hi mylotters have you ever made a discussion and found out later that you wished you had not made it? I feel as if I owe everyone an apology. My discussion about making payoff a nd getting an extra twenty dollars turned out that the twenty was from a survey that I had done ages back and never expected to get paid for, it was not from a fellow mylotter .Now I feel really stupid and like I owe everyone an apology. What is your take? Sorryfor being such an idiot.I found out because I was worried about hacking so followed the name and found out she was the administrator to a survey that I had done earlier. this survey had my paypal account as that was how they paid.

I wouldn't worry about it. It is nice to see honesty though. I thinkk that is always the best policy. Just be glad that you were paid from the survey. I have no experiece with any of this making money and clcking for that. I am really here just for fun. Do people actually mke decent money on this stuff. I first heard of this place last week. I have found a lot of fun discussions here and thought...I am home and on the computer, why not chat...Thanks again

Apologies are not necessary. Everyone makes a mistake now and then. I love when I get "surprise" money, like when you put on a coat that you have not worn in a while and find money in the pocket. LOL

You know, you really gave us all a compliment, though, as you believed in our innate generosity. I am glad that the twenty dollars is there for you when you need it, regardless of where it came from. Thanks for believing in us and our goodness.

No apology necessary. If you hadn't told us, we'd have all been happy for us, just never knowing who the kind person was. And, I'm sure we're happy for you anyway since it was STILL unexpected money at a badly needed time. No problems at all! You're not the kind to trick us and I think we know that.

Awww, none of us are perfect. We all make mistakes. That just points - again - to the fact that we should be able to edit and delete our own posts. Cool that you got some extra money.

I have time which I wish I could delete the discussion I just sent out. Why there's no delete feature in Mylot? Since I couldn't do anything after I posted, then I can only just let it be. :)

I don't see any need for apologies here, Hatley Your discussion was very nice and did get lots of replies and now we know that you didn't get the money from a fellow mylotter, the discussion still stands on its own merits

Apologies accepted :) Hatley don't take life so seriously. Everyone can do a mistake in life. WE are not perfect. Although my wife says that I think that I am! But that is another story!

Hi Hatley, You shouldn't feel silly or stupid at all it's a honest mistake and all I think is it shows what a honest character you are because if you hadn't of started this discussion we would of been none the wiser, so don't worry I found it rather amusing...

dear Hatley! you don't need to apologize, we always do mistake no matter it's size or how it has manifested it. we are all humans and we learn from our mistakes, i've posted many questions that now i see them as a sing pointing to me and saying "ATTENTION! IDIOT AT 12 o'clock" but I don't care about it, I was wrong and i accept it, maybe some people will get it wrong but I know they will understand because we all do mistakes. As my mother always says "the deed is comsumed(done)", she alywas says that what has happened has happen just go on and don't waste your time thinking about what you have done in the past, what's in front of you matters. She even today tells me this and she is so right. So What's done is done, you don't need to apologize, if you feel sorry about it than you already apologized now stand up and continue the road. As you can see we all do the same, so go forward my friend you may do some other mistakes in the future but these mistakes help you make two steps forward than one. All happens with a reason and stuffs happen, despite their meaning. What has past doesn't matter anymore now the present and future counts.

I heard from a movie (maybe you know it):" what's done is history what will be is a mystery but what is today is a gift...that's why it's called present!" I'm sure you know this line but i must admit it's really impressing and so true.

Any money, from any source is welcome! That's my view. Whether it's a gift or survey, it's still your money to enjoy. It's still the same blessing it was before you knew who it was from and your friends here at Mylot are happy that you have it! Best wishes, Enjoy your weekend.

Hatley, no need to apologize for making a mistake. It was an honest one and it happens to us all. Usually many times during our lives! The point is, you are in possession of extra money that you need, and in that sense you are still blessed. I know, I've gotten less than that in the mail before and was really grateful to get it! It seems it usually comes at a time when we really need it. You are a dear and don't let any of the negative comments you received change anything. You didn't do anything wrong. Wishing you many more blessings!
