    Okay, these are just terms I coined as I was e-teasing a senior member here. I was wondering if any of you in your childhood and adolescent life (or even at present) been subject to be always always the FIRST ONE TO VOLUNTEER DOING SOMETHING, whether your were willing or were forced to? Well to say that I'm easy would be an understatement now, wouldn't it?
    I hope I make sense here.
    Is it because I'm the kind who's having difficulties saying "NO"?
    Did I do it for popularity?
    Was it a deliberate attempt to separate me from the rest and validate my uniqueness to show the world I'm different?
    Can anyone else identify with this?

    I dont know what caused you to act like that in your past.

    But I can tell you that if you keep using the term "senior member," your future volunteering days are going to be cut short.

    P.S. Muttskins, after perpetrating this...ummm...act of charity for Humanity, I am gonna need a place to lay low til the heat blows over. Do you think I can hang on Malta for a while? ... icon_lol.gif

    Caslon is 4000 years old. You'd think he'd have at least one or two stories to contribute there, Zim. icon_lol.gif

    You wouldn't punch someone as sweet and innocent and charming and NICE as me, Caslon. You'd break your 4000-year-old hand... icon_razz.gif

    And besides, I'd tell ShawnTO on you as soon as he gets back.

    Oh hell yeah! I lied to him; I told him that RJ is blocked here so that he won't even bother to go online and get to read all anticipated bad e-mails about me.
    So look at us now... he doesn't even talk to me. At all.icon_sad.gificon_sad.gificon_cry.gif

    At least my press release in Dubai is that there was one redneck from Texas who was dying to get in my pants and decided to fly here to make it happen.
    All the photos I have of me with him are choreographed...you know, just keeping it reel.icon_twisted.gif
    Well he does have a red neck... called sunburn.

    zimsterIs it because I'm the kind who's having difficulties saying "NO"?


    Hey zim, i can relate. All my life people always take advantage because its hard for me to say no. I was even in the army and when they know that someone always says yes well they always turn to him to do everything. And that someone was me!! I'm trying to change, its horrible being bullied like that and not being able to do what you want and give your opinion.

    Interesting. Do you reckon this is a 'tolerance' defense mechanism? 'Cos it also happens with little things like "taste this first" or something more in my childhood like "go for the injection before me"...

    Well it must be!! Also it probably because we have so much patience! I have noticed that other people pick that up in me and some start bossing me around right up when they meet me! Its overwhelming sometimes. I'm generally a very happy person full of energy and i see that you are too! icon_biggrin.gif I also hate fighting or anything else and feel sorry for people so always in my mind i think, better do it than get in to trouble or a fight. What do u think? Any of this sound familiar about ur character?

    Well, on this site, White = Causasian

    I am not wild about being referred to by a color either, but it is still a common practice.

    No not in the past, but currently I am quite vocal in meetings and in training. Not just because I have something to say, but I feel sorry for the trainers standing at the front trying to get feedback from people that are acting like dead fish!
