Extra points for trying.

I'm sure it helps you to believe that, but you were totally out of line, way beyond anything rational. Trumplike. To say that "'sledgehammer to crack a nut' would be an understatement", would be an understatement.

And the board is poorer for it. I don't even check in every day any more because it's three posters replying to every fucking thread and nothing funny*. which is mostly what I came here for. I suspect I'm not alone in that.

Go ahead, return fire. The only thing I really care about atm is beest and he doesn't come here any more either. same reason.


*except the occasional gem from grav and nob and maybe one other poster

Nut with a sledgehammer? Fuckin A. If I disagreed with her, instead of argueing her position she'd attack me tooth and claw. Nobody gets away with that. I even tried to be tolerant sometimes if it was just a snide remark, but she seldom stopped there. Snowflakes shouldn't play with fire.

I had the same problem with you as another poster, it so happened we would be on the board at the same time almost every day. So I was usually the first to post and they took it as picking on them.
So you would rather let the board sit idle because people aren't posting?

Return fire? I can't return fire until you fire first. All you've done is express your opinion on my interaction with Shawnee, and the way the board has been going. I don't see that as a personal attack on me or anyone. I wish more people would state their opinion rather than slinking away.

Just because you're a citizen now that doesn't negate you came from a culture who think Peter Sellers was funny.

Some people would say you are supposed to climb down into the hole with the person and keep them company, but while I understand where they are coming from, I am skeptical. It might be appreciated, but who does it help?

I don't really see it in terms of right and wrong, but more in terms of usefulness and effectiveness.

If you try throwing a rope and the person in the hole acts like you threw a boulder, then maybe that's the time to just leave them to it.Not in a nasty way - just recognise that the person you are trying to help, clearly doesn't actually want you to help - in that moment they're just venting.

I just don't see much point in pushing it in that situation - the person venting ends up feeling under attack and so does the person trying to help them.

Everybody ends up feeling like a bag of shite and for no gain.

That is true but let me be annoying and state it another way.

The most sexist thing that I have ever said, but will continue to say anyway, is:

Women WORRY about problems. Men SOLVE them.

I try to Don't Worry, but, I'm still working on Be Happy.

Whoever is doing it, worrying doesn't do anything. If you can get by without it, well, it's just one less thing to do.

Worry motivates me to solve problems. That is to day, when I have anxiety, I worry on how to eliminate it.

Get this happy horse shit:

When I got to the bar yesterday evening (I'd been sitting at the bar literally two minutes) the manager comes around, asks how I'm doing, then asks if I'd come back to his office. In his office he proceeds to let me know he's had to ask me to leave the bar twice, and if there's third time he may have to bar me from the bar.

That shit ran right fucking all over me.

I sat there for a minute. I was kinda stunned, to be honest. I grew up with this fellow after all. We're pretty close to being actual friends, and I don't got a lot of them.

He asked me "What're ya thinkin'?"

I said "I've had to defend myself from physical assault at least twice in this establishment. I'm thinking that the next time I have to defend myself from assault in your establishment I might just take the ass-beating. [I can take an ass-beating, too. Lots of experience.] Call the cops. To the bar. And then sue this place out of existence for not providing a safe environment for its patrons. Drag everybody into court, waitresses/witnesses, managers, bartender/witnesses, owners. There are no bouncers. There is no security. There are security cameras, which will prove anything in court, including me defending myself."

His turn to be stunned for a minute. I get where he's coming from, don't get me wrong. But he's not threatening/punishing the right guy in this situation, he's threatening/punishing the guy that's available.

So now I don't feel like I can spend my money there w/a good conscience. And that's pissing me off. That doesn't hurt Mr. Manager, he gets paid the same if I'm there or, not. The only people it hurts are me, and the lovely bartendress that won't be getting my tips. She won't miss 'em, I'm sure, but, it will be $50 bucks or so a week out of her pocket. Besides that, I like the place.

At least four times this year, I've seen the manager come up to guys sitting at the bar, and ask them to help get someone out of the bar. So, stay tuned friends and neighbors, maybe you'll get to read about me getting my ass handed to me. I know that'd make several of you happy.

Prolly sooner than later.

I think I'll change the name of the place to The Bucket O' Blood.

That sucks big time, it's not fair. Does the manager feel you're provoking these guys making you the problem?

Maybe he's been hogging the bartendress' attention to the ire of other patrons.

He didn't say as much, but, I kinda felt the "Trouble Magnet" sticker when he pasted it to my forehead. I really don't start shit, but, I cannot deny being a smart ass. It's a personal failing and a major character flaw. I am getting better about it, though.

Once, ONCE, this guy was really loud, talking into his phone right next to me, cussing out his wife/girlfriend/mother/daughter, I don't remember what it was about, but I asked him "What'd she say?" after he paused his ranting, and then a minute laterI asked "What'd she think about that?". Dude told me to mind my own business, in those exact words. Then I responded with "Then quit hollering your business into my ear and all over the bar."

That's what started that one.

Plus, the numbers work against me. I'm there literally 3 - 7 days a week. Since the place opened. So odds are something's gonna happen involving yours truly sooner or later. A lot of those times I was first one in, and last one out, too.

Not once has any trouble at all come from what I'd call 'regulars', wonderful ppl like myself who are there a lot. The trouble almost always has been the ppl stopping in off the interstate, or ppl who rarely come in.

Oh, and there was a screaming fit Baby had in there once. It was directed at me in return for some perceived slight or another. It happened there because that's where I was when she found me. Heh, she called me everything but a white man that night, good times.

That's prolly not good for business.




It ain't just me, either, I've seen a lot of shit go, or almost go down there. And the other couple bars in town, too. It's like...shit happens in bars.
