So..."Holy f*****g hell I need to bleach my eyes now" and "f*** me" included real criticism?
No. They were merely descriptions of reactions. They were not impetuous, bossy commands--like yours was.
I would venture a solid guess that Shades also thought it was funny. I can't read his mind though...
Yes, I thought it was funny. The entire object of my post was to catch people off-guard and make them laugh.
He didn't ask how his comments make him look disconnected and weird. He didn't ask why. He simply knocked out a knee jerk come back to my remarks.
And "Shades honey, shut the f*** up" ISN'T a knee-jerk comeback? Wow. Just, . . . wow.
I would NEVER take that as an insult. I would take that as friendly banter or in some cases, a clue that I was going off like a bottle rocket, saying too much, or what have you, never shutting up. Not a problem for me.
Well, here out west, "shut the f*** up" is most definitely considered an insult. It's about as far away from "friendly banter" as humanly possible.
