Poignant near misses

Too easy to say "next time"

Leaving San Diego for this trip, I missed a 30+ year old school mates rendezvous by 1 day. She flew out for Missouri to join her family after living in San Diego for three decades.

She, and you, are two near misses on one trip.

So sorry!

For me, it ain't the scenery, it's the people

Learned to sea kayak there in '92 while spending Thanksgiving at
Don Johnson's Hotel Serenidad. A great fly-in resort in its day.

[QUOTE=Jenn;23336066]You're not sorry - you have a very clear opinion and don't need to pretend to apologize.

YMMV -- speaking as someone who is female and who has worked as a "strictly therapeutic" massage therapist (deep tissue/sports) -- every single male client, after some period of time, starts to broach the subject of "Do you think you could... ?"

Clothing doesn't matter (I never wore "sexy" clothing), nor the setting (in or out call), look like (ugly) or services specified (seriously - you want someone who does sports massage to do THAT?)

PS: I was just JOKING. You got that, right? I wasn't disparaging massage therapists or clients, stereotypes are frequently not without basis, ymmv.

No, I didn't get that. Sarcasm doesn't work real well here...causes a lot of flame wars. I don't have the faintest idea what ymmv means.

"Sorry" was more a figure of speech than an apology. I personally could not imagine propositioning my female massage therapist in the context of her work. It would be a violation of trust and the vulnerable place in which client and therapist place themselves in a therapeutic relationship. I get massages for healing and centering not for hedonistic indulgence.

You are right. I don't need to apologize or "pretend to apologize" about my clearly stated opinions although I reserve the right to change them based on new information.

I never, ever trust those damned electric water heaters.
Not when a building code never specifies a ground.

RMO...YMMV means "your mileage may vary" a disclaimer of sorts like big Auto uses when marketing for mileage claims.

Personally, I find it hard to fathom why anyone would proposition a health care services professional. First, there are likely ethics (ok, call me old school but I believe in professional ethics) involved, second, the whole thing will turn pear shaped and into a pile of steaming sht once one person involved feels slighted. I will likely be called naive, but I do believe there are certain lines in life that are not good to cross.

A great bit of word play , ground/ ground, made into a real life example.Somebody has a good sense of humor there and took some trouble to set up the visual joke.
I never have any qualms about using such an electric shower, there is no need to touch any of its parts in use. It all works by simply turning on the
water. The only point to remember is for tall people not to reach too high
when scrubbing under the arms
It is not like sitting in a tub of water and having a metal microphone in your hands."Safe when used as directed"

As I mentioned earlier I've been going to the same practice for 20 years. Know the owners well. They typically employ 4-6 therapists. Incidents of propositioning from male clients has occurred but very rare. Can only wonder what kind of places Jenn works in to encounter it so often.
