    If I disagree with what you say, I may tell you so, but I will do so respectfully and won't name-call and get personal. I don't use personal attacks as a way of communicating. And if you choose to personally attack me, the only response you will get is me walking away. I have...

    Isn't There, Like, Something Better and More Worthwhile to Do?

    . . . because it is a waste of my time and a waste of the other person's time.  If someone is going to go out and be a fool, @$$, beeotch, buffoon, or nincompoop, I am sure they'll do just fine on their own, without my having to address the fact.  Besides, I respect...

    True

    Hell. If you don't like my straightwardness. Don't bother to read my stories.  I don't like personal attack on me either. If you personally attack me. I will delete your comments and I will block you. So you can't attack me. Period. Thanks.

    Not My Style

    If you offend me I will send you a message in private to tell you so.  Many times misunderstandings happen when people air their dirty laundry in public stories, so I choose to handle mine in private where I can talk rationally, calmly, and privately with the person, and...
