Been fairly busy the past week, driving 1,100 miles, arriving last Sunday night and going back to work next AM. Plus we had to move this week. Needed to straighten and clean the house I've been in since last June before picking up the owner of the house at Sky Harbor Friday evening.
This week someone told me about a son lost part of his lung due to Valley Fever. I should be going back for more xrays soon.
Stan, I had a lot of time to think while driving from Dallas to Phoenix. Looking back over exchanges the past several weeks, I had more patience while running fever, waking up shaking, dealing with skin rashes and exhaustion. Now that I feel a little better, it just seems like a waste of time and effort to respond to people who (a) have no real purpose/serious intent, or (b) are simply repeating verbage they haven't bothered to think through themselves.
Let's say you took time out of a busy day to prepare a response in a message thread. Next day you read the reply to your post. It's pretty clear that the other party never bothered to read what you wrote in the first place. Would you be just a tad annoyed?
