That people who make tentacle pron jokes get to be called adults.

You know you can at me instead of passive-aggressively posting and shit, right? 😘

But passive aggression is one of the perks of being a teenager! Also, you totally weren't the only one. And not the first either. Mr. Gibney... or was it Ms. Jones....

There was something they called food. And it had tentacles.

Passive aggressive is not always something teenagers grow out of. (Wait until roommate notes in college, those are the best.)

Was it that weird octopus/turkey/crab leg thing? Because I saw one of those and it was TERRIFYING. Also gross. Do not want to eat, ever.

If you ask my mother, I was born with it.

And you are so right, all caps terrifying.

Yeah, I'm not big on eating octopus anyways, and as much as I like green animated Cthulhu I don't really want to see what a real-life version would look like... or eat it. Ick.

It is the promise of being able to make any jokes that you wish when you are an adult that makes bearing these atrocities worthwhile.

Apparently I've been adulting wrong all these years.

Non, I think you are adulting, as you say, very well. Please, carry on.

Not really, unless you're super lame and have nothing better on your schedule.

I realize that it is hard to understand tone through text, but even you could surely understand sarcasm in my statement. Surely.

From: [identity profile] xp-echo.livejournal.com
Was that sarcasm? Are you sure? Because you may want to try a little harder next time. Or, perhaps, a little less hard.

It's hard to say when something is such a train wreck.

Oui. You are how old? Twelve? Why does anyone bother talking to you at all? It is like encouraging a tiny, yapping puppy. Aren't you at school? Go learn something. Like tact. Or general socialization.

Fourteen, Fifteen this year. I keep telling you people and you all keep forgetting. Must be hard being so ancient your brain stops working.

I'm on a study period. Right now I'm studying how bad you are at sarcasm.

Why should I remember something like this? It does not impact my life. You act like a twelve year old, not someone who is almost fifteen. Dieu, vous irriter.

Who made you boss and jury of all things age appropriate?

You speak a good game, but there you go admitting that you only care about yourself.

Thanks for putting that out there. Must be hard to pretend to care about people all the time.

Do you misunderstand on purpose? You are willfully obtuse, oui? Or it is only that you are too dense to see? It is this: You - you very specifically - have not demonstrated in any way, shape, or form that you are worth my time. You are mean - in fact, you are cruel very often. Therefore, you do not impact my life because I do not let you impact it. Why should I care about you when you care about no one but yourself? Your actions and your words say this every time you open your mouth or write in these journals.

And why, exactly, is it that I have any responsibility at all in proving myself to someone who, by his actions and words, shows nothing but contempt for pretty much anything I might find interesting or worthwhile?

Not to mention the numerous digs at my intelligence or worth.

If you want me to treat you as anything but an assh*le not worth the time to be polite or friendly to, then maybe _you_ need to think about _your_ behaviour.

I owe you nothing, in fact I owe you less then nothing and I certainly don't owe you any kind of friendliness.

Adulthood is mostly about learning to judge your audience, and keeping the jokes like that in a more private setting with friends. *shrug*

The thing about being an adult is you've lived long enough to not care that people think you're immature.

Not caring what others think is not something only for adults, of course. It is the immaturity of this group in particular that puts me off journaling, oui?

From: [identity profile] xp-northstar.livejournal.com
That is ridiculous. How do you expect anyone to respect you when you act like you have no sense in your head? Oui, yes - enjoy yourself. But 'I do not care, I do what I want' is the response of an idiot. Have reason.

JP, calm down. I didn't say 'do what you like, run wild and naked through the streets'

What I meant was that when you reach a certain level of life experience, you learn how to judge situations and people with a better degree of error to success ratio, and thus don't have to worry so much about your choices.

You can still make mistakes, of course. But there's a modercrum of intelligence in living your life how you see fit and damn anyone else as long as nobody is being harmed.

The word you mean, of course, is modicum. And oui, yes. There is some sense to not letting the opinions of others dictate how you live your life - I like men. This is not a thing I hide. I do not let the opinions of the Westboro Baptist people and their hatemongering followers dissuade me from sleeping with men.

However, you make your actions and choices readily available for public consumption, but then you do not like what others have to say about these things. Your only response so far as been, 'No one is getting hurt, therefore I do not care what your opinions are.' This is foolish.

It is simple. If you do not want others to comment, do not post things where they can see them.

I don't disagree with you. I've never been unwilling to be pulled up on bad behaviour, that I remember.

I'm currently studying to be a doctor however, so social situations sometimes disappear from my radar in the smoke screen that is my life right now.

(Another part of being an adult, however. Accepting when you make a mistake and seeking to make amends/not do it again)

I think the caring would depend on the person doing the commenting. Like you said, someone commenting just to complain about things they don't understand or have a non-agreeable attitude about and my behaviour or actions are unlikely to change.

Someone who I have respect for though? I'm not sure I would entirely change my behaviour but I might make it less public if it offended.

Sometimes there's no way to compromise though. People will make their opinion of you obvious and you just have to accept it, even if you disagree. This is what I meant when I said 'not care', which I suppose means more 'am resigned to a thing unlikely to change'

Not that anyone here has Fallen into that place, of course.
