Sigh...

I did it again. I was a total and complete ass. I feel so bad. I guess I have to be super nice to the point of being fake to make people happy or lurk for years to get to know every single persons personal lives who post on the knot (so as not to step on anyones toes). I really do feel bad for being such a jerk.

I am taking a break from all the madness of finals so I do not lose my mind. I see this post about 'part 1 trip home' and read it. I think why do people bitch so much about planes? It is not like I haven't been in similar situations. It also isn't like other people haven't been through the same kind of thing either. Air travel is a hot topic for me for some reason. So this is the train wreck/ massive hole I dug for myself. Flame away at me ladies. I deserve it.

Re: Sigh...

  • It was a bad trip, indeed.  My advice to you dear, careful of the regs.  You know by post counts how long someone has been here, etc.  It's best just not to post unless you have something supportive or constructive to say, ya know?  I don't think she was looking for advice, just some support...
  • Eh Mary, I wouldn't let it get to you.  You just were trying to offer another outlook and no one wanted to take it.  They've got nothing else to do but try and make drama.  I find it rather sad.

  • Taking another break from studying.

    Kristy- After I posted this I noticed that by then she had put up the 2nd post about the 2nd part of the trip. It was about luggage. What happened to her suitcase was just awful. What happened to her luggage would make anyone cry/upset. That was when I realised all she wanted was sympathy and wasn't just another person bitching.  Also I do not automatically look to see how many posts a person has done/ see if they are a reg or not. There are certain people who I do automatically recognise as regs but I just didn't recognise her and just posted what was what in my eyes at the time.

    Kristen- Thank you for the support. I wasn't looking for any support but it is always nice to get. Thank you. I really really appreciate it. I didn't intend to be harsh to someone that wanted support but it didn't look like needing support to me just bitching on the 1st post. It was a different outlook that I gave but not appropriate for the knot. I am trying to not let it get to me. It really bothers me when I hurt people when hurting someone was not my goal.

    Thank you you two.

  • I have a few airline stories too!!!!

    Best one is

    Back when we were still dating, the FI and I were stuck in SFO for 19 hours because of a storm in Jan of 2008; went through security three times, and had to go to three different counters to get them to understand the concept of "we are travling together".

    After that, I offically hated United and SFO.....and guess what?  On our trip to MA this August.....we're flying United.....through SFO......SONOFA!!!!!

  • Geez Blu! Do you enjoy craziness and drama? :p Good luck with this upcoming trip. That previous one is awful! Lets pray that this trip goes smoothly! We can't have anymore of that nonsense that they gave you last time.

  • Well... as I see it.. you cannot "hear" emotions thru text.   You can read it to the best of your ability, but the writer quite possibly could mean it another way entirely.  Peoples perceptions and all that.

    Don't be to hard on yourself.. .. really.

    My post count will forever be low.. and I really don't GAS. When in doubt I just don't post it... now if I see a new post and someone is getting torn to shreds by some obvious B**** then I try to jump in and chill the situation out.  But when someone posts a new thread your opening yourself up to EVERYONE's opinions.

    I agree with Autumn, you were giving a different opinion and some didn't like it.

  • And not to sound to bitchy.. but when replying to a post:

    I don't temper my responses by first looking to see if someone is a "reg".
    Right is right and wrong is wrong..regardless of perceived elite status by post count.  I answer the same way for everyone, with a grain of salt and kindness.

    If I get flamed because of an opinion, so what.  They cant turn off my internet or c ban me from TK for my opinion.  Gathering information for my wedding is why I came here, if I make a friend along the way great.. if not, so be it.

    Unfortunately TK is no different then all the other message boards out there....same drama different theme.

  • Lol! Sometimes I wish you could hear emotions through text! Just like sometimes I wish I could smell/ taste the food on tv shows and commercials.  :)

    Thanks for the support Saorisenyl. What you said is very true. No matter what happens in life there is always going to be drama (unfortunately).

    I really didn't post to get support but I guess I really needed some (although I kinda deserved the harsh words). I feel worlds better now after all of the insight that you ladies have given. Thank you!

    LOL.  Actually, we're doing United through SFO because it was the cheapest tickets.  Originally, it was United through Denver, which was fine, but it got changed.

    It was also a freak storm, pretty much a Catagory 1 hurricane that hit San Fransico the day we were traveling, so we doubt that'll happen on this trip, but if it does, it would be through MA, not CA.....after all, we're flying into Boston during Hurricane Season, we'll be fine though, we have much more time this go around then we did back in '08.

  • The thing about a forum is you open yourself up for opinions, yes but you also open yourself to other things...like strong opinions from regs, whether right or wrong. 

    Also, whether it be right or wrong, they will latch on to certain things and never let them go...if you're ok with that, so be it.  Personally, I'd rather not be the girl who's remembered for her honeymoon registery, cash bar, kicking out a BM, etc etc etc on a forum I enjoy, ya know?

    Erollis-  I don't think you were an ass...but you did offer up your opinion which was taken the wrong way.  Can't be helped sometimes.  I wouldn't sweat it.
  • I wouldn't worry too much about it. Girls do it all the time on different boards. When i go on other boards they talk about how they made one posts and the other girls start b****ing at them.
  • I've posted things a time or two that get others all worked up about.  Don't sweat it.  You don't know them, they don't know you...no reason to feel offended or worry too much.  Just have good intentions for posting something, and you're fine.
