Soooooo Unnecessary

Saturday night Frank and I went out on a date. I love when we get to do that! First we went to Guitar Center because he had some cracked symbols and when we got our tax refund check, we had tagged money to replace them. So we spent 45 minutes in the store, got what we needed and then headed across the street to have dinner at the Outback.

When we got there, I opened the door while looking behind me to ask Frank something and smashed my foot with the big wooden door. I ripped off half of a nail and some skin and scraped up my pinky toe pretty bad. I was NOT a happy camper. It was all uphill after that because we were seated right away, had an awesome waiter and got a free dessert. I'm not sure why we got the free dessert but our waiter claims he wanted to treat us since we were his last table of the night and he knew we were having a night out without the kids. Who was I to argue? Quality guy. Next we stopped at Walmart for a few things. I got myself some new jammies and I'm telling you, I was in a very good mood.

Then I got home and checked my e-mail.

Can I just say that I look at 300 blogs a day with Entrecard. I don't read them all but I do read a LOT of them. Some are funny, some are not. I agree with what some people write, others I do not. I only leave comments when I have something POSITIVE or HELPFUL to say. Some guy who apparently just started blogging (I know this because I went to his profile) left me a rather mean comment. I rejected it but I'm like, why? Why do people just want to go and leave mean comments? I don't get that.

I've seen some really offensive stuff on blogs and you know what? I just don't go back. I don't feel the need to write something to hurt someone's feelings, I just know to not go back to that site. When I first started blogging I had written a post about my horrendous travel experience with Jet Blue. I mean, it was really bad and it took a lot of time out of my already short weekend trip because of all of their delays. So I wrote this post and some person just left me a very lengthy rant about how I should shut up and stop whining! Excuse me, but who are you and who are you to tell me to shut up?

If you don't have anything helpful to say, then don't leave a comment. I don't comment on your site telling you that you're stupid or that your blog is stupid so how about showing the same courtesy? Honestly, being mean just for the sake of being mean is totally unnecessary.

Not only unnecessary, but how do those ppl have time for that? I'm doing good to have enough time to make a few random comments on some of the blogs I like, much less complain about something I don't like. shesh ppl, get a life!

I'm picturing the heavy wooden door of the Outback running over your foot. Ouch, ouch, ouch. Glad you were able to salvage the date and not wither in pain the whole time.

I don't get hate mail (guess I'm not that interesting) but I'm getting a little tired of the spam that just copies someone else's comment or posts something so irrelevant it's creepy.

I have yet to get any mean comments on my blog, but I had someone once who left mean comments about me on mutual friends blogs. It's such a waste of time and energy.

And yay for free dessert!

Who are these people to condemn you for complaining on YOUR BLOG! If they don't like what you have to say they don't have to read it. Just like their comments. If you don't like them, you don't have to post them! I haven't gotten any nasty comments, just spam/anonymous ones.

I love your blog! It's entertaining.

Glad you had a good night out!
Don't worry about one ignorant twit with a useless rant. If he's like that in real life, no one will ever give him a free dessert.
Sucks to be him.
