I’ve been blogging and tweeting for years and I’ve just received the first negative comment ever via a private message. I guess I should feel thankful as I’ve gone this long not hearing rude remarks from some of the many angry people out there.
He claims I boast and brag based on my last posted quote, saying I was claiming my experience to be the same as Mr. Wodehouse. Sometimes someone’s thoughts and memories bring up similar thoughts and memories of my own. I, in no way, mean to ever claim I’ve had the “same” experience as someone else. They may be similar but I do not compare myself to anyone else. I like to make connections – connections with other writers (and he claimed that was lame, too), connections with musicians, artists, CEOs, all friggin’ walks of life. I like to make friends. I like to hear their stories. Sometimes, I like to share a story of my own.
I sincerely never meant to brag or boast. I honestly don’t ever recall ever bragging or boasting, unless it was bragging on my child, as I am her biggest fan, and should be, and if you don’t like it, you can go jump off a… okay, let me calm down a bit.
If you think I ever brag or boast, please tell me. Set me straight. I certainly have nothing to brag about. My life ain’t all that. We struggle on a daily basis, wonder if we’ll make ends meet from week to week. But I am rich in love, rich in family, rich in friends, rich in imagination, and gaining richness in forgiveness. I realize there are angry, evil people out there, where it seems their main goal and ambition is to bring others down. Well, it pretty much fired me up and pissed me off. It didn’t get me down, so here you go, douche bag, get a life. Yeah, you made me angry. You are an angry, self-absorbed person, since all you did was be the kettle calling me black as you bragged and boasted about all those little details you spewed out about your “accomplishments.”
Remember this: “An ounce of pretension is worth a pound of manure,” as quoted from Steel Magnolias. You might be better served to shut your mouth, grow a heart, maybe some compassion and look inside yourself before you start spewing that garbage to someone else. Oh, I’m not vexed. Not anymore. I’ve had my say and I feel better. I’m too sorry for you to leave any room in my heart for anger or disgust. Seems to me you need prayers and maybe a darn good spanking rather than my anger.
And to the rest of you, I hope you know how much I appreciate you, your blogs, your friendship, your sharing pieces of your lives with me. Many of you are like members of my family and I claim you all to be part of my family. So there. And please, if I ever have bragged or boasted or ever do, please, please tell me. Because this is never ever my intention. I still am confused as to where I have bragged or boasted about anything. Can someone point it out? And for the d-bag, I’m not including you in this. You have already had your say and I will hear no more from you.
All my kind friends, sorry for my choice of words, but I’m just being honest here and had to get it out.
