Venting (or: Why Don't You Just Shove It Right Where The Sun Doesn't Shine?)

Women are utterly incomprehensible. Women date the biggest jackasses ever, for inexplicable reasons. And then, add'em on Facebook. 

Ok, from the top: the only thing I had to do this morning was teach my 7 o'clock class, and then come back home. Well, I woke up at 6 and went out in the cold rain (not that I mind the rain, I actually like it - but it's still kind of a nuisance, having to go to work in such a weather). I got there, punctually at 5 to 7.
7:05...7:10...7:15...7:20...7:40.
No one showed up. 
I went back home literally fuming. And I immediately wrote my little story on my Facebook status. With cursing and all (well, by cursing I mean @#$%$#*&%$!$...).
A couple of friends expressed their sympathy towards my frustration. And then I saw someone else had commented on my status: this guy I'd dated eons ago (okay, 4 years ago, but, thank god, it feels much more than that! The guy's a complete jerk).
His comment: "Who told you to go and be just a teacher?..."
Now, I'm not sure if the translation does it justice... though I always write in English on my Facebook (for I have friends abroad), his comment was in Portuguese. And in our language, when we want to belittle something, we use the diminutive. And that's exactly what he did: he applied the diminutive suffix to the word "teacher". His comment was clearly deprecating. For him, apparently anyone can be an English teacher, it's easy like that.

Well: go. f***. yourself.

Even back when we were dating (and I didn't know any better), he was always making these kind of comments: "I've no idea how u can stand being just a teacher"; "Why are u wasting your time planning ur class? There's nothing to it!"; "Pfff, c'mon, anyone can do what you do!"; "I bet I could teach a class just as well as you do!"; "Any beggar can be an English teacher!"
Damn it! I studied for that! I had boring grammar classes after boring grammar classes at college! (We have to be fluent in English already when we get to college, so that we can learn how to teach it). Didactic classes; Latin, Old English, Middle English, Early Modern English classes - even a little German, for a better understanding of the history of the language; I read Beowulf, Chaucer, Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Dickens, Joyce, Wilde, Virgina Woolf, and a whole bunch of others in order to get a diploma enabling me to teach the goddamn subject! And where I work, I usually get the advanced students - because I'm that good a teacher. So don't, don't come to me with this crap, saying anyone can do what I do. 
I chose to be a teacher because I like it. And this profession is extremely important, how dare anyone diminish it like that? And if it weren't for English teachers, the jerk wouldn't even have been able to read and understand my status. (I've blocked him on my Facebook already, btw).
Jackass. Hope some angry god ties you to the top of a mountain for an eagle to eat your liver everyday, and that your liver grows back again over night just so the eagle can continue feeding on it. Jerk.

Wow, that was really liberating! I feel much better already!

He deserves that fate, but he sounds more like Epimetheus. No, he's more of a jerk than that!

Was he insecure and felt the need to attempt to belittle others??? Well, he really was just belittling himself. I'm glad you blocked him.

Rml said...

Hehe, thnx! And yeah, now that u mentioned it, true: he does resemble Epimetheus much more! Prometheus, poor guy, was just trying to do something good... nice reference!

beanizer_05 said...

have pity on those eagles, they'll be poisoned of his liver..

so he's in what field?..

you have blocked him in your FB, how 'bout addin me?? heheeee..

you want me to hunt him down?..just in case, hmmm..

Rml said...

@bean: hahahahha, I guess so!
Well, we both studied Languages and Literature at college, can u believe that?! But he studied Japanese, and now he works for one of our broadcasting companies, but doing nothing related to any language whatsoever...
I'd LOVE to add u, r u kidding me?!
And thnx baby, hehe, but I've already trash talked him the way he deserves!... (he was the most hideous boyfriend I've ever had, btw...)

beanizer_05 said...

ooops..so how'd you make that kind your boyfriend??--loooove??..or choiceless????hahhahaha!

i wish to work in a broadcasting company too..but have nothing to broadcast except..HEADLINES: An Pretty Irresistible English Teacher kicks a Jackass out of FB!..hahaha

beanizer_05 said...

sooorry ma'am! the "irresistible" should go before "pretty"..how did i say "An pretty" hahaha..i fail in grammar..give me a remedial Ma'am..will you??

