NEXT POST
The perils of writing about politics on Facebook After reading the two posts I wrote yesterday evening, SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL decided that he’d had enough, but instead of just quietly cutting me adrift he decided he wanted to have the last word. SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: I want you to know I’m blocking you, asshole. Every time you write about how much you love Romney you prove you hate America and the troops. I just wanted to be the man who manned up and said FUCK YOU to your face. SEK: I think you meant “Obama.” SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: FUCK YOU! SEK: You already said that. SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: FUCK OFF! SEK: Didn’t you block me? SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: ASSHOLE! SEK: Would you like me to tell you how to block me? After reading the comments that appeared after I posted the above as a status update, SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL wrote me back. SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: You’re laughing at me! SEK: I am. SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: I can read it! SEK: You can. My feed’s public. SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: But we’re not friends anymore! SEK: My feed’s public. SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: Fuck your feed! Make it stop! SEK: So far as anyone knows, I’m mocking a generic conservative bigot. As long as you don’t comment on it no one will know I’m mocking you. SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: (comments on the previous post while I write the above, then demands) DELETE MY COMMENT NOW ASSHOLE! SEK: You wrote it. Delete it yourself. SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: I did. (he didn’t) SEK: (so I did) Good for you. SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: Now delete what you wrote. SEK: No. SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: DO IT NOW! SEK: No. SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: MAKE IT SO I CAN’T SEE IT! SEK: My feed’s public. SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: I DON’T WANT TO SEE IT! SEK: Then don’t look at it. SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: THEY’RE MAKING FUN OF ME! SEK: They are. SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: FUCKING DEMOCRATS! SEK: If you insist. SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: I DO! SEK: Good for you. SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: YOU DON’T KNOW ME! I FUCKING HATE YOU! SEK: You realize I’m going to post this too, don’t you? SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: YOU BETTER NOT! SEK: Why? SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: WE’RE NOT EVEN FRIENDS ANYMORE! SEK: Then what reason do I have not to post it? SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: ASSHOLE! DON’T DO IT! SEK: OBAMA COMMANDED ME. I HAVE NO CHOICE. SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: … SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: … SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: … SEK: That was a joke. SOMEONE FROM HIGH SCHOOL: FUCK YOU I KNEW THAT!
