I remember how popular my opinions are during the season and respectfully decline.
I don't want Cuth to have something he can print out for a hitman.

Then this is what I will imagine you look like.
Small, small town... Anonymity allows me to be honest, without fear of repercussions.
What would you rather have, me wide open (honest) or the shallow superficial relationship you have with co-workers (lies).
Depends on setting, but sometimes shallow/superficial is great.
The poster formerly known as 31-7. Understood by few, known by many, loved by all.
^^^^^Agreed. Some middle ground is typically appropriate.
I don't know... from my experience, most people don't want a mixture... most people prefer to wade in the shallow end of the pool at all times... and are easily offended when someone questions anything they spout.
The dog and pony show isn't for me. I don't need you to like me. You will either like me, because you respect that I will be honest with you, even when it's going to hurt... or you will hate me, because you prefer the shallow end, and your ego filters out stuff you don't want to hear. And from my experience, the people who think they are the "most balanced" in this regard, tend to be the biggest liars (politicians, actors).
Now within 24-hours of a football game, I allow the irrational to consume me, and it's on....
from one brutally honest person to another, it's not actually about the honesty part, it's the brutal part that's an issue.
My blunt responses have limited my personal relationships and my professional advancement. For a long time I hid behind "I don't need you", "I'm just being honest", and "I'm only speaking logically, I'm not trying to upset you". I'd be perfectly fine with everyone speaking to me in the way that I naturally speak to them. The problem is, it's selfish for me to think that everyone else should be okay with the delivery that I'm okay with.
It's much harder to craft a message in a way that puts the other person's desires ahead of yours.
All of these things are true.
- you tell the truth.
- some people like you and don't mind your delivery.
- some people don't like you.
- you don't care enough about those people to understand what delivery they would prefer.
It's fine to live like that. I did it for almost 30 years. I could have been more successful, but I'm not exactly starving either. I have plenty of friends that find my unfiltered delivery amusing. But, you should be aware that it's not your content, it's your delivery. The way you described it makes you sound like you think you're better than everyone else. If I met you in real life and you gave the above speech, I'd think you were a bit condescending and not nearly introspective enough.
Or maybe I'm completely wrong, just trying to help you avoid what I've been getting wrong for 33 years.
I agree wholeheartedly... and if you worked with me you would find I am pretty good with using the right delivery in the right situations. Believe it or not, most people don't realize I'm a complete asshole.
It's just completely unnatural and undesirable for me to do that on here, because this is my leisure time.. I don't find catering my delivery fun... I find it draining and tedious, because it's compromising on efficiency.
I appreciate you taking the time to type that, it's definitley something I can identify with and there is always room for improvement
So what you're saying is.....
you come on here to act like an unfiltered asshole.
Your words, not mine.
So why do some people who act in a similar fashion cry bloody murder when I call them out as such?
I thought we only allowed FILTERED assholes on here!
please don't stop doing this. I laugh every time.
Trying out my new pistol.
Eye protection ...Check!
Good stance, nice form...think your good to go.
Now go get your CCL if you don't already have it.
Turn 21 next month and already have all my paper work done, just waiting to turn it in.
Nice animal you wrestled to the ground. Did you whack him with your iron stick? What caliber is that shootin' arn' anyway?
Very nice pic of yer lady. She's a fetching lass. Is she mean? Would you cornsider a trade? Jes kiddin'.
Here is me and my wife prior to the WFU game last time around in Winston - terrible game
FSU -->----->> The Unconquered Uprising
I was there also. Horrible game
3-2-1 TOUCHDOWN FSU
It's a 7MM Rem. Mag. It's old trusty. Yes, she is mean... But I'm sure some of that's my fault. She gets tired of my hunting, fishing, beer drinking, and Black ops. You'd bring her back to me.
Me and my eldest daughter
How 'bout a pic of me and my better half.
Here's to kick'n outside your coverage zone.
Hey ZZZZZZZZZZZZ, Yer daughter has a better smile.......... dresses nicer too!
