She was really talking in the forum jargon big time, and I don't know but something in me sort of snapped and I told her to stop talking like that, that it's annoying and impolite to talk in a language that another doesn't understand. She got indigant, and once again cited where during the forum somebody had expressed a similar sentiment, and of course she said to me about him, "we all hated them and the coach yelled at them." Well, I stood my ground. She got less and less communicative, and then she abruptly hung up. It's been two years since we've communicated--
Doesn't sound like Karmal "snapped" and went nuts. It's clearly stated something inside snapped - Karmal got sick of hearing the tape recorded jargon and was being "authentic" in asking her to stop. If anythng, he was a little too patient. Her response to being asked to stop evangelizing was that "we all hated them and the coach yelled at them", them being the people who simply wanted them to lose the jargon. Yeah - hatred is a good tool to have in your self-improvement belt.
Landmark sent me an email advertising their new dating, roommate and job service. I think it's a great idea. They can all preach to the converted and have a great time.
