    My wife writes our Christmas cards. I'm not even sure how many she sends, but as people pass away and others use text/internet greetings, we receive fewer cards each year.

    I have had to put up with enough prejudice in the past just for being different, and at a time like this, I can easily do without it.

    That's all very well, but sometimes it's difficult to know whether someone is being ironic, sarcastic, or whatever - and that has got nothing at all to do with having any sort of condition whatsoever- a lot of people respond in that same way. I just think that it is not very nice for someone to say that. I have to admit that no DYR remember has ever sacred me during my time on here, and I am someone who has rather poor social skills.

    I would appreciate an apology from Tex for saying that - I will easily forgive him and move on if he apologies.

    I don't think there's a need for him to apologise in this instance.. he's already explained that he meant no malice towards you and he was 'joshing' ( joking / jesting ) .

    I also misunderstand many posts as I maybe did when I quoted him ..

    No harm done bud .

    Just forget it ..

    Relax Bud, just a turn of phrase, your knowing all the final posting dates for christmas amused me. My sense of humour can be misunderstood sometimes and often goes over the head of people. Not trying to be a smart ***, i've already said in previous posts that i like reading your posts and that i would miss you if you stopped posting. I am a little disapointed however that you misjudge me as the kind of person that might want to cause upset, strange also that Zincubus has similar problems to yourself but read my comment with a different perspective.So no apology here fraid as that would be an admission of guilt and i wont apologise just to apease you.If you still feel you have been done a misjustice it might be simpler to give each other a wide berth as i would hate to cause you any further upset unwittingly.

    Default Christmas When You Were Growing Up

    I guess I did kinda misunderstand you initially but only because I didn't know if you knew about George's Aspergers ..

    In hindsight it was a very funny / witty comment .. .. similar to to ones I write myself ... but I always add a smiley ..

    It was all something over nothing fellas ... let's all forget it and move forwards !!

    I just copied the dates from the Royal Mail website, so I don't know why you had mentioned that in response - to tell you the truth, I thought that what I posted was useful rather amusing.

    I am disappointed that you didn't choose your words more wisely - I don't like the fact that someone who I hardly know says something like that about myself, now that is scary to someone like myself. You have to remember that members come in all shapes and sizes and I know that I don't know anyone personally enough to say things that could upset them - I don't know how sensitive you are for example, mostly because I don't pry into the private lives of people, but I wouldn't go up to a person walking down the street and say that they are scaring me - life doesn't work like that.

    I shall regard your response as an apology as long as you remember to think about other people before you say something about them - it has got nothing to do with being guilty, it is just about being courteous. Just remember that although we are all different, some of us are a bit more different than others. Sometimes apologising is not about being guilty, but to make amends on something that has happened.

    Usually any points I make on this forum, ironic or not, I get straight to the point and so most of the time I don't need to put a Smiley on, but sometimes I do. The difference between someone laughing with someone else and someone laughing at them can make a huge bit of difference, as to whether they are on the same side or whatever.

    I do have the condition (I was diagnosed at the age of 18), and sometimes it's a good thing that people understand while at other times it can be a bad thing. I see it in a similar way to racism or sexism - no one deserves to be discriminated, harassed or distressed just because there happens to be something different about them. I just think that everyone should be treated equally at the end of the day.

    I am prepared to forget it completely.
