Over the years, I have gotten into trouble online regarding some of the things I’ve written. And I feel that I need to explain something. Perhaps I will one day figure out a better way
– a more detailed way – of writing this out, but for now, this will have to do.
Nine times out of ten, I write these blurbs in less than 15 minutes. Sometimes, depending on the subject or the sensitivity of the subject, I will spend a half an hour on them. But usually it’s less as I write before leaving work or before work begins. In other words, I don’t have much time. That being said, I’m pretty sure it aids in the possibility of pissing someone off. (For that, I am sorry. Sometimes.)
Please remember that there is a person behind this. One who isn’t always exhausting every offensive avenue but who doesn’t make it a practice to piss people off. So chances are if you are offended, I didn’t mean it.
Perhaps someday should I ever be able to just work on JUST this and writing and publishing random thoughts I will become more aware of things and spend more than fifteen minutes or a half and hour on a post making sure to avoid offensive diatribes.
To be completely honest, however, I am starting to think that’s just not possible. If one were to avoid the possibility of offending anyone, one would have to give up speaking altogether. And then there’s always farting. And everybody farts.
