Congratulations Doug Dawes!

Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

Congratulations to Doug Dawes for fully completing the March to a Solution|ActiveRain March 2023 Challenge! Please accept our virtual handful of gold for your achievement! After what you lived through in your career in an Attorney State, you deserve the virtual gold and maybe a keg of beer, a barrel of wine, or whatever libations makes you relax and be thankful you got through those crazy scenarios! You had your share of problematic situations and you learned a lot too. How you got through those three stories you entered for the March 2023 Challenge is beyond me. I have a feeling, this was very therapeutic too. 

Thank you, Doug for sharing! It's little wonder we continue to have trouble communicating with one another. To quote Wayne Martin, some people are really "Screwed up!"

Without the F-Bomb, cussing up a storm by firing off abusive rhetoric,  slamming the table at the end of  closing and walking out the door, or discovering fraud, is it any wonder why there wouldn't be mental problems in our society and more people on drugs? I can't help but wonder, was it easier for you to serve in the Military?  

Perhaps what we need is to pass a multitude of tests before going into any professional field before getting licensed to learn:

  • Emotional intelligence
  • How to think straight
  • Bite your tongue and swallow your pride
  • Critical reasoning
  • Watch your words
  • Figure it out using problem solving 
  • Read contracts and leave no blanks
  • How to stay calm while the rest go crazy

Doug, I am now convinced more than ever, this was the easiest challenge for you to date on ActiveRain compared to what you've lived through and survived! If I were moving to Georgetown, Massachusetts, I would want YOU!

[BLUSH] Many folks go through far more harrowing situations than dealing with people's characters Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP. I thank you for your kind words. The first story was the one that had me locked and loaded for bear. The 2nd story was sad. The agent refused to clean up their act when speaking with me. In fact, it got worse and didn't stop until I called her agency.. The 3rd was a shocker the way the attorney acted.

Doug Dawes - from title to the content and how you laid out each section from Case, to the Problem, and the Solution your stories had me sitting on the edge of my chair. You're a great storyteller and I was fully engaged with each one. Lessons are to be shared. Thank you!!!

Congratulations on earning your virtual coins, Doug Dawes.  Do not spend it all in one place.

Well done, Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP.  I am amazed that you not only recognized those that completed all three entries, but that you spend so much time personalizing each recognition.  I am sure you have made a lot of ActiveRain Members feel very special.  Thank you!

Ray Henson - spreading joy and happiness is something that comes naturally to me. The education we received througout the month of March was exactly why I joined ActiveRain in the first place. For thiry-one days, there was always something interesting and educational to learn. How could I not figure out a way highlight everyone who fully completed the challenge? Everyone's submission, whether it was one, two or three blew my mind and I loved reading each one. A personal recognition was the very least I could do.

Thank you, Ray Henson , I was glad to read your comment that means so much to me.
