How do you play pickleball?
Do we need a lot of space?
Can it be played in wheelchairs or from a hospital bed?
Google is your friend.
Question: What has six balls and likes to be paddled?
I don’t know but I’m pretty sure she’s just talking to herself here lately…
That was an open question to anyone. But I figured you would come up with some kind of snarky answer.
Who are you exactly are you calling a “she?”
Reception is bit dodgy inside. Sometimes some applications work better than the browser apps.
We might just try getting a set to “hit” the little wiffle-looking balls around.
Thanks. It won’t be an official Pickleball game.
You must remember to be politically correct, or is that woke? I get them confused.
I’m just noticing remarkable parallels with a mutual acquaintance of ours.
Well, glad to hear you have an acquaintance to talk to.
I needed to add this:
Ya know, no harm done. Back atcha Kat!
Neither one of us wants to be snarky.
We were just exhausted.
Sometimes it is easier to ask.
We were being lazy.
We should have waited until one of us went outside.
There is no reason to be short or snarky here in the forums.
Neither one of us are easily offended.
We don’t really place too much on the politically correctness or “wokeness.” Too many possibilities for hurt feelings. Too many stressors.
Civility doesn’t cost you a penny, but it is still very much priceless.
We will endeavor to be more civil in the future.
Unless one of us is too exhausted to care…
There are two of you?
We take turns when we are at the VA.
One of us will take a break and leave the hospital unit or ward. Then that person will do some research about stuff we think we need and come back with snapshots for us to look at and decide which items we need to get.
Woot is one of the sites we check for it’s sales. It is a bonus to read the forums. We love sharing some of the funnier things we read in here to the vets stuck in hospital. Sometimes they want to contribute or ask a question, and we help them do that. We share the responses as we get them. Sometimes the VA staff gets in on the action. As a result some of them have opened accounts on Woot.
It is much easier when there are two of us when we bring a veteran’s pet to the VA for a visit. One of us goes in and gets the vet while the other waits outside with the pet.
We would never leave the pet in the vehicle alone. It would be impossible to do it alone.
It also helps when it has been an incredible tasking day. Everyone needs a good support system.
One of us started this account, and then the two of us started using it to look for stuff for the vets. It is easier this way. We don’t accidentally order the same things. That would be a waste of resources, especially time and money.
It works for us.
We noticed you metion money quite a bit, so we’re sure that’s top-of-mind.
Of course, finances are on a lot of people’s minds, especially with the feds raising the interest rates 0.25%.
Prices have gone up on practically everything.
We try to maximize how we can help with what we have. We also strive for quality over quantity.
We have a list, and some times “new” or “needed” items are move to the top of the list like hypoallergenic laundry soap, new cotton socks, and better hoodies for cancer patients with port-a-caths. Other items that are considered slightly more on the “want” side like the Ninja Creami machine have to be move lower on the list when others are more urgent. At that point, we make do with a nurse’s blender. And the veterans are completely sensitive to that.
We try to do the best we can for those who cannot.
We have found the Woot forums mostly helpful when looking for information on items we need or think we need.
Sometimes the discussions in the forum really help us make the decision on which item to purchase or which size to order.
Other times we will share what we have learned while helping our friends and family. It might help someone else navigate a situation they encounter in the future. Although we don’t wish that on anyone, the statistics are pretty clear we all will encounter someone with a disease such as cancer, ALS, or something just as sinister.
We find most Wooters generous and respectful in their responses and conversations, and we truly are appreciative and thankful.
We could do without those who come in here to dress Wooters down for asking a question or for responding to another Wooter…especially when it appears to be purely for sadistic purposes.
We find your team approach to be most interesting and surely efficient in mining the fertile and generous ground of the Woot forums.
We seem to detect a bit of bristles in your collective responses, surely csused by your tireless and selfless work you mention with regularity.
Certainly, the Woot community is, in fact, very generous as you have discovered.
