Good save. Not.

Yesterday I was telling Jason about how I had been getting a lot of hits off a newspaper from another place. I looked into it and discovered that this newspaper writer/blogger had listed me as one of her favorite blogs. We were talking about what a small world it is and how blogging had brought people closer than they could have been otherwise.

Of course with the good comes the bad and I told Jason,

"Can you believe that someone referred to me as a C U Next Tuesday in my comments the other day?"

And he said,

"Oh yeah. I totally believe that. But why?"




I stared at him with my mouth agape.

"I mean," he said quickly, "not that you ARE ONE. It's just that people are mean."


Yeah. Okay then.

No way. What C U Next Tuesday person had the nerve? the gall?

Allie Bear said...

Insert foot in mouth, Jason.

LOL

People are so unbelievable, you know I've been called the C word too. I don't know what it is about the internet that makes people think they have the right to be so mean. If I didn't like someone's blog I wouldn't read it, not leave rude comments on it, but you know, some people have class and some people don't.

Open mouth, insert foot. Way to go Jason. At least he realized quickly what he said.

Kimberly said...

Silly boy.

AnnieM said...

Nasty person, nasty mouth (probably nasty C, too). Jealousy does crazy things to people.

Nice cover Jason!

I just went back and found the C-bomb comment (cause I'm all CSI like that). Um, is it possible that your in-laws have figured out the interwebs, and are leaving you vitriolic comments? Wouldn't that be a DELICIOUS twist to the story???
(I need a life.)

Do you ever do anything except complain about your husband and how stupid he is?

Misty said...

ok... i too had to go all Nancy Drew on your blog and find the comment. (I totally thought of Atonement, when I read your post. Have you seen that? That horrible scene with the letters as large as life... Anyway) I agree with your CSI friend who said it was his family. 150% sure it was. It was worded too "on the offense" to be someone uninvolved. His sister maybe???

Sarcasta-Mom said...

Man, I take a week off and all kinds of stuff goes on in your life :)

Men- Open mouth, insert foot.

B&K said...

Our C U Next Tuesday dork lurks once again in anonymity in the comments . . . geesh.

It's been a while since we've heard from ol' Anony-mous. Must have just gotten released from the institution. LOL

Christie said...

haha, I totally just got that. Not enough coffee today.

with fame comes douchebags. boo douchebags

side question- how do you know where you're getting your hits from?

Doug said...

Anyone who actually reads your blog knows better than to ask. Before you started the occasional funny poking fun at Jason story you had to reassure us readers that he indeed was not perfect and occasionally list some of his less than perfect traits.

Though we all know that's just so all available female readers don't come try and stalk your wonderhubby.

Each of us get two families.. the one we're born into and the one we choose. Jason seems quite happy with his choices. They need to learn to respect that.

I'm really angry at the anon person. YOU SUCK, Anon. Someone said that? I'm sorry. People are so stupid.

Open mouth, insert entire lower half of body. :)

Tara said...

bwahahaha Jason cracks me up. I really think he would get along famously with my husband. Really.

And I think you must do far better than I do when you get nasty comments. They make me feel ill and I suddenly start debating whether or not to become Amish and leave the world of the internet behind. But then I remember people are jerks to my face too. And since I have kids I can't very well become a complete hermit. SO I hit delete and form a huge long rant about them in my head that I never publish. Jerks.

Jana said...

It cracks me up that "anonymous" continues to read your blog every day... cause seriously "anonymous" get an effen life. In the famous words of my teenage sister...
"keep on hatin, b*&ch, cause you're makin me famous" or "Don't hate me cause you aint me." Sorry I am really not up on my "urban" lingo so I have to rely on my 18 year old sis for it. So anyways, I love you chick. And so do lots of people. You are SO NOT a c word.

Jenski said...

Phew - good save for Jason!

Stephanie said...

Okay it took me reading it like three times to get what that meant, but in my defense I have had a rough day.

Wow I can't believe the meaness from someone you don't even know. Don't like me, don't read.

Your husband is funny, my husband would say something similar, he always has his foot in his mouth.

When I was 13 my mom and my aunt took my cousin and I out to lunch and they said that word (in reference to a joke they heard the night before by some comedian) and I asked very loudly "What's a C*nt?" They were very embarrassed and there were plently of stares in our direction.

Hey, I bet that was me! I just finally added you to my favorites. Sorry I don't comment much here, but I will try to be better. I love your writing.

amanda said...

That made me snort. Men, huh!

Angie said...

I'm amazed at a number of things. . . one being the number of people in your corner. The other is the insidious hatred that comes from people who are too afraid to admit who they are.

kittyconcerto.com said...

Someone said that about you???

EE said...

I am so lame... It took me like 10 minutes to figure out the C U Next Tuesday thing...ugh!

HeatherAnn Fragglehead said...

Who in the world would call you a C U Next Tuesday? You're the most un-C U Next Tuesdayish person I've ever met?

I'm all behind. That's what I get for neglecting the blog world.

I love you.
