    Thank you. My temperament type is supposed to make diplomacy a suitable occupation for me but I don't see myself as so mild mannered. I was raised to value courtesy and consideration for others, but I am not easily intimidated or pushed around. And I do react passionately to things though I have learned the discipline to control that at least some of the time. But you ought to see all the posts I have typed out in anger or passion and then deleted as they would not have been useful to the discussion. :)

    I would never have known that! You??? You seem to be calm most of the time and have a lot of patience with others, unlike myself. :D

    By mild mannered, that is what I mean, calm and patient, not easily angered, that kind of thing.

    Well I have some miles on me that you still have to travel and maybe that gives us some perspective that we don't have when we are younger? I have infinite patience when dealing with people are are genuinely trying to get along, trying to learn, trying to perfect something, trying to accomplish something, or who can make a civil and coherent argument for a point of view that I don't share. I have almost no patience with people who get inappropriately angry, hateful, insulting, or arrogant, rude, dishonest, condescending, or overly aggressive and generally often react probably let's say unconstructively in such situations.

    For me, it all depends on what the argument is about. There are some things that I feel very passionately about and will fight to the death for! :lol: There are also some people who I would actually rather not have reply to me and wouldn't mind being ignored by them one bit! I get angry and heated and yes, I will insult others, but that is after having argued with them and figured out that they are dishonest and arguing from a dishonest perspective. Some people don't deserve respect, IMO.

    That is true. Very very true. On the other hand, I long ago made a conscious effort to avoid contributing to stuff like that and therefore prefer to wish folks a pleasant day and move on. Something about not arguing with idiots, feeding trolls, or engaging in exercises of futility.

    I stick to my guns on that maybe oh 85% of the time? :)

    Because you have patience. I wish I had some patience. I tell my son that I have no patience because I used it all up on him! :lol:

    In another 20 years or so you will have a lot more patience than you do now and that I did at your age. :)

    The paperwork is slow in coming. :( Could be post Thanksgiving? I can see how they don't want to pay a noobie Holiday pay the first workweek.

    I worked on a memorial garden at a church earlier in the Fall. They asked me to bid on another project and I have been working on that one after winning the bid. Hopefully I can get everyone finished before I start work at the post office. I'd like to concentrate on just that for a couple of weeks until I get the hang of it.
