Like I said, my day just got better.

Ten minutes, forty-five seconds wih This Guy, claiming to be a former radio show host, who would like to--I wrote this down before I sent him off to the CRs--lodge a complaint against the HHSC for its ultrafeminist views and support of illegal immigration, Some Woman at Equal Opporutnity was mean to him, and they are all so stupid. And all these women hate men. They should go to jail! Just like the people that hire the illegal immigrants! EVIL!

My day is *fantastic*. Give me more. Please.

*a litlte giddy*

Seriously. So cool. I never get crazy people anymore.

That almost beats working in a computer-support call-center. America does breed strange people sometimes. :o)

Erm, just to confirm - he wants to lodge a complaint about a woman who was mean to him. And he tells this story to ... a woman? Ooooooookay.

Against the entire state agency, and her. And possibly ovaries. I was kind of zoning from shock near the end there.

Seriously. So cool. I never get crazy people anymore.

Your amusement in this makes me so happy :)

I am so easy to please.

That is really bizarre. I have no idea what CRs are, but I pity them already for also having to deal with the crazies.

Well, he was a *fun* one. I mean, the ones that come out of left field and just--*waves hands*. Amazing.

CR is a complaint resolutions specialist. Their lives are dealing with the crazy.

Wow, I didn't even know there was a special job for that.

Wow. That's crazy on a par with the people who wrote Letters to the Editor of the television magazine I used to work at, ordering us to stop putting so many commercials on their television.

Larry the cucumber! I love him so.

I once met a woman who ended our extended theological/historical argument by telling me that she was an archangel, sent to tell me the error of my ways. Totally deadpan and in earnest - if it was a joke, she'd managed to conceal her sense of humor very thoroughly.

Now, when I tell this story to people, I think it's hysterically funny. At the time, though, I was so gobsmacked I don't think I managed to say anything at all. Because she'd struck me as wrong-headed and illogical, but I really didn't see the batshit crazy coming.

That's great. Today I got a call from the world's oldest surviving gay circus clown, who wanted to tell me his life story. Told him I'd get back to him. And I WILL, because! gay circus clowns!

Probably a good thing that it wasn't me, or he would have had another complaint about women being mean to him. After all of course we should all just merrily fall over and agree with him about the whole thing. *blinks* It is a reasonable complaint! Really. Not.


Way back when (say, in 2000 or 2001) there was the online fuss about Dave Sims the writer/artist and the misogynist rant he stuck in one of the issues or trades of his CERBERUS comic. It was delightfully batshit crazy, and you just reminded me of the bit where he noted as an aside that his female typesetter had just reached a point of refusing to handle any more of his charming little editorial, which he pointed out as proof of female emotionality and irrationality.

That is hilarious! It's about time someone took a stand against women and illegal immigrants. *g*
