Thank you for the input. The point is people are stupid. In further thought (considering the "I'm a female" and other nonsense), I think she thought I was making some kind of demeaning comment toward women doing the cleaning and not taking a hint that her gloves are ****ing dirty and I don't want her touching my food with them. The other point, which I thought was very clear, was should I have said, "would you mind taking off your gloves before touching my groceries?" rather than taking the other line I took, ldo.

Fair enough, but I think you may still be sore about the pharmacy thread...

How's this? Let me tell you a story about my insane brother-in-law that keeps my wife and I in facepalm.jpg territory far too often.

Dude's air conditioner goes out at the end of July last year. He decides, for whatever insane reason that only his mind can comprehend, that he does not want someone to come over and fix it (he's got a good job but lives like a college student scraping by); he'll "sweat it out" and "save a ****ton of money in the process" and he's got some "sick discipline", or w/e. The more we plead with him about how dangerous this is, the more obstinate he becomes about not fixing it, sigh...

So he lives in 100+ degree temp inside the house (when I came over with my wife to troubleshoot and try to talk some sense, I couldn't stand it for more than 2 minutes) for at least 6 weeks. We send a HVAC guy over there to check it out and he refuses to let him enter either the house, or the backyard to look at the unit... insane ****ing ass****.

My wife pleads for him to come over during a super hot day, and his dumbass tells us that his electric bill was less than $30 and he gloats to us "suckers" paying $150+ to keep our houses cool. I literally want to punch him (and I'm a nonviolent person) while sitting in our cool home. A month later, he's disorientated, has chest pains, massive muscle cramps and the paramedics admit him to the ER.

It turns out that due to his excessive sweating 24/7, that his potassium level became critically low (as in he had death looking at him in the mirror, critically low). My wife is freaking, and then he's strung up on potassium IV's, which apparently cause great burning pain, and he ultimately paid thousands of dollars in medical expenses.

When he got out of the hospital and finally got his air fixed in October or November, it cost $80, lol. I'm like, you dumb ****, have some consideration for your family; at least stay in a hotel, but I think it's possible that he's just too stupid/crazy to know this kind of stuff could happen from heat exhaustion.

That is one but of many, many lol stories. I can tell you about how and why he re-roofed his entire house all by himself, continually refusing help (and expert help), but that will likely have to wait until I get back. Holy Christ this guy...

You're right, I phrased that ambiguously. Allow me to clarify:

What I meant was that your ****wittery in general led to your containment. I'd guess it comes down to the sum total of your posting rather than one thing. I only meant to offer my opinion ("arguably") that your nutritional "advice" for overweight people was the nadir of your ****wittery. It ticked all the boxes for me... condescending, offensive, antagonistic and, most of all, completely ignorant of the facts.

I take your point however that you've been terrible in so many other threads that there will be a range of opinions on what has been your worse moment.

Though I know a lot about nutrition, I offered no nutritional advice. I did explain how the first law of thermodynamics trumps all other diet plans, though. You could use a nickel's worth, if I recall correctly.

I'm just glad LOL is finally being publicly recognized for his idiocy. Oh, btw the way, LOL, I did **** that girl. And I'm continuing to **** her. And I have to say it was a pretty ****ing awesome decision, which I don't regret in the least. The best, most kinky sex of my entire life. I have to say that was pretty unexpected for a 22-y-o girl.

Its kind of funny that the containment thread finally popped up as soon as interest in me had more-or-less evaporated.

Rasta,

You understand that people are "interested" in you when you post in OOT, and the "interest" consists of "get him to post that **** in his blog/politics instead" though, right?

Of course people aren't going to be interested in discussing that when you don't post. It's too bad you even formally had to be included in this thread as you've already agreed to containment but just broke it over and over anyway.

Its all true. The fact is that I'm a loser because of my own pride and ignorance and its ridiculous to believe that people telling me (understandably) to **** off was anything even pertaining to respect or acknowledgement of me being remotely troublesome.

LoL,

That's a mildly better story, except that you used "disorientated," which isn't a word.

On the gloved checkout lady, the "people are stupid" point is actually fairly blurry, given that you take pains to point out her "light went on" when you took the offbeat line that you did; writing it that way actually makes it unclear as to whether your point is about her initial stupidity in not realizing what she's doing with the gloves or is about her getting your point without you saying it expressly. In the former, she's dumb; in the latter, not so much.
