You are here

Open letters

Seeing as we've got confessions and problems and issues springing up in threads all over the shop, I thought it might be interesting to have an open letter thread. Cathartic, perhaps. From your mother ruining your wedding, to your boyfriend who can't stop peeing on the toilet seat, or even that guy on the bus who kept making that annoying noise with his mouth, get it out here.

I'll get the ball rolling.

To my dear darling boyfriend,

Just because you are technically 'clean' when you come out the shower, it doesn't mean that I am okay with using the same towel you've been rubbing all over yourself for a month. I know you have others. I bought you two myself. Drag them out from the murky depths of the laundry basket, wash them and allow me the temporary use of a clean one.

Love, Cat

Hi Revvie!!!

VW has been playing up a LOT lately, so lots of people are MIA too.  But good to see you!

Dear Semiveg,
I tried to email you and it bounced. I hope you got my VW message. If not: it isn't here yet.
Hoping you see this,

Dear Boy Meets World,

I realize you're a television show about a fictional group of people dealing with fictional situations. I also realize that someone I consider a great friend is really into your show. I'm not judging her. I never have. I never will. I will, however, judge you, your show, and your content.

Let's get it out there: your show is  totally full of over-the-top drama and stupidity that wears me me the eff out. Furthermore, the guys are given the spotlight on your show and they are drama, selfishness, and misogyny. Let me give you five examples:

1. The main couple (Topenga and Cory) wait until marriage to have sex. Okay. Fine. Their choice. In one episode, Cory (the male) went off on a tangent about the only purpose his fiancé had was to provide sex.

2. In another episode, the males of the show raided a girl's underwear drawer. Instead of getting pissed at the boys (college-aged boys), the women turned against the victim and responded with something to the effect of - 'you can't be mad at guys. Look at them. They're sweet.'

3. In another episode, Cory went off on his fiancé Topenga because she was succeeding. He was furious because she had more success in work, in school, in employment and in life.

4. In another episode, Cory did something wrong (I can't remember what). He somehow escaped the blame, turned it around to his fiancé Topenga and made her apologize by wearing lingerie and having sex with him.

5. In another episode, the boys pulled pranks on this one girl and she decided to play along. It was all good until the boys posted a half-nude pic of her on the college campus. The pic was meant for her boyfriend's eyes only. Somehow, the situation turned into an argument about picking sides and people being upset over side-picking. No one ever mentioned how awful and immature a prank it was to post the pic.

I could go on and on about this show. But I won't. It just really irks me that your show gets away with such blatant mistreatment towards women. To treat them no better than objects or step ladders as the boys follow their own selfish dreams is pathetic. Boys shouldn't get away with such immaturity. Boys shouldn't want to get away with such behavior.

Sidenote: I'm really into this girl I met 5 years ago. She's the only one who has made my heart bounce out of my chest. We just recently got back in touch and she was telling how upset she was at guys. Why? Because a lot of guys can't lose at things. They can't support their girl and let the girl have the spotlight. Also, a lot of guys use and abuse women while seeing them just as objects.

Boy Meets World, your show promotes these attitudes for boys and kids everywhere. Make a note..it's not getting us anywhere in this world. Men are men when they're loving and supportive and helping and involved in the relationship. Men are men when the try and try and try some more. Men are men when they think of the other person without being selfish about it. Men are men when they're accountable in the relationships they have. I may be single but I've accepted these responsibilities as a man. Boy Meets World, it pains me to see your show continuously promote boyhood.

Sincerely,
JFM

Dear vegweb,

Stop being stupid. Thanks to you my computer got 3 trojans and messed up part of my chrome files.
From now on I'll be listening to Chrome when it screams at me everytime I visit you, please fix your issues so we may be friends again. >.<!

A very pissed off,

Dear Vegwebbers:
Help me out here. I've lived in Europe for 30 years so I'm out of the loop on American language.
So as you may know, an Internet friend asked me for some relationship advice. I kinda knew he wanted unconditional affirmation, but I couldn't honestly give it to him because I think he's making a huge mistake. I told him this, and I tried to be nice about it.
So now he's all hurt, because he didn't want advice, he wanted to hear how right he is. And I get this email telling me how horrid and hurtful I am.
I apologised for hurting his feelings and acknowledged that yes he is hurting right now. However I didn't apologise for what I said because I don't think that's called for.
I got a reply today ostensibly accepting my apology, but when he signed off he wrote "Peace, So and So"
Hm. Am I right that this means "I'm still mad at you"?
Because from my Internet experience it is usually very passive-agressive, "I want to feel better than you so I won't say what I want to say which is piss off."
I like this person very much but this friendship is getting kinda heavy to carry.
What say you?

