When I was at the party, some girl didn't want her picture taken. So I said 'okay, the photo's gone' because whatever, I'm happy to oblige if people don't want their photos taken. Then she was like "I know you have a photo of me", but I didn't and I even showed her. I walked away after that going 'whatever'. Two other people came up to me saying I should delete the photo that I didn't even have at that point. I was like 'down boy, no need to attack because it's not even an issue because it doesn't even exist'.
So I popped into the ballpit back room at some point and I took a photo of Anon. I didn't know at the time that the girl who didn't want her photo taken was sitting in the ballpit because I wasn't paying attention to her, I was (for the one time in my life, heh) focused on Anon. So I hear Dan's mouth go off as I'm leaving "Hey! Would you fucking stop taking photos of the girl who doesn't want them fucking taken?!" And I checked my camera and was like 'bloody hell!' the girl was in the very very background, so I deleted it right away and, not having a good day, I told him in no uncertain terms, "I didn't know she was in the photo, asshole. Don't fucking speak to me like that!"
I walked out of the room and that SHOULD have been that. I wasn't really to the point of being SERIOUSLY PISSED OFF like I got to later, I just was basically saying 'back the hell off and realize you can't act like that'.
Partying continued until we were ready to go. Me and Debra were walking out the door and I was just trying to get through the throng of people without saying anything to him because the living room was crowded. So, he decides that he NEEDS to call out to us (AFTER that interaction earlier where I told him to back the fuck off) "Who's driving home? I hope it's not Janet."
This comes after a New Year's Eve party where he was telling everyone that I owned a piece of shit car and I was stupid for picking out one that ran so shitty. (Keep in mind, that when I bought my car I was doing really badly financially and he was announcing it to EVERYONE at the New Year's Eve party.)
So I called back "At least I don't drive my mom's car" because if he's going to be talking shit about other people's vehicles maybe he should get a job, a life without mommy and daddy and a car that he doesn't have to borrow from his parents.
Debra made me walk out of the house, grabbed me and hauled my ass to her car. We had to wait for My Dan though, and he has a hard time getting through places because he's much bigger than me and had to collect some of his things, so he was way behind. I sat in the car seething and wanting to beat the ever living shit out of him, thinking about all the things he's said to me over the past couple of months to me and mine and I just lost it. About the time My Dan got in the car, I told everyone "I just gotta go back to the party, one thing I forgot." And I stormed off, ready to go to jail and beat the fucking shit out of him. I seriously didn't care at that point, so Debra got the hint and came running after me, stopped me on the sidewalk and had to use all her power to haul my ass back to her car again while I was screaming in the street about how I was going to kill him. I don't regret any of those words and he would do well to stay away from me in the future.
To top it off, I got sick last night and I'm pretty sure it had something to do with the raw BBQ food he tried to feed everyone because he's such an "awesome cook".
Came home and posted this:
"OPEN LETTER TO THE IMMATURE SHITFACE THAT GOES BY THE NAME EVIL DAN: WE ARE NOT FRIENDS ANYMORE. DO NOT SPEAK TO ME ANYMORE. YOU NEED TO LEARN HOW TO TALK TO PEOPLE RESPECTFULLY. THERE ARE MANY THINGS I CAN SAY TO YOU. FOR INSTANCE YOU ARE A 39 YEAR OLD LOSER WHO STILL LIVES WITH MOMMY AND DADDY AND HAS NO LIFE, NO CAR, NO JOB AND ABSOLUTELY NO COOKING SKILLS (THE FUCKING BURGERS AND HOTDOGS WERE RAW TONIGHT AND EVERYONE WAS THROWING THEM ON THE FLOOR BECAUSE THEY WERE FUCKING INEDIBLE), BUT I DON'T SAY THESE THINGS BECAUSE I ALSO HAVE ONE MORE THING THAT YOU DON'T: CLASS! LEARN TO GROW UP OR SOMEONE IS GOING TO PUT YOUR ASS THROUGH A WALL, IF NOT ME THAN SOMEONE ELSE. AS IT IS, YOU'RE LUCKY DEBRA PULLED ME OFF OF YOU TONIGHT BECAUSE I WOULD HAVE HAPPILY GOTTEN ARRESTED IF IT MEANT BEATING YOUR ASS TO A FUCKING PULP. DO NOT SPEAK TO ME ANYMORE, STOP SAYING SHIT BEHIND MY BACK AND GROW THE FUCK UP.
The reason he has become such a fucking problem in our group and gaming circles is because so many people fucking coddle him and say "oh, it's okay that he says these things to people because he's just Evil Dan". Yeah, well fuck that shit with a rusty razor. If you see something and you don't say something, you're just as bad as the bully, honestly."
"Getting more afraid of getting talked to like shit this days and less afraid of any drama associated with standing up and telling people 'this is unacceptable and I'm not going to accept this asshattery anymore'. As such, some people may feel the need to unfriend me or stop talking to me in real life. Well, have at ye.
I'm pretty much getting to the point where I'm like I can't fight so many battles at once, if people don't respect me then dealing with them doesn't have to be a battle and they can just feel free to vacate my life. Sorry, too much is going on right now and random people who are gonna treat me like crap don't need my attention as much as all the other fucking things that are burning down around me right now."
Though, so many people have already given up on him that the support I'm getting is so worth standing up. At least I don't feel like the only one in the room defending him now.
