This is the first time I’ve ever seen Bob. I’m already annoyed by him. Although, the personal, self-depricating bullshit that people post as status updates really annoys me as well.
I’m sorry that you’re depressed, but I don’t want to know about it. Now, when I see you in person, all I think about is the whining that you do on Facebook. The “XXXX has nothing left to live for.” and “XXXX just wants to give up.” and “XXXX doesn’t understand why she keeps getting rabbit corpses in the mail.” messages are lame. Keep it to yourself… does it REALLY make you feel better for people to respond with “awwwww hunny” and “you’re so strong, I know you’ll get through this!” and “WTF? Rabbit corpses???”? Does it?
mcowles: What annoys me more is the people that post vague ones like ‘Moany McWhinerson: life fucking sucks’ and ‘why are all guys such dicks?’ etc, then when someone asks what’s up, they go ‘oh, I don’t wanna say on Facebook, it’s too personal’.
SO why bother at all?
Puerile it may be, but I enjoyed James’ comment. To this day, I still believe that American Pie’s greatest acheivement was to grant jokes about premature ejaculation “comedy gold” status. Unless I’m wrong.
I’m terribly sorry if you’re one of the people that whines on Facebook all the time. Does it make you feel loved to have a half dozen people roll their eyes and type consoling things to you?
If you’re depressed and need someone to talk to, then call me or come hang out with me or send me a private e-mail and I’ll be there in a second and stay as long as it takes.
However, if you have 500 “friends” that are all seeing your “life sucks” and “why does this have to happen to me!” complaints every day, then YOU are doing something wrong.
If you think I don’t care about anyone else’s feelings, then you are more wrong than you could possibly know. Now instead of calling me an asshole, why don’t you go back to your Facebook homepage and read all the “I have faith in you” and “it’ll get better, I promise” messages that you’re clutching to so strongly.
At first I was thinking that Thomas was just clueless, but maybe not. Maybe he’s actually just ignoring the somewhat assholish comment (because gay jokes like that are pretty annoying) & is choosing to comment on it literally. To defuse the joke.