Dear yabbit,

Your time is too valuable to be spent as someones personal ego booster. He is being very passive aggressive from the sounds of it. I would drop him, he isn't worth the hassle.

Dear Audrey,

I love you. A lot. You're the only one who's made my heart bounce out of my chest. But you really hurt and disrespected me this week.

It's been five years since we've actually talked. So, at this time, I'll work with you and give you some practice rounds because I can see you've changed and have grown. So have I. Now we just need to figure each other out. That is, if you want to figure me out. You acted like you were interested last week so we'll see. This week you were uber busy. And uber busy is okay.

Anyhow..I may love you lots but I love myself a whole hell of a lot more. I'm not stuck on myself. It's just that I've worked so hard since you last saw me to build myself up and to build my group of great friends (the majority are from here on VegWeb and I love them).

I'm not saying you were at fault for my downfall years ago. You did, however, see the anger and depression and self-destruction tidal wave that was coming and almost drown me. You said I seem a lot happier. That's true. I'd like to maybe share that with you.

Love,
Josh

PS. I'm glad you're going vegan. Excellent choice. :)

WHY WOULD YOU UPDATE HOMEWORK GRADES BEFORE IT IS DUE?! Well, glad I could see my grade drop down to a C. I know you'll fix it but I don't like it being there. Blah.

Chem prof,
I can't wait for you to ask who I am when you're passing back exams tomorrow. Since I'm the only person in class you don't know and you act like every day it's my first time showing up to class when I've missed nothing so far and you only have 20 students in the class and I sit up front.
It's okay, I wouldn't know who I am either,
Girl who sits in the front and never talks.

Vegweb,
Stop not working. I need some where to rant and ramble

I say, once we get the new site and everything is settled, we do another gift exchange. Thoughts??

Dear Trader Joe's,

Thank you for putting your next Florida store in Sarasota, though St. Pete would have been nicer.  That's way closer than Naples.

Dear Daniel,

The quality of your work is atrocious, your rewrites are worse than the originals, and I'm tired you your whiny attitude.  You are fired.  Please let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.

To that Other Forum I'm not on much anymore,
You know what? The less I am on your page, the less I want to be. Funny how someone specifically invited me, because supposedly they wanted "another viewpoint"--and then you ignore my posts completely or "correct" my statements, all the while shoring each other up with constant validation and applause.
Now I know why most of the other people left.
Now you know why basically there's only 2 of you on there.
Get a room.

WHAT?! REALLY?! I AM SO EXCITED. It's okay because it will give you an excuse to come hang out with me and eat at some places I found around here.

dear bug, go away!  Three days knocked on my butt are plenty, no matter how long you stuck arround the kids.  And please skip DH.  You really annoy me with letting me feel almost fine the first 2  days as long as I stayed sitting/laying and then making me feel really nasty when I got up for anything.  Now today I even feel bad when in bed.  Go away, I am supposed to be babysitting DGS not having DH take care of both him and me as well as taking his mom to appointments.

Sounds like a plan to me!  Apparently it's going to be at 4101 S. Tamiami Trail.

Feeling much better today, still not able to stay up and moving constantly but at least I can get some stuff done.  DH did bring me several carrafes of hot water a day while I was down and I keep a stash of tea bags in my bedroom.  I was living on the sofa in my bedroom and using my laptop.  I don't do "sit still and twiddle your thumbs" very well so the computer breaks were much needed.  Thanks for the thoughts of the cookies.

Dear Credit Card Service:  Obviously you have no regard for the Federal "Do not call List".  I have repeatedly pressed the button you said to be put on YOUR list to no avail.  After you called my cell phone this morning, you had the gall to call my home phone this afternoon.  New strategy devised between the two calls:  I will talk to your represenatives.  I will be nice and sweet . . . when you ask me to get a card in good standing, I will just sit down the phone and let it take up your line as long as you don't hang it up.  My family has so many roll over minutes and never uses all of the new ones each month so I can waste them on you. >:D

Oh, BTW, I have no credit cards, drive a paid for car, and am working on putting 2 kids through college with no student loans.  Now bug off!

Dear vegan universe,

I NEED a chocolate chocolate-chip cookie recipe thats not only vegan, but gluten free and doesn't taste funny when used with carob because I can't eat chocolate. If you could please magically appear after many hours of searching, I would appriciate it!

Loving and with high reguards,
Faylinameir

SV-  I'm glad you're feeling better :) I wish I was that well off, we have 1 credit card (a discover) and we use/pay it off every month and its making the husbands credit go up fast because we want to buy a house soon. No car to speak off because I sold mine and my step son probably won't be going to college, even if he does though I won't be paying for me... yeah I'm evil like that LOL  >:D :devilwink:
