Irritated

I try not to get irritated very often, but when some jerky IT guy comes over to MY HOUSE and is completely condescending because I didn't attend Nerdapalooza this year, I get a little riled.

Mr. Computer Guy stopped by MY HOUSE to password-protect my modem and he was blocked out because the default access code did not work. This was apparently my fault because I'm a complete idiot and did not know the "technical term" for "wireless networking". After an hour and a half of his boorish behavior, I politely asked him the "technical term" for "shut the heck up." Then, I asked him to take a look at my firewall settings as I hadn't been able to access Limewire and he talks for 15 minutes about how he downloads anime movies off Limewire. In an effort to sound interested, I told him my favorite riddle:

Q. Why did the man watch anime movies?

A. Because he was overweight and lived in his mother's basement and had no friends.


Apparently, that wasn't his brand of humor. I, on the other hand, had to leave the room for a few minutes to get myself under control.

I think I'll stick to Rehlaj, my Motorola Customer Service Representative. At least I can't understand him when he calls me an idiot.

So, in other words, you being into only mainstream media, sarcastic instead of concescending, and technologically ignorant somehow makes you a better person than this guy is?

Sorry. I apparently struck a nerve. I was not intending to offend; I was venting because someone was mean to me. My knee-jerk reaction when someone hurts my feelings is to be mocking and sarcastic. Maybe I should work on that. Again, I apologize for the offense.

Girl you do not need to apologize. This your blog to release and vent!! I would be lying if I said we have not experienced a similar thing.

Yeah, Kim. Don't even listen to that first comment. What a jerk. He didn't even have the balls to leave his name on his disdainful comment.

But we know who he is and he's not on Kim's "good list"

Oh, dear. Let's simmer down, folks. It's really not of the least import what one person's opinion of me is. I just hate to think that I've hurt someone's feelings. And I've apologized. So let's just leave it at that.

Patrick said...

So you're saying you don't care that someone called you ignorant?

What a jerk. He definitely soured my opinion of Anime movies, too. Anonymous, why don't you invite her over for Anime and popcorn?
