"this sucks" [Jul. 19th, 2003|02:44 am]
I have, unfortunately, been put in a position where I must defend myself publicly.

My roommate has decided to make a post to a community of people who are a) friends of mine, b) acquaintances I would like to get to know better, c) friends of friends, and d) strangers. In this post she has very hatefully misrepresented me and told untruths about a certain situation. If she had been upright in her story telling I highly doubt she would have had the need to exclude my boyfriend and myself from the audience.
I'm guessing it was really a cross between her flair for drama, bad communication skills, and being upset about something else in her private life that may or may not have hinged upon these circumstances.
Anyone that knows me knows that I would not fuck my roommates over or anyone else.
That was malicious, hateful, catty, unsisterly, and basically uncalled for.

I think that I deserve a big fat apology.

I hope you'll take the opportunity, then, to discuss this pro-actively and calmly with the roommate who misrepresented you. I can't think of a more desirable outcome than you two coming to an understanding.

Trying these issues in front of the court of the public seldom works for that, although I understand and am sympathetic to the idea of being distressed because one has been misrepresented in front of others. But I'd counsel you to deal with the problem at the root (where it got started) rather than at the flower.

Thanks for your input Content. I agree with you entirely and have spent the night and the better part of this morning coming to a decision about posting publicly. It was not done in the spirit of retaliation as much as in a spirit of damage control.
I definitely plan on addressing it at the next opportunity.

I understand the attempt at damage control and think it makes sense. It deals with one end of the problem, and it sounds like you are working your way to dealing with the other end of the problem. Good luck. I'm betting y'all can work this out.
