Advice: Meaning Of “Fit To Be Tied” & Impact Of “Let’s Be Friends”

Hello Everyone!

What’s is happening for you on your side of the globe on this summer Wednesday afternoon?? Thankfully, it is cooler and less humid compared to last week. This weather report is courtesy of your favorite NYC construction chick! 🙂 Before we get into the details of this blog post, I shall share with you my first children’s book that’s entitled, “Not All Girls Play With Dolls” that is available in e-book, paperback, and hardcover on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iTunes. Additionally, I’m also sharing my first adult e-book entitled, “Construction Tales: Volume I: A Woman’s Journey To Become An Electrician”. I have risen yet another day with the ability to share with you another double dose of my custom crafted advice. For your first mental course, the subject is on the origin of the phrase, “fit to be tied”. Prior to writing this response, I never really thought to look up the origin. I was humored as to the origin. I will let you read the response and not speak further on that one. For my second question and answer, the topic is on either the negative or positive impact of stating “let’s be friends”. I totally believe that, no matter how awkward the conversation, you need to have that discussion when you first experience the unwanted advances. Letting the intensity build for a relationship that you don’t vibe with will make the aftermath fall on your shoulders. Yes, you are minding your own business. Yes, this person is imposing their will and intentions on you. However, by being totally mute on the advances, you are allowing the feelings to build with an increasing intensity each day. If they continue to build past the moment where you express your lack of interest, you indeed did your part by stating your position. If they ignore your wishes, then you need to put distance between you two or get the police/court involved. Over the years, I have dealt with a few unwanted advances at work. I was always super clear about my feelings from the moment I detected the unwanted advances. Additionally, I was cautious about their feelings moving forward as well. I have no intention of taking a “dirt nap” because I didn’t have the courage to speak up. Have you experienced unrequited love? If so, how did you react? How did they react to the revelation? Go ahead and drop your input right down the in comment section below. Then continue reading even further on my blog topics down below:

POSED QUESTION #1:

“What is the origin of the phrase “fit to be tied”?”

By Carlene Webb

MY RESPONSE #1:

“Over the years, I have heard this phrase being used periodically by different types of folks from all walks of life. According to my internet sources, this phrase first appeared back in the early 1800′s. The phrase, “fit to be tied” alludes to the practice of tying up uncontrollable mental patients. Back in the day, society was not as kind towards mental patients. They were considered to be the scourge of society. Many prominent families, including the Kennedys, would lock away any family members that were not considered to be of a sound mind. This practice of tying up mental patients with rope or cloth gave way to the use of the straitjacket. The straitjacket was invented over in France back in 1790. This phrase is an indicator of a person’s mental status. If the person is not of a sound mind, they are fit to be tied up. I can’t imagine being tied up and medicated within some padded walls. God bless anyone who must endure that form of treatment. May you have much success along your life path that doesn’t involve the confines of a mental health facility. #ConstructionTales #NotAllGirlsPlayWithDolls #VerballyDisastrous”

POSED QUESTION #2:

“How negatively or positively can the phrase let’s just be friends affect an individual’s life?”

By Marc Bloemers

THE RESPONSE #2:

“That positive or negative impact hinges on each party’s investment towards each other. This investment totally relies on the perception of the relationship in the eyes of each party. If a person feels deeply connected to the other person who wants to just be friends, the deeply connected person will be negatively impacted once they face reality. The party who doesn’t want a deep connection will be relieved to take the pressure off of the relationship during the friendship revelation. Therefore, that same person will be positively impacted by shifting the relationship dynamics to a “just friends” status. Hopefully, the person wanting the deep connection doesn’t go off on the deep end of the mental pool as a result of facing rejection. If the rejected person reacts poorly out of anger and frustration, this can cause physical and/or mental anguish for the rejected party. This response and reaction would hold a negative impact for both parties. In extreme cases, the rejected party can murder their love interest. This is why it’s very important for a person to be extremely transparent with their feelings with a potential love interest. It’s an uncomfortable conversation that needs to be had as soon as possible. As soon as you see the unwanted advances, it is time to meet up and softly reject the other party. It is better to power through an awkward conversation as opposed to allowing the person to develop intense feelings that are not reciprocated. In some cases, the person will not take “no” for an answer. This is when it’s reasonable to get the police and the court involved. Hopefully, the intervention by authorities will force the extreme party to die down with their intensity. Never play with a person’s emotions since that can yield such disastrous results! May you have good luck along your path and not cross paths with a psycho love interest. #ConstructionTales #NotAllGirlsPlayWithDolls #VerballyDisastrous”

I recently shared my latest short story that has been loaded up to my Construction Tales-Told By A Woman Kindle Vella Library on Amazon. This is short story #11 entitled, “Juggling Motherhood & Working With The Tools”. This short story covers my life as a widowed, single mother in the era when I juggled both motherhood and my career as a journeywoman electrician. I share the various challenges I faced and lessons learned along the way. The previous short story is entitled: #10: “Early Life Lessons & Characters To Meet As An Apprentice”. I decided to write about some life lessons such as guarding your personal information, managing nasty rumors, combating sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism. Overall, the construction culture has improved dramatically over the past 25-years. Developing both a thick skin and a sharp tongue are key tools needed to survive various jobsite antics. I hope you learn something from this short story. There are more to come. These short stories are now also available as Verbally Disastrous podcast episodes.
