Making an Error
November 22, 2011 10:46am CST
I recently sent out an email for an event I was planning. I wasn't careful on the contacts I added. It went out to everyone in my list. No harm no fowl. I got one nasty response back from someone who is not my friend anymore asking why did I send it to them. I apologized for this error. I had thought we had called a truce and that all the negative stuff was put behind us. I thought this person had changed only to find out that the bitterness is still there. I thought to myself "WOW" why not just delete this and carry on with your day. Why would they respond so rudely? It was easy to tell the attitude and feel the hate from those few little words!

Personally many times people tend to have a hard time getting over something, and for some reason they continue to harvest Bad feelings and grudges. It could have been because they were jealous that you were doing this event, even though you accidently invited them, or really just wanting to be spiteful due to the way they felt they have been treated. Personally I just consider it water under the bridge and move on. People like that are Best left alone.

hello there my friend.there are really people who react differently to those kind of situations and reacting rudely from a friendly invitation from a former friend is not an exemption.as for you my friend, do not lose your cool.do not stoop down to his or her level.just be civil about it.

Don't let those kind of people ruin your day honey. If you think they aren't worth it, just apologize and ignore other thing they will tell you. If you have issues in the past and he still can't move on, probably that person will not be able to move on for the rest of his/her life.

That sort of person did not ruin my day thank goodness. It was an error and that's that. She responded, wanting the drama to continue and I ignored it. Deleted the email and moved on. One day when and if she is ever truly happy she won't be the bitter person she is today :)

Wow, rude response. He may be not your friend anymore but it isn't right to say something to you like that, just ignore.... He may have grudges against you, if you respond, that means he got your attention, so he may trashtalk to you and the relationship between you and him gets worse, you might not become friends again anymore.

We are not friends anymore. I thought we could reach a point of being civil but that won't happen on her part. I live my life with being positive and not living in the past. They hold a grudge because they are unhappy. I can't change that. I can only change myself and be the better person.

Nobody will know why some people respond so rudely. Probably because they are mad at themselves and it's way easier to scold at someone else. Be happy you know what kind of person this is, that it's good for you not to have contact, that you don't need to have doubts about that anymore. Don't waste your good energy on a person like that. We all are able to send an email to the wrong person(s) by mistake. It's normal and there is nothing more you could have done. This respond says way more about that person as it says about you.
