something I heard on the radio one day. Loosely paraphrased, ask a man to say 10 things negative and he will have 20 easily, ask him to say 10 things positive and he will have great difficulty.
I think somehow it is in our nature to be suspicious or maybe we become hardened with time.
Glad to hear things are not what they seemed and also glad that Ian replied so quickly to set things straight.
As a side note , you can not please all of the people all of the time.
Relax and enjoy
