Happy Mail and Its Purpose

Someone told me recently that my sole reasonfor sending reams of Happy Mail over the yearswas because I wanted to receive comments about how kind I am.That, apparently, I "only do things that give gratification."Wow, don't hold back, why don't you tell me what you really think?(I'm putting their comments down to a bad day. … Continue reading Happy Mail and Its Purpose

Memos: Mail: Me
