I got tired of starting over and working back to where I was, so I have stopped giving up!

Coumputers don't let you underline certain words so if I want a certain word(s) to stand out more than others I put those words in CAPS so they will. & the #1 thing I'll admit to here as I have on other sites when it COMES TO SPELLING FORGET IT I would NEVER win a SPELLING BEE if I was sent to 1. I've got a high school dipolma but only a 4th grade SPELLING LEVEL. Now you want to talk CEMICALS USES MIXES & CORECT SURFACES FOR USE OF THEM THAN ASK & I'LL TELL YOU ALL YOU NEED. & I'm NOT SCREAMING as all on this site think & I've said this several times. If I want certain words to stand out that's how I write when I'm on line.

Can anyone answer the question as to why I think he's in a hospital?
Sporadic rambling with no rhyme or reason.
Constant 'discussion' of being on a mental health board.
Insistent need to shout about history of mental health, seizure and other disorders.
Gee.....I must be leaping outrageously to come up with these conclusions, and we won't touch on the creepy posts.

I may not be there yet but I'm closer than I was yesterday.

23KAIYA- What gives you the Idea that I'm in a hospital? The last time I was in the hospital was over 2years ago because I was trying to lose weight & because of that my med level became TOXIC & they had to rejust my SEIZURE MEDS. & a fair warning if a Dr. got you on a medication that the doseage is concidered by your weight talk to that pricribing Dr. so that your meds can be regualated as you lose weight. NAMELY if your on DILANTIN.

He got his computer privileges back at the hospital, most posts aren't worth the time it takes to read them. The good ones we respond to, answer questions and play nice.

gardendive- you are correct.

there was only 3 or 4 active people on that team including me. so leaving it was not like a big loss or anything. i still listen to dave ramsey, and go to his website.

I came to this group to get away from the snooty posting, and I love it here. The laughs, playful flirting and poking fun. Some of the posts get heated, and when I keep my temper in check ( emoticon ) I learn a lot.

I may not be there yet but I'm closer than I was yesterday.

I do believe that that many of Mr Ramsey's followers are "Christians." I know that in my area he only gives lectures in churches and the mantra for his company is:

"The Lampo Group, Inc. is providing biblically based, common-sense education and empowerment which gives HOPE to everyone from the financially secure to the financially distressed."

Perhaps the person who made the comment is one of the Christians that likes to judge others. I would ignore the comments and share your news.

it's impossible to know the tone in written communication.

KJ, I think anybody who has read a few of your posts would know that your intent is never to hurt anyone's feelings. You just like to make people think and get some back and forth talk going.

GWBACH was spot on - we control our reactions. It's all about our own point of view.

I struggled with this concept because it's so much easier to blame somebody else when I'm angry or hurt than it is to say I was being irrational. A big bonus to taking charge of your reaction is it aggravates the crap out of some people when they realize they can't push your buttons any more. Now that's a win-win!

I'm a big Zig Ziglar fan. I even got to go to the Sunday school class he teaches in Dallas a few times (I have a friend who attended the same church). One of my favorite Zig quotes is, "nobody can get your goat if they don't know where it's tied. And if they find it...move it some place else!"

On-Topic: Ugh,.......I have been responsible for people LEAVING teams because of my type of poking and prodding and general instigating. But in my defense, I have done so to mostly bullys and trolls and sometimes there was collateral damage, innocent folks caught up in my crap.

In the beginning when I first joined I flirted with women a lot and then noticed them leaving the team we were in (some right here in NTOL).

That said, none of the reasons were being "snotty", just being a dick.

....now I feel bad.

I guess if one person can alter my mood, that is my fault. When someone has a opinion about me and cares to post it, good for them. and I hope they have the same courage when they post something that is not in the favor of everyone and someone post that feeling. I like a little criticism, and welcome the chance to better myself. But where I work, worship, marry and hang out with has no room for any ones opinion that I feel important, therefore, it becomes back ground noise.(Unless it is my wife telling me, then it turns into a very big deal)

I listen to Dave Ramsey on the radio now that I have money again. Have put together my $1,000 emergency fund and working on paying off my debt ( tell him I am making a few comfort purchases on E-bay). You should have asked that person where they worked and then mocked them for what ever lame ass job that they hold.

sorry that you were treated so rude. I would think a Ramsey fan would see the benefit of any legal employment. And if your job isn't their cup of tea, well they don't have to work it, do they?

that being said...I had somebody leave a team because of me. From my point of view, it was just a misunderstanding. I was totally agreeing with her. I apologized, but that didn't change anything for her.

I've also found myself irritated by certain posters. One of the boards I post on even has an IGNORE button, so you can ignore everything that person posts (the screen just shows their screen name, but nothing of their posts if you choose to ignore them).

funny thing is, in 2 cases, I realized the problem is MY take, not what was said. For example, one of the posters on an old board had Charter in her screen name. One day as I was riding my bike to the Y after work, I saw a Charter Cable van. I immediately had a negative response. Then I realized the person driving the van was a person that I really admire. His family has had some major difficulties and he has shown the community a shining example of handling tragedy.

What was the difference in how seeing the name Charter made me feel? Only my perception. I'm now actually email friends with the person I thought was so irritating. She has a razor sharp sarcastic wit (hard to tell that online).

the other person I thought was rather curt just has a different posting style. I accept that and really enjoy what she has to say.

if you enjoy the Ramsey team, see if YOU can revive it. Maybe others are checking and seeing no new posts, so they don't bother either. Don't give anybody control over how you feel. It's not easy to do, but it is possible.

Dave Ramsey, is a consultant/instructor who teaches people how to get their act together when it comes to their finances. There are classes held pretty much everywhere. He shows you how to get out of debt and get rid of dependence on credit cards. It's working for me and my wife.

I have been debating with myself to quit another team for the same reason. In my case it is one of the team leaders. Keeps everything nice and controlled and stuffy, there are no team discussions or posts, just a whole raft of sticky topics like how many glasses of water did you drink today, and my goals for this month are........daily points spin, etc. After I get back from my workout, I'm going to go ahead and drop that team.

It's a shame that one obnoxious person can spoil it for everyone. I like Dave Ramsay as well, and had no idea that there was a team.

Don't let her hijack something you found helpful and useful.

And thanks for the information. I'm going to check that team out.

relativly anonomous postings allow people to be such a$%H0#@, giving them the courage to say crap they wouldnt to someones face.
if it helps picture the poster sitting in his underware using his moms computer to say nasty stuff about a hard working, good looking gal like yourself.

hmmm is that why he's in his underroos?????

Ever quit a team cause of a snotty comment someone made?

After I got my new job, I posted on the dave ramsey team how excited I was getting a job so soon and am excited to be out of the food biz.

well one person was kinda douchy about getting a job at an adult store so after that i completely stopped posting on that team and deleted it.

I checked back and no one had posted since that d-bag made her comment, so a dead team.

ANYWAYS i sure would love too share my good insurance news cause it is a dave ramsey thing... saving money. But just dont want to be on a team with super judgemental a$$es.
