    What did you mean by that then Occy?

    I apologised with meaning.. I think you deserved more empathy and I was harsh and rude to you. I believe you have unintentionally painted a picture of yourself that is not true to your nature, which may be contributing to the fact that people find your posts offensive and why i was actually surprised that you got defensive rather than just taken it in your typical style.

    I am actually sincerely sorry Occy. I won't be chasing your for your acceptance or forgiveness though.

    i think i understand where Occy is coming from..

    Im the exact opposite in so many ways.. I find something i think about the short term and forget the long term, and bang 6 months later it's like DUHH why didnt i think of this beforehand..

    Im getting better now i have kids and jobs etc.. Though i do send my other half mental with my "in the moment' ideas.. Mind you, i must of done something right with the dog as it took us 18 months to decide on a dog and 3 yrs of talking about it lol

    urghh I can see why Occy didn't like my apology.. it wasn't worded very well and to be honest I wouldn't have accepted it either.
    I wish she would take me off ignore for 2 seconds to see what I meant in the last 2 posts.

    Ah well.

    Occy

    I really think Puggerup meant well. The first sorry attempt wasn't worded all that well. And having/being "Aspergers" is not being "mental" or "crazy". Now who is being judgemental?

    I was referring more to her comments about my delusions of grandeur.

    Autism isn't a mental illness and considering my PM you should know where I stand on both those things

    You explained it that you see social patterns Occy.. that's typical of Aspergers actually.

    I see patterns also.. you said it in a way that made it seem as though you have this gift that others don't.. which is untrue.

    Like me, you worded it in a way that could be perceived differently to how you meant it to be.

    But yeh I am speaking to myself because you have me on ignore LOL

    Hi Occy

    Well, given that Puggerup and I are very literal in our meanings.

    She said something along the lines that you were a forward thinker and anticipate things that the rest of us don't and end up in the "I told you so" position as a reflection of what you said about yourself. She mentioned that the ability to do this would make you superior to the rest of us. It gets a bit complicated if we go a meta layer over the top, if you think you can, does that mean you only think you are superior - except that was her inference not yours. I'm sitting there thinking that maybe that having some ability that other people don't have - doesn't make you superior or inferior, let alone think that.

    She may have also extrapolated something I said about having a superiority complex or being perceived to have one... again - if you are always right - not that you ever wrote that - this would make you "superior"?

    Of course, even if it was theoretically true, and you were right more of the time than anybody else, there would be a whole lot of people who would find that intensely irritating, especially if you point it out. A lot of people don't like others who are better (superior) to them in any way (intellectually, financially, athletically...)

    Calling it a psychological problem is probably inappropriate.

    Puggerup's subsequent explanations and apology don't mention psychological problems or superiority complexes. They do mention puggerup moving on. Which seems like a good idea to me.
