The SHOPO is furious over the reassignment of its president to Waikiki midnight patrol, effectively demoting him.
This person, Tenari Ma’afala, is a social conservative and member of the New Hope Christian Fellowship. He also said (in the words of @KyokiKafuka ) he wished to "be killed to prevent [same sex marriage] from being put into law...in 2013."
This man is everything wrong with toxic police culture all at once; I welcome this reassignment!
The icing on the cake for a terrible day is to get your FSA to approve your transaction for your cavity filling by having another document scanned and sent hoping they'll finally give it the green light. Ugh!
Well, the response has been positive, including from those who said problematic things earlier. Apologies came in, people were remarkably bolstering...and I feel as if I truly have made the right decision about where I hang my proverbial hat. :'3 <3
I've spent my whole life going from place to place, often having people backstab, abuse and take advantage of me along the way due to my earnest personality. It is refreshing to see a community like this...
I'm staying. <3
@ayachan I apologize. I just jumped into the conversation but didn’t give enough attention to what you’d actually written, and I’m very sorry about that. In hindsight, I was very oblivious. I definitely did not mean to make you feel anxious or pressured or anything like that. I used to hate it when this sort of thing happened to me, so it’s a total *facepalm* realizing I’ve done it to someone else. I apologize.
I felt absolutely terrible about telling a very, very close friend friend of mine giving loving, well-intentioned advice...only to have it go to shit by just parroting what a family member said to and getting just as irritated as I was. I cried afterward. I’m so,so sorry. I love her so much. 😢
@ayachan ...I've lost track....what number am I on....
4) Neither you, nor your opinions are stupid, & I certainly didn't mean to cause you harm/anxiety by expressing my own opinions - I tend to "join in" on conversations that sometimes would be better served without my opinions.
5) I am genuinely sorry.
