You know, I never realised how silly we can all be. I mean that some things we don't treat seriously enough other people view as something deserving the outmost consideration and care.hravan
and I always have this open source software vs Microsoft discussions. I enjoy teasing the guy about Microsoft and how I support it (I do support the company, their mistakes are my bread and butter) and he argues the case for open source. We both make some valid points and someone gets bored with the discussion and it stops. Well, I thought the discussions were always semi-serious, my sarcasm and well, let's not beat around the bush, sometimes my utter brutal honesty mixed in with a bit of arrogance were not typed with 100% seriousness behind it.
Obviously, I was not taking this seriously enough, as I got a snippy reply and when I was typing up a response, where I added that I am sorry that he took my words in offence I get a notification that I am removed from his Friends list. After a small WTF moment, I grabbed an apple, typed a quick message to the guy via MSN and got back to work. Still, makes you wonder about people one think one knows at least a little bit. A little sad too, cause hravan
was one of my first online friends on Live Journal that I did not know in real life.
O well, takes all kinds of sillyness I suppose.
