I have been subjected to a
moron’s wrath concerning message. Not here, but via e-mail. And it’s nothing to do with Harvey, but it might as well be…
…Darryl Heine. Yes Mike K., stop hyperventilating, yes hiim.
What spurned this was a message on Golden-Road.net that got bumped in the “Out in Left Field” section when I inquired about 1970s PBS kids shows and if anyone knew of tape traders that have them.
Now, the jerk must have gotten my E-Mail address from my profile (which I do list publicly, although I need to change it to something less personal I guess, I don’t want my Z account here on campus everywhere I suppose, anyway…)
Here is the message:
“Nicholas: Glad you remember 1970’s PBS kids shows “Thinkabout” and “Inside/Out”. Do you also remember at the same 1970’s time “Sesame Street”, “Mr. Rogers”, “Electric Company”, “Zoom”, and “Villa Agerie”? Today PBS Kids has “Clifford”, “Dragon Tales”, “Sagwa”, “Barney and Friends”, “Big Comfy Couch”, “Teletubbies”, “Boobah”, and “Arthur”.
First of all, did I want to know what’s on today? Second, the post only referred to “Thinkabout” and “Inside Out”, and not all that other stuff, especially not today’s stuff. Lastly, I just plain dislike him.
To which, I sent a simple, calm-as-can-be reply…
“Leave me alone.
And then I appropriately put him on the Junk E-Mail list on Outlook.
I know I’m not the first to deal with him. But the moral of this story is, do idiots ever learn? Guess not when you’re more than 30 frickin’ years old (judging by his screenname) and don’t have a clue as to how to be civil and just a tad bit intelligent! Geez!
That’s enough ranting for now.
