Now you can be sorry that the post is gone...or not?


Is there anybody out there?
So it turns out that amongst my lurkers I have one (actually many) who never comments, has no compliments to pass on by email and has never acknowledged that they read my blog. Well, that is the nature of lurkers and what on earth would we do for readers if we excluded lurkers. However, this lurker was kind enough to contact the relative in Dubai who's wife I was ranting about and I believe the expression that may apply here includes the words shit and fan. I was asked by the relative to delete the blog and whilst it goes against much of what I'm trying to achieve here, I have done that for him. If it bothered him that this post existed then it's the least I can do. At least I heard from a relative who never contacts me and that was nice in itself. I do want to point out here that I am deleting the post because I played the player and not the ball. I apologize for the hurt that was caused by the person being harranged about having to read the rant on the advice of a well-meaning "friend", I'm sure that I would hate to read something like that about myself. I disliked the behaviour not the person and should have remembered to make them unidentifiable.
I do, however, really hate being subjected to the third degree by people who don't take the time to listen to the answers. Especially when they make it obvious that they have no interest in the answer by looking away and beginning a conversation with someone else.
So, for the last time - I'm sorry for hurting your feelings - I'll get over being pissed off that I spent my birthday lunch it a state of deep irritation - anyway I had a terrific birthday dinner and my friends know better than to ignore my answers - them I smack! I also know what I will be doing on my next birthday - having lunch with my mates!
As for Steve Hofmeyer (I read that while Steve Hofmeyer was in hospital recently for to put his bowel back together again, he taught the nurses to play the guitar and sang to the person who shared his ward. Ah Lordy, lordy, lordy as La Lue would say: "please if I ever get sick and go to hospital and need to have my doohickey surgically removed, please holy jaybuz don't let me be there when Steve Hofmeyer is there.") I ABSOLUTELY REFUSE to apologize to him - I would still have some kind of cardiac episode if he sang to me when I was sick in the hospital!
So that's my post for the day - a kind of deletion exercise with amendments to boot. All errors and exceptions (taken and left off) will be for the readers account.
Cheerio all my loyal readers - and loyal and disloyal lurkers alike

She totally did that to me too! Also, she was really good at giving the impression that She didn't realy quite like me.


I think she's just a bit odd.

Betenoir said...

...and when she's staring at you intently she's hearing elevator music toot-toot-tooling away in her head...

Charmskool said...

Yep, the Snapdragon even commented on it. But then she made excuses for her. I just think maybe she is losing her grip. The relative's wife not Snappy.

Charmskool said...

Well, she must hear something because Nature abhors a vacuum and that's what I thought was there Bete - so thanks for clearing that up.

elizabeth said...

LMAO. Love people like this.

"- even if sometimes the red wine makes the answers a little confusing..."

I think I'm like that even without the wine ;o)

Tamara said...

I know people like that. Someone I know has cancer and this dude we know comes up to us and asks how we're doing. So she's like, "Well, I'm having chemo at the moment so it's a bit rough." And this twit interrupts her to say, "I just can't seem to sleep at night this week. I'm feeling so buggered." I mean... Is he serious?!

And I'm with you on Steve Hofmeyr. If I were anywhere near him in hospital, his medical issues would increase rapidly, along with my homicidal tendencies ;-)

Charmskool said...

Glad you got a laugh from her Elizabeth - I'm starting to think Betenoir is right and the woman has elevator music playing in her head blocking out all other sounds. I think maybe I should just never deal with her sober?
Tamara I can so identify with how you'd want to poke the dude in his eye just so he'd feel a little pain from his self-absorbed attitude. As for Steve - yowzah I'd have to be tied down to stop myself from beating on him with a heavy object if he sang near me when I was sick!

Vendetta said...

Gotta luv the ADHD!!! Always makes for interesting conversation...hehehe.

Charmskool said...

Vendetta - I have a couple of friends with ADHD - makes for fun outings too - we never do too much of one thing for long and our conversations are strangely esoteric - mostly because we end up talking about different subjects at the same time.

BecauseIcan said...

lol.. shame man.. she sounds special..

Gotta love special people.. who would we poke fun at if they all disappeared or got better??

Charmskool said...

Hi there Because - yah only this one is more annoying than special. She's sort of vaguely there but not. I'm thinking it gets worse everytime I see her - she's not funny or cute or teasable like the rest of my "special" friends. Just vague and dull and urgh......

kyknoord said...

Maybe she's also got that inner-ear infection that's been going around.

Charmskool said...

Nope - she'd have to catch it first - she's too slow to catch anything!

Don't believe a word I write said...

Someone told me Steve Hofmeyr's nearly dead...is that true?

Charmskool said...

Nope DBAWIW apparently he's on the mend and according to him and his spokesperson he's nowhere near death. So it's ok if we slag off his singing - we aren't speaking ill of the nearly dead.

Vendetta said...

bwwahahahahaaaaahaaaa! inner ear infections, steve dearest and elevator music... you guys are cracking me up.... hehehe

Charmskool said...

