Every AIM User
Dear Mr. Joe College,
Why is it that every AIM user insists on writing things that they want other people such as an ex-girlfriend/boyfriend to read to illustrate how depressed, pissed off or how they are "moving on" in their away messages? Care to share any insight? Sincerely,
Holy crap â€“ you have a real name. Well, an odd real name, but thereâ€™s no rhyme or alliteration, and that impresses me. Though you got mine wrong. Itâ€™s just Joe, or Joe College, or Mr. College if you want to be formal.
Now for your question. It sounds like youâ€™ve been profile stalking, Mr. Trey. Mr. Lunch Trey. Mr. Cafeteria Lunch Trey. Yeah, it sounds like youâ€™ve been profile stalking. But you couldnâ€™t stalk if they didnâ€™t provide you with ample stalking material. Through their IM profile, which is kind of pathetic.
Here is my impression of someone talking to their roommate on IM:
â€œIâ€™m afraid of social interaction.â€
â€œHuman contact scares me as well.â€
Iâ€™m kidding - no one uses punctuation on IM! And only passive weenies who are afraid of confrontation leave messages to their exes in their profiles. Geez, move on. Mr. Lunchable over here needs some closure.
Thanks for writing. This was Joe College saying, â€œMmm..Lunchables.â€
