Ok Dave, all that I will write in this post is NOT a criticism, nor anger, nor a way to correct your character (too late! :-) ). Is only what I feel, explained with my poor english.
I'm similar to you more than you imagine, but my english don't permit me to do what you do here. With my colleagues and friends I am!
The idea of this post is born after reading the answer to UELI. I think I am the 2nd man that can understand what you wrote between the words (the 1st are you)
Here is what a normal person can understand from that post:
- UELI, you are a good person, you helped me many times...and so on.... but if you want to leave this board....do it! who cares!
If I read the same post with Riccardo eyes (also your eyes) I read:
- You cannot do this to us, you are a good person, you helped me many times...and so on.... please don't leave, we need you, please!
So different uh? but I'm sure that the 2nd is the truth.
I think you have a double personality: the first is a caring, sweet, humorous man, that hides himself (CH chronic helps a lot in this) behind an excessively and no-limits humour, an aggressive and "who-cares!" man
See, I tell you this because I am too! I cannot do this on the board, else I will be kicked out immediately, my english don't permit me to do these things, my words will be catched always in the wrong sense. I did it few times, and the results was terrible (do you remember what I did, Amanda, Nancy and Elaine?).
The big problem is with newbies, and with those persons that do not catch your way to be humorous and strange in the answers and in the questions.
Your wife (as my wife) knows at well you, your daughters too and knows that there is not "bad" anger in what (and how) you say them. But ..... Laurie, how many months you have had to understand this? :-)
Dave, I hope that you will not see any bad word in all this. I have written with the heart. Only to share that I'm exactly idiot as you, but I'm an italian idiot!
Ciao friendiot, and kisses (only to daughters and wife, obviously...:-)
