Theres this kid on my friends list on facebook. I like to conversate with him. He’s a pretty decent guy.
One of our conversations went something like this (this is the really simplified version!!)-
him-" To be honest, i just talk that way. A lot of our family associates with redneck-y backwoods type people."
Me- (busting his balls) “DAMN YA’LL LETS GO HUNTING PIGS!”
him- (getting offended? for no good reason when i was joking?) " Well when you say it like that you make it sound as if we just shoot them for no reason"
Really? Is that what it sounds like guys? Sounds like i made a fucking funny. Does this guy just not like me or whats the dealio? Or does he just have low self confidence and take everything personally?
The correct response was- “Hell yeah! Well not really, we actually use em for bacon( or whatever) you should come shooting with us some time.”
If someone took everything I said the wrong way, I’d probably decide to spend some time on introspection and think maybe he thought I was an unfunny jerk, then I might wonder if I struck other people this way too. And then I’d vow never to use the word conversate again.
Just because something is clear to you that it was meant to be funny, does not mean it is. Perhaps he’s just had it with your unfunny and that was the final straw. I’ll give someone a mercy chuckle only so many times before it’s time to tell them to STFU.
