I just wasted 20 minutes, spread out over an hour thanks to work interruptions, preparing a stellar rant about how much I hate people, thanks to a crazy woman who wanted to chat with me on the street. no, really, she came up to me as I was smoking, asked me if I was taking a break, I said yes, she said she wanted to chat, I told her to move along and the love fest continued until she followed me into starbucks and tried to pay for my coffee. not homeless, not crazy as in street person crazy. it ended with me alerting a cop and the guy who works in my lobby to stop the loon from following me.

I then moved on to such sadness as people who wear baggy pants because they think it looks cool (it doesn't, you look moronic waddling around, trying to keep your pants from falling) and people who stick objects thru manmade holes in their faces. this makes normal people uncomfortable as we figure you are some kind of escaped side show attraction and you might be dangerous.

anyway, I put up this stellar release of frustration, resulting from my dealings with moronic people, too much work, too little sleep and the apparent atkins style blockage I'm suffering from and I hit post new topic and what happens?

there's a post with that subject, please hit the back button and try again.

bye bye post.


dammit SO, fix that. make it automatically save the post as a draft or something. my lost post was brilliant. it offended so many people and it made me feel good. it would have been a nice addition to the rant section. of course I specifically told people not to respond because I'm so not liking the people today and there's nothing anyone can do or say that will make me go "hmmm, maybe people aren't so bad after all."

oh and get the blogs back so I can stop wasting the members' time with my posts.

ok, off to hit the reply button. better hit draft first.


just in case.

Well thank you for that...
If I had a nickel for everytime that happened to me..I might just be able to afford a new computer...
I share your frustration.
Especially when I see multiple posts of current events with different titles.
I don't give a flying fart in space if it is posted in a different forum..if it is the same story...it should not be posted twice.
That being said..
There is no way on earth when you create a rant, that someone has posted exactly what you just typed in. Ever.
I agree, let it be saved somewhere..especially if it is simply a matter of changing the title.

you have no idea how funny the first post was, which just makes me all the more angry. I just didn't have it in me to go into full the detail, the conversation I had with this woman.

the best way to sum it up is with the following lines from our talk.

me: I don't want to chat
her: but we are chatting
me: no, you are, I'm thinking of punching you
her: that's not nice
me: I'm not nice
her: sure you are, that's why I'm chatting with you
me: I don't want to chat

and so on....

Was she at least hot or decent looking?

You know what you should have done, you should have gotten down on one knee and proposed to her, that would have sent her running for the hills.

But no, you ignored her, so that made her want to work harder for your attention. See, you should have done what U did if you wanted to attract her, not scare her away.

People want things they cannot have. Women love a challenge, so don't be one with her.

she was probably in her 50's or early 60's and rather plump and jolly in a merry christmas kinda way

it wasn't anything like that. the original, lost post had more details so I can understand your thinking here. this was merely a woman looking to talk to me. nothing flirty or sexual. she was just this cheery woman who wanted to chat. I was annoyed to no end but I never once felt threatened by her, she didn't appear to be dangerous or "crazy" in the off her meds kinda way. she was rather rational in her thinking. drunk perhaps (it is st. patricks day) but she wasn't in the green attire that the majority of the day's drunks are wearing and she is far older than the majority of the revelers staggering around outside.

Aw sick, never mind haha. You did the right thing. I bet she wanted you to do her a "favor" :shk: in return for the coffee. That's how these people try to get you. Unless she was genuinely nice.

Lol, I understand now. I thought maybe she was hitting on you, but it was just some fat old annoying lady.

Did you really say that to a woman? Saying you wanted to punch a woman?

Note to self: Never approach Crakeur for friendly conversation. Especially when his body is being deprived of carbohydrates thanks to Atkins.

Could you have inadvertantly sat in the Pâté? Mayhaps the poor thing thought she had a pheromone thing going?

Solution? On days like that just spray on a little of this; available at all fine sporting goods departments.


Guaranteed pariah.



Thanks for the chuckle.

I really did. Wrong as hell but this woman was way too jolly and chatty and all I wanted was my 7 minutes of solitude in the noise of NYC. I asked, I begged I pleaded, she persisted. For the record, I'd never hit a woman (it would take a whole lot for me to hit a man). Again, I'd never hit a woman.

not unless I was sure I could take her.


(crakeur is kidding)

as I said, she wasn't flirting with me at all. if she were, I wouldn't have been so bothered by it and I certainly wouldn't be posting here about it. That's a compliment, no matter how horrible the person might be.

no, she was just some random lady. I only mentioned she was on the heavy side because I was asked if she was hot. she wasn't ugly. just heavy. not my type. I don't have a type. I'm married. my wife is my type and, since she's the only woman on the planet, my type is set in stone. I know this because it's all I hear as I drift off to sleep every night.

Ok. That makes me feel better. But I know how it is on the Atkins diet. Tried it for a couple of weeks after having my son. I wanted to go around punching little old ladies on the sidewalk, too.


Just a side note to maybe cheer you up. Judging by your avatar, it doesn't seem you need to be doing any dieting.

And now that you have clarified and I am no longer afraid of you, yes the thread title post deletion thing is frustrating. It would be nice if it at least gave you a notice that there is a similar thread title so you can adjust things accordingly instead of losing everything.

My cousin tried the Atkins diet and for some reason he couldn't hold in his bowels.

I'm not joking.

Really? It would seem like it would cause constipation more. TMI and totally off topic but I had to ask!

Well well well..
After receiving a complaint from Mr Crakeur about this unwarranted harrassment,I contacted my buddies in the skynet spy satillite corporation and have managed to acquire a photograph of the perp'.

Answers to the name Florence and should not be approached.



We can see why you were distraught now

they did something wrong. if you need verification of this, ask Dr. Love. he started a thread about it a while back.

The Atkins diet really does work.. The only drawback being the nausea(ketosis) and the unending craving to eat something crunchy/crispy..

I chewed through about a kilo of biltong it got so bad.. it drives you crazy..

Maybe she was God disguised as a plump, cheery, middle aged woman!

You told God you wanted to punch her in the face!

For grins, you should go outside tomorrow at the same time and see if she shows up again!

I don't know why, but your story reminds me of the movie, "Oh, God!"

I don't go no carb/low carb for the weight loss. been there, done that, dropped 80 lbs. now I do it because I feel better and because I don't have the need to snack and put on the blubber as I sit in my office day and night.


@enthralled fan, I'm always running out for something. it's how I keep my sanity. if she's seeking me out, I'll see her again. then I'm getting a restraining order. if it is god, more so.
