A Moral Dilemma

The Princess has a moral dilemma.

Can I possibly explain how difficult this is for me. I have no morals....or scruples.....or any of those other things.

It's like when I am at yoga and the instructor says "Bring your hands together in front of your heart, for mountain pose." And I think "Where is that?"

So how does a heartless, despotic Princess deal with a moral dilemma?

Above this post is info on bidding on me. Proceeds to Valor-IT. Simple right? Well, I messed up. I did not specify Team Navy. I assssssumed it was clear, but it has been pointed out by a Marine and now an Army guy, that it's not written in the deal.

Oh, I can hear the heartless chuckle from the desert now.

So.......what do I do? If the high bidder donates to the Marine Team or the Army Team, are they still the winner?

Heh... Men bidding on you.

At some point we're going to have a discussion about how that isn't all that healthy, but as one of the potential bidders I think we'll wait for that.

You could make it a total amount, and weight the dollars that go to the Navy, or just straight totals...

So how do we place bids? You have, like, and e-bay auction up or something?

Oh we are, are we?

The rules are that you make your donation directly to Valor-IT. Then send me proof and the person who donated the most to Valor-IT (hopefully the Navy), wins.

We wanted them up at the auction site with the other items, but certain people didn't want to associate the charity with "meet-the-blogger" auctions. They didn't want the liability, you know....should you turn out to be an axe murderer or I turn out the be a perpetrator of sex crimes.

Oh, this is classic. You may not have a heart Maggs, but you do have honor. Ooooh, are you over a barrel on this one. Heeeeee.

Having entered into this contract without specifying I'd say you're honor bound to go to the highest bidder and not only to the highest bidder to Team Navy. Sorry, but that's how I see it.

What's SB say?

BostonMaggie said...

SB wants the Army and the Marines disqualified. He doesn't really care if they are unhappy. You didn't think he would care, did you?

"or I turn out the be a perpetrator of sex crimes."


I should be so lucky. ;)

"Oh we are, are we?"

Merely suggesting that perhaps selling yourself isn't the best way to build self esteem.

I mean, what if the highest amount is $50? That's gotta hurt... :)

And "meet-the-blogger", eh? Is that what you kids are calling it these days?

Holy Moly! Are reading comprehension skills that low in the Army? Anyone reading this blog would clearly see that the last thing anyone needs to worry about is my self esteem.

Yikes! You couldn't dent my ego with a sledgehammer.

LMAO! You're a riot, Maggie.

I can't wait to see how this turns out. :D

FbL said...

He sounds like your type, Maggie. ;) But alas, he is not Navy and thus ineligible for the rotation. :D


BostonMaggie said...

FbL - The Rotation is not restricted to the Navy. It's not even restricted to the military. however, it is like the civil service exam....it gives you a leg up. Besides - AWG hasn't expressed an interest in applying for a position in the Rotation.

Angry White Guy said...

Now would I do so publicly on the internet, of even via email (mainly because I get this feeling she'd post it, and mock me, and that would make me teh sad).

Such a thing is best done privately, face to face.


Sorry, was that a little serious? My bad.

And I'm sure your ego is quite healthy. Merely trying to be supportive. My bad. :)

BostonMaggie said...

Ahhhh..........Princess Crabby is not for the faint of heart.

You must be bold!

Stab, Stab, Look, Stab, Stab!

Angry White Guy said...

Not a matter of being "bold", simply a matter of "I wasn't raised to make it such a spectical".

"Stab, Stab, Look, Stab, Stab!"


It's "Stab and twist, stab and twist".

If you wish me to attempt to purchase your love, I shall require you to know these things.


I think I'll start running for my life now.
