Jer-ry! Jer-ry! Jer-ry!

This guy's job is harder than you think

Friday I logged onto the forum and saw this:

Why would someone who you thought was your friend text your husband suggestive PM? This person doesn't know the harm they have done. I hope it was worth it. Oh, [name of another user]!!

This is obviously terrible and devastating for the wife of the message recipient and she has my sympathies. But this blog isn't about her. It's about me and what I've had to deal with for the past four days. I thought the bare derriere episode was bad. The user using my photo for some unseemly photo shopping was pretty rough. But nothing comes close to the mess that I'm dealing with now.

It should be mentioned that the offender and the offended in  this situation have been pretty quiet. It's every other member who has lost their freaking minds. Here are some things they've said, I mean written, to each other:

I swear...I'm going to do a fly by and open up a can of whoop ass..., [name of user]... Is sooooooo overdue.

Hey, you want to play cyber-footsie, that's ok ... but you don't do it with a friend's husband under any circumstances.

This one is in response to my post saying this should be dealt with in private: Atta boy Meg, try to sweep this under the rug by suggesting this should be handled privately,screw that, why hide the truth?????

If someone's marriage can be broken up that easily....over something stupid like wasn't much of a marriage to begin with, now was it? Nothing like making a mountain out of a molehill....LOL. Get a friggen' life, will you?

I'm grateful my daughter isn't a skank!

In response to the thread above: If you had one, she'd probably be a self righteous prick who sticks her nose into everyone's business, just like her mama....

You get the point.

In my mind I see these full-grown women lined up on opposite sides of a room,  yelling these remarks at each other, throwing heavy blunt objects and eventually throwing punches. It would be a kind of entertaining train wreck if my job weren't to stop the conflict. It's not going well. For every thread I lock, a new one starts. For every member I threaten to ban, another starts a different fight. And for every hour that goes by, I get more messages from users telling  me how poorly I'm handling this.

Help me, internet. If you were me, what would you do?


  1. Hah. Women don't fight like that face to face. Remember the movie Mean Girls?

  2. "Oh no, I did not leave the south side for this"


Don't be shy.
