Note: I had the wrong link in the following paragraph. It erroneously linked to my FRIEND’s new page. I meant to link it to my February 1 “Attention Fuckwits” post the day the Shuttle went down. I am sorry about that! (Can you believe I get paid to type? And are you just so glad I’m not a brain surgeon?!) And thanks to my ever-vigilant friend for tactfully pointing this gaffe out to me. Now, I’m going to find a rock big enough for me to crawl under….
On with the show….
Well, it’s necessary to once again post one of those Attention Assholes messages again.
Sigh. Okay. Here goes.
If you are my friend, co-worker, boss, relative, and especially if you are just an acquaintance, please keep your opinions to yourself about how, whether and when I am going to help, aid, assist or otherwise lend support to Robert through his illness.
Friends: Yes, sometimes I bellyache about Robert, but I wouldn’t have stuck by him all this time if I didn’t find him to be a morally, socially or ethically redeeming human being worthy of my love and attention. So if you’ve got something negative to say about the situation, start your own goddam blog.
Relatives: Especially those church-going relatives. Get that Bible out a little more often. Does the phrase [a]ll things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them (Matthew 7:12), mean a goddam thing to you? Because if it doesn’t then I guess I need to go over there and take that Bible you throw around and whack you soundly over the head with it. (Spare the rod and spoil the child/brother/sister/mother/father, you know how THAT one goes…)
Co-Workers: If you don’t already know the situation, I’m not going to explain it to you, so DON’T ASK ME TO! If you want to know about my life, it’s an open book and it’s all out there on the Internet. Even if you don’t know the URL of this blog, all you’d have to do is type jonimueller.com, hit enter and click one link and you’re here. Read all about it. But SPEAK NOT!
