Grumpy is back

Last Update: March 14, 2016

Hi WA peeps

I haven't managed to get online for a week. And I'm missing you all.

However was feeling guilty about not paying it forward...so I logged on and tried to help as many people as I could in 20 mins available.

Someone had asked a question. He hadn't had an answer in 3 days so I thought I'd help out. Especially because I knew the answer and could send him specific training on the subject (not done by me...but another fabulous WA member)

I thought I was helping this guy...but should have read his initial question ...as it was RUDE. Basically said don't reply unless you know the answer and don't answer unless you're specific. I actually saw his rudeness as a cry for help ...and I know that feeling...being so desperate for help that sometime you do and say things not normally in your nature.

So I replied. Told him exactly what to do to solve the issue and sent him some WA training which showed him step by step how to do exactly what he wanted.

Today I got a reply. It was even ruder. Basically he asked me why I bothered to respond as I hadn't answered his question and he still didn't know what to do. He said I was not specific and he asked for specific.

I admit to responding bluntly....I asked him if he had even bothered to view the training I sent to him *he hadn't otherwise he'd have solved his problem*

So....I was hugely annoyed. I helped this guy. I spent time resolving his issue I sent him very very specific training. I could have spent the 20 mins I had helping others and answering other questions. But I helped him.

HOWEVER

this is learning to me

Life we know is a mystery

We connect with others

Some connections are positive

Others are not

BEEN THERE DONE THAT

Why did I get upset. Should have ignored.

SO MY LOVELIES...

My message is....we will meet all types. We will offer our love and friendship and guidance and support ....and sometimes it won't be wanted.

So don't stress (like I did)...just move on to the other 99% of WA members who are brilliant and give more than they receive. Occasionally you'll come across life's energy vampires...those that suck and demand your time and blame you when they fail. Just remember Every time you help or support the majority of decent folk they will appreciate it And pay it forward

Just remember if you get knocked KNOW that it's not your issue. It's the knocker who has a problem. Do not let anyone impact on your esteem. You are brilliant and successful and the assistance you give others is awesome in everyway.

Now go succeed and wave at your vampires on the way past....

With such an attitude I am not surprised that nobody replied to his question in the first place ... I know I wouldn't even take the time to do so.
I have never been confronted by such negativity and rudeness here and I can say it's more of the opposite but yeah, I guess some people will never learn ;)

Moving on is the best thing we do in those situations.
We do what we can to help, but not everyone is kind enough to admit that. It's very sad, but we all learn with this.
I'll never stop helping if I see people that need it. Regardless of their response.

I agree Jason some people want it done for them and we are not helping as they need to learn for themselves, it could be he was not specific in his question, ksara as I say , shame someone feels the need to be that way.. oxygen thief's as I call them .. I was brought up with the principles manners are free so use them often it brings positive results... have a good week

This is the first 'negative' I've seen on here, so all in all I feel this site is full of brilliantly positive, helpful people. That's my experience so far anyway. I guess in the whole scheme of things there's bound to be one or maybe two, but as you quite rightly point out it's their problem not yours/ours. Thanks for sharing.
