In which she unsubscribed

 

I occasionally get “hate” emails and for the most part I ignore them because basically that’s part of the deal when you put your stuff out there.

 

This morning I woke up to the following email:

 

To: Webmaster

From:

Stephanie 

Message:

I want to be taken off your email list. Sadly, in the past I always

looked forward to my “All Fooked Up” posts, read them every morning in the bathtub. Funny, slight self deprecating but not so much anymore.

You keep posting it so I will bite, apparently your kids and your

therapist won’t…If you have to continue on about how bad your life

is in your family made ivory palace where your husband works and you have to possibly do laundry, and go to the gym and anymore crying that you post about – get the fuck over it!

Please take me off your email list. You were funny, now you should be happy for the husband that puts up with this maniacle behavior as of late, good kids and a list of followers because unless you get your college drug dealer back, you portray your life as pretty empty.

I miss the old Lynn….

And I thought I would address this so here goes.

 

Dear Stephanie:

You might not be aware of this but you can unsubscribe ALL BY YOURSELF just like you apparently subscribed ALL BY YOURSELF however I did take you off my email list.

I’m not sure WHY you felt the need to start my day off with such an email but for whatever reason, you did.  Let’s take this sentence-by-sentence.

To: Webmaster

 From:  Stephanie

Message:

I want to be taken off your email list.

(Stephanie, you could have done this yourself by the way)

Sadly, in the past I always looked forward to my “All Fooked Up” posts, read them every morning in the bathtub. Funny, slight self deprecating but not so much anymore. 

(Really? In the bathtub?)

 

You keep posting it so I will bite, apparently your kids and your therapist won’t…

(I don’t know how you have any ideas of what me and my kids discuss…they think I’m perfectly ridiculous and yet, they come to me for guidance and all sorts of stuff that I don’t actually share with you)

If you have to continue on about how bad your life is in your family made ivory palace where your husband works and you have to possibly do laundry, and go to the gym and anymore crying that you post about – get the fuck over it!

(Ok, I’m pretty sure that I’ve stated that THIS is a humor blog.  Would it be funnier if I said that I made the bed today, or that I mowed the lawn, or that I cleaned the pots, or that I cleaned out the garage…I don’t think so.  And by the way, I don’t think I CRY about it.  I think I make fun of it.  Do you think that people with money aren’t entitled to bitch too? Is that only for people who have a truly awful life?)

Please take me off your email list.

 (Done)

 

You were funny, now you should be happy for the husband that puts up with this maniacle behavior as of late, good kids and a list of followers because unless you get your college drug dealer back, you portray your life as pretty empty.

(Ok, I went and read this email to my husband who laughed and said, “you seem exactly the same as when I met you” so I don’t think I’ve changed.  I do have good kids and there’s nothing I hate more that bragging about them.

Would it make you happier for me to say that my kids have fabulous grades at Duke? That they are both happy and healthy and doing well?

 Would it please you if I bragged about how Daniel is applying to Harvard? And Yale?  I don’t think so.  I don’t put that stuff out there because it makes people feed BAD.  BAD about their stuff and their life.   So I CHOOSE to put out the stuff that makes me look bad, and makes it seem like ALL the shit that happens in life happens to EVERYONE, regardless of money.  So as to your “get the fuck over it” I say, WHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK THIS BLOG IS?)

I miss the old Lynn….

(She’s still right here.  You probably changed, not me)

So she has some valid points.  I bitch and whine about the stuff that happens to me.  I make fun of the fact that I’m a spoiled brat.  In NO way do I imply that I’m a good and decent person.  Therefore, I don’t know what the problem is.  Is it that I refuse to be lectured?  That even though I have barely anything I have to do that I bitch and whine about the few things I do HAVE to do?  Because that’s what I do lady.  I make fun of stuff.  But mostly, I make fun of me and honestly, if you can’t handle that then get back in the bath and wash all that sanctimonious shit off of you.   I didn’t need you to read my blog before and I sure as hell don’t now.

 

Perhaps you should report me to my sponsors.  OH YEAH!!! I don’t have any.  This is a free country so thank you for your “constructive” criticism and I’ll just file that where I file all the other “constructive” criticism.

Thanks for unsubscribing … or in this case NOT.

