When You Discover That You Don’t Deserve Your Crew…


I’m an online gamer…recently a portion of the team I am a part of decided to merge with another team. This merge was to be mutually beneficial. A Month in and it’s proving not the case.

I question everything…and I mean…EVERYTHING…everyone who has ever played a game with me knows I question everything. My previous team leaders have always taken it in stride. This team however…leadership expects blind obedience…if a player has a question they are not to post it on the main forum, instead they want separated side chats for clarification. Why not post it to the main forum…what if other people have the same damn question????

Amateur Hour…

So today I question a contest and took myself out of the contest. Leadership went absolutely bat shit. I mean ABSOLUTELY and COMPLETELY BAT SHIT. I got reprimanded not only in Leadership Chat by two of the leadership team…but also individually by the same two people in the leadership team…can we say OVERKILL?

So I elected to withdraw from the conversations as they were. I learned then how awesome my crew is…and how much I really don’t deserve them…but I am so happy to be a part of them. They went toe to toe with those in Leadership who went after me in the forums. No Holds Barred. They also went toe to toe with the remaining membership on my behalf.

I truly do not deserve my crew…but I am so very grateful to have them.

Ma Famille…what is it really?


Family…or as I call it Ma Famille

Tis the time of year that makes one think of family and what it truly means…

Family can be the bonds of blood…for those lucky enough to have a close knit family.

Family can be the bonds of something else…experience, shared interests or happy accidents.

a few Ma Famille’s I am blessed to have…

My wrestling boys – Craig, Paul, Chris, Oney, G-Rod, Ant, Carnage, HeelMahoney, Tom C, AcidBurn and BeardofTsu; love you to the moon and back.

My mentors…Peter, Jason, Dom, Bobby, Hank and the Banker. Thank you for your unending and unconditional support

My gaming crews of We Do Geek, Country Dragon Slayer, and The Guardians. Thank you for the laughs.
