A grip of what, Pugger?
Your post above explains your feelings, your opinion. No-one in their right mind could have a problem with that.
You are surprised Kassie can spell those two words. I read that and believe I know what you meant by it, but some ppl could construe that as being an insult or a 'put-down', which I'm certain it wasn't.
However, if you were told by others that you need to 'get a grip' because your opinion differed from someone else, how fair would that feel to you?
