Comment of the Day


I kicked off my Monday with this gem of a comment on a four-and-a-half year old post (bold-ed to convey the emotion):

MUST you use profanity?? It is terrible you used the sh-word! That is so crude and offensive and unladylike! Do you talk this way in real life? Here I am always chastising the GUYS for using crude language because ladies are on the Internet and we can READ what they type, and so it REALLY drives me nuts when a woman swears! We will never get the guys to respect women and understand that a gentleman shouldn't swear in front of a lady, as long as LADIES swear. Nobody should swear! But of course they guys all see women like you using such language, and so they think THEY have to swear, too, for fear of being called a sissy. And they think that women don't even mind profanity! How sad is that??? Why didn't anybody else speak up about the crude, unladylike language you used?? 

1. It would never occur to me to visit someone else's blog and leave a rude comment. That's like going to a party and taking a shit on the sofa. 

2. I can think of many much more offensive words like "Tea Party movement," "voter ID laws," "chevron," and "polyblend."

3. How wonderful that mental health care is now required to be covered by insurance plans!

Growing up, of all my mother's friends, Norma Browne was my favorite. She drank vodka on the rocks with a shot of water and an olive. She chain-smoked Lark cigarettes. She had multiple ex-husbands and an amazing collection of quilted Chinese silk tunics. And every third word out of her mouth was "fuck."

Trust me, she was a lady, and she commanded respect.

Ah, pure entertainment for a bleak Monday. Thanks for sharing the hilarity.

Sarah said...

"The sh-word"? Seriously? Oh and I for one always enjoy seeing women getting the blame for influencing the (in the comment writer's opinion) "bad" behavior of men. If only women were more ladylike, men wouldn't be so GD disrespectful to us!

Cathy Wall said...

OMG!!!! Can you hear me laughing??? Your retorts are priceless. This is the second nasty comment I have read today, wtf? Do people have nothing better to do?

Keri said...

It's so wrong it's right. I'm sorry you forced her to read your profanity laden blog. What the fuck were you thinking??? ;)

Love your response and can't believe someone would say that to you! If you don't like it don't read your blog. I love that you are 100% you when you write! Never change.

Did you read her Blogger Profile? Bat-shit crazy cat lady if I ever saw one....the mental health thing was spot on.

Peeke said...

Ok, I just perused her blog, and yes, she is a bat-shit crazy cat lady.

My poor husband. I never realized he felt such pressure to keep up. He'll never have my skills, but he surely does try.

court. said...

hahahah! I LOVE you.

Here's what i'm gonna do.

I'm gonna walk into that person's living room, wearing a poly-blend chevron jumpsuit (yes, that's right) with a Tea Party button on my lapel, and take a giant shit on her ligne roset sofa.

Camilla said...

oh for fuck sake!!

recently I was in a really posh showroom & ran into another designer I know who introduced me to someone she was with as 'This is Camilla, she swears like a sailor too!'
I was so proud!
Oh & I can be a lady - when I wanna be!

Your reply is priceless and much appreciated.

BAHAHAHAH. What I love about the interior design blog world is that we're all nice to each other, give compliments and are generally positive. If you don't have something nice to say you don't bother commenting it! OY.

chanda said...

bitch needs to get herself over to apartmenttherapy where humorless fascists will protect her from naughty words and good design.

That was fuckin' perfect. Thanks!

Raina, check under your couch for an American Girl doll..

Interior Design Musings said...

Comments like hers are a total downer to me. How you handled this - total genesis my friend! Why do you live on the other end of the country?! Weekly lunches with you would so brighten my world! M.
