Default apology for post

I posted something recently and some wording I used resulted in quite the backlash about who I might be, my skills and knowledge and people were informed to not respond to my post. The ones that did were mainly jokes or comical suggestions.
I take responsibility for any words I used that conveyed a lack of knowledge but didn't expect the virtual abuse I received.
I was going to clarify a few things regarding who I was and better clarify the issue but the post was closed when I checked it today.
So, I am first apologizing to anyone who may have been frustrated with my post.
Secondly, to clear up who I am...I am an apprentice and will remain so as I work FT in a different job outside the electrical trade. Maybe I should not be a member of this forum.
I gained apprentice grade 15yrs ago when working FT for an electrical contractor and have attempted to maintain that and will get calls from old bosses to help out on jobs occasionally. Fully admit to still learning and not being close to an expert.
At any rate, wanted to apologize for causing turmoil I will return to read only mode. don't have the skin for online abuse.
kindly,
Fwilljr

You were doing something that you’re not supposed to be doing. What you were doing causes all of us not only aggravation, but often money.

What was said to you in that thread was pretty tame, much less than you would receive on a typical job site. Maybe you’re better off working at a nail salon? Or someplace with an HR manager to cry to?

A legitimate GC would have asked a qualified electrical contractor to make a site visit. That is the lesson to be learned here.

Thanks for the apology, but I am still frustrated over your first post.
I haven't been sleeping well since, and considering therapy.


I'm not sure if I'll get over this one or not

If you were a real Canadian you would have apologized for accepting his apology.
I’m on to you.

The only thing that an apprentice should be assessing is whether or not there’s enough cream and sugar in splatz’s coffee.
