Hey man, mistakes happen. I think it's important to recognize when gossip is malicious.

At the same time, I suppose I can understand why she might be upset, but I would hope that it would blow over, considering how there was no ill intent.

I have too many times been in the position of saying something unintentionally inappropriate at work. My saving grace has always been that my coworkers know me well enough to know there is no ill intent in what I said or did, and that the occasional slip-up shouldn't be a ding on my character. What I know if you, I feel like you're much like me in that regard - people recognize you as a good person.

I mean, that's how I see you, at least. You've always been one to, in my opinion, go out of your way to make sure people don't feel uncomfortable or unwelcome. I can't imagine you being any different outside the confines of Funeratic.

Scott's Razor

Hanlon's Razor states:Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.That's cute, but aren't we all just a little quick to assume either explanation? Nobody trusts anybody else's judgment any more. Go »

Moving Day

You don't think about how much unnecessary stuff you own until you're paying someone by the hour to move it all. After Kelly and I moved into our new home last night, here's the current state of our living room, guest room, and garage. The house is a mess, and so are we. Go »
