Re: Job Issue - need to vent... what would you do?

I have missed you Jules. I really thought you had moved on from this BB. Now that I know it is you, I look forward to once again conversing with you on this forum. =^..^=

That's what you bothered to tell me? I have some advice for you then...don't read it.

Some people really have trouble reading long stories. No need to be nasty.

Re: Job Issue - need to vent... what would you do?

I think after reading that whole story and how it upset the OP that to write "paragraphs are your friend" was the rude comment!! I can understand if someone says they have trouble reading it or simply saying it was tough to read and paragraphs would make it easier but I don't think the OP was nasty at all considering the comment that the other poster wrote, that started the rudeness. There are ways to say something and that wasn't one of the right ways to say it.

Jules, you did everything you could- you even warned him and he still couldn't control himself..I am sorry he let you down like that-

And while there is no excuse for what he did, I have a feeling that he really will realize what he has done and will regret what he has lost..

Sophiamarie, by making that comment, Kachina just belittled everything that Jules was so upset about- It was a VERY shallow, and hurtful thing to say-

If she has so much trouble reading no paragraphs, then she should start thread about it, or pick a time, out of the heat of the moment, to reprimand...

The fix you found yourself in..........you created........you became familiar with a client and then want to get upset when he takes steps to follow your lead...............there is one sentence I was told once by an instructor, because of my nature to be familiar with patients.....................FRIENDLY.....NOT......FAMILIAR..........and she was right.....................................raven

You absolutely handled it well. Some men push the boundaries to see how far they can go and get away with it.

What a shame this has happened to you.

Follow my lead??!!! Wow! My "lead" was just being kind and listening to a lonely old guy rather than treating him like a J-O-B! It figures you would have a "blame the victim" mentality...or perhaps it's just because it's me. Regardless, you're wrong! I didn't create any fix, as you put it. I certainly didn't invite or encourage his behavior. You're entitled to your opinion, but I find your view very disturbing on many levels.

Re: Job Issue - need to vent... what would you do?

You absolutely did the right thing. I'd wonder though - has this man shown signs of dementia? I only ask bc they oftentimes do things they'd never have done otherwise. However, again, you did the right thing - if you don't protect yourself, no one else will. Also, if you hadn't done what you did and things went terribly wrong - the same people here questioning what you did would be whining about how its your fault because you should have nipped it in the bud early on.
