Man I wished I would have never said that.

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Just the other day I wrote a blog.  Someone commented on it and I read the comment the wrong way.  I fired back a reply and as I hit the send button I thought man I sure wished I had not sent it.  As a former law enforcement officer they teach you lots of things and temperament was one.  I haven't learned yet to control it sometimes.  To those of you that I have p----s off earlier and yet to come give me a few to adjust.

Communication...sometimes not pretty, well thought out but now on line for the world to see, circling the globe like space junk, defunct satellites.

I never make comments here that are negative because you never know whose reading them.  And, I get Google Alerts frequently that show someone is reading not only blogs but comments as well.  I think you have given everyone some food for thought.

I proofread everything I send.  By doing this I not only correct my mistakes, but I have a chance to change my wording.

We have all sent an email or message via AR that we would want to change.  I usually go right back to the blog oce I realize my mistake and hit "delete".  If I want to correct a spelling error, hit "edit."

It's easy to say the wrong thing, and it's a pleasure these days for someone tostep up and say "I was wrong or I am sorry." Everyone makes mistakes and the strong admit it. Way to go!

hey James, i'm so with you on that...why isn't there a saved draft buttone on comments prior to sending on hot topics!!  You know that you can always delete the post after sent anyway just to spare yourself some embarrassment!!

That's funny but I admire your candor. My wife has always made me wait at least a day before I hit the send button just to cool my jets and re assess. Doesn't always work however. Just the other day I let my emotions get in front of my rational judgment and fired off a response to a post from another AR member only to create an onslaught of very high stung comments from both he and I. Nobody wins in these situations.

AR should have a politically correct button we could hit before sending out emails, blogs and comments.

James,

I'm sure we've all been there, done that at one time or another.  Sometimes when I'm really peeved off about someone's comment or post, etc. I take some time, walk away and then come back to respond.  I've also written out a response and then after I got out my frustration, didn't post it anyway because just getting it off my chest relieved me of the anger.

Tone can often be misinterpreted in writing.  It's happened to all of us, and it'll happen again.  All you can do is square up with the other person and move on!

AR allows you to delete your own comment or edit it. I would think that that would have been faster than writing a new blog post. But, then I am kind of slow at the keyboard. Good Luck.

It happens. We just have to do our best to make amends and then move forward.

It's easy to read a comment or even a blog post the wrong way. Words are different in writing than they are in speech - no emphasis here and inflections there to help make it come out the way we intended.

Customers read what we write and form opinions based on the personality we present online.  Fortunately here on AR we can usually delete our comments (though I think if they are on someone else's blog, we may lose that ability after a period of time has passed.)
