So Long, Friends

Normally, I let this kind of petty bullshit roll right into the Who Gives a Fuck? file upstairs, but those involved are people I think are wonderful individuals, people I genuinely care about and consider friends. We've been there for each other with unconditional support, advice, and good times, for a long time.

Color me surprised and disappointed to learn that in all my obliviousness, these "friends" decided to turn on me, for imagined slights on blogs, of all things. I had no idea they were inclined to be so ridiculous. Especially the not calling me on it, if their feelings were genuinely hurt; why would you go sulk somewhere and complain to other people? How very Jr. high.

Like most of you, probably, I have a few close friends who can get away with murder (figuratively speaking) and get only a severe mocking from me. However, those good friends are unlikely to get into a snit over something I wrote on my blog. I posed this question to one of them, and they called me a friggin' moron. Because they are real, true, honest (mostly), and loyal, these close friends are family and can do no wrong.

Acquaintances, however, often do wrong. They're sometimes thin-skinned, paranoid, needy, delusional, mean, and/or plain stupid. Only acquaintances feel ok thrusting their high-maintance crap on other people. And because I have a full life and really no time or interest in dealing with petty bullshit, I have a few less acquaintances than I did yesterday.

It goes without saying (hence why I'm saying it) that a slight (especially in a blog) separates the men from the boys (figuratively speaking, unless it's a blog about NAMBLA). But more to the point, it's a good idea to keep an old adage close at hand:

Those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.

That one's saved me a lot of aggravation (and 9mm ammon) over the years.
