This afternoon has been a horrible afternoon! In the grand scheme of things, it’s not that big but I feel I’ve been treated badly and all afternoon, I’ve waffled between wanting to cry and wanting to tell someone off . . badly. I did neither but my dear internet friend has been my crutch all afternoon. I don’t often need a crutch but til the wine is done chilling, thank you Judy.
Now . . my advice to those who seriously need to take their own advice and Grow Up! Once upon a time I had a computer that had issues. It was under warranty and I was getting the run around. I posted about it on the blog and I got a rather nasty comment on the blog and for those who don’t know . . every comment left comes with your IP address attached. That is seen by no one but me and I normally pay no attention to it. But the comment about the computer was so ugly that I traced the IP address and it went right back to the office company that I was dealing with . . to their corporate offices. Vince, being familiar with how corporate offices work, called the vice president of the company . . and we’re talking about a national company! Not only did I get an extreme apology, I got a new computer.
Nothing is anonymous on the internet. Nothing!
So dear family member (not my family but of the person I’m dealing with) who lives in or near Provo, Utah, I have your IP address and your ugly blog comments will not appear on the blog, but your comments have been forwarded to the complaint department with your IP address. Your actions are not making an already ugly situation any better.
