Public Apology

  1. I want to make a public apology for a outburst that I made in a recent current events thread. I especially want to apologize to 3rdshiftguy, kmchugh, donmurray and anyone else I may have hurt with my attack. You guys (and gals) are great..... I love this nursing forum. My outburst was uncalled for and callous...... I got what I deserved. I would love to work with a lot of you.... I'm sure you are great nurses by what I read on these threads. Again, I apologize and ask you to forgive me..... Thanks, Jason(ie jaaaman)

    Jaaaman - very nice of you.

    I know the threads get heated and it's hard to separate opinions from people. Thanks for sharing this.

    Personally I steer clear of current events...too nasty in there for me. Life's too short and all that jazz.

    I agree it is big of you to publicly apologize but I doubt you were alone in the fray...LOL!

    Since you mentioned me I will respond. I'm not sure why you are apologizing to me when you have the Word of God that my behavior is an abomination, you are steadfast in that belief, there were no personal attacks, nothing for you to apologize for. While it's a case I've heard a millions times before, we both feel 100% sure that our personal view is correct. We aren't going to change each other's mind. Can we exist in the same planet and country, or even the same bulletin board. I would like to think so. I ask nothing of Christians than to leave the Bible out of the Constitution.

    Anyway, sorry to babble on. Thank you for the apology, but nothing to apologize for. We must agree to disagree and agree never to discuss it. Thanks.

    That was very nice of you. Tweety, I really admire your "tough skin", so to speak.

    Comes partly from being a bullied kid. Comes partly from therapy. Comes partly from being a "sexual minority" in a hostile world, which is becoming increasingly better, especially the last 20 years I've been "out". Comes partly from being a nurse. LOL

    Current events gets too heated for me too sometimes. I type so fast and frantically that my big fat foot enters my big, open mouth - often....

    My comments were made out of anger. They were cruel and mean spirited. This is a complicated issue and I have made far to many generalizations. I wanted to apologize to you or anyone else I might have hurt with my comments. You didn't deserve that. I have come to know you very well on this board (I don't post that often, but I have been coming to this message board for a long time) and your a very likeable individual. I think you would be a great nurse to work with. I hope that I haven't totally ruined any possibility I might have had to converse with you in the future. Thanks.

    Shows maturity, Jason.

    Good going!

    Ooops. Forgot to mention how highly many of us regard "Mr. Tweety."

    But you know it's not 'cause he's so smart or anything. He's not! He's just so darn old he's seen just about everything there is. And so he's got all the freakin' right answers.

    Seriously Tweets, we're privileged to have you around. And thanks for all your input here.

    WE all love tweety around here! I think it's very nice of you to apologize. And yes, current events is quite heated most days. Sometimes I have to let a subject that i want to reply to simmer a few days to sort out my thoughts and try not to be offensive to others. SO far I think it's working, but I can't be 100% certain!!!
