Just did the stupidest thing and whatever the consequences, it serves me right for talking behind someone’s back.
Is there a graceful way for me to get out from under this?
I’m on an e-mail list – discussing books – there’s a new member, 15 years old, who has been just a tad annoying – she just doesn’t pay attention, asks really stupid questions but doesn’t listen to the answers.
She posted a particularly silly message today and I intended to forward it to a friend so she could chuckle too – and in the message I, um, referred to the teenager as an idiot.
Of course, instead of “forwarding” the message, I “replied”. Now the whole list is gonna hear me call our newest member an idiot.
I’m the idiot.
Wondering if I should just unsubscribe or wait til they kick me out.
Oh geez, the letter icon is up – I’m almost afraid to go there.