Vendetta you have fallen through a crack into a parallel universe. Kyk insists that I have an inner ear infection which explains almost all my unbalanced reactions to things! He's SO not right - it's a middle ear imbalance - something to do with gravel and urm...I can't remember what the doctor said but it helps if I take sea sick pills mwhahaha. As for Steve and elevator music - same thing ain't it - both nauseating, both dull, both designed to make you crazy when heard in a small space?

angel said...

lol... she may well have add or something!

Charmskool said...

Angel whatever she has it gets worse every time I see her. In a few years she'll definitely be living on her own planet.

Miss T said...

Seems she keeps asking all thoses questions because she never listens to the answers. Wants to come across as interested but isnt really

Charmskool said...

Miss T you are probably spot on. I guess actually she is just a shallow person who doesn't give a hoot but wants to be liked so she pretends to care by asking questions. She could fool everyone into believing she's genuinely nice by faking interest all the way to the answer.

sweets said...

LOL old Steve (was) had a bag of shit for two weeks and nobody even knew... hehe

your friend should be ignored after her question, all attention then given to person whose talking... :)

Charmskool said...

Sweets didn't we always know that Steve was fulla shit - The man worships the Blue Bulls lol. Yep that's exactly how I deal with the woman now - the minute she asks the question I give all my attention to the person answering. Problem is she asks these inane boring questions - maybe that's why she doesn't listen to the answers - she's already managed to bore herself.

Being Brazen said...

HA HA HA HA HA!!! ADHD makes me laugh....

expensivemistakescheapthrills said...

omg. nothing would be worse than having to share a ward with steve.

fuck, i think i'd die.

my boyfriend did the camera work for steve's show, and he said it was a bloody laugh riot.

Charmskool said...

I guess it must take some self-control not to laugh at Steve when he's crooning to you while you are attached to drips, iron lung etc

Miss T said...

Charmskool??...so have you disappeared then??

Charmskool said...

Miss T I am working so hard that it's been difficult to keep up my blogging "duties". I am planning to buy a new PC for home use and then I'll get back up to speed. Till then......

Caz said...

Steve Hofmeyer is SO HOT. I love the way he flicks that kuifie of his! Grrrowl!!
(i think i just vomitted a wee bit)

Charmskool said...

Uh Caz? You ok? Euwww! I had a mini barf just thinking about that kuif flick.

Being Brazen said...

Well it sucks that you have a demented lurker....

Charmskool said...

Nah, oh Brazen one, this particular lurker thought they were being "thoughtful?". I don't reckon I believe them tho(or agree with their point of view). Nuff said. I guess I have some fodder for a post on what is well meant and what is just plain mischief. Soon.....

angel said...

oooh... that was shitty! sorry your birthday wasn't as much fun as it shoulda been.

Charmskool said...

Hi Angel, it was shitty but the birthday was still a blast because we made up for it at the Italian Club that evening. Boy did we make up for it. I have such stunning friends that we ended up having a blast!

Ches said...

Hi, my names Ches...and I read your blog!

Charmskool said...

Hi Ches and thanks for reading my blog and for letting me know that. I love my readers and hope you keep reading.... of course I'd need to post something for you to read.. soooooon .....

Candy Grrl said...

Oh bugger...I didn't get to see 'the post'...what a let down!

People shouldn't be reading your blog if they can't handle the things you say...

I've recently changed blogs because too many knew of it & I couldn't actually say anything without wondering who read it! Hopefully it won't come to that for you!

:)

Charmskool said...

Hi Candy G, yes it is annoying and for a while I thought of changing my blog and making it by invitation only but then I decided that I would just not blog about people who I know unless I have something to say that I really have no intention of taking back or deleting or whatevah.

expensivemistakescheapthrills said...

fuck there's nothing worse than the 'wrong' ppl finding your blog and you having to delete shite. been there, done that. it's totally an invasion of your space. and bites ass.


sorry the shit hit the fan.

but there are ppl out there (me) who remember what that post said and still agree with every word you wrote.

fuck ppl who cause us to self-censor.

*end rant*

Charmskool said...

EMCT ditto! I've learnt my lesson tho'. I will definitly never again retract anything I write - I will just steer clear of comment on the behaviour of other people unless I am just never going to take it back. Like I am never going to forgive the lurker who pointed them in the direction of my blog - those motives were definitely unfriendly and mean-spirited. If they were kindly-meant then the lurker would have contacted ME and suggested that I moderate my comments hey?

sweets said...

this was posted 11 August... it's almost a month ago!!!

*sniff*

Charmskool said...

Aww Sweets now you've made me feel guilty. The new job has got me so busy my mind can't think of a single thing I want to discuss... except maybe the culture shock of working in the city again? Soon my loyal friend soon.....

sweets said...

*sigh*
*pout*

ag ok... don't have much of a choice now do i? hehe :)~

BecauseIcan said...

Oh for heavens sake man!...

Do i need to send someone over there to piss on your battery and give you something to blog about??

Talk to us!!!

Tell us what your wearing.. tell us that you have "made your problem dissapear"

Or just tell us whether you are using single or double ply.. anything..

Dont make me come back here again and find nothing,k?!

I know greek people! And they have hairy chests..serious!

Charmskool said...

Yoh! BIC that's one heck of a threat! I'm gonna write something now! Although it would help if someone peed on my chips so to speak - I'm better when I'm irritated.
