    Default Did I cross the line?

    I was on one of the public internet sites today and one of the women I am a friend put this up. "Today is Humpty Hump day yeah!!!"
    one of her friends said. "you said hump heh..heh"
    She came back and said. "It must be the camel jockey in me"
    I said. " Or the camel toe in you... I'm sorry I could let that one pass"

    Later in the day the whole thing was taken down. I have no idea if it was because of me. But I had to figure it was. I don't know her very well other than we went to school together and we have alot of mutual friends.

    Did I cross the line? I would hate to think so, but the kind of person I am I don't like making someone feel bad or uncomfortable. Should I apologize?

    no. i subscribe to the "fuck it if they can't take a joke" philosophy.

    I wouldn't have gone there, but I think the whole "camel-toe" thing is gross and pretty crass so I hardly ever even type it, and I don't recall the last time the words have crossed my mind.

    I'm not saying it should be off-limits, it's just not part of my humour vocabulary...now moose knuckle on the other hand

    But anyway, nah, I wouldn't go through the trouble of apologizing. If you weren't the reason they took it down, you'll look retarded and if you WERE the reason it was taken down, you'll look even more retarded...and seriously...who likes retards?
    Stay out of it, dude.

    It's one of those things that if you said it in person it would be funny but written out, yeah, I could understand if thats the reason it was taken down. If you're talking about Facebook you gotta remember a lot of people will see it and she's probably sensitive to that, not so muxh that she was offended. It's not a bad idea to send the girl a quick note.

    that is a good point, a lot of time people's facebooks have a pretty broad mix of people including family, friends, professional contacts etc and references to "camel-toes" may not be appropriate for such mixed audiences.

    I always have to remember that when I comment on a couple of friends' pages because their parents and uber prudish friends are on there and I want to be respectful of that...not that I give a rats ass about their parents or prudish friends, but I care about my friends and don't want their parents or prudish friends giving them guff. Nobody likes guff.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    I agree, probably because she either has family or professional contacts accessing her account ... wouldn't worry about it...I've deleted stuff too at times... no big deal!

    Very true. Now Linda Carters Facebook page photo on the other hand.......


    .........Say what you will. I think it's fair game. Nothing left to the imagination.
    Sorry...trying to lighten the mood. I would'nt worry about it. You can apologize to her, but do it in a casual manner; like a "oh by the way....sorry for the _____ comment". I'm with Broken on this one. Don't make a Federal case over it. You put something out there that can be very easily be misinterpreted. It can just as easily be taken as just a joke. Don't sweat it.

    Maybe how you intended it was not what offended her, but the fact that her pet camel just passed away. Therefore, just seeing the word camel everytime she logged on really upset her. It's ok, you didn't know...

    I'd make sure by posting it again.


    A couple hours later, mention something about poking her in the pooper.

    If only the latter is deleted, you sir have your answer!
