An “Emmy Award Winning Talk Show” has placed the following casting call: I May Break-up With You…Because You’re TOO Rude!
Is it just me, or is the person who responds to this equally — if not more — rude as the person they are complaining about?
Even if the casting call insists, “Don’t write in unless both of you are willing to appear on a national TV show,” can you imagine that conversation?
“Uh, honey, we need to talk…”
Sighs as they silently think, “Oh crap!” — but replies, with a tentative, “Now what?” (Or maybe because they are in fact rude, they reply with “Crap, now what?”)
She continues, “We need to talk… On national television.”
“About how rude you are.”
“How rude I am? How rude I am?! What the f***?! Can you even spell irony?”
I never understood why people wanted to air their problems on TV! It’s one thing if you think you may be able to truly help others, but for the most part I don’t think that’s what happens.
