Admittedly I am a little shit. No denial there. My less endearing qualities being my ever cheery disposition and my temper.
I ordinarily would let something like this go – but I am nominating a fellow writer for a Douche award. He is a brilliant writer – but he is an ass. He makes my narcissism look like a passing bit of grumpiness. I will leave out his name – but he knows who he is, which is all I want. (I know, childish, right?)
Thread goes as follows:
… My intention was both to be spiteful and jab at you – just so we are clear. But if you are going to quote me incorrectly then take away the option to reply …just seems a bit… limp?
Am I supposed to envy your grandiose disdain of my grammar? Because its not on par with yours, is that it? I hate to burst your bubble – but yours is hardly perfect either in your comments and responses to people who shove their heads up your ass (which incidentally you are very good at appreciating in a way that makes them feel worthy.)
Vain arrogance. Pseudo intellectual bullshit. YOU are what I don’t like about humanity. You see… I am a narcissistic little shit – obnoxiously so – but I make an effort to be friendly, at least. I write for pleasure, and not reward or follower count. I am grateful that I don’t have people gushing over me like you have – oh what a struggle it must be to keep your ego and perfect facade in check. I have never claimed to be far above anyone. I have said what annoys me – but placed myself above? No. But then again I haven’t been petty enough to belittle someone based on their grammar either. I will say that it is interesting that you are less composed in an argument than you are in your preened and pruned writing. Do you spend a lot of time grabbing for perfection?
You don’t appreciate vulgarity? I don’t appreciate being misquoted. I say what I mean, and I mean what I say. So when you assumed I was making it personal, I probably was – but it was a knee jerk reaction to you addressing me like I was in fact, beneath you. The ‘spirit’ of your comments was not misinterpreted. You are an ass. A brilliant writer – but still an ass.
I have been on this site now for a while, and you are the first person I have had this reaction to. Feather in your cap perhaps. Well spoken. Well read. Charismatic. Well done. Oh, and excellent grammar. Sharing a playground with a fellow self absorbed narcissistic – less well read, less well spoken kid with awful grammar? Oh the tragedy.
Food for thought.
Please, accept this award.
You judgmental bastard.
