You forgot this one: "Try not to fall head over heals for female members who are not only super hot but actually demonstrate considerable wit, a keen intellect and independent thought."



You'll need that rule out there, given that your post will most likely generate a marriage proposal or three in addition to the usual flames.

Not everyone is out to get you! Not all women are evil. Not all men are assholes. Not all people cheat. If you find that YOUR partners are evil, assholes and/or cheat, consider the common denominator..... YOU. Get your picker fixed.

If someone is rude or stupid in your eyes, IT'S NOT PERSONAL. They are probably having a bad day or are thinking about something totally unrelated to YOUR wants or needs. Just because someone works in customer service does not mean they don't have bad days. The next time someone is rude to you and you feel it is unwarranted, try being a decent human being and asking them if they are having a bad day. I would be willing to be the answer is yes, it has NOTHING to do with you and by exhibiting a little decency to another person you may make that person's day a little better by sympathizing and they may make your life a little easier by being more willing to comply with your request.

Life is good. Learn to count your blessings. Find joy in the little things. This life is not about what you acquire... it's about the relationships you have and build with other PEOPLE and the memories that you create.

If you don't like your life, imagine the life you'd like to have and work towards it.

That is all.....




Can't you post some pics to go with this?

Hmmm...quite true. If you notice in the "bus driver beat down" thread, the kid in question is performing his antics apparently trying to show off for the girl sitting behind him. The kid is already being controlled like a monkey on a leash and he doesn't even know it!* The female in question is, even at that tender age, sharpening and honing her wiley feminine skills and guile! Testosterone boy gets a beat down, embarrassed in public, and mucho trouble whereas the girl thinks, "Ahhh! That was so easy! On to bigger and wealthier prey!"

*Alas, he only as 30-35 years to go before he realizes what a sap he's been!

That has to be the most sensitive, non-threatening insult I've ever read! Sort of the "Mad Cow Disease" of insults: 5 years after you're told this you realize, "Hey, I was insulted!"

Like patting someone on the back and smacking them at the same time.

As far as customer service goes, if you work in customer service and are truely meant to do that, then you know how to not let your bad day get to you. Having worked in just that, I have never once snapped at a customer and was always happy and smiling regardless of the day I was having. Made the day much better to know that I wasn't going to get complained about or make someone else mad while I was working.

Myself overly sensitive hell no! Sometimes abrasive, yeah. And as far as others having a bad day and taking it out on those not causing it, welll some people just need a punch in the throat. You are right some people around here are to fucking whiney. I am very direct if someone pisses me off I tell them, sort the issue their and am done with it then. Good point though aboutpeople crying to the mods about someone calling them names, crying about what someone you will probably never meet in person says to you is just pointless.

I totally disagree with that. If anything, there is MORE disagreement, and a greater variety of viewpoints on arfcom now than there ever has been before.

In my opinion, the only things that have been cracked down on are - (1) the personal attacks (which are completely unecessary in a disagreement) and (2) the juvenile bullshit from the more immature members. I see this as an inevitable consequence of the massive growth of the site, not as a fundamental change or shift.



That said, I do AGREE with you that there are too many whiny bitches (almost exclusively of the male gender ) on the site now, who get their "feelings" hurt too easily, and resort to stupid personal attacks when they've got no argument. But I don't see this overall "neutering" that you're seeing - and I've been here since the late 90s as well.

There's an old joke....

What's the difference between a bitch and a whore?

A whore sleeps with everyone. A bitch sleeps with everyone but YOU.


You, arowner, are the absolute EMBODIMENT of that joke. I wish I had saved all of the IMs you've sent me over the years.... jab at me in public but plead forgiveness in private.

As for the size four comment? I have NEVER wanted to be a size four... if I were, I wouldn't be able to run a farm on my own. I already know I'm in control of my weight... I happen to like having a healthy ass.

Besides the contention with Eric wasn't about the size of his then girlfriend... it was the fact that he had, was and continues to chastise other's for behaviour he himself indulges in.

But way to bring up past posts out of context and put me in my place.....







You're pitiful. I wish *I* had saved some of those IM's...you come here expecting EVERYONE to worship you , just because you have a pretty face. But...over the years? We've had maybe a half-dozen conversations.

Anyway, well, if the shoe fits, wear it...so which shoe are you wearing? You mentioned two fo them.....

You really should get over yourself. I wouldn't sleep with you if you were the last woman on earth. (I'm sure the feeling is mutual).



I remember the 'size 4' thing very well. You, moreso than most, LOVE to drag others down with you. Ah, yes, we've all seen your psoting style. You are a pious follower of the 'miss magnum school of religion'.

Well, some of us aren't impressed.

Come here and paint with your broad brush, and don't be surprised if some of us paint back.

A half dozen IM conversations that YOU initiated and ended up getting pissy over because I don't agree with you about relationships, women and how we should act. And because when I disagree, you call me arrogant.

As for me having a pretty face? Thank you but that was not my doing... genetics, nothing more. In fact, I was the chubby, dorky kid in high school who NEVER dated. To be told later in life that people find me attractive has been a surprise. And then, to have someone go further and say that I'm trying to get by on my looks? That's really laughable to me.

You've repeatedly told me to get over myself. This is an insinuation that I think I'm better than you. Not true. I think I'm different than you. Why you have to take it to some "I wouldn't sleep with you if you were the last woman on earth" level really makes me question YOUR internal dialogue concerning me.


I remember the 'size 4' thing very well. You, moreso than most, LOVE to drag others down with you. Ah, yes, we've all seen your psoting style. You are a pious follower of the 'miss magnum school of religion'.


Where am I trying to drag them down to? I'm not promiscous. I'm not an alcholic. I don't take drugs. I earn an honest living. I do volunteer work. I take in stray and abused animals. Please tell me what kind of scourge I am that I am somehow dragging other people down?


Well, some of us aren't impressed.

Come here and paint with your broad brush, and don't be surprised if some of us paint back.




Good. I'm glad you're not impressed. Kind of proves my point.

See, if I WERE trying to generate some sort of worship around here, don't you think I'd try to spout off what y'all would LIKE to hear? Stuff about how y'all are so right, women ARE all evil.

That animals should be killed because we are at the top of the food chain and we can, not only when we need to eat or eliminate a clearly defined problem.

That I shouldn't be single because it somehow means that I am lacking or an inferior woman as opposed to a person who is content being single which is God's plan until the RIGHT person comes along.

Hmmmm?



Sweetie, you're gonna have to slow that down some. Remember, I'm just a poor mouth-breathing knuckle-dragger, mmkay?

Now, explain to me where your being single or killing animals came into this conversation.

Or...don't.

It's probably a waste of your time.

And mine.

Have a nice day - but quit painting with the broad brush. It works both ways, y'know?