 

Lynn

    Oh Lynn, I love you just the way you are!

    And I got a solid giggle out of this post, just like I enjoy every single post you write. :-D

    Funny how this Stephanie wrote you an email explaining though. Probably thought she did you a big favor :D (Do I sound bitchy?) :D

    Some people should take an exam when reading anything humorous, really :))
    I’m laughing my head off when I see “serious” comments related to something intended to be funny.
    Anyway, I think she’s the soul of any party she attends :D

    You didn’t realise she was a nutjob after getting as far as the words ‘every morning in the bathtub’ – seriously.

    She probably typed this while on her Smart Phone taking care of ‘business’, because this really is sh*tty ;)

    I really don’t get people like this. Your blog is obviously you making fun of stuff in your life. What does she not understand about that? I have unsubcribed to some blogs just because they don’t interest me anymore, but I just unsubscribe. No need to make an issue and send an email about it. Hell, the fact that you blog posted about it probably gave her more power than she’s ever had before in her life. Good riddance to bad rubbish!

    • Lynn
      February 27, 2012

      i agree…of course, that’s why i didn’t link to her blog

    Sweet merciful christ, who or what pissed in her Cheerios (which, incidentally, she may also enjoy from the comforts of her bathtub)? It does seem really quite petty to compose such a collection of hatred in the hopes of ruining someone else’s day or confidence! I adore you, Darling, and clearly plenty of others do as well! In my humble opinion: Keep on keepin’ on, and if Miss Stephanie doesn’t care to be part of it, good riddance, indeed!

    You know I have to agree with Stephanie ifyou can’t appreciate the good things around you then maybe you should seek help, because this worl is a beautiful place tolive as hard as it maybe, we don’t needinconsiderate people trying to destroy what we have for our children. Quite frankly I would not like to be a child in your house you lack love in your heart. May God Bless your spouse for what he has to put with.

    Your response was perfect. I guess you know you have arrived when you piss in your own Wheaties and they don’t find it amusing. Wouldn’t you like to see the look on her sanctimonious ass for a face when she reads your response? It would be priceless.

    Come to think of it…there was a Stephanie that did the same thing on my FB page. I wonder if it is a coincidence…(Jessie had one there too) weird. She said she was going to report me…boo-f***ing-hoo for posting a picture of a puppy (I can’t help it if she saw more than that) hahaha.

    Oh my gosh, I like you. I found you in a search about bullying online, as the blogger from D***e (don’t want to give her press) told me to go “f” myself, when I questioned a motive on a post. Yikes! Wasn’t even mean, but man oh man do the Tweeters nail you fast, if you question anything! So I came here, and after I read your post on Abd and D***e, I went to your home page, and read this hilarious silly comment from a reader.

    I am not a prude, but I don’t let me kids bully each other, and I was super surprised that a million dollar uber blogger would tell a reader to go “f” themselves (using the full word…I just don’t like it in print). I was surprised, until she told it to several. I was the only one dumb enough to respond. Did not know criticizing D***ce was a no no…

    Anyway. Keep Calm, Carry on…and I will take that bitter readers spot on the rss list.

      February 27, 2012

      hahaha…well, i thought that ENTIRE escapade was flat out ridiculous on both of their parts. I don’t care if people criticize what i have to say. It’s a free world but i won’t put up the AWFUL stuff. I just felt that today especially, this particular reader could have just unsubscribed without letting me know that she hated me.

      Anyhow, welcome aboard bitter person. I love ya

    From one spoiled brat to another, “fuck ’em if they can’t take a joke”. My mom taught me that one, probably at too young of an age. Either way, we all have the right to bitch and piss and moan about the things that make our lives ridiculously stressful. the other day, I blogged about how neither of my hot tubs are working. Which could be awful, if one of the few reasons I got talked into this house was because I need the heat to detox, or could be seen as completely self-absorbed, narcissistic, and shallow. Which I can be. That’s the thing-if you don’t like my “voice”, don’t follow me.

    We don’t have to be living hand-to-mouth to have struggles. Everyone struggles. A person living in subsidized housing on assistance has it way better off than many people in third-world countries. That doesn’t mean we tell them to shut up when they cry about needing more.

    I could go on, but I’m late for a polo match.
