Look, we're all human [even me!!!]
We all have a bad day now and then - we all make mistakes - we all get tired, cranky, discouraged, upset and feel a litany of other undesirable stuff - we all 'speak [or post] without thinking' - sure, it would be great if we were all perfect
but I'm not holding my breath for that to happen.
So - Victoria [HikeToHeights] made a mistake in posting, getting mixed up between miles and minutes. She's probably gone back and re-entered the data by now but if not, I'm sure she will as soon as she has time. She's apologized and frankly, I don't care whether she did it accidentally, on purpose or if she pleads insanity - it's not my problem, none of my business and it doesn't affect me in any way at all.
And now - MDWEBNECK has also made a mistake by posting what sounded like an angry accusation. The problem with written communication is that things often sound a lot worse than they were intended - I'm sure he's embarrassed about the posting and hurting inside because he's now left our team but I hope he will reconsider, rejoin and apologize. That was just another mistaken assumption and I'm sure he's sorry by now. I hope he will post a 'mea culpa' but either way, it's not my problem, none of my business and it doesn't affect ME in any way at all. And as I said, I'm sure he is embarrassed now.
Except for the fact that it hurt my friend and that hurts me - but I know HikeToHeights and I will both 'get over it and move on' quickly - we're both pretty well adjusted people [speaking for her more than me, I suppose - haha!] and assuming MDWEBNECK is also pretty well adjusted, I'm sure we can work things out.
