So I’m kind of worried that this will come across as insincere or self serving or whatever. But I feel like I have to say sorry because I was mean and rude and I don’t want any of the awesome people on Weddingbee to think of me as a mean, rude person.
So listen – I’ve had a really bad week. It’s been filled with rage and sadness and all sorts of bad things that have put me in a very bad mood, which has not been helped by working crazy hours. But that’s no excuse – I’m an adult and I should have dealt with my emotions in an adult way instead of taking them out on other people.
I’ve been pretty rude all week, but I was especially crappy on Wednesday. So to anybody I offended – I’m really, really sorry.
My initial posts on this site were kind of mean and judgy and I don’t want to go back to that. I came on to Weddingbee to vent and the sarcastic tone that I had been using on other forums and sites wasn’t right for this the hive (that’s a a criticism of me, not Weddingbee). Some of the things other bees said and did irritated me and I expressed things in a way that was not cool. So I’m sorry for that too.
I don’t want you guys to think of me an an asshole. So please accept this apology.

I wasn’t around for whatever you did, but at least you apologized.
Good for you.

It takes a big Bee to apologize.

ETA: I totally just creeped all your posts this week, and unless you deleted a post or something, I see absolutely nothing you need to apologize for, but if you feel the need, kudos to you for doing it!

@Ruby-Redshoes: I never say sorry, so kudos to you for apologizing! (I meant I never say sorry on the bee!) I didn’t take the time to creep your posts. And nothing stands out to me so I either missed your asshole behavior 😉 or there was none to begin with.

Everyone has those kinds of days 🙂 I try not to judge any harsh sounding posts for those exact reasons. You never know what that person is going through. Good for you for such a wonderful apology to the hive- even though I don’t see anything worth apologizing for!

@Baroness_Meg: Well thanks :). I think I was a little bitchy in general, but there were a few times (especially one on a thread called ‘Unwilling to adopt’) that towed the line into unacceptable. Maybe they weren’t that bad but I try to be as nice and encouraging on here as I can – I really value the kindness of this community and I like that the most respected members are the ones who treat everybody with courtesy and respect.

@Ruby-Redshoes: I actually think you’re funny and have no reason to apologize for having an opinion.

I think anyone with a set of ovaries gets a free pass every now and then for being irrational. It happens. Hope you’re feeling better.
edit: One ovary, too in case anyone needed to have one removed! Maybe even none at all! lol

@Ruby-Redshoes: FWIW, I’m new here and I didn’t see any of your posts, but I have to say I really respect you for apologizing! It’s such a rarity on the Internet these days to see someone take responsibility for their behavior and it’s really refreshing! PS Sounds like you weren’t too bad anyways from what PPs said! 😉

@Ruby-Redshoes: I don’t know what happened, you didn’t offend me! 🙂 I just wanted to offer you hugs because everyone has shitty days/weeks!!! Hang in there!!!

@Ruby-Redshoes: I don’t know what you said either, but I tip my hat to you for your apology. =) Seems like you have a kind heart and soul.

I also don’t know the specific posts you’re refering to, but seeing a bee step up and apologize when they feel they have done wrong restores my faith in humanity a bit 🙂 Not many people would have the guts to do this, so a big high five to you!! Hope today is a much more awesome one than you’ve been having!
