof read the letter, and she did a great job!

Wait wait --this is a killer never fail line, just four teeny little one sylable words that can be filed away for next time hopefully we all never need to use them but just in case...

"What's your boss' name?"

You likey??

Instantaneous attitude adjustment.

(I mean unless you're talking to the owner-drat that anyway.)

Although, this woman's attutide adjustment would have been into uber-you know what mode.

And if you say it rather cheerfully with clarity like you might say after a rain, "Oh the sun's come out", but only use that level tone and only say the four tiny words, "What's your boss' name"

The only difference between that and a real stun gun blast is that the drop to the ground is figurative. Their face falls as rapidly as they suck alll the air out of the room simultaneously commencing to twitch while all the circuits reset with a snap. Then the look that comes over their face is just exactly as if the sun had indeed just come out.

Summernoelle,
Do you have an update? Was there a response to your letter?
