I've been told that sometimes, due to something in my writing style which I apparently don't notice, people think that for some reason I am offended or I'm being brusque, when I myself am not, nor am I trying to sound brusque. Quite often when this happens, I had no idea people were taking what I was writing the wrong way, and getting their feelings hurt. I personally don't realize when I'm giving off that impression until some people say stuff like, "I didn't mean to offend you" and I have no idea that they thought I was offended.

Has anyone else been in a situation when you just didn't realize how you sounded and wound up making someone think you were mad at them when you weren't, or something like that?

I can't believe you would write something like that. I'm giving you a warning.

Unfortunately, I can't find the button that slaps "WARNED" on you. I could suspend you, but that might be taking the joke a bit too far.

Sometimes (sighs wearily and rolls eyeballs) I find (tut's loudly) that I sometimes (mutters under breath: for fuck's sake) give people that impression too.

I have deleted, edited, overused emoticons, mods delete, mods fix (thanks Wink ) and you are as norm as myself. Shocked

I think I've said it before that I need all the help that I can get. Wink

That's what I like about this facility. The Docs and nurses have always been so nice about it. Smile

I now slap lads and have learned to be a better person with everyone else.

I have always liked me, now I love me. Laughing

It sometimes depends on your normal warmness/fuzziness levels and who you're dealing with, I find. For example, most of the people in my department tend to be very warm and fuzzy and friendly, even when we say "no" to people. We often apologize and take the time to explain why we can't do something, or offer an altrnative, even when saying no to incredibly stupid requests. By contrast, our network guy is a bit more to the point and less apologetic. He's in no way rude or brusque, yet, some people will interpret that as him "biting their head off". Mind, there's one lady here who seems determined to be offended by all of us regardless of what we do or say. She calls me to relay messages to the network guy...

I once wrote her a very lengthy email explaining, in detail, why I could easily fix one problem she reported myself, but not a similar one, which involved Support for the product. Why? Because, silly me, I thought she actually wanted to know, since she asked me why I could fix one, not the other. She interpreted the fact that I had answered her question in detail as me being offended, rather than me being a fast typist and very detail oriented in troubleshooting mode. I guess the question was rhetorical or something...

Try being less brief. Or sign all your emails with "Hugs 'n' kisses".

Yes, many times.. In real life and on forums. You catch someone having a bad day and you're going to pay for it Wink. You can also say something, while looking at the person, and you can see their eye brows instantly go up like it offends them.. So that's when you quickly change the subject to porn.

The other way around too, sometimes I say something rude, and everyone thinks I'm joking (real life, and forums).

^^^^ me neither. At least not within the past few minutes.

Although I really offended someone on Friday morning. He deserved it, plus it gave him an excuse to drink more heavily on Friday night.

I do have to say that I'm pretty offended that the topic has even come up.

I know the problem, FOC, and have done the same, equally unawares. My writing style can switch into formal/business mode sometimes, and that can agitate people or give the wrong impression. Sad I think that there's a cultural thing at play here as well. Whilst I don't want to generalise too much, us Brits tend to be a little more reserved than our American cousins. There's a risk that Brits may sound somewhat flat next to more fulsome expressions of praise or congratulations from the US people, when we are as impressed as them, but post about it differently. Smile

@Eight - such as the british calling me a wanker? Doesn't that mean that I am doing an awesome job at wanking (does that mean writing?)

Yes, I actually know what the term wanker means.. damn it!
