To the Anonymous Jerk Who Left The Comment at 4 AM



I gotta vent. Y'all ready??
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I've been blogging now for about 16 months. I love it. I really do.

I've met some absolutely wonderful people in the Blogosphere and I am truly thankful for the friendships I have made. There are some amazing people out there.


However, I've always been fairly "closed" with my real identity (only a few know my "real" name), and I like to keep it that way since blogs are, by nature, a very public medium. In fact, as most of you know, I don't even blog about my kids all that much.... and when I do, I never use their full names.

Last night (at 4 AM), I got a really nasty, mean-spirited and hate-filled comment from "Anonymous". (Of course. Ugly comments are always from "Anonymous", right? They never have the cojones to identify themselves....) He/she read a post that involved my children and said I needed to "get a life" and they went on to say they thought I was a "mother from hell".

What the.....???

Now, even I, on my MOST insecure day, know I'm a damn good Mom, and I know I have a pretty amazing life....

But, again, what the heck?!
I just don't get it.

it's easy to spout hatred when you don't have to expose yourself. lowlifes are everywhere - and they're breeding!

delete it, vent, shake it off....smile!

Well, you know it was from some idiot who is most likely 12 (mentally) himself anyway.
You have to ignore dingleberries like that. They have nothing better to do than act ugly. He/she is probably sitting alone in their parents basement still trying to recover from teenage acne and wearing a star wars tshirt with a star trek blanket wrapped around to keep warm. :)
I had some comments from some crazy that wants to offer me some bank loans this week...from India I think.
Sick bastids*** they are everywhere.

Small minded ass, at that. If someone wants to send an evil message they should at least leave their name. I am sorry because the little you have shared about your kids only reveals how much you do love and nurture them...

You are not the first blogger I've read who has had an "anonymous" comment-stab-in-the-back. What a silly way to spend one's time, sending negative greetings to strangers, eh?
I say, Keep on being yourself, HWHL; that's what blogging is about. Let the anonymouses (hey, see that? anonyMOUSES...anonyMICE?) write on their OWN blogs. I think I would delete that comment and move on. And HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and yours!

ChiTown Girl said...

You mean you aren't going to share the nasty comment so we can all think anonymous is a big, fat jerk?! ;-)

HappyWifeHappyLife said...

Suz, I'm laughing at your description... you are probably right, my dear. :-)

Heeyyyy!!! I am a freak for Star Wars and a huuuuge Trekkie! No fair! :-)

With that said, I'm sorry for anonymous' comments. I'll apologize for the dumb ass because he/she will never have the salty balls to do so on their own.

You're a great Mom! Keep it up!

Jason, as himself said...

It was inevitable. We all get it from time to time; it is just part of putting outselves out there.

But the positives far outweigh those few "dingleberries" as Suz so eloquently put it.

HappyWifeHappyLife said...

But KBL, you are Cooooool, my friend! :-)

People like that make me sick. If they don't leave their name then they are just cowards.

Because of your business, you are wise not to let yourself be known on your blog. I am honored that you have trusted me enough with your identnty.

HappyWifeHappyLife said...

Don, they ARE breeding... now THAT is a scary thought!

Pumpkin Delight said...

It doesn't make sense. Why do people do that? If they don't like your blog, don't read it. It's that simple. There's no need for that!

Boquinha said...

Awwwww that's terrible, HWHL. :( I'm sorry. I agree with Jason, by the way. :)

ann said...

First time commenter on your blog, but I peek everyday. I enjoy reading your blog. It always leaves me smiling. I get the feeling that you are a lovely Mom with lovely children. Keep sharing. God Bless. From an anonymous friend in Utah.

Thanks everyone for your sweet and encouraging comments. You know, after I vented, I thought "Hmmm. I probably shouldn't have vented, and called Anonymous a dumbass." (Even though he REALLY pissed me off!!). Clearly, when someone shows THAT much animosity to a total stranger, they have something BIG going on in their lives to make them really unhappy.

But anyway, I sincerely appreciate the encouragement, support, friendship, etc. The blogosphere is great, and I appreciate your support and friendship!

You guys ROCK! :-)

I had a similar experience and then set my blog to private. That was a good thing because I was able to be brutally honest in my posts about the happenings of the last year. It is only in the last month or so that I have opened a second blog to share with people outside of my very intimate circle for family and friends. Hoping that some of my posts would be beneficial reading to someone out there.... and it took courage to do so.

I loved Busy Bee Suz's comment. Too Funny!!!

Smileygirl said...

I bet your anonymous commenter owns a Snuggie in every color.

HappyWifeHappyLife said...

Smiley,
LOL! ROFLOL! :-)

Son of a biscuit!!!

maybe this was the same "anonymous" that got mean on my blog too and caused me to have to add moderating. i mean, seriously? who are you that you feel the need to lurk on strangers' blogs and spew negativity.

that's a sad person there.
