Thank you.
ect...............

People who reply to each post individually as if this is their private forum.
I'm not sure if the "Thanks" link is the right approach.

But I hear ya. One day I had 32 email notifications about one person posting that kind of message.

I don't use the "Thanks" button. I like to say my thanks in public, and do it in my next post.

People love being complimented on their dishes. It makes them feel good.

If only I were. I have several meds that are PRN. All total, I have 24 medicines that are on my list. When printed out, it takes 2.5 pages of 8.5 x 11 inch paper.

And when thanked in public, it is something the recipient secretly enjoys. It is nice to get public acclaim for ones accomplishments.

I use the "thanks" button, but not for a simple "thank you". I do those publicly. I use the button when I have something I want to say that doesn't warrant a whole Private Message, but I don't want the world to see. And I use it quite regularly.

Hey now all, this is about petty vents. We don't all have to agree with the vent, but everyone should get to say what bugs them.

What bugs me one day might be meaningless the next.

I tend to use the Thanks button much the same way LP does. I don't necessarily want to send a full PM, but to just acknowledge the post in some way. Sometimes I'd rather not declare things publicly either.

My own petty little vent for the day is my bird feeder. I just filled it and there is a broken bit on the top where the lid latches on. If I don't latch it EXACTLY right, it falls open dumping birdseed everywhere. Well, I guess I didn't have enough coffee this morning cuz I didn't latch it and the blue jays knocked that sucker flying. BAH!

My other vent is I found out what was munching my tomatoes. A mouse. Bold little bugger was on the wall of the house in plain view of all of us! Well, the traps are now out and I have the noise things out too. Hope that works. I'm sick of finding half eaten tomatoes on the vine!
