Echoing some of the comments on this week's I, Anonymous comes this response in the form of another I, Anonymous that dropped in this morning, which may or may not be from a "grizzled, syphilitic jackal":
Dear Narcissistic, Naive, Overtly Tan & Probably Wearing Wayyyyy To Much Make-Up, Little Girl That Wrote Last Week's "I, Anonymous"... Wow! you young folks sure are hip, smart, good looking, sexy and so in demand these days. It's no wonder us "AARP" card carrying citizens admire you all and your youthful zeal. Uh, Duh! No, but seriously, You are a complete idiot and probably the most self-absorbed, delusional, little girl I have ever encountered in print or otherwise. Firstly, turn off your Fall Out Boy, remove your over-sized "Bono" style Armani glasses, cancel that next tanning salon appointment, pull that $6 coffee out of your ass, and listen up. Contrary to your tiny bubble of a life, not every single guy that says "Hi" to you, looks at you, or smiles at you wants to be your boyfriend or get in your pants!!! Sometimes people are just being nice. What a concept, huh? Imagine that. I smile, make eye contact, say "Hi", or strike up random conversations with girls I would NEVER date or sleep with all the time. Get over yourself. Oh, and thanks so much for showing us all what kind of girl you really are with that last line, "at least throw in a free drink..." You make me sick!
Follow the continuing debate here, of which commenter spartacus notes, "I seem to see the responses split on gender lines. As in, females can relate to being bothered by a guy who has no business hitting on them, and males have their shackles up because maybe they'd like to bother a girl way too pretty for them."
Pretty sure he/she means hackles, but you know.
