After all this time on FaceBook, I’m still not really sure why I use it. However, it’s amusing at times and I’ve made contact with a few truly nice people. I suppose, if nothing else happens, that’s not a bad result.
Different people become “friends” on that site for a variety of reasons. My list is up to 390, but I don’t “know” the majority of them. There’s also no “trail” to show when or how someone may have linked up with me, meaning I don’t know if I contacted them or they contacted me. It happens both ways. The primary reason when I make the friend request is because I see a picture of an attractive woman. Granted, I don’t ever expect anything will come of it, but I enjoy a pretty girl as much now as I did when I was younger.
Something I don’t enjoy, no matter how “good” someone looks, is stupidity. On the heels of that one is bigotry, followed by nastiness. Ignorance also doesn’t rank well with me, nor does inherent laziness.
Frequently, based on my stellar wit, I insert clever one-liners on FaceBook. One needn’t be a Rhodes scholar to get the meaning, but they aren’t intended for someone who’d struggle with a GED test. I put up a clever one tonight: “Once while we were married I helped my then-wife color her hair. I was interested in watching her dye.” (Italics added for this article). There’ve been a few ha-ha comments from my friends, although no one has yet been rushed to the ER suffering from hysteria.
Anyone who’s such a miserable speller he-she doesn’t understand my form of dry humor clearly operates on an intelligence level different than mine. I also have no respect for people stupid or lazy enough to USE ALL CAPS in e-mail or other messages. Same goes for people using the numbskull “shorthand” becoming prevalent in the dumbing down of America(ns). If it’s too much trouble to keyboard “you are” or “your” and you wish to use “UR”, please send your low level intelligence missives to someone else. You’re too stupid or lazy for me to be interested in anything you have to say.
The above dry wit drew the second hate mail in the last few days from someone I’ve blocked from my list now. I won’t identify her other than to say she’s black, the picture on her profile is a fat, ugly female, and the few things I’ve seen tell me she’s not very smart. Oh, and she can’t spell worth a damn. In this garbage comment from her, pasted in below, she also tried to link her threat against me to the incompetent M. Bareass Obama, along with a barely decipherable insult.
“I LISTEN TO SUM OF UR COMMENTS BUT TONITE U NEED SUM WOMEN NOT BUT ME TO BEAT UR ASS FORREAL LAY OFF DA DUMB COMMENTS BC U R NOT DA ONLY ONE WHO SEE THIS N I HAD TO SAY THIS! I TRY TO GIVE POSITIVE NOT WAT U SHOULD HAVE CHANGE CUS ITS FORREAL! OBAMA! FOR MY MOM, MY KIDS N ME SHID”
If the drivel above makes any sense to you, if you agree with that moron, if the stupidity she’s showing is acceptable, there’s an UNSUBSCRIBE command at the bottom of the e-mail you get with these articles. Please use it.
I’m just sayin’.
