I was talking with a friend one night having had a bad day at work. It was just one of those days where you're the bug and not the windshield. But, as GL, those days can be magnified when you log in and someone has this problem and someone has that problem and you have to deal with minor drama and all the little things that go into running a guild. I was feeling low. So, I'm trying to help raise the confidence of a newly 85 dps who has added a tank spec. He offers to tank and we wind up in Stonecore. Things aren't going real well and the guy keeps saying "You guys should get a real tank." He knows Stonecore as dps but not as tank and we are nothing if not patient with guild members who want to learn a role. But, given the kind of day I've had, I really don't want to wipe again and again and again on the worm, but I don't want to shatter my new tank's confidence. Suddenly, every guild member online whispers me, "Gimm, you're so awesome and I love being in this guild." Um... Someone finally asks, "Do you know a toon by the name of x? He told all of us to tell you we love you." I really did need that. We went on to clear the instance and get the guy the confidence he needed to work on tanking. That night, I went to Stormwind's cheese shop and bought 50 pieces of cheese. I then sent them to him one piece at a time to thank him for the cheesy comments. In case you don't know, 50 is the maximum number the mailbox will display shoving everything else aside until you empty the box. I found out from the guy's brother that when he logged on the next day and opened his mailbox he just laughed and laughed. Two weeks later, I log on and he's filled my mailbox with bananas and the tag line "I think I've gone bananas." My guild has pulled the cheese thing on a guild member who is a cheese lover. For his birthday, we filled his mailbox with cheese. I like the mage portal on top of portal roulette. I remember being sent several places I didn't intend because I clicked on the "wrong" portal.
