Karma's a bitch isn't it?

All hail the Karma gods!! I love the fact that they go to work so promptly!! They are the reason that bad thing happen to not so good people, and while I know that I am not immune to their powers, I take great comfort in the fact that they are out there exacting their abstract and random repayment. A broken car, a speeding ticket, a bad turn in fortune. All are the work of the Karma gods. I feel so satisfied! :oD

Thank you.......

Did you want to go to Vanuatu, right?

You wouldn't abuse your power! Why risk incurring the further wrath of the gods? You wouldn't want to lose another laptop.

It was not vicious. I was unrelated to the comment above it.
In fact when at the end of the day the selection team was culling candidates, I added good words for you in the face of 3 negatives, if you want to know.

Wow... 3 whole negatives! You shouldn't do me any favours.

You know you are right. I should have shut up completely and let them not recommend you for project.

Don't try and make it sound like I owe you something. Because I don't. Whatever you said you said for your reasons. It doesn't change the fact that you go out of your way to push my buttons and upset me.

And how dare you try to use the fact that you were involved in the selection process against me. I am not going to play the "I know something you don't know" game with you. Do you realise that dropping little hints like that and trying to use that information as leverage is classified as emotional abuse? I watched my father do it to my mother for years. Don't think I'm going to take it from you.

This "friendship", or whatever it is, is amazingly unhealthy. Either we sit down and fight it out and try to fix things or I'm walking away. I'm sick of fighting with you.

I wasn't doing that. The written form does not allow for me to convey context.

The fact was that the people who interviewed you. Felt you presented in a very business like manner, not what they are looking for. And the fact tendancy for you to correct during the sceanrios stage was also noted by several of the selection staff as being a potential issue when on project. The wanted to recommend you for India or the AVI projects only.
I put forward that I know you and can recommend you highly as suitable for all projects, especially Vanuatu, which you had mentioned you wanted to go on.
That is all quite simple as that. No emtional blackmail or any bullshit like that. I put forward your recommendation because you wanted to go on project, the fact you bring something to it and the fact you need to go on project to learn a few things as well.

As for the next step, your call.

You seem to spend a lot of time being misconstrued.

No, the next step is your call. You need to decide what my friendship is worth to you and whether or not you are prepared to fix what's broken. If you're prepared to come to the party then we can sit down and try to draw up a truce. If not, then it's the end of an era.

I have made my position clear. The only thing I want is to stop fighting, one way or another. It's time for you to clarify yours.
