What a load.<quoted text>
You know, GK, a bag of chips, one bag, no dip, seems to be quite something to hold a grudge about for such a long time.
Particularly since no one, least of all you, had any interest in eating them when they were there. I cannot even remember a cordial word that was spoken by you, let alone anything like, could you pass the chips?
Beyond that, no chauffeur, no chaperone, no body guard.
My daughter who was with me WAS worried about leaving me when her friends wanted to go do something together, because she had observed raised voices and frankly was not disposed to leave me alone with these people I had met on the internet.
But my decision to leave when her friends got there (and trust me, neither of them fit the requirements of "body guard") had mostly to do with not having a very enjoyable time with people who sorta pretend they want to be friends, but not enough to listen if someone is concerned about their hurtful behaviors.
As I have said before, I was intrigued by the suggestion that if people met in person they might drop some of the ugly that comes across online. Turned out that in this case, it wasn't true. So--it was a nice day, I had better things to do.
Now--is there someplace that I should deliver bags of chips in order to make amends for the grievous social error of giving them to someone who wanted to eat them?
"Observed raised voices?"
Well duh! It was in a dive bar, after all. Did a single one of us even give a HINT we were violent? NO. For pete's sake, I'm old enough to have kids YOUR kids' age, complete with grey hair and the Palin specs. I drank a beer and played pool with you and your son. Wow...lots of concern to be had there, no? Keep digging...
Chips and dip--you can't even take a joke. You did bring chips, and they left with you. I witnessed it, you and your kids were eating them and not even sharing!(Not that I cared, I don't eat chips, but you know, there's more than a grain of truth to the posts I've made and you ARE more into denying and protecting your "image" than anything else here...)
