You know, sometimes the Internet acts like a huge party wherein you run into all manner of folks you haven’t seen in ages. For instance…this morning a friend sent along a link to Bash.org, the oh-so-lovable repository of choice irc/chat quotes and it was like catching up with an old drinking buddy. How’ve you been? What have you been up to? What? You have all sorts of new stories to tell me! Huzzah!
Seriously, go read through Bash.org. It’s just funny. Sure, like that buddy at the party most of ’em are probably staged or flat out faked, but they make for a good story anyway..
DragonflyBlade21: A woman has a close male friend. This means that he is probably interested in her, which is why he hangs around so much. She sees him strictly as a friend. This always starts out with, you’re a great guy, but I don’t like you in that way. This is roughly the equivalent for the guy of going to a job interview and the company saying, You have a great resume, you have all the qualifications we are looking for, but we’re not going to hire you. We will, however, use your resume as the basis for comparison for all other applicants. But, we’re going to hire somebody who is far less qualified and is probably an alcoholic. And if he doesn’t work out, we’ll hire somebody else, but still not you. In fact, we will never hire you. But we will call you from time to time to complain about the person that we hired.
