If you find that you are mostly mystified by men you double that with how mystified men are about women!!

You heard of ex sex? Happens more than you may think, My bet is that at least one of those guys is doing it. It may be that only they thought the sex was great ..by the same token.

Divided by our common desires and very different ways of talking, perceiving, bonding, living....

I just had a marketing call asking to speak with the Managing Director and if he was available.
Me: The Managing Director is a woman and she is me. How can I help you.

Ya gotta' face it Castle. There are those still living in the dark ages.
The only Real supervisor we've had where I work was a woman, and I've been there 22+ years now.
Cryin' shame she got tired of the sh!t (target on her back, back biting, power/authority struggle) that goes on there and left. And of course, there's the crap that goes on out in production. She ran a tight ship with our department, but couldn't get other dept heads to do squat with their people and all the fvckin' off.

No need for the snark for an honest error by a potential customer.

The classy reply: Speaking. How can I help you?

^^^

I get it; when I get the mailers for house remodeling etc. addressed to a guy who never lived here, never paid a dime towards here and who tried to block MY buying the place for me and my kids... and yet he is getting twice as much solicitation mail as me in spite of the fact he doesn't even live in the country... and never lived a day nor paid a dime towards this house.

I will confess if anyone wants my business, they are NOT getting it by sending their solicitation to my ex in a house he had nothing whatsoever to do with...

it kind of drives me crazy... i probably feel snarky too :)

The caller was not a potential customer.
It was a call centre trying to get me to change telco providers.

It does drive me crazy sometimes.
The boss... MUST... be a man.

Castle messaged me.

She was invited by a tribal chief of the aboriginal Darkinjung tribe to observe the bora (Burbung) initiation ceremony.

Something to do with young men.

She's off the grid for a week or so in the Outback.

Incommunicado.

Does that mean she's going to be dancing to tribunal music, wearing nothing but a skirt made of leafs?

now i'll have to rant about the disappearing members here--I sent an email to a local lass, waaay out of my league. she responded anyway. And poof, she's already deleted. Since English was her second language, it was likely a scam deleted for my safety. Still, tho, selling a business with a fluffed-up customer list, and sticking the buyer with the job of culling thru the mess? I guess its the third oldest business trick in the world.

according to a post here, the person doing it never finds happiness. they have to keep bragging about their power, stewing in a bitter brew of past hurts, etc. while those deleted get free of the pull of these forums to seek fresh air and enjoy life. Guess who really wins in the end?

I guarantee you the buyer cares not a whit. The buyer has its own mess to deal with - thousands, maybe tens or hundreds of thousands of fake profiles constructed to take advantage of the 3 day "free trial" period and then, of course, to take advantage of gullible paying customers. Every age group is littered with their left-for-dead carcasses. I saw it in my own age group every day. Impossibly handsome men, looking for women 10 years their senior, usually widowers, always a single pic, no preferences, no specific references. The 3 days run out, then the profile goes "active within 1 week", invariably destined to be "active over 3 weeks ago". Does it make any sense that in the "over 50" group, men would outnumber women by 1.3 : 1? Didn't to me and it didn't take long to ferret out the reason.

The people who bought POF know how the dating site business works. Markus used to post in the forums about how Match created fake profiles in its site.

They would have looked at revenues and made their offer based on that.

Funeral homes.

We're not going to get out of here alive.

Rant of the day:

Lack of availability of McRibs in Southern California.
What's up with THAT?

Rant over.

Carry on.

^^^^^Speakng of McDonld's Mr. Fullmoonguy...this is what my niece texted me and my rant.



"I'll have a wine, please"

"Ma'am, this is McDonald's."

"Ok....I will have a McWine, please". :D


***Edit...Sorry that happened Mr. Gto. Most likely was to your benefit but I am confident that you will find another woman you find attractive. You never know...it might even be a woman's pic you have seen already and suddenly she becomes "Hot" in you eyes. ;)



VVVVV A big smile to that addition Mr. Halftime!

Not buying it, calling shenanigans. Looks like a deletion to me, not a 'hiding'.

Just when I thought it was safe to come out and play since the sheriff returned :)

But, but, but..... she messaged me to see if I could hook her up with some hunky sailors from the Yacht Club during the Sydney to Hobart race festivities at end of December.... all I could find for her was the crusty old Commodores...

I've been out in the yard readying the roses for them to present to her - and I'm the one stuck with the pr!cks... errr I mean thorns in my middle finger.....

^^^^^I didn't agree with his posts, Ms. Chameleonf....but he definitely served a good purpose for me.
Sometimes....it is the extremes we learn the most from.


Ms. Spot no longer appears to be with us, either.

With a few exceptions, it almost seems like the people who are on here daily or a few times daily, are the ones getting nuked. The people who are most invested and share more end up on the outside looking in.
It seems punitive, and very wierd.
