@AnneReuss Definitely, being respectful doesn't necessarily mean changing who we are (I Yam, What I Yam, right?) and like you say, using guts & common sense! Love that!

@AnneReuss @RebeccaTodd Thanks, Anne - It's been interesting seeing all the various comments and there really is no right or wrong on this. I love that this "debate" has reminded us that we don't all process the same way and respecting those differences will make us better communicators!
@belllindsay @DallasK Ditto, that! LOLOLOLOLOL

Well it's certainly a Happy Friday NOW!! Congrats @JRHalloran on your #FF...it's the best day of the year and bonus for us today, too! LOL
Didn't realize you were a "local" - I think we need to have a East Coast/Mid-Atlantic IRL meetup of the Spin Sucks crazies one of these days! :)

@Howie Goldfarb @LivefyreMeg Yes, yes, yes! And I know exactly what you mean, Howie...I really think so much conflict is the result of miscommunication and misunderstanding that goes unresolved! :)

@JoeCardillo @jasonkonopinski Silly boys...this is not a fight! But, Joe you can sing Thin Lizzy anytime you like! :)
@annelizhannan Great to hear from you! My intent is similar...although most people probably would know we're joking if we called them a "dirty dog" - then again, you never know! LOL PS - the therapist would charge you a lot more, though!

@RobBiesenbach I know I "overuse" the exclamation point!! see there I go again!
@JRHalloran @RebeccaTodd I agree...with you and Rebecca. For me, seeing someone's facial expressions and body language is important in understanding them. The emoticon is a way to try to garner a little bit of that visual assistance, but I get that it might not work for everyone and not in every situation.
@RebeccaTodd And yet I think you have an artistic nature and certainly very cool fashion sense...is it the 2-D v. 3-D that loses meaning for you?

@RebeccaTodd OMG...you mean I did all that cleaning for nothing?! LOL Seriously, I really did misread & subsequently misquote...for that I apologize! It is very interesting that even when words are right there in front of us, we don't all perceive them the same! I guess that goes to this whole issue about the different styles of learning and communication, too. Some of us respond best to visual, some audio, etc. I think the important point in both of our posts is that we are all different and acknowledging & respecting those differences makes our communications better!
PS - my VARK scores were: (although now I'm questioning the Read/Write!)
@bobledrew What an intriguing backstory! As a fellow snarkster (is that a word?) I often fear that my teasing will result in hurting feelings...but dang, it's hard to pass up those good laughs! ;) So, I'm with Lindsay - don't change your sense of humour (notice how I added in the "u" for you Canadians)!
BTW...I'm officially challenging you to a dishwashing packing competition! The only thing that may bother me more than an inefficiently packed one is one that never seems to get packed at all, even if I do wind up re-packing it! ARRGGH!

@belllindsay Haha...I'm pretty sure I said if we all hadn't heard from you by 5a, we should send out the paramedics...not that you were a complainer! BTW...I have a blankie, too! There I said it! Feel sooo much better now!
@Howie Goldfarb @jasonkonopinski Oh for Pete's sake Howie...we're supposed to be nice here today and I can't share my snarky comment... ;)

@jasonkonopinski Ditto that...and besides, you really don't know a person until you spend 18 hours in a car with them, right JSki?! LOL
This is a cool post, @pgiven! I love shooting all kinds of photos, asked for a "real" camera for Christmas (are you listening, Santa?) and it's on my bucket list to really learn how to do it "properly" someday! Thank you for encouraging us to get out there and just do it! Hope to meet you at CoWork one of these days when I stop down to visit @jasonkonopinski :)

LOL,@belllindsay and NO...you are not a cranky-pants (how did I get singled out on that one?)! Wow...love this post and you! Amazing how easy some people find it to ASSume about others based on such little info...you're right on - there's so much more behind the pic! Thanks for sharing your backstory, which has an eerie (freaky eerie) resemblance to mine! And remember, don't sweat those nasty folks...you've got an army of crazies backing you up! :)
