Poster: You know what? I don’t know who could not enjoy watching a beautiful sunset on the beach.
jodih: What are you talking about? I hate it when people say that EVERYONE has to like a sunset. I mean, you know, I like sun rises. And I know A LOT OF PEOPLE who like sun rises. I really thought you were open-minded than this.
Poster: Well, what I meant by my post was that sunsets are great. I don’t know how you got the idea that I meant that ALL people have to think sunsets are great. I mean, it’s a figure of speech.
jodih: I really don’t get your point. First you say that EVERYONE has to like sunsets, now you say “figure of speech.” What does a figure of speech have to do with a sunset? I think you really should think these things out before you post.
Poster: What I was saying is that I used a figure of speech - that I don’t know how anyone could not enjoy something, kinda like saying, “I don’t know how anyone could not like chcolate”. I used this figure of speech to tell of my own love of sunsets. To be honest, sunrises are fine too, but that’s really not what I was getting at in the OP.
jodih: So what is it, sunrises or sunsets? And WHY are you continuing to force sunsets upon me and everyone I know? I happen to know a lot of people who do not even like the sun, so I really don’t know what you’re getting at. And I also know a LOT of people who HATE chocolate. Why are you pushing chocolate on me and my friends? Your stereotypical ways are really sad…
poster: Wha… Huh? Where did this come from? I was talking about chocolate as an example of my figure of speech. I guess that, sure, some people might not like sunsets and sun rises, but if you read above, you will not see me saying that everyone HAS to like ANYTHING! Hey, Polycarp, what is she trying to get at?
jodih: Why are you talking behind my back to Polycarp? I think that is rude. It’s bad enough that you demand that everyone has to like a sunset just because you do, but now you talk behind my back. Well I HOPE ALL OF YOUR CHOCOLATE MELTS IN YOUR PRECIOUS SUNSET! How about that!?!
poster: Okay. Here’s the deal. Nowhere in my OP did I say that EVERYONE had to love sunsets. Please read the post. I said it is an enjoyable thing, a sunset, but I never specifically said that EVERYONE HAS to feel this way. Why are you accusing me of this?
jodih: Look, poster. It is obvious that you think that everytone should think like a few token sunset-worshippers. Well, I happen to disagree. Can’t we just disagree? I think you’re just too stubborn… I don’t understand the OP the way you worded it anyway.
Poster: We aren’t just disagreeing. You don’t understand. I never said anything about demanding other people TO DO ANYTHING! Can’t you read? Nowhere did I say ANYTHING about this!
jodih: I really don’t see your point. Oh, and not everyone likes chocolate, you know…
At this point, Poster gives up EVER trying to converse with the idiot known as jodih without the benefit of an English-to-Moron, Moron-to-English dictionary around, a fifth of Jack and a lot of quaaludes.
