I was royally pissed the other day after spending an hour on the phone with my ISP and still not able to sort out a solution to my problem. After having that meaningful conversation with Beethoveen's 5th symphony or something of that sorts playing on their Call-Transfer machine, I went over to the computer lab, powered up MSN and started chatting with a few people.

Karma works in mysterious ways. I was rewarded when some dumbass messaged me on MSN, and I could release some stress. Her karma, however, wasn't quite as good. She chose the wrong person on the wrong day to 'be friends with'.

zhanghong : do u know she?
*I happened to be chatting with Tilia and I gave Tilia this girl's contact so that she could go make fun of her as well. Tilia ended up asking her some survey questions*
Vincent : which girl?
Vincent : why are u telling me about other girls?
Vincent : i tot u were free
Vincent : u said u wanted to get over ur bf
Vincent : u said u wanted to add random people and chat so i helped u la
Vincent : were u lying to me?
zhanghong : i need to talk abt things concern my bf becos i cant talk to he
zhanghong : so i have to talk to other ppl to get it out off me
Vincent : so u think its a good idea to find random people online to ask for love advice?
zhanghong : at least i can pass my diff times
Vincent : see i wont know anything about a bf cuz i dont intend on getting one
zhanghong : but ur a guy u should know
zhanghong : i tried to talk to my bf

zhanghong : i duno but he is in usa
Vincent : so?
Vincent : why are u teling me about ur bf?
Vincent : look i dunno about u laa..but nobody i know gets love advice from random strangers on MSN
Vincent : if u need help go call befrienders or something like that or go to a church and ask the priest for help cuz u sound like the suicidal type
Vincent : either way...i dont really care
Vincent : cuz i got enough of my own problems to worry about other
zhanghong : ur so mean
Vincent : yes i know
Vincent : u're not the first person to tell me that
Vincent : now i bet ur bf is a much nicer person than i am...so why dont u go talk to him and stop bugging my ass?

zhanghong : he is in usa now
Vincent : so? i think they got phones in the US
zhanghong : he is student i dunno if he hae money for it
Vincent : THEN U CALL LA
*I couldn't be arsed to tell her about International Call Cards*
Vincent : u met him on internet oso issit?
zhanghong : yeah
Vincent : see thats the problem with meeting people on the internet
Vincent : why dont u go out and meet some real people in real life?
zhanghong : i had fallen for him
Vincent : again....i dont give a shit about u or him
Vincent : for fucks sake
zhanghong: ur mean
Vincent : YES I KNOW
Vincent : now that we already agreed on that...can we also agree that i dont give a flying rat's ass about you or your boyfriend?
*and that is when I felt happy once again, since I had vented all my anger and diverted a heart attack from my chat with the ISP. I blocked her after that*
Moral of the story : Don't EVER message me on IM and tell me that you want to be my friend.
Vincent, to release angst, go shoot a gun! YEA! No Gun? Time to invest in PS2, guncon 2 and Time Crisis 3 :D
can't understand how people can seriously IM a stranger and start talking about their personal problems, though. sure, might be frustration and the need to talk to someone, anyone, but that's what counsellors and help hotlines are for. strangers are not likely to help much.
especially those named "vincent-on-a-bad-day"
Anyway, I had someone IMed me and said he was John Travolta. I don't have a clue who the hell he is and blocked him straight away.
Is there some trend in chatting up random strangers on IM these days?
Just wanted to say everything you posted was a good read.
Its nice too see that some people create decent and entertaining blogs, yours kept me reading for well over 10 minutes.
