This is getting to be a regular feature here on ye olde Snarkypants, innit? Let’s dive right in.
I say a huge WTF to all of the following:
* The entire political process. With the exception of maybe (and that’s a big maybe) ten congresscritters, I want to throw the lot of you out. Posturing fuckwits, all of you, Democrats and Republicans alike. You don’t give one shit about helping people. You care only about lining your own pockets with money from companies whose interests you protect. I couldn’t be more disgusted with all of you if I tried.
~ which leads me to this:
* Hypocrites – I don’t care if you made a sex tape of you strolling your skinny ass down the self serve aisle. I don’t even care if you want to sell it. Knock yourself out, Miss Prejean. But quit acting all pious and Jesus-y about it. You’re not a victim and you’re not being silenced for your views on “opposite marriage”. What you are is a huge fucking hypocrite and I’m pretty sure Jesus would have an issue with that.
~ moving on:
Dude at work who acts like he’s too kool for school: STOP IT. You do everything possible to stand apart from the rest of us. People want to like you but you make it really hard by being all aloof and shit. On top of that, if you fail your Series 63 test again, you’re toast. Hell, even *I* can pass that one without studying. And that’s saying something. Don’t make me root for toast. Unless there’s some jam on it. Then I am all for toast. Pass your test! Be nice to people! Participate! < — my final words to you.
~ and finally:
Person on MeFi who did this:
“I work at a school in New York City. Lately I’ve been under so much stress I have fantasized about quitting often. All of the teachers at my school are browbeaten about test scores and threatened with disciplinary action for missed deadlines and inadequate performance. Yesterday, I told my principal and the assistant principal that I had cancer as a child and it had come back. Yes. Yes I did.”
First off, I have to commend this person for even posting and owning it. On MeFi, yet. While compassion is occasionally found there, more often you’ll get someone laying it on the line to you in no uncertain terms. So, props for bravery. OTOH: That is some fucked up shit. If I didn’t know better, I’d have thought the ghost of Roommate Greg came back and possessed them to make such a stupid decision.
As you can imagine, three readers, they pretty much tore this person a new one. I read about ten replies down before my “OH MY GOD” meter ‘ploded and I had to go listen to a bird sing or something.
Best answer was this:
Uh, wow. Okay. Your lie is going to get found out. Make no mistake about it. Best solution now: tell them that it was a false alarm, drop it, and then go talk to a counselor about how your stress got to the point where you said this. You’re probably very stressed out and it seems pretty clear that something about reality is making you want to live in another reality, one of your own creation. Take some time off and explore this.
Yowza. You know you got some issues when telling your employer that you have cancer seems to be your best option. I hope that person manages to figure his/her way out of that mess.
So, a big WTF to all of you on the list. Try to stay off it for next time, mmmkay?
BONUS: Enjoy! (and I hope this guy never has to sing this at the start of a hockey game because he will be thrashed within an inch of his life – play it and you’ll see why).
