I haven't been really outside of this thread, so I don't really know what is going on....don't really have time. BUT, many months ago, as I had mentioned before, someone commented on a ligitamate (sp) question I had...made a comment that was just rude. Wasn't helpful in the least, just reallly inappropriate. Like I say to the children....is that really helping the issue? Or the person problem? Telling me to shove a bottle up my arse isn't helping me find a good quiet horse...THAT is what bothers me. Would that person have said it to my FACE? Hard to say....but bottom line, that wasn't helpful and needn't be said. Is that where people are going? Just saying things to be nasty and hurtful?
I don't know, like I said, I rarely leave this thread. But if you don't have something helpful or useful to say and want to be SNARKY.....bug off! Totally my own opinion. But our world is too full of snarkiness....look at TV. GAWH! It almost seems that mean and rudeness is OK.....really? Where's the humanity? And some of these people asking questions (i'm assuming from my brief periods out) are young kids needing to learn. Maybe they don't have parents who help teach them appropriate horsemanship....again....speculating here.
I belong to a teacher's forum, and it's not nasty at all! (except the politics board) but I don't go there!
AND....teachers can be nasty.....but it appears, by the goings on... horse people (some) can be WORSE! Hahaha
My two cents......for what it is worth.........OFF to the barn!
