PDA

View Full Version : Explanation......

I was advised that it would be a good idea to post an explanation/apology for my "absence" for the past 7 months. Either that or change my Name, leave or continue to lurk. I love the community here, so I prefer to stay, and I will not hide from any mistakes I may have made, hence the following explanation.

As you may or may not have been aware of, I'll assume most of you noticed at least the absence of my annoying posts, I have not posted since late August of last year. While on my trip back to Missouri my wife had to have $50 for a bill in Billings MT. She was broke until the following week and asked if I minded if she called Greg and asked to borrow it and have him to run it by.She would then send it back to him when she got her paycheck the following week. I told her she was free to ask, but make sure that she sent it back to him ASAP. After that phone conversation Ii thought little of it, other than to send Greg a thank you note, and assumed it would be taken care of.

About 3 weeks later I received word that the loan had not been repaid, and reminded the wife to do it asap. About 3 weeks later when we returned from Shriner's Hosp hosp I found a letter from Greg waiting for me stating he had not yet received the money. After a lengthy argument/discussion with the wife on the subject, I sent Greg a PM stating that it was being sent ASAP. I thought at this point I had it taken care of by mailing it to him. Afterward I promptly forgot about it.

Being as busy as I was I had to make a conscious choice to not post on the BB, as I was struggling to keep up with my class work, and was constantly falling behind. I did frequently check the front page for any good news, but made myself not post as I knew if I did I would start spending way to much time here.

To make a long story short, in February of this year I finally decided to take some time to log on and post a bit, as my class load had decreased somewhat this semester and I was keeping up. It was at this time I noticed my log-on name had been changed too PayGregBitch, which immediately caught my attention. I instantly emailed Greg and found out he had never received the letter with payment. I then made arrangements to meet Greg in Billings the very next weekend, which I did.

Greg and I had a very long and pleasant conversation, and frankly one that I enjoyed, and parted after 1 1/2 hours with no problems between us. I never made any excuses to Greg during our meeting about the problem of not paying him promptly, only explained what had happened from my point of view, and will not make excuses now either. The biggest problem in this whole affair is I assumed many things during this whole process, and you know what they say about assuming things, and that is my fault entirely. LET ME BE COMPLETELY CLEAR, I TAKE COMPLETE AND TOTAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE SITUATION BETWEEN GREG & I.
As I have already stated i never was hiding from Greg or anyone else here on the Planet, I was just to busy to take the time to post.

Now it has also been alluded to that this is connected to do with the Christmas thread back in 2003, that resulted in several fellow Planet members sending gifts and or money for gifts for my children. A couple of people have hinted or outright accused me of pulling some sort of scam to receive those gifts, or that they were not used for or given to my children. Let me state for the record, EVERY SINGLE CENT & GIFT WAS GIVEN TO MY CHILDREN!!

For those who do not remember the thread, I started a thread and was talking about how lean Christmas was going to be with me going to school full-time, and cash being very low. Sometime during that thread several members PM'd me or Pastor Mike and offered to send gifts or cash for my children, in the spirit of the holiday. I never, NEVER solicited anything from anyone during that thread or at any other time!

After Christmas I sent a email or PM to everyone (or to as many as had given there name) who had given gifts. It was probably the best Christmas we as a family have had in many years due to the fact that people who had never meet my kids reached into their hearts and gave to someone less fortunate. I also sent Christmas cards this year to all of those that I still had addresses for, to again thank them for last years generosity.

I have sent PM's to those people that were generous enough to bless my children that Christmas, before I posted this thread. So far ALL of those that replied have no problem with giving those gifts. If any of the few others who have not yet responded do have an issue I will settle it in private, as I feel this is not & and should not be a public issue that would cause problems for the PLANET community. I will state for the record I have offered to repay any gift that was sent if any wanted me too.
Again I only bring this up to stop any false rumor's or stories that might be or start circulating, and for the fact I was asked by one of the "Powers to be" here.

Now on a personal note, I have missed having the time to post, chat converse, argue and get/give advice from this great group of people. I'm still overloaded with school work, and with the new baby in the house sleep is a rare commodity. Hopefully I will try and post a little, at least till summer gets here and I have some true free time.

So I guess It's up to the community what happens next. If you feel the need to slam or lecture me, feel free as I put my standing here on the planet at your mercy. :Poke:

Man lighten up... Take a load off... I defended you here http://chiefsplanet.com/BB/showthread.php?p=2226088#post2226088 before you even said anything because I felt it was dirty the way they were slandering your name after they'd contributed things to you and your family.

The lesson you should've learned was, try not to accept gifts from people because it gives them a sense that makes them think you owe them something or that you're less of a person because they did something for you when in all actuality... gift-giving shouldn't be about that at all.

Glad to have you back.

