Ms. Snip: Have I told you how much I enjoy our conversations?
Ms. Snipe: Well, not really. But you aren’t the only one. If there are any readers are out there they haven’t let me know. In today’s distrusting atmosphere I can understand why. Social media platforms are selling out their members, misinformation is the deal of the day and much of that comes from BC’s twitter insanity. But, when we indicate that we will not divulge information about any reader who responds to this conversation, WE MEAN IT. Your info is safe here.
Ms. Snip: Well, if I weren’t part of the conversation I would certainly reply online. Maybe a direct request is all you need.
Ms. Snipe: I’ll give it a try.
Attention readers, come on in – let me know what you think about this strange cast of characters. Not only Ms. Snip and myself but also BC ( Big Mouth), MO (Major Obfuscator), TH (Talking Heads), OCW (Obfuscation Capitol of the World), SM Shaggy Man), BM (Big Mouths), FOX (Animal Channel), WT( Waggish Trio), SQ (Spin Queen), OTLT (Out to Lunch Trio) and others. We do ask for your email but will not share it, sell it, or use it beyond our own possible reply.*
So, Snip, do you think that will engender any response.
Ms. Snip: All we can do is wait and see. What has been on your mind since we talked last?
Ms. Snipe: Almost too much to mention. It seems that if I let a day go by without some discussion there are too many disturbing topics to know which to choose.
Here’s one – Imagine you are in a group of highly trained and experienced professionals. It doesn’t matter what subject or profession, just know that you have been working and studying and have reached a high level of knowledge and experience. Then, your company’s board hires a new boss. This new boss has a colossal ego and believes he/she knows more than the rest of the world combined. Now your well-thought-out reports are discussed and refined among members of the group and the new ‘boss’ denigrates your findings because he/she believes differently and “… could probably be right.” This response comes in the form of a twitter as do most of the pronouncements of this ‘boss’. You read his twits trying to overlook obvious misspellings, poor grammar and blatant untruths. Wow –
Ms. Snip: Cute story, you made that up didn’t you?
Ms. Snipe: Oh how I wish it were entirely fiction.
Please readers, let me know you are out there. I need to know I won’t be the only one cringing on Tuesday, February 12 while listening to a speech. Yikes.
