    it is offensive for you to suggest 09 is being oversensitive about the situation.


    This is quite possibly the oddest thing I've read on the internet, and that's quite a competitive award.

    It's offensive for me to suggest someone is being oversensitive? Well, maybe it's offensive for you to suggest I'm being offensive!

    Of course I'm kidding to make a point.

    Offense is in the mind of the beholder. Anyone can choose to take offense or not at just about anything, especially something as mild as what happened here.

    What's essential is that someone break the cycle. Just let it go, stop the process of offenses at yourself. Brush the chips off your shoulder and don't assume the worst about what another person meant. Just let it go! Obsessing over something harms you much more than the person who offended you.

    Having said that, I'm going to practice what I preach. I've said my last piece on this subject, others can have the last words about this.

    I really hope that I was articulate enough to get my simple message of tolerance across, which is this: all things in perspective, let the little things go and don't be so quick to assume someone who's offended you meant to. Just let them know they did in a polite, unassuming manner and you may be surprised how much you like the result.

        As a society, why can't we talk to each other any more?


        Because everybody speaks a different language.

          No sir, I'm simply offering a suggestion as to how he (and all of us) should behave.

          I am with you Terry.

          I think that about sums it up. How and why did it come to this?

          Why is it in a world that has become so small, do people seem farther and farther away, harder and harder to comunicate with?

            My name is Sxx Rxxx, and my Southwest number is xxxxxxxxx. As you can see if you check my flight history, I have flown Southwest exclusively when I have had the opportunity for years. I have always received exemplary service until tonight. In fact, I am so incensed that I am actually writing this on the flight.


            One bad perception on your part and now you write a letter? Did you ever write a letter during the "... years. I have always received exemplary service"? I didn't think so.

            Ever been on an Asian flight? A Muslim flight? An African flight? (Chicago to Orlando on Southwest qualifies you as some big traveller? ) I've travelled more than you, and they ALWAYS assume I don't know the local language, won't eat the food, have no understanding of other religions, and they always give me no choice but to adhere to their rules of custom and religion. Rarely have I been given any of the "sensitivity" that you feel you can demand.

            I'd love to watch your reaction when you get on that Asian flight and they assume you speak Chinese. Will you be offended? Nope. You're just looking to be offended and you found it. And, since you only give white people one chance, I'll be on your sh!tlist forever.

                      This, in turn, will make that flight attendant upset and perhaps more "racist" if in fact there was every any racism present in her initial act.

                      Net result: more PC BS for everyone to deal with and more irritated / frightened people.


                      That's pretty close to what I was saying at the beginning of this thread. People feel they have to walk on eggshells for fear of offending someone. Saying the wrong thing. Saying the right thing but having it perceived as the wrong thing -which, according to the last sensitivity video I watched, is the same as saying the wrong thing since perception means everything and intent means nothing.

                      What it comes down to is fear of a lawsuit, and that makes everyone paranoid. You got it right, Mr. Knobs.
