Unthinkers

To those who've recently done scummy things to people I care about:

I know you have a notion you're something, Mr. So-and-so who hacked into my daughter's cell phone account. But getting stuff for nothing from a hard-working college student, that's low. I hope the authorities find you and, well, taking a piece of your ear sounds pretty good at this moment. (Sorry, I'll calm down in a bit and just be happy if they toss you in a phoneless cell somewhere -- preferably Azkaban.)

Next, you three or four guys who last night swapped turns punching our friend "Chuck". Although he stands more than six feet now, this boy who grew up in our neighborhood playing with my son has the form of autism called Asperger's. He talks and talks and talks whenever he stops by, until our brains scream for relief, but he wouldn't bother a kitten. I wish anyone aiming to hurt Chuck gallons of really awful sour milk dumped in their underwear.

It's true, I have to remember I'm as big a jerk as any of you. If God wants to show you mercy at some point in the future, I'm not against it. But today, here, now, in my community, what you did was bad. Wrong. Evil. Don't ever do it again.

Oh, that's awful. People being tormented is horrific.

ugh. i'm sorry, but i think i'd be wishing for a heck of a lot more than sour milk, possibly pooping their pants in public would be the kindest version of what i'm thinking right now. a little shame does a heart wonders.

Patti and Angela, thanks. I had to blurt, but maybe should have spewed. You're both so right.

I guess the part that got me about what you said about yourself--being just as big of jerk and all. I wonder about that. Could we all claim to be just as bad as Hitler? Aren't there gradations of bad? I know that we're all sinful and worthy of death. But I have a hard time classifying everyone equally as bad.

I will be coming for the junior tea on the Sunday after Oktoberfuss. Actually my two girls and I will be driving and will probably arrive on Friday. But as it turns out someone we know here in missouri is getting married in Idaho on Saturday evening. So i'm going to pick Sam up and drive back to Idaho (we'll be driving through Boise on our way west) for the wedding. Then we'll be back for the Sunday Junior Tea. Then we'll hang around until Wednesday night/Thursday morning and drive down to California and scatter my dad's ashes one day and visit my great aunt another day and come back Saturday. We'll go to Reformation on Sunday and then leave Sunday afternoon to drive home. I'm trying not to think about all the driving too much. My oldest girl has her permit, so she'll be able to drive some. However, I don't know how much help that will be since I'm supposed to be supervising her driving when she's at the wheel! hopefully we can get together sometime while I'm there.

Deanna, so sorry to here this. People with Autism hate being touched, this must have been very traumatic for him. My nephew has this and to imagine someone wanting to hurt him breaks my heart into millions of tiny pieces.

On the cell phone. People just aren't aware that we have no privacy. When someone hacks into our quiet little world, we feel so invaded. Please tell your daughter I'm thinking of her.
