A cranky opinion for
CRANKY OPINION SATURDAY
The following is the opinion of a
cranky old man who as usual has a bug up his butt.Opposing opinions are allowed, but they are wrong.As always, please, no name calling, and that
means you, you big stupid-head!
unashamedly admit to watching reality TV.I unashamedly read internet comments at the end of a story.Why, you may ask do I watch and read this
It makes me
When I am
feeling down on myself, thinking my life has been a failure compared to the many successful people
I know, I turn on the TV and watch “90
Ah yes, next
to Danielle and Mohamed, and Nicole and Azan, I am a genius.What?You don’t know these people?You
need to tune into this show.It will do wonders
for your self-esteem.“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” might
pump you up a bit as well.
I love TV,
when I feel low, TV lifts me up.
is the internet.Any story on the
internet, political, sports, economic, or entertainment will solicit nasty, negative,
racist and simply mean comments.A story
about a faithful dog that saved a baby from a fire will eventually elicit
“F*ck the stupid dog, that baby is
now probably going to grow up to be a libtard on the government tit!”
“If it was not for friggin
republicants, there would never have been a fire, they are against all government
I read these
and I feel like a superior human being.
I just read
an article about a 22-year-old recent college graduate.She was feeling a twinge of guilt during
Thanksgiving, because she had so much and others had so little.She decided to give a little to those in
need.She tweeted that she was gong to give
to the St. Jude Hospital for Children, a very worthwhile charity.She vowed to donate 25 cents for every “favorite”
her tweet received and 50 cents for every “retweet.”
this time of year is about giving -
this year, I am giving back to St. Jude & the families who are supported by
their amazing services
every favorite : $.25
every retweet : $.50 go give. go st.
Her tweet went
viral.Based on “favorites” and “retweets”
she would have to donate $200,000.She was
only planning on giving $1000.
announced that she could not match as she had promised, and asked instead for
others to donate while she was going to give $1000.
funny, and still very thoughtful and admirable in my opinion.
exploded with negative comments.Because
she tweeted without putting a donation limit on her promise she was called a
welcher and a ne’er-do-well!
from an older generation have a saying… so you wrote a check you can’t cash did
ya? It is a shame… St Jude is a great cause! Too bad you decided to make a
commitment that you can’t honor.”
ASSHAT!SHE DID NOT HAVE A LAWYER READ
HER TWEET AND ADVISE THAT SHE STIPULATE A LIMIT ON HER DONATION!
That is just
a tame version of how stupid internet trolls can be.The young lady wanted to do something nice,
she did do something nice but did not anticipate the power of a tweet gone
viral, and a bunch of d-bags just have to put in their two cents and berate her.
The preceding was the opinion of a cranky
old man, and not necessarily that of management…Mrs. Cranky.
