I'd like to thank everyone for their condolences and well wishes. This hardest part is explaining this to the kids. They loved Gramma and this is their first experience with death. Thank you all for your concern and support.
But there's another situation that needs to be dealt with.
Last Thursday when I left for ATL, I was looking forward to hanging out and having a good time. I still had a good time and plan to go back in the fall, but there's an undercurrent that is still going on, and I'm ready to address it.
It was my intent to let this ride, but the shit just won't die. Yes, I was stood up last Friday morning. No it didn't feel good.
Frankly, I didn't think the situation was that traumatic. I didn't hold anyone hostage and saying no is always an option. No is okay. I'm not so pissed that you didn't show up, but more pissed that you weren't honest with me about your intentions. If you had other plans/desires/feelings, why not just say that? Makes more sense and is quite simple.
Yes, my ticket was charged on your card. And yes, you recieved your money back. In full. You offered, I accepted. I know better next time. When someone extends and act of kindness or curtesy, truly kind people do it from the heart, not to keep score.
Now it's time to stop this bullshit back and forth between the blogs and bloggers. I didn't call you out. I didn't put you out there. Others felt your actions were sub par and decided to address it. Again, I chose to let it ride.
Yes, a phone call would have sufficed, however, you chose not to. Your reasoning for not calling is weak. It doesn't take that much effort to pick up a phone. I'm not mad, since I know you have a track record of such behavior. I do find the way you handled the situation most distasteful.
Now you've heard from my mouth how I feel about this situation, and I'mma let it ride.
