What would you do if you suddenly found out that the other poster in the Coffee Room whose views you most furiously and severely disagree with and whom you’ve been regularly and bluntly arguing against in this forum for years, on virtually all topics and in the most strongest terms, is your spouse or your parent or your child?January 24, 2019 8:01 am at 8:01 am #1667673ubiquitinParticipant
I love you too TattyJanuary 24, 2019 8:01 am at 8:01 am #1667666MalachOfCholentParticipant
is that what you found out?January 24, 2019 9:13 am at 9:13 am #1667686
Then you have communication problems (it doesn’t show in real life and you only found out in the coffee room)January 24, 2019 9:13 am at 9:13 am #1667707
I love you too Tatty
I love you too, Usher Boruch.
For those wondering what happened, I shockingly found out that CTLAWYER is Tatte when I picked up his phone when he had put it down and saw it logged into the CR. Now that he’ll see my comment, he’s sure to ask all the kids if they’re Joseph. Since I’m going to play dumb about this, he’s going to write this all off as another silly online gag, none the wiser.
Now y’all know what I would do in this scenario.January 24, 2019 9:32 am at 9:32 am #1667714ubiquitinParticipant
So CTL is Zeidy!January 24, 2019 10:04 am at 10:04 am #1667720Some Common SenseParticipant
My kids and wife already know my YWN name and know my writing style; we communicate.
What would happen if you have two id and argue with each other for your benefit?January 24, 2019 10:04 am at 10:04 am #1667723GadolhadorahParticipant
A horse of another animal or a brother-in-law from another mother or???? Sounds very suspicious and raises some fundamental questions about long-held theories of genetic mutation.January 24, 2019 10:25 am at 10:25 am #1667757
Act II: Scene; CTL Compound, family gathering;
Zeidy; OK all of you, the jig is up! The time for v arguments is over! Hand over your phones for inspection! With your passwords, fingertips & faces!
I have a notary standing by to certify the amendments to my will!January 24, 2019 10:31 am at 10:31 am #1667789
Joseph; come on how many attorneys can there be in suburban Connecticut towns with an Orthodox community who have served in public office? I’m sure anyone who is sufficiently determined can ascertain CTL’s identity. In summation, I hereby find Joseph’s tale quite entertaining but pointedly straining all credulity.January 24, 2019 12:25 pm at 12:25 pm #1667841

I thought your kids have stayed at his house before and love it and don’t want to come home (as per crl)January 24, 2019 12:25 pm at 12:25 pm #1667846WinnieThePoohParticipant
But that would mean that Joseph lives OOT!!!!!January 24, 2019 5:15 pm at 5:15 pm #1668091
Tatte is going to have to give you a potch in tuchkes.
How many times have I told you not to touch my business phone?
I have nothing to hide, but you could have violated atty/client privilege
It’s a good thing that I make all my clients sign a form allowing any of my employees at the CTL firm to see all info.
Why do you think I give you your allowance with a company check? and file taxes for you every year? and pay the taxes?
It’s not that I think a 40 year old shouldn’t be earning a living, but to protect myself from lawsuits, because you refuse to grow upJanuary 24, 2019 6:43 pm at 6:43 pm #1668107
No he’s not, he moved out of ct and now is a nyer that hates ooters (brings back bad memories)January 24, 2019 7:06 pm at 7:06 pm #1668128
In the past 40+ years I’ve known more than a dozen Orthodox Jewish Lawyers who have held elected positions in suburban CT. This includes towns/cities such as West Hartford, Bloomfield, Stamford, Norwalk, Westport, Fairfield and others I shall not name.
Most of these elected positions are part time on Boards and Commissions or the town legislature. They are without pay, In addition I knew such people serving in cities such as New Haven, Waterbury, Norwich, New London, Bridgeport. Not all of these have an orthodox community anymore. Some such as Bridgeport are cities in their own right, but also commuting suburbs of New YorkJanuary 25, 2019 8:01 am at 8:01 am #1668199MammeleParticipant
CTL: and married off a daughter at a pretty specific time? And who’s MIL passed away on a specific date? And who’s wife (who’s an architect btw) will IY”H undergo surgery soon? Sorry, I don’t know you, but anyone who does and is active in the CR has already figured out who you are. Most likely not too many people in your circles are avid Coffee Roomers though, so no worries. Unless you changed some facts here to protect your identity, you’ve shared way too much to feign anonymity. (Which I don’t think you did for various reasons).
Most importantly, Refuah Sheleima to your wife! May you share many simchos gezunterheit biz 120+ !!!January 25, 2019 8:09 am at 8:09 am #1668226
CTL; What you’re saying would made it quite difficult for the average CR poster to identify you. However if Joseph was your son he would definitely have identified you by all the personal details you’ve mentioned over the course of time. Nice bedtime story though. Also don’t potch too hard or Joseph’s personal injury attorneys will be in touch with you forthwith.January 25, 2019 9:12 am at 9:12 am #1668240
This thread is just a little Pre-Purim levity.
It is obvious that Joseph is not my son..
My sons live and work in CT None of my children live in NYC.
BTW, love your riceJanuary 26, 2019 8:38 pm at 8:38 pm #1668495
Another shocker: Over Shabbos my sister, who obviously saw this thread put 1 and 1 together and realized which brother I am. After all, which other brother in our family such as ours is so outspoken against mesira in our time among other uniquely strongly expressed views at the Shabbos table. Well, she confided to me that she knew all along that Tatte was CTL. But what truly floored me was when she told me her screen name.
Buckle your seat belts, folks: She’s Syag Lchochma!!January 26, 2019 8:48 pm at 8:48 pm #1668503yitzchokmParticipant

I’d feel bad about being confrontational.
But I would still love whomever it turns out to be… I already have a family member whose political opinions are completely opposite of mine.January 27, 2019 9:04 am at 9:04 am #1668661
DaasYochid, are you mishpacha too??

We’re all brothers and sisters.
I think we all (myself included) need to consider that when considering what, and to a larger extent, how, we write to another poster.January 27, 2019 9:53 am at 9:53 am #1668683
Wow, it used to be that joe was most of the posters
Now instead he says they’re all family
