Hot Water

So, after doing what prompted me to write this, I remembered a quote I had come across a while back, and had to chuckle to myself:

A woman is like a tea bag - you can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.
Eleanor Roosevelt

Hmm.... Speaking of hot water. Tossing aside the tea bag analogy, I would liken the forum I entered to be akin to a hot tub. You stick your toe in and think it's too hot, but once you ease into the water and spend some time in it, you become more accustomed to the heat and the water then simply feels tepid. So after my initial dip, I went back in and have come to yet another conclusion: I just hope that I don't get stuck in the hot tub with the guy who is talking to himself.

It's not the guy who's talking to himself you have to worry about. Although, if he talks about himself in the third person run.... fast....

Too true. However, think about this: if you are online, there is nowhere to run. At least in person there is an ass to kick.

I believe I know the forum and the guy. You are right; he has no where to hide. Even his friends and family are fed up with him. Liars and users are a dyin' breed.

Depending on the forum this is the occasional "Block" button. Then there is just good old fashion ignoring a person, which I think people fail to utilize these days. It might even be coming a lost art. =) Good luck with your tea!
