In the words of John Fawlty,  "Typical,  just typical. You....."

 

I'm almost willing to pay for Britbox just to watch those too few episodes again.

Why should people on a suicide prevention forum be expected to know anything about railroads??

I'm missing something.

 

 

I think it is a mild jibe at the discussion of mental health intervention as being off-topic on a forum about trains.

I see. That must be it.

Thanks, Paul, for the polite and informative reply.

Unlike the guy who chose to insult me, and did not answer the question. You know, the guy who's always complaining about others' behavior here.

I was staying out of this, in part because I'm enjoying the evolution of the suicide humor but 'shouldn't' because the underlying subject is so serious.  In particular, Paul's extending the discussion to GE suicide in tunnels was brilliant.

But how can anyone mistake a Fawlty Towers reference for anything but ongoing humor? Are we all too serious sometimes when we are the besservissern on the pointy end of the commentary ... or think we perceive we are?

Nobody, including myself in there,  was insulting you.  Sorry if the Fawlty Towers quote was a bit too esoteric.

CH, you were clearly implying that my being confused about something is typical.

You quoted me, then wrote that. If that was not the point, what was? In what way does your post relate to what I had written?

A) Staying staying out of it would have been an excellent idea.

B) I didn't/don't watch Fawlty Towers.

Jeez.  I really wasn't replying to your bewilderment  per se. I was responding to the bizarre, tangential thread shift off the topic, which you had correctly noted. 

The thread shift is what is typical,  from serious to silly, especially when some folks feel uncomfortable.

Okay. Perhaps I misunderstood. My apologies, if I can take you at your word.

But I was not commenting on thread-drift. Not realizing the poster was being facetious, I was asking specifically about his post; that's all.

A) Staying staying out of it would have been an excellent idea. B) I didn't/don't watch Fawlty Towers.

(B) explains (A).  He was quoting a line from a John Cleese character.  It was not intended to be serious.  You took it too seriously. Waaay too seriously, in my opinion.  Hence my not staying stayed out of it.  

Since that misunderstanding was behind my posting in the first place, I will get back to staying out of it, except I think you can take him at his word in this case, no further digs required.

No, I did not overreact. I was apparently mistaken about what was going on. But in the context of what I perceived him to be saying (about me), my response was not an overeaction.

I plead guilty to a mistake. I might as well give Charlie the benefit of the doubt. Charlie, I apologize. Mea culpa.

I still don't really understand how we go from my asking a question related to my confusion about a single specific post to having someone quote me (and only me), then write "Typical, just typical. You ... "

If I had been commenting on thread-drift, CH's comment would probably have made sense to me, despite my having no idea about who was being quoted. But I was not commenting on thread-drift. I was commenting on what seemed to be a really absurd post, without realizing that the absurdity was intentional.

But in any event, I'm ready to move on.

To be honest, I wish I had realized what Convicted One was doing with that post, as I love absurd humor. And re-reading it now, it's quite funny. Yes I feel pretty dense about missing that. Maybe I read it too quickly, initially.

Overmod, I sincerely very much appreciate all the railroad things you have explained to me since I've been on this forum. And I hope you will continue to do so. There's a lot I don't know, and I'm not ashamed to admit that. I welcome info and input from those more experienced and knowlegable than myself, and I came here mainly to learn. But you didn't, and still don't, have a dog in this hunt.

VA’s Suicide Risk Management Consultation Program (SRM) provides one free hour of consultation services for community or VA providers who work with Veterans at risk for suicide.

SRM consultants collaborate with providers and offer tailored, one-on-one support for risk assessment, conceptualization of suicide risk, lethal means safety counseling, strategies for how to engage Veterans at high risk in their own treatment, best practices for documentation, and provider support after a suicide loss (postvention). SRM’s expert consultation and resources promote best practices informed by research conducted in VA and in the community.

SRM experts only consult with PROVIDERS on suicide risk management and does not provide any direct care or support to Veterans. If you are a Veteran in crisis — or you’re concerned about one — free, confidential support is available 24/7. Call the Veterans Crisis Line at 1-800-273-8255 and Press 1, send a text message to 838255, or chat online. Find Veteran Suicide Prevention information and resources on the Veterans Crisis Line website.

Requesting a consultation

Community leaders and other organizations working with Veterans may also request suicide prevention resources, information and education (e.g. presentations). Learning how to identify someone at risk of suicide and ways to offer support are popular examples.

Long Description

The Suicide Risk Management Consultation Program (SRM) is ensuring providers have access to suicide prevention resources to continuously improve Veteran care both inside and outside VA.

Once a provider submits an email request for consultation, an SRM staff member schedules a time to speak with them. Staff can also answer a question via email if preferred.

In the SRM staff’s reply to the provider is an included triage form for the provider/applicant to complete and return. Providers complete and submit the triage form prior to the scheduled consultation. All information discussed during the consultation process is confidential.

To request a consult, or to learn more, please email srmconsult@va.gov or visit www.mirecc.va.gov/visn19/consult.
