Adventurers in rpg misunderstanding
Talk about hilarious. While surfing a role-playing game (rpg) forum, I came across a post of a gamemaster (GM) who was having a problem with one of his players. Seems said player constantly contacted him about the next game and the GM wanted advice on how to make the guy stop.
Finding the post amusing, I sent a copy to my GM with the addition (in so many words), "Alright already about the next game. I'll stop contacting you. I just wish you had spoken earlier w/o posting for everyone to see." I knew it was my not GM since the original poster was out of state. I added a "smiley" symbol to notify him I was kidding.
I received a message from my GM the next day. He wanted me to call and discuss the matter, profusely apologizing that he had somehow offended me. I realized he had not fully read the message or the link and quickly called him. After an exchange of greetings, I told him the message had been a joke. After several exchanges, we finally clarified that he had had (in his words) a "blond moment" and, as I suspected, not read the message or link or even misinterpreted the smile symbol.
No more jokes on-line.
Carpe Diem (seize the day)
