I got Into a Facebook Argument with an “Election Official”
So those that have read this blog and heard me on the radio, and read my Facebook wall, will know I sometimes post funny stuff. Just this morning, I was feeling kind of fed up with the political process, and posted a meme that was meant to be satire and humourus. Well, one election official thought it wasn’t and decided to “educate” me.
The post to me was pretty harmless, or so I thought. I didn’t know I was making a mockery of the whole voting process and making this more difficult for over worked election officials, who get no love from us, the voters. But hey, who wouldn’t want a Jedi in office, right? Well, obviously not this women, who’s name I promised to keep undisclosed, because I seriously think no one should have to put up with a person like this. But here is how the exchange went down..
Childish? Me? Why yes, I am! But that wasn’t the thing that really flipped my switch. It was just the whole tone of the post, like she was condescending, and just had to educate me, the childish man. Well, that didn’t quite sit well, so I had to make my feelings knows.
After which, it appears she took umbridge, yes dare I say umbridge that I was not receptive of her teachings. And again, had to “educate” me to the folly of my ways. FML.
I could choose to be grown up? Who the “F” is posting to who’s wall about a humorous piece of satire? And I like how she had to tell me again she was an election official. There is a name for people like you in the Ham Radio circles, who find themselves self important and above all others. We call you “Whackers”. And the interesting part is, you’re not even a friend of mine! You’re a friend of a friend! What the hell? OK lady…
To all off which the following occurred..
She has since not posted to my wall. And if she does, I will take a screenshot, delete it and then promptly tweet or post on Facebook thoroughly mocking her. What I told her about my feelings on people like her, is what I believe, and I think is part of the problem with politics today. I don’t like to post about it, but this person, just doesn’t seem to get it.
