The Sunday Post 54

I was subjected to so much anger this week. Not just online, but pretty much everywhere. I hope this helps.

Rant on Mother F*&$%rs!

Anger anger anger. Every where I turned this week there it was, staring me in the face. And I don’t do anger well.

I keep forgetting that I need to be on the road from my grandparents house at 5:30. One drink in, Grand dad is still ok. 1/2 way through his second drink he turns into even more of a pain in the ass than normal and damn if that Jack Daniels doesn’t turn him into a huge prick.

That is #1.

I keep forgetting that I need to not read the internets. Internet people are idiots.

That is #2.

Re: the internet people. I will say right now that it’s ok if you want to go to YouTube or some message boards and be total dickwad there. It’s like they are designed for that. And, as I do not visit YouTube anymore, let alone *any* message boards, the chances of our paths crossing are minimal.

Until you decide to step into _my_ internets.

You see, on _my_ sites, I’m king shit. I’m the guy in charge. And, on the sites I don’t own, I’m king shit there too. Sure, I don’t own them, but I’m there to uphold a certain level of whatever.

You see, I don’t do anger. We covered this already above. And when I have to read it on one of _my_ sites, I tend to get upset. I mean *really* upset. And, when I get upset, I get angry. Trust me when I say you wouldn’t like me when I’m angry.

It’s at that point I do what I think is best for:

  1. Me
  2. The site

Yes, in that order.

Before you start crawling *all* of my sites looking for an email address or contact form so you can keep the conversation going ‘offline’, just stop. And I will tell you why.

  1. I’m not in your address book already? This mean I don’t know you. It also means your email will get deleted as soon as it lands in my inbox.
  2. You are an idiot? I’m sorry, I can’t help you there. You should try pulling your head out of your ass. Or go outside for some air.
  3. You are mad as hell and aren’t going to take it anymore? Um. Tough shit. I don’t care.
  4. You think you are right? Um. You missed the “I’m king shit” part above, didn’t you?

These are things you need to keep in mind before you decide to let your keyboard be your tough guy in _my_ internets.

But, really, if you feel strong enough about something that you are willing to make yourself look like an ass to over 20,000 readers, then you should be prepared to face deletion, moderation or to have your ‘outlet’ taken away.

If you really feel that strongly, might I recommend you get your own corner of the internet so you can put your poor grammar, poor spelling and anger to pixels someplace else.

It will make it easier for me to ignore you.

Thank you for your time.

  1. Every once in a while, you _should_ post a good rant. It clears the brain and the sinuses & allows you to function a more normal level. #1 recommendation: Do it among friends, who get that you’re going to be better soon.

    You seem to have all of the above covered. Hope things start turning up for you, soonest. Sometimes it’s good to be the king.

  2. Sorry DB, I know that was a rant and intended to be therapeutic but I’ll be damned if it didn’t make me laugh a bit. 🙂

  3. You know, even tho they are rants and, actually, are very theraputic, I still try to structure the words in such a way as to illicit at the very least a giggle from the audience.

    I am glad I succeeded! [insert message board thumbs up guy here]
