I got called twice on not being PC on Facebook today. There was much butthurt, and I responded in predictable fashion.
There was a fellow mariner, who didn't like that I used the word 'retarded' in a post. I know that some people don't like it. Fuck them. So I responded "Retarded. Ree-tah-did. Insert my Boston accent. No one puts baby in the corner! "
Guy laughed at me, because he's normal.
The other one, well, it was a female fellow alum, a friend from college. Leftist feminist, pretty much. She posted an article about how Hillary Clinton is being unfairly demonized, blah blah blah.
OK, granted, I occasionally troll this girl, who has been less and less tolerant of it, despite my efforts to keep my trolling light. But this morning I was a tad grumpy, so, since there was a big picture of Ms. Clinton's unsavory mug and a stupid gotcha headline, I just responded with 'would not bang.'
And got unfriended, which, actually, was a good thing.
People need to lighten the fuck up. Life's hard. Wear a fucking helmet if you need to. If a lighthearted jest about a political figure ruins your day, you must have an awesome life. My days get ruined by more concrete things- I have yet to go sulk in the corner because someone was mean when they talked about Ronald Reagan (PBUH).
I wonder if my 20th college reunion would be worth going to for the lulz.
