My real world job is working with at-risk youth. This is the politically correct way of saying lil gangstas . Juvenile delinquents. I spend most days arguing with the kids, the police and probation officers, teachers, school principals, social workers, parents, grandparents, clergy.....
I come to wikitree to recharge. To relax . To keep my brain from going to mush. I don't worry about big contrib numbers and monthly badges. I like the work.
I usually work on profiles for the projects I belong to . When I start on a line, I usually put a note in the comments on the profile and wait . Sometimes a manager will send me a note "Shoo, Eddie, go away" and I do. No problem.
Last week, someone ( not a new member, ) filed an MIR because ...?? He never told me beforehand to go away. Never indicated in any way that he had a problem with me. When I asked why,
Because says he, I don't know how to do things and I "needed a nudge in the right direction."
After taking counsel with my posse, which includes an Orthodox Jewish rabbi and a Methodist minister as well as wikitree friends, I forgive.
So that this doesn't happen again, I will NEVER AGAIN work on any profiles other than my own. I am content to help crack brick walls for those who ask. Just send me a note.
I love Wikitree and I'm grateful for the friends and support I've found here.
Too bad this happened.
