I’ve been no stranger to people not liking me online (normal person + ability to anonymously comment = jackass), but generally in person I ain’t so bad (or so I think…)
I randomly remembered this hilarious exchange I had over Facebook with a newly met acquaintance in 2007 (not sure why I never posted it on my blog back then).
Her scathing words made me laugh so hard I printed it out and posted it on my wall at the time. I also forward to some friends and it “went viral” within our friend circle!
Just so I don’t forget about my #1 fan in the future, I’m memorializing it here:
I won’t use her actual name in the text of this post (being nice so her name doesn’t come up in search results), so we’ll call her ManPoop (that’s what her name sounds like spelled backwards).
After a fun dinner meetup we were all at, some friends told me “ManPoop REALLY hates you…what did you do?” I had no idea, and the only interaction we had was at the same table as 10 other people. I quickly found her boring and hard to talk to, so we hardly even spoke one-on-one. I dismissed any thought of ManPoop until I was later told she so thoroughly hated my guts.
Since this was a family friend of a friend…I decided a quick little message would clear the air (otherwise I wouldn’t have cared at all). I wasn’t prepared for such a well thought out message. This verbal diatribe reminds me of those online commentors that bad-mouth everything someone does…when all they have to do is stop reading.
I still laugh every time I see this :-)
