Thank you for not saying Thank you.....

This seriously cracks me up...I giggle every time I read this email....I am NOT giving out who sent this....I am not making fun of this person...just makes me laugh....We use a group chat for help from the programmers at my job with client's issues. If we can't figure the answer out ourselves then we use the chat room to get some answers/help. We recently got this email.....

Reminder –

It’s really important that we keep conversations in group chat to a minimum, especially this week while we’re experiencing such volume. Chit chat makes it really difficult and time-consuming to follow the issues. More tickets are escalated to regulatory when we miss the rep’s initial question.

1. If you cannot resolve an issue within two iterations with the rep, ask that the rep chat you in a separate window. Three chats, you’re out.

2. Let it be known that we are hereby BANNING all smiley faces, thank you’s, you’re welcomes, and their variations (ty, yw, etc) and all unnecessary comments. We don’t have time for pleasantries right now.

Thanks very much. We’re having some fun now, right?

LOL yup that's right folks...they are Banning pleasantries! But Mom taught me to be polite! And now we are told NOT to? What to do...what to do!!!! Do what work says or do what Mama taught me!?! Oh Noes!!!!!

I'm not perfect but then again neither are you

I have debating whether or not to post this. The reason I am posting this is because I want to remember how I am feeling at this moment. I am not going into details and or give out names, because I am not trying to rat anyone out and or start drama with anyone.

First things first...I am not perfect...I am not going to admit that I try to be perfect either. I will admit that my family comes first. I love my friends dearly but my family will always come first. It became painfully obvious that certain family members do not want me apart of their lives. It makes me sad because I don't think I am such a horrible of a person as they are making me feel like I am. There are several (over the years) little things that have happened but something happened last weekend that wasn't anything huge but it opened my eyes up and made me realize I'm someone they don't want to be around. Normally I could care less, because the way I see it if someone chooses not to like me that's their choice and I move on but this time it's different, because the family is attached to my....Dad....I can't cut my Dad out of my life, I don't want to. I will admit that my relationship with my father over the years has been rocky. I am not saying it's all his or mine fault, I am just as guilty as he is. But I am trying to rebuild the relationship, I really's going to take it's baby steps. I want my kids to know their Grandpa...he loves them so much, Avery loves going to church with Papa. I think it's unfair that my dad is having to be in the middle of this. Richard doesn't know what to think he agrees with me that when we are around certain family members we feel don't feel welcome like they are having to put up with us being there. A part of me thinks I should try harder but a bigger part of me is afraid that if I do trying harder I am taking a chance of getting my feelings hurt again.

You can't choose your family but you can choose your friends. I love my family but I guess they chose not to be mine? It's out of my hands.
