Negative Blog Comments: My (Funny) Collection
Maybe all the comments are going to get the ax.
There was a day here in the Break Room when the comment section was alive and well. People used to leave lots of comments. I used to leave more comments than I do now on other blogs. It's funny, but back then less people read my stuff, yet I had more comments. As I looked back through the comments to find these gems below, I was reminded of people that used to read my blog (and let me know about it). I was reminded of bloggers whose blogs I used to read. I was reminded of people who read my stuff then and still read it now. For all of those, I am grateful.
In more recent days, however, much more dialogue takes place on Facebook. Or Twitter. I want to be able to still have conversations surrounding topics that I bring up here, if they come up. I just don't want to deal with spell casters and other spammers. They are taking over. They are super annoying and I want all of their comments to fall into a volcano.
Before I officially pull the plug on the comments, though, I thought I'd share a few of the ones that have stood out to me. I didn't include any positive ones. I have loved all of those and treasure them, no doubt. They aren't as entertaining as these, though. I thought you would enjoy them, too.
From a disgruntled reader of the post "Sooo...I ran over 5 ducks": This isn't remotely funny..You're trying to make humor out of it for your blog by trying to be witty and appear remorseful and really it's just sad and pathetic attempt for attention..Y.S.BA.O.Y. YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF.
From readers who are passionate about pantyhose on the post "You're wearing pantyhose, aren't you?":
SIDENOTE: I don't hate pantyhose.
#1 Thank goodness my wife has the class to wear brown nylons any time she wears a dress, especially with sandal heels. It is the sexiest, most elegant, sophisticated look of all. I would be embarrassed if she didn't. I don't know what idiot started the rule of no hose with sandals. It looks garish and common. Remember, a lady always has time for hose. Prostitutes don't.
#2 I don't care how nice you think your legs look, they are ALWAYS going to be more attractive in well-matched stockings. I can't believe how LAZY we have all become. And you are NUTS to think that we do not get more attention wearing them. I dress so that MEN are attracted to me, not so that some teenager (well, twenty-something) now woman will approve of what I wear. Our HR person, a woman in her 40's, absolutely favors well-dressed woman, and this always means hose. You can see it in promotions. They do not even mind us going barefooted back/forth between our desks and the stacks when working late, as long as we are wearing hose. What is the matter with all of you?
#3 Odd thing, really, that so many women seem to hate them.
Simply put, in my office, you wear them or don't work for us. Yoiu don't wear flip flops of any kind. If it hints that you might wear something to the beach, men or women, you're sent home. A woman run's my HR department. Her idea. Not mine. It's more professional. It impresses clients.
Our Christmas Party is FORMAL. Black tie & gowns. You don't want to attend because you don't want to dress up? Not a problem. You don't get a holiday bonus.
Why is it formal? We invite high profile clients. Again, your appearance is important. The first year we did it, we assumed people knew what "dress up" meant. To all too many it meant that it was outside the office and they could wear their newest pair of jeans.
The younger generation seems to think beach flip flops, jeans, khaki pants and T Shirts are professional office attire. Sorry to disappoint you but it isn't.
You don't want to EVER wear hose? OK, then don't bitch and whine that you're freezing and your feet hurt in the winter when you just have to wear that micro mini skirt and 5" high heels.
If your hose are not comfortable, they are the wrong size or style. Learn to buy clothes.
Lastly, seriously look at your bare leg look. 95% of the women out there do not have the legs to go bare. Sorry, you may think your legs are to die for but when you hit your 30's you start to have changing skin tone, freckles and beauty marks get more contrast, you get spider veins even if you work out and your legs just don't look like they did when you were 18. And that spray tan crap? It gets all over everything. At least most intelligent people know that hosiery are a fashion accessory where that spray tan crap is fake.
#4 (She really told me off) Than I bet you don't travel much, if you don't see women in hosiery unless they're 60+. Your home town or area isn't the world.
#5 (Are you lazy?) Just my 2 cents...
As a guy, I don't understand why a woman would spend hundreds or thousands of $$ on a nice dress/skirt and shoes and then walk around with nasty, pasty, bare legs. I see it all the time here, how gross! I lived in Eastern Europe doing contract work for quite some time and the women, my girlfriends included, wore nylons ALL THE TIME, with everything. Just goes to show you what a lazy culture America has become, especially the females.
From a random commenter that I saw making the rounds on many blogs on the post "Do you remember your school's fight song? My grandmother does."BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN Why American men should boycott American women http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/ I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women? American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least. This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women. Tens of millions of American men have had their lives completely destroyed by American .