Misunderstandings, misjudgements, lack of attention to detail...hey, we've all had our moments--none of us are perfect. If Bwana is happy, that's good enough for me. If others wish hold a grudge or call you a liar, I've found they are going to do that....now matter what you say, some people believe what they want to believe. 'Forgive and forget,' and 'moving on' just aren't things that come easy for some people.

This IS a great community. Hell, I feel like it's a second family at times....we have all the elements: knock-down drag-outs, extraordinary acts of compassion, wierd/eccentric 'uncles,' airheads, communists, facists, holy-rollers, athiests, doctors, lawyers, arrogant snobs, white trash, blue collar, white collar, liars, saints, dumbasses, asshats, genuinely nice people, conservatives, liberals...eh, you get the idea. Hell, if I make it to future CP events, I'm gonna probably have to even be nice in person to people like Duhnise or Skip Towne if they were to show up...you can't be mean to your bitchy crazy aunts, or your senile Grandpa. It's like a rule or somethin' I think.

Welcome back. I hope your explanation of things will clear things up for most members, and allow us all to move on. They've given me a second chance (third, and fourth chance....although gochief's is working on his 8th or 9th life as the resident feline....heh). I suspect most won't care about this in a few months.

JMHO.

Being new here and since I refuse to post on a thread unless I have something at least semi-constructive or relevant to add getting to know everyone has been slow. As a result I rarely know whats being talked about if it happened more than a month ago and I've wondered at times if I haven't strayed into a bi-polar support group but after reading that people sent presents and/or cash to make christmas better for some kids they've probably never met....... I have to admit that its shed a different light on this community.

I don't care what the facts of the story behind this were. That line right there tells me there are people here who are worth getting to know.

First let me say that its good to see you back around.

You'll see in the thread that watamess posted that I had some harsh words. As a man, I assume you'll understand what this looked like(the fact that you weren't around is what nailed it for me)....

This quote hopefully explains my thinking...Even being here for 5 fargin years.........I'm still untrusting of "internet People"......Even though the planet has its share of High Quality futhermuckers.

That whole internet thing, not "knowin'" people....it's kinda hard to get over most places; it's why I'm addicted to this place...because people here are really genuine, and cool....and "fun"....in my experience.

My oldest boy still would wear that jersey 5 days a week if we'd let him. Thanks again.

Mr Blonde might have been the strangest departure of all time.

Anyone know the story behind that?

Welcome back, John.

Now put your apron back on and get the vacuuming done. (Did I really beat PastorMikH to a comment like that? ;) )


Seriously tho, good to see that everything has been worked out. Best of luck in school. Hope you have a little time to post now and then!

That would be fantastic, but I think he was really pissed off when he hit the trail.

Yeah, I know. Too bad. I had his phone number once, but lost it. Wish I knew how to get ahold of him. He's a good guy. Hooking Brad and me up with those tickets was awesome. Wouldn't take a dime for them, either.

I certainly contributed to this giant misunderstanding. I gave you the benefit of the doubt for a while and then the "evidence" kept piling up. I'm glad it's taken care of now. You may want to drop Laz a PM. I think there's still an unresolved matter with him.

This IS a great community. Hell, I feel like it's a second family at times....we have all the elements: knock-down drag-outs, extraordinary acts of compassion, wierd/eccentric 'uncles,' airheads, communists, facists, holy-rollers, athiests, doctors, lawyers, arrogant snobs, white trash, blue collar, white collar, liars, saints, dumbasses, asshats, genuinely nice people, conservatives, liberals...eh, you get the idea. Hell, if I make it to future CP events, I'm gonna probably have to even be nice in person to people like Duhnise or Skip Towne if they were to show up...you can't be mean to your bitchy crazy aunts, or your senile Grandpa. It's like a rule or somethin' I think.

truthfully I was at that point until I read a certain thread, afterwords I felt like kicking myself repeatedly for allowing this to happen and in the process disappointing many people here who I consider friends.

I guess I feel like I owe a total explanation, and need to make sure that no one thinks the Christmas spirit that was blessed upon my children and my family was in anyway a deception.

NO....I don't think you do owe any further explanation.

I think the kicker that put the gears to spinning was the fact that you, an original member, quit posting around the same time.

Its my opinion that you sacked up here, squared things in person with Bwana.......and You're good to go. The sooner you move on, the sooner you'll be singing the Barber of Saville, Alphalfa.

Well.....

it's not quite that simple. There's a whole lot of coincidence, circumstance, and irresponsibility that make this situation look worse than it actually was. $50 was the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back.

But, I think the collective decision is "bygones" so I don't think rehashing the whole thing in the interest of accuracy is appropriate. Suffice it to say, a timeline and the details shed JOhn (and/or his wife) in a poor light. I'm glad it has ended well.
