Keep Calm and Carry on


Its time to add some humour to the situation.  

Americans…humour has a U because guess what?  We all laugh at U!  Geddit?
(watches as both of his regular readers leave)…….

Ok, I’m not going to get into cultural debates on spelling that would be wrong.  It would be wrong because…….well lets just say what is the name of the language? English?  There you go.  Debate over.
Shit, that wasn’t the point of this entry.  I am not anti American in anyway.  In the slightest.  I’m going to stop digging now.
I am dealing with a sexual harassment case.  Its bad…..its really bad.  In fact its criminal.  The Police are coming tomorrow.  It involves written correspondence which I have been reviewing this evening with a glass of wine.  Thats not being flippant, its necessary to get through it.
I’ve dealt with a lot of shit in this arena over the years.  More than anyone should have to.
I have been through three cases of alleged paedophelia.
I have dealt with four alleged rapes
I have dealt with numerous internet porn issues (including the first dismissal in the UK…I believe) and violent porn images
I can’t count the number of sexual harassment cases I have dealt with.  From innuendo to physical intimidation
And laughter is the coping strategy for dealing with this.  Its not a funny subject don’t get me wrong.  I am not taking any of this lightly or suggesting that it is humourous in any shape or form.
But tonight I am going to laugh and make merry……tomorrow I’ll deal with other people’s nasty reality and I won’t let it touch my beautiful dream.

    I've packed my bags based on the humour "joke", but am staying around this time, mostly because with this situation you do indeed need some laughter.

    I'm going to stick around, but only because you spell "humour" it the same way as I do..

    Humour in these type of situations is not inappropriate…sometimes it's the only way to be able to cope. The altnerative will likely do more damage.

    Bonne chance.
