married, I live in a world where being wrong, and admitting it, is all part of my daily life - even when I'm usually right!!


Don't get me wrong.. But

Men - please turn to the left because
Women - are always right

Marriage is a relationship in which one is always right and the other one is the husband..

Right?

Geeze, I will "admit" that I'm "wrong" even when I'm not just because I get exhausted arguing over it. If I have to tell somebody the Earth is round enough times, I will eventually give up and "admit" the Earth is flat.

So when I'm actually wrong, I don't mind swallowing my pride to correct myself. I don't want to be this stupid forever. Nobody should be as stupid as are, forever.

I often admit that I'm wrong or don't know something. I even go as far to apologize to mods when I have off topic posts removed. It's not that I'm a brown noser. I admit when I've done wrong and am not afraid to do so.

That's what grown-ups do.

I have an employee who made a bunch of mistakes during his 3 month internship period.

He walked into my office, sad, his chin down to his knees after his latest mistake.

"You're going to fire me", he said.

"Why?", I said.

"Because I made so many f### up mistakes", he said.

I said, "I wish I could assign payroll to pay time during mistakes as a training period. People make mistakes. Everyone does all the time. Its if we learn from them that makes the difference. You made mistakes but you didn't repeat them. You learned. And you're hired full time".

Good deal! I bet that made the employee's day. As far as learning from mistakes, I agree. That's where wisdom comes from. It's very important to learn from mistakes rather than repeating the same ones over and over.

I didn't see that thread. I try to avoid descriptors like that as much as humanly possible.

He was a vet who had been unemployed for 3 years. He's now making 58K plus and my best employee.

You got a problem with me? Meet me on Elder Scrolls Online and I will kick your ass!


It's a shame really! Admitting you were or are wrong is soooooooo liberating!!!!!! Imagine those who suffer in life from their guilt which would not exist if they were only brave enough to say, "I'm sorry, I was wrong.". Those who don't understand that concept will always feel righteous and needy and blame everyone else in their life for their problems rather than taking a look in a mirror........



I wouldn;t have pictured nyou on Elder Scrolls Online. Maybe the new av, though I don;t remember the previous one.

Meet me in Wartune! We shall duel in the Sylph attol!

If there weren't passionate discussions between myself and my loyal opposition; I would look for another place to play.

It's the internet. It's not real. It's entertainment! Some people put way to much emotional investment in the threads. Look, If you are going to get your feelings hurt; don't run with the big dogs...stay on the porch.

Iv'e been wrong plenty of times.....and Ive admitted it. I've even said I'll shave my head and eat my shoes if I'm proven wrong. And I mean it.


You happy now?

LMAO!

That's funny! I just joined a guild on ESO and someone wanted to know how old everyone was and I said, 53!

What! Really!

Anyhow, I hate Pvp, I am a dungeon runner.,.......!

Once you accept that we're all imperfect, it's the most liberating thing in the world. Then you can go around making mistakes and saying the wrong thing and tripping over on the street and all that and not feel worried.

I thought it was part of the Boy Code:

Never show fear.
Never back down.
Never admit to not knowing something and

Heaven (or Odin) forbid ever admit to an error.

There are others but I'd have to look them up - whole books on the subject in fact.

The debating is good. Even if it goes for a couple hours. Join a debate team, it will happen. But I do see circles and circles of just factions and we are better than this.

I mentioned the 'descriptors' before. I have tried to shed them like shedding fat in a diet. I mainly succeed. I have gone as far as to yell at others about them, lol.

Some of it is the 'nature' of 'here'. Some of it is just nonsense. I will admit now, that even if I back up my nonsense with a reasonable source, it can still be nonsense.

I keep thinking I should take off days on the political threads and just don't.

Most of us make a good group. the political forums are what get us. maybe a break from those for a bit. There is no right or wrong in those, empirically speaking.

Maybe, as a group, we should decide to contribute to topics that aren't politically/racially motivated, exclusively, for awhile.

Like dungeon group parties as well. In WT, we have people from 15-70 in my guild, which is #1 ion the server. I have been a Guild Master about 15x the last 4 years in WT and Evony. I would always pick for officers and assistants people who were older and people with military experience. Was never let down by them. They were always there when they said they would be for a battle.

I'm wrong all the time and I readily admit too it. This thread reminds me of a lyric from the grateful dead. " I ain't often right but I've never been wrong" . Great song called scarlet begonias

I think I will pull that song from youtube, and I am off to Wartune to fight fake monsters and online avatars
