Oh the humiliation.
Then yesterday….Oh, the shame. I went by my old work to pick up my T4 tax form. As I stand there I’m chatting to one of my old bosses a client walks in. Being in the familiar atmosphere of my old job I just click “ON” to work mode. “Hi, how are we doing today?” with a great big friendly ass smile on my face. Of course to this guy I was a total stranger, unconnected with the clinic. I turned around quickly. “Stop hitting on our clients,” my ex- boss says. “I can’t believe I did that,” face palm. I usually answer that straight guy bullshit “I’m okay with gay guys so long as they don’t hit on me” by saying “Why would we?” No doubt this guy thinks I was doing exactly that. No dude, I’m just a loser who forgot he doesn’t work here anymore.
Last, wow, yesterday was a harsh day,
My friend broke up with his boyfriend of about a month, then got mad a day later seeing him in “MY club”. How dare he? And with his new fuck buddy. *Sigh* It is hard to be supportive when your friend is being an idiot. You broke up, get over it. Gay bars are vile places for the newly broken heart. There is something about a room full of all your past mistakes that make you feel more lonely. Oh, wait…. is that guy new?

Okay, my war on Google+. I personally felt the drama hilarious, but it is rather long, and I apologize in advance. This whole pardon the term flame war has been going on for over a week and I stayed out of it. The funny thing is the WHOLE person this is directed at has long since blocked the other guy, but he still insists on posting shit about it.
So D1 is a gay comic book writer, and D2 is…. well a two faced twat. D1 put up a notice about a week and a bit back saying “Hey, I don’t know you all, But I have three circles. LGBT news, Erotic comic book art or filth.” D2 asked to be put in all 3. Now keep in mind that is what it was termed. A FILTH circle. Make no mistake he knew what he was getting into just as I knew when I signed up. So less than a day later another “friend” of both D1 and D2 complained that he was getting porn in his incoming feed (not from D1) and D2 piped up that he too has been getting offensive material in his feed and if ANYONE sent him porn that he would report the TOS violation to google. Seeing as he signed up for a circle and that D1 had then put not only himself but his other circle sharers in danger a single word described his opinion of D2. “Cunt”
So D2 is still bitching about it. And some have tried to stay out of the way. I have until recently. I don’t know if it has to do with my low tolerance to bullshit, and the fact that I hate whiners who will not accept responsibility. He chooses NOT to block these images, instead he reports them and “asks” to be uncircled. Well only those in his circles are going to see this request, if they see at all. My feed has over a thousand posts a day. I was going to passive-aggressively ask him to put me in a whine free circle, but then decided not to be bitchy and just give my opinion as an outsider.
Okay, I am sorry, but if you agree to be in circles THEN change your mind why should it be on someone else to remove you? Is that not YOUR call then to block those images? I go days without going into my google (and no I do not post porn), but if I miss your message why does that make me the bad guy? You have the option to block. Quit making your feed someone else’s responsibility. Man up and take the responsibility for your own feed. JMHO.
I had no idea that I was then to be at the centre of the shit storm.
The back and forth about the options of not opening your incoming at work and shit back and forth was fine until some DOUCHEBAG compare it to rape.
I clearly described how I exercised my responsibility to remove myself from those I no longer wanted to be part of by asking the people to remove me, since only they could do so. Perhaps you missed reading that part.
You’re right that I have the option to block someone who does that when I see them in Incoming. I also have the option to report and block, just as G+ asks us to. I have chosen to exercise that option.
By the way, thanks for adding two more terms to my list of things I’ve been called at the end of paragraph three of my post. I’ve edited it to add “two-faced” and “whiny” to the list. Bless your heart.
