How to be a Jerk : My Intro to Poshcoffeeco
I’ve been asked to be someone’s mentor – dear God save us all. Does this person realize just how nuts I am?! Ok, honestly though, and flattery aside, I am so very touched by the request. However, initially I thought it was in jest so I declined the offer. Then I thought more about it and came to the realization of “what a nice thing for someone to say even if it was a joke!”
A few hours after the conversation I signed onto my HubPages account to look and see if I had any comments. Holy Toledo Batman – there were tons! I wondered how I could sneak away from the New Years Eve party long enough to answer them all (which didn’t happen so I will spend New Year’s Day night doing that). And lo and behold there was that question again about being a certain someone’s mentor. Oh no…had I lost an opportunity to help someone like others had helped me in the past? Stupid, stupid, stupid humor is always getting in my way. I think everything is a joke! So I closed out of my HP account and rushed over to this individual’s Facebook page to leave him a message. I explained that I felt like such a jerk turning down the offer and I didn’t really think he was serious earlier in the day – but after reading the comments I realized he indeed wanted to make a connection.

Facebook message me
When I sent the message I noticed a post on this gentleman's Facebook wall that displayed a big golden 50 – oooh shiny! Just a few days before I had read about this guy, his wife and their unending love for one another and I thought maybe this was another sweet hub - a 50th wedding anniversary hub. It didn’t dawn on me that this man doesn’t look 50 let alone old enough to be MARRIED 50 years. I’m simple, what can I say? I saw shiny numbers and all sensible thoughts left through the window. So it turns out this man is celebrating hub number 50 – a very special deal. (I should know since I just wrote my very own 50th hub and I was a huge bragging mess about it.) I read the hub and realized I was mentioned several times in the beginning for helping this author recognize that publishing 50 hubs is a milestone to be celebrated!
Then my Andriod vibrated. I had a reply to the message I sent explaining my ignorance. Mr Poshcoffeeco reassured me that he did not think I acted like a jerk earlier in the day and that he was indeed very serious in his request. We agreed we could BOTH learn a lot from each other and we could look forward to being good hubber-buddies! I was smiling rather huge when I went back to reading his 50th celebration hub. I am ready to watch this friendship blossom into something great. And I owe it all to the man who was man enough to ask for my support. And I am honored to know I will receive his support in return.
