Why? [Aug. 17th, 2000|03:41 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Why do people try to have conversations with my on ICQ when I'm marked as away? And why do they get pissed off when I don't talk back to them? How can I talk back to them if I'm away?

Why are people stupid? Why do people send me emails like this: "Do you know where I can find a good fettish? I don't seem to like anything except women in general." *sigh*

Don't worry --- I save all my stupid stuff now in my "dumbemails" folder, which I'll later put up at stupid-email.danga.com or something.

I think it all comes back to the fact that the majority of people in this world DO NOT READ. That's why you get people pestering you no matter what your status message says. That's why I'd get stuff like "aimes-tu le cybersex?" from strangers on ICQ even after I put "JE NE PARLE PAS FRANCAIS!!!!" in my profile. It's like it's too much effort for people to try and read a few lousy words! >_<

The other day I had to put my bike on the rack attatched to the front of the city bus. I followed the posted directions, and then when I got on the bus, the driver said "you know, I think you're the first person I've ever seen try to actually read that thing." And I can't say that I was particularly surprised at that. ;ppppp

Re: Yuck

Here's some logic for you:

If you write a note in your profile saying that you don't speak French, and you write the fricken note IN FRENCH, people will not believe you.
