This is going to be a messy one as it’s a document in support of another post: Heretic. Heresy. Hubris?
To recap: I am starting to hate Private Messenger on facebook as people will say stuff in private that they’d never have the balls to say face to face, or over the phone, or publicly via a posting to my fb wall.
The name has been hidden of the other correspondent, as – whether the relationship lives or dies – this is my pet peeve and I have no wish to out her for interference by others who aren’t involved in this conversation.
Feel free to add your 2 cents below if you wish to cast a vote for who is out of line (it could be me – maybe I’m being too sensitive).
The conversation begins privately, based on something I’ve posted in support of Planned Parenthood, and for which the other party won’t accept, “Stop. Let’s agree to disagree.” as a genuine compromise.
I feel attacked, like I’m dealing with a religious sniper.
Meanwhile, I tried to get her on the phone, as she kept on in this passive-aggressive vein, and I couldn’t get her to stop. It’s funny, but she claims to have “not recognized” my phone number, even though I believe I’m the only one she knows in this area code ~3,000 miles from where we grew up. (Sigh)
Didn’t get an answer and then the conversation moved on through time to discuss Boston and the Oscar-nominated movie, “Spotlight”:
Then, it starts to get to the point where I’m offended as she cites her traning as a biologist (even though she works as an Admin and has never used her college degree in the field for which she’s trained) for why she’s right and I’m wrong.
