Once again, people are assholes everywhere.

Long-time readers will remember that last year I worked in a haunted house. I was bored and decided to do it again this year, and once again, I can safely say that people SUCK everywhere. We're only three days in and I'm already tired of the assholes! Here's a hint: if you go to a haunted house, don't hide around corners and jump out at the actors and scream. That's my job, fuckface. It just makes you look like a tool. Standing in the middle of a scene with your arms crossed refusing to move doesn't prove you're a big man -- it just proves you're a cocksmack. We haven't had any crazy violent bitches who had to be escorted out by security yet (I got punched in the face by one of those last year), at least.

At least at this job when they piss me off I can scream at them! It's a good time despite the jerkoffs that have to prove they're big tough guys. One girl was crying literally crying last night, I'm twisted enough to have enjoyed that!

(ETA: After SkippyMom's comment, I can see how that came across as a little more evil than I really meant it. I meant it's a kind of job pride - although yes, you do have to be a LITTLE evil to work in a haunt!)

Maybe I can talk them into making a restaurant scene next year so I can scream about tips and children making messes .....

Just like I sometimes wonder why you keep your waitressing job plus submit yourself to this hell every year - I am beginning to wonder why I find you entertaining. Especially when you said "One girl was crying literally crying last night, I'm twisted enough to have enjoyed that."

Really? I appreciate you get to scream at people, that's part of the job and a great release for you I am sure. But, I don't know about making people cry. I thought fright was supposed to be fun?

It's job pride. To a haunt crew, if somebody is crying with fear, or hiding their face, or running, then we've done our jobs. She wasn't hiding her face or asking to leave, so she was still having fun. I guess you have to be a little sadistic to enjoy it, but that's what people pay for.

I don't know. Maybe it is because we have kids who like to be scared - they do, but in a good way. To see one of them cry, [the youngest is 14 and the oldest is 23] would make me sad. We take the younger two to the haunted park every year and they come home, all excited, laughing with just how scared they were and what a great job the actors did.

Crying? Not so much. That's just us tho'.

idk. i say if she isnt screaming and crying to get out, then its still all in good fun. Hell, it is a huanted house, it is SUPPOSED to be scary. if you are a cry baby, maybe not go to real haunted houses and stick to kiddie parks...

Skippy Mom is just a douchebag who haunts other peoples blogs. She does it anon most of the time. She ragged me on and on about a Pagan post I did on MY Pagan blog. Suck it, Skippy Doodle. And I'll sign my name.

Some people involuntarily cry when scared. Some people involuntarily smile. If you're getting someone to have such a reaction, then go you! After all, the whole point of going to the haunt is to be scared, right?

Also, I have noticed a number of concern troll comments by that skippy user over several blogs. Seems like a theme.

Now that isn't fair dirty disher. I never post anonymous, and besides purple girl and I are friends. I just happen to be older, with kids and have a differing view.

I was ragging on her.

And as for your blog? I have never been to it and wouldn't bother.

SkippyMom said...

That should say WASN'T ragging on her. She knows that.

You are a liar and a troll. You have been identified, reported and outted. I suggest you keep your skippy butt off my blog.

This is my last response to you. I refuse to have a war with a moron on somone else's blog. Anything you say will be ignored by me, because I know you are lying. I know what you are. Have a skippy day.

purplegirl said...

Holy crap, I need to check my comments more often. Skippy's been a reader of both my blogs for a long time, we're cool, I wasn't offended. I don't want any fighting here so any other comments in that vein will be deleted to head it off.

dirtydisher said...

I am a long time reader of your blog. I've been here since the start. I was naive enough to sign my comments with my login, which is how I got trolled. Which is not your fault in any way. Sorry if you're upset. This IS your blog and I will respect that.

I'm not upset! Just seen too many flamewars and don't want one here. :)
