This morning I received the following garbagetribe in my email box in response to my brilliant post about hate blogs.
Hi, Judith, I read you're post, "Bah your hate blogs" this morning and really appreciated it. I wish though that I never had to hear the phrase, "Sorry, I'm not fucking perfect." I lost my dad recently, and this is something he used to say all the time. It really made me feel like I couldn't ever raise any complaints or like I was making ridiculous demands on him when I was just asking him to drive me to school or stop creating emotionally abusive cults online. Needless to say, we had a complicated relationship, but it's been rough. I just lost my job, and I keep wanting to ask my roommate to pay her share of the rent but I'm afraid she'll just be like "Sorry, I'm not perfect!" and then get me evicted somehow. I'm not really sure what to do. When someone brings up something that I do that bothers them, I've started trying to just really listen to them and be responsive instead of just screaming "Sorry, I'm not perfect" and punching them in the face. It's been difficult. That phrase just brings up a lot of different feelings. Talking about it helps though. Thanks for listening.
LOL YOUR TRASH GRAMMAR! It's "your" not "you're," moron. It clearly states on one of the fucktrillion wikipedias--which are required reading before sending words to my publicly posted email address--that you must learn all grammar rules and proofread through your grieftears every word you submit to me.
I'm a human person, douchetroll. You are welcome to your opinions, but you are not welcome to climb into my inbox and tell me what phrases I should or should not use. Neither are you welcome to accuse me of holding various positions for which I have expressed no explicit support, such as that I advocate use of the phrase "Sorry, I'm not fucking perfect" simply because I used it. As you can readily see, I did not use the phrase "Sorry, I'm not cocktailforking perfect," which would have indicated clear endorsement of the phrase. All my sentences should be taken as both clearly, concretely set in stone and as noncommittal, depending on any new facts that come to light.
