When gays get so angry about a chicken sandwich, it is because Chick-fil-A has given around $5 million to fight to discriminate against us. When we praise brave Eagle Scouts who give up their badges in protest of the Boy Scouts of America’s prejudice, it’s not about scoring political points; it’s because there are kids in dens who are being taught to believe that they are less than equal. When we rant about the pastor who preaches that gays should be thrown into a concentration camp, we scream out of fear.
And our fears are justified — in the last seven days, a lesbian in Nebraska was carved with a knife, a gay man in Oklahoma was firebombed, and a girl in Kentucky was kicked and beaten — her jaw broken and her teeth knocked out — while her assailants allegedly hurled anti-gay slurs at her.
So no, it’s not just about a chicken sandwich.
”—A Facebook status from my good friend Stephen Christanto. Something to think about. (via princeandres)
One time when I was 7 i went to this big department store and there was giant rugs hanging from the celling and you could move them to see more rugs, so i moved one and there was an employee sitting behind it eating a bag of Doritos and I screamed and started crying and the store gave us a free rug
it’s kind of ridiculous that we have to work our asses off for 13 years in school just to work our asses off for another 2-8+ years in college just to work our asses off in a job that we probably don’t even like, when we were born on this earth without a choice…
6, I guess I break the top in half and then eat the cookie, use my bottom teeth to drag all the frosting off at one, and then eat the bottom If I have more than one, I often pile the frosting into a ginormous heap
“You have a highly curious nature. You take pleasure in breaking things apart to find out how they work, though not always able to put them back together, so you destroy all the evidence of your activities. You deny your involvement when things go wrong. You are a compulsive liar and exhibit deviant, if not criminal, behavior.”
I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don’t have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.
No, but seriously I applaud your efforts, I really do (by the way, do not feel threatened at this point, while I probably won’t give you much attention post-this message, I am not angry at you because you have costed me nothing but time, and honestly I’m making up that cost by quoting movies and having fun at your expense now). I understand that it is tough economical times and everyone is trying to make a buck the best they can, even in less than legal ways. However, if you are going to try and scam someone you should treat that scam as your job and still try and do your best. I had a hunch this was a scam a couple emails back and that is why I stopped responding, hoping you would catch the message. Since I apparently now have a package coming in I guess I need to address this Debacle.
As I said, perhaps this would work on the elderly or the extremely naive but in modern times of snopes and google searches it was quite simple to find a horde of emails quoting exactly what you’ve sent me verbatim, and they all led to people being scammed out of their money. Now if you are in the 00.01% that just do not know how to spell, have a knowledge general business etiquette, or really knowledge of anything a person should know post-high school, and this is a legitimate job (don’t take hope here, I know it is not, but let’s just pretend I’m giving you the benefit of the doubt shall we) then I will indeed do as you have asked of me in your broken english and bad spelling/grammar/sentence structure. But first, I will have the check checked out (pun intended) and when it comes back as false (when, not if) I will be releasing it and a copy of all of our emails to my local police force and the FBI. God help you if you are as inept at computers as you are at the use of English language as they could probably find you with a compass and a pack of chewing gum at that point.
And with that I bid you adieu.
Sincerely, Johnathon Wilkes Computer Technician, i.e. Not-A-Dumbass
P.S. I’m attaching a picture of a cool looking dog. May it brighten your days before the FBI arrives.
P.P.S. The quote at the beginning of this movie is from the movie Taken starring Liam Neeson. It’s really good and I suggest watching it if you get a chance, ASAP. I’m not up-to-date on the comings and goings of prison, but I’m pretty sure they don’t have Monday Movie Night and it would be a shame to not get to see this movie before you’re locked up. Unfortunately, as the sequel does not come out for another three months I am unsure if you will be available to watch it by that time. Hopefully, the prison you are sent to has a booming cigarette economy though and perhaps you can trade a few packs in order to get a bootleg copy. Keep my address on hand and if you send me a check from prison perhaps I can cash it, keep a small amount, and send you the rest in cigarettes via Western Union.
P.P.P.S. I’m not sure about your level of intelligence or your grasp of the English language so I feel I should go the extra mile to help you understand that the last sentence in my P.P.S. is actually sarcasm. Please do not write me from prison. I have a lot of things going on in my life and while I’ve enjoyed the time I spent writing this letter, I do not want to make it a habit to keep corresponding with an idiot in prison. I work in the service industry, so I speak with enough idiots as it is.
P.P.P.P.S. The sincerely was sarcasm too. And my second job title. And pretty much this entire letter. Have a blessed day.
