Resolution of bitchery

November 24, 2009 at 15:30 8 comments

I am pleased – very pleased – to report that the episode of bitchery I described in my last post has been resolved. I’d sent a killingly courteous email reply to what I’d read and left it to the recipients to figure it out as they chose.

I am actually rather ashamed to say that it caused a bit more upset than I’d thought. Frankly, I’d assumed, while on my offended high horse, that the recipients would be too self-centred and thick-skinned to have a clue. I was wrong about that and things cleared up after a short talk all round.

Yes, this is a picture of an olive branch

Welcome to my blog!

My blog-name is Katie but I will not respond if you call me that in real life because it's not my real name. Yes, I do practise virtual-world paranoia. No, I do not enjoy stalkers. But I do enjoy writing and having folks reading said writing, so welcome to my world. It's nice to meet you.

Don’t say I didn’t say this…

Disclaimers: 1) I cannot help but bitch about work sometimes, but everything here comes under the realm of personal remarks, and nothing here is said in my professional capacity. Nor does anything here reflect the opinion of the institutions that employ me. This is just me shooting off. 2) Most identities have been anonymized, particularly those of folks I know on a personal basis. Same goes for my workplaces. However, commercial and public places and figures remain named. Otherwise some things just wouldn't make sense. 3) Links and sources have been provided where appropriate and possible. They are not meant to challenge anyone's ownership. If this causes any discomfort or offence, please let me know.
