fuck this is hopeless everyone here is in denial
we were always doomed
they outflanked us man...
but seriously where and when did this war happened , nobody ever mentioned it did somebody died?
What is the best case of “you just picked a fight with the wrong person” that you've witnessed?QuoteHappened to me, and recently.
An employee at the neighborhood cafe I had frequented for the past six years started harrassing and intimidating me at the beginning of last year, because her boyfriend (also co-worker) was in the habit of flirting with me every time I came in. He would try hitting on me right in front of her, completely oblivious to her while she stood there watching and fuming. I noticed her in my peripheral vision each time, and would simply walk away and pretend not to understand her boyfriend’s advances.
To get away with her emotionally abusive tactics towards the customer that was done with stealthy duplicity, the charming and saccharine employee (a try-hard performance I saw right though when she was hired not too long before all this began) would try to insult me to my face as she took my order each day by pretending to have forgotten my name. She didn’t hide the fact that she was pretending either, but would flutter her lashes, look up at me doe eyed innocently and sweetly say each day, “I’m so sorry, what’s your name again?”
After I told her with a poker face, despite knowing what she was doing, she’d smile happily to herself as she typed in my name, as though pleased that she’d been able to dominate another human being. And after I’d sat down at my usual table, she’d march over, hover over me and began loudly and cheerfully addressing all the other regulars by name.
She’d snicker as she looked me up and down, stifle her laughter as she studied my face each time I was giving her my order, or suddenly appear right beside me if I was at the condiment bar in the back, sighing in subtle exasperation as though she still couldn’t get rid of me. Found phlegm floating in my drink at one point, but not wanting to accuse anyone without proof I didn’t report it.
When I kept coming back (this covert narcissist still didn’t get after eight months that her emotional bullying had no effect on me, as she was such a mediocre person all I really felt was embarrassment for her), she took to groaning dramatically and making as though wanting to vomit when I was next in line, and then she started slandering me. Told her boyfriend that I cursed at her while she took my order and who knows what else, in order to turn him against me, the customer who wanted nothing to do with either of them. He started watching me with suspicion (and she’d grin happily beside him at how things were turning out) and she got other younger employees, eager minions, to report to her when I’d go by in the evenings when she wasn’t on shift, so she could continue harrassing me when she wasn’t there.
As all of this went on, I made both mental and physical note of it all.
I write about human rights issues, the world’s oppressors and tyrants, and bad behavior in general, and I do so without political correctness but acerbic flair. I’m also an easy target for bullies — I’m an introvert, am always sitting in the cafe by myself, reading or writing, and rarely interact with others around me. Having not reacted to her provocations and bullying all those months was mistaken for submissiveness and weakness, instead of what I was exercising in the presence of attention seekers — stoicism.
I waited for the right time, when she’d least expect, before writing a long-ass review on the cafe’s Yelp page, describing in full detail all the crap she’d pulled on me, the customer, for nearly a year. Made sure to mention that I wrote about bullies for a living and I’d spoken to some buddies who’re attorneys, which could only make her look even more stupid, targeting and slandering a person/customer she knew nothing about, and the fact that none of the complaints I’d made in private (I made five in total after eight months, when her mask had begun to slide almost completely off) were taken seriously by others. Cafe lost my business and damaged their own reputation, because the “sweetest” two-faced employee they had on staff managed to manipulate all of them, causing this much trouble for everyone.
That repulsive person was exposed in front of an audience, and I can only imagine that the inevitable outcome was that she was fired. All of this because of a guy, in what I now refer to as a great anecdote, and the saddest display of insecurity I’d ever seen.
Also, how’s that for a front-runner for the Darwin awards?
I'm not gonna take any side in this discussion but i find the use of the word "millennials" to be absolutely cringeworthy and just reeks of elitism. I hate that word.
It's alright to have a neutral perspective on things, especially arguments like this.
Also yeah... "millennial". Such a broad and misused term. I'm not even too sure if I am one myself!
Both you and kakkoi are acting extremely cringeworthy over a small ass remark about kakkoi comparing mugen to fighting game, can you both stop lol
You're both overreacting and trying to 1 up each other in terms of insults and shit that nobody here needs to hear about on and on. You both are looking immature as hell right now, just stop replying to each other and leave this stupid subject alone and stop derailing this thread over said subject good Lord.
when sitting in a public transportation along a bumpy 3rd world country road you need to manspreadSometimes I feel grateful to live in a third world country, we got so many actual problems that we don't have time for this kind of craziness.
You'd think that but in my third world country you get people complaining about manspreading while less than 2 hours aways from that city people can still exchange women for cattle.
