Dont You Hate It When...
Dont You Hate It When...
...someone who doesn't know diddly-squat about you decides to tell you what your motives are?
I guess you're probably wondering what I'm talking about, huh? LOL
Long story short, I got an email a couple days ago from someone that started his message with a bit of a rant about not getting much from his AdultFriendFinder experience. He also stated emphatically that he didn't consider "canned responses" an answer.
Anyone that knows me on this site or offline has a pretty good indication of what I'm like. People that have met me in "real life" can tell you that I am very much the way I come across online. Horrible, but true. LOL
Well, this site (I assume)is supposed to be fun, so I thought I'd have a little fun with my response. (Theme from "Jaws" plays ominously in the background.}
I asked the guy that sent the email (jokingly, I might add) what one is supposed to do if his/her response to an email actually IS one of the Quick Reply choices.
BIG mistake! (Needle scratches across record and music stops)
The tersely worded email I got in response was something to the effect that I was to write him only when I felt like being serious.
I probably shouldn't have responded again, but live and learn, right? In my second email, I said something like, "I'm not getting the feeling we're going to click" and referred positively to a statement he made in his initial email about his finding a friend from the site. (I'm looking back and that was actually a pretty dumb decision on my part.)
The next email I got wasn't very nice. I was accused of being on the site to just to get my "jollies" and not to actually meet someone. (Oh, and that also goes for my online friends, too. Just letting you know. LO
I was wondering why on earth he'd written to me in the first place having supposedly read my profile and my blog entries! He clearly wasn't amused by any of it, so why email?
My best guess is that he purposely picked on someone totally incompatible so that he could pull the Angry, Insulting Online Dude or Chick schtick that a lot of us have had to deal on this site or on others.
I'm not sure there's a moral to the story other than choosing any response you give wisely. I know what I should have done...after the fact. LOL
This weekend went by too fast, didn't it? Who would like to impersonate me at work tomorrow? Anyone? LOL
Have a great week!

At which metro stop should I get off? |
I don't think we'd fool anyone for too long.
Just be glad Happy Guy is online and not on the street.

DC I think it was "be an asshole in email" week last week. I had the same thing and once again I wrote about it (we realy need to stop doing this!) Mr. nice guy turns on me after he gets the rejection note.|

Well...let me put my SERIOUS hat on for a moment . REALLY, what business is it of ANYBODY but yours why you're here? Some are here to meet, some are here to chat, others to look at pictures and still OTHERS are here to leave really lame joke comments in blogs (raising hand). You have to love it when people get mad because YOU didn't meet HIS preconceived notions of why you're here|

You are so right, Oh Wise One.
I know why I'm here and I don't need to explain myself. I never ask anyone that question myself. I figure that people have their reasons.
I'm pretty annoyed at myself for taking Angry Dude's bait, though.
I may do some dumbass things, but I always learn a lesson...eventually. LOL
