Is it emotionally devastating to accidentally spill coffee at work?

To break up your bickering, I got a funny story.

My coworker recently was thinking about getting a giant flowering plant and she asked me about its care. For instance, how much sun it needs, etc. I answered every one of her questions and to wrap it up, I gave her the last bit of critical info.

She asked me what was critical and I said if you get this plant, you need to give it everything it wants when it wants it. I paused for a dramatic effect. Then I said, "Because if you don't, it'll get mad and kill you!"

I LMAO and she looked at me weird. And with each such joke I make, I come closer to putting my past at that fast food joint behind me.

@darkangel1720,
That is truly funny. Thank you. I've been trying my best to make the most of this nonsense. That really helped. It's good to hear you are feeling better. Again. Thank you.

now you are accusing me of threatening you.




Because you are, and I case I wasn't clear, I want you to stop.

Explaining yourself away after the fact is, well, after the fact. You made a general threat. Not to me. Please don't do that again. Threats are a very serious matter regardless of who they are made towards.

You have my word. I will never ask you if you want me to have one of my friends take care of you verbally again.

@darkangel1720,
One of the people that was mentioned this morning is a dear, sweet , very close , very sensitive friend of mine. I was so afraid that she would be hurt by what was said this morning. She was not. I cannot talk to you because I will walk off this planet before I risk hurting her.
Again, I really am glad that you are finding happiness in this world.
Like I wrote earlier.
Always remember you are surrounded by people who love.

Nor should you make threats to anyone else on this site again. You apparently don’t understand how serious it is to threaten someone on the internet. As evidenced by the fact that you found someone threatening to kill someone very funny.

@Ponderer,
Yes dear, I understand who said it.

You stated you thought it was "truly funny".

So, not only are we dealing with someone (you) who makes a threat to me "do you want to let one of my friends take care of you?", who threatens vikorr by stating "believe me, I'm not through with you, you crossed a line....", who, when called out on that 2nd threat, tries to explain it away by making yet another threat "I meant that when I get through with him verbally he will wish he had had the option of the back of my hand.", then tries to amend/fix it all by trying to make it that you are the victim being harrassed.

On top of that, you find humor in the threats made by someone else, of killing someone.

What I stated was "As evidenced by the fact that you found someone threatening to kill someone very funny."

How many feet do you feel you can insert in your mouth ponderer?

1. Where is the joke?
2. Where is the humor?
3. I cannot find a funny story anywhere in your post.

@Real Music,
Real Music, you just reminded me of someone I knew. It happened to be in a work situation.

I started to go through menopause maybe 3 years earlier than usual. I know my body pretty well, and mentioned during a related conversation that I hadn't had a period for 2 months, and doubted I ever would again (I didn't).

She was well aware of my child free status, and thought it was just the funniest thing to tell me that maybe I was pregnant. When I just kinda grunted at that, she really went at it, telling me that I might just be having a late pregnancy, wouldn't that be something, blah blah blah.

I said (she already knew this) that my husband had already had a vasectomy like 13 years before I even met him, so between my age, and the fact he had been sterilized, I really doubted it.

She said in this sing song voice "But those things can fail you know. hehehe" Like she really, really wanted me, in my mid 40's, with zero interest in children, with a husband 12 years older than me, also with no interest in kids, to have a baby.

At that point I figured that this BS had to end, so I just said "Well, if by some remote chance it is a pregnancy, I guess I'll be taking a day off soon to get an abortion."

Well, maybe that last part was a little funny.

@Real Music,
It's not about being funny, it's about making the other person feel uncomfortable and laughing at their discomfort.
