    Exactly. I've met people that think that it is a virtue to blurt out whatever comes into their minds. Excuse me, but I've never thought that needlessly hurting someone's feelings was a virtue.

    Yes... I have come across a number of people who find it convenient to claim "I'm honest and just tell it like it is" as a way to be an ass and not be responsible for what comes out of their mouths. Others, I've seen attempt to use their intellect to be "openly" passive aggressive. Either way, it's a selfish choice, and one I try not to let go unchallenged.

    Yea, that's one of my biggest pet peeves. It's like, "who are you?" Now if I ask for someone's opinion or if I truly am way out of line, that's a little different maybe. But you're right, it's like a free-pass to just be a jerk. Not cool. Have some manners. Passive aggressive doesn't bother me I guess because, well, it just doesn't. I don't feel as threatened or attacked maybe? But the "openly", I know what you mean. The condescending, talk down to you, rhetorical questions type...Very annoying.

    @CLewey44 Sounds like his label should read, "Instant A-hole, just add alcohol." I doubt you're the only one to notice his behaviour and hopefully either growth or change will come soon.

    Where the people that voted members of that lodge that just had not been there in a while? The south is the law so with this deff. for the JW: "To prefer charges against a Mason guilty of un-Masonic conduct and present such charges to the Master of the Lodge." If you are still in the south I would present the un-mason like conduct of the Master as if it was not him then at the end of the charges say his name. I am a Mason to do good but if I am ever put in the situation you are in I would fall on my sward for the good of the fraternity.
