What is with...

all the sensitiveness sometimes? When I answered another post a few days ago I made a joke about how I wanted to get deployed but that DH would have to stop getting me pregnant first. An innocent joke, I have said it to his face and he thought it was pretty funny. Yet apparently some moms here on CM did not find it amusing at all and it got a few down votes. It was a simple joke, I love DH, I love DD, and I love the baby that I am growing right now. It was just a joke because I was pregnant last year and I really wanted to get deployed sometime later this year but in May we found out I was pregnant again, after using birth control and condoms, so it was a bit of a laugh. Some people are so touchy!

  • Drama queens! I think they have to either be in the military to understand or a military spouse. I find it funny and can laugh about it because its just a joke! Kinda like the "you can tell when a group is about to get back by the number of pregnant wives there are"

  • can not hear tone of voice or body language through computer screen
    many things are read and the interpretation is cloudy by what kind of day the reader has had or their personality etc

    when joking in person, it becomes obvious
    when kidding on compter - more difficult to tell

    bet 90% or those whose did not like commnet, would have laughed, giggles or at least smiled
    if they heard your comment face to face

  • Because people think every votedown diminishes your character, charges your bank account, causes weight gain, and means you're more likely to have a cheating spouse. Sensitivity, you say? Its a game, no bearing on real life.

  • Not really sure. LOL, but at the end of the comment I did put LOL, to make sure everyone knew it was a joke.