Rml said...

Hahahahahahha! Well, 1st of all: I'm never choiceless, what r u talking about?! A girl like me has always got plenty of choices! (Oh wait... that actually leaves me with the option of having CHOSEN to be w/ the guy...damn it...). Like I said, I didn't know any better...
And thank u very much for the pretty and irresistible! Hehe, don't worry about the mistakes: I'll send you to summer school and everything shall be fine again!

beanizer_05 said...

haha! i know, i know you have a lot of options, you're irresistible right? (except me, i can resist you well, haha!)..was it love that made you stuck with that kind of a lover?--weheehee..well,i was stuck with a killer fish before too(the one i'm proposing to Quad last valentine)..and i won't deny it's my only true love (huhuhu)..see, you remind me again..psycho!

ambiguous_angel said...

haha.
i love top see that happen.
a little cruel, but well, he deserve it.
i love teachers..(I'm not just saying to cheer you up). I wanted to be one when i was in primary. But i realized how hard to be one that's why i end up choosing nursing, which i didn't know is as hard as education.
Anyways, smile. Don't let him ruin your day..(opps, guess he already did..haha) He's an idiot anyway. So just ignore him.
I never tried to blocked a friend in fb, but i did change my account for some reason..haha

again, smile:)

Rml said...

@bean: hahahahahahaha, guess we all have to go through this kinda pple at least once in our lives! Oh well...

@angel: thank honey, you're so sweet! Wish everyone were as sweet as u!...

RicAdeMus said...

That guy...did you like him immediately or did he have to win you over? I'm just curious about the first impression he made. My mistakes have been with people who I didn't like at first, but they worked hard to win me over.

Rml said...

@Rick: hahahahahha, good question! Well, the guy is actually pretty charismatic at first! People tend to like him right away - you only get to see his obnoxious side much later on... the guy actually stole me away from the boyfriend I had at the time! (Who was a really nice, but really boring kinda guy...). Now I'm just happy I'm not with either of them!... He did have to work to win me over, but truth is, I fell head over hills in love with him much more easily than I like to admit!... (Hahaha, see what I meant on my post? Women are utterly incomprehensible!)

beanizer_05 said...

Rml said...

@bean: hahahhahahahha, how tacky are you, really? This song is just sooooo cheesy! Hahaha, cheesy little Bean boy!

Well, can u keep a secret? Cross your heart and hope to die? Robz is not with anyone at the moment... I've got options, don't get me wrong. I just don't like'em, hehe! I'm demanding! And, oh, I'm actually a romantic (but without being clingy and needy...)! I LOVE to be in love! Even if I do make the wrong choices every now and then (like Master Jerk! =P)...

beanizer_05 said...

hahaha..i'm just singing..call that songwriter cheesy..not me, i don't like much cheez..heheeeee

well, who doesn't want to be in love??..few seconds ago, i was in love with you, but then i realize you're not with anyone at the moment, you know,(ahem!) i like to challenge myself a 'lil bit..so i leave the matter..hahahahhaha!!!

ang you're saying, you are demanding??..EVERY WOMAN IS DEMANDING!!..but, ok, i was a slave once because of those demands..

yeah, i am crossing my heart, but i'm not hoping to die..pwamiz i won't tell anyone..bean is quiet

Rml said...

@bean: hahahhahahaha, u try to disguise it, but you can't... I know you're madly in love w/ me!

beanizer_05 said...

beanizer_05 said...

RicAdeMus said...

I love long comments!!!

You are right, I am American. My grandparents were German--my dad was 1st generation US. My mom's family is Irish with a little English thrown in.

I hope you keep talking. =)

Rml said...

@Rick: phew, good, hehe! Cause I'm def a talker, and it takes a lot for me to stop! =P
Oh, okay, you're American, hehe! Cause I was thinking you had an amazing English for a non-native speaker... but then again, I'm Brazilian, what do I know?! Not sure I'm the best judge of this kinda stuff!

Massimo Z said...

That was a fucking "sick burn" as we'd say in England when you completely obliterate someone!

Well done!

Rml said...

@Mass: hahahaha, thnx! =)
