Goes to show the problems that arise when you can't hear tone of voice. I don't know how one gets around that one, because I have sometimes been irritated by the way people phrase their replies - and have probably irritated other people, too! How does one avoid sounding condescending without constantly apologising for oneself? I cringe at some of the things I have written and today, I narrowly stopped myself from giving someone a heavy put down because I thought their response was condescending and silly. Doesn't happen often, though!!! People are nice here.
Anyway - I like bags but would really like to use paper ones if they weren't so expensive.
