You Make My Day /Sarcasm

Article posted on Wednesday, August, 5th, 2009 at 8:49 pm

Hey anonymous commenter in Pensacola, Florida!

Yeah you, using Bellsouth and Windows NT with Internet Explorer. Yeah you, the one that was so kind as to be rude to me via this blog on July 31 at 8:26 a.m. CT (9:26 a.m. ET). Why not tell me who you are? Why not be straight with me with YOUR name out there, then tell me what you think of me to my face? Oh right, because it’s easier to insult me without leaving your name.

Thanks so much!

I feel so good about myself when I get your anonymous critiques of my honest attempts to be a good parent. Anonymous critiques of the ways I try to show my daughter I love her — I’m sorry you missed that point.

If you don’t like me, don’t read this blog. Why are you even here? If you want to insult me, say it to my face with YOUR name attached. I’d respect you and your thoughts more.


I’m even more hurt because I happen to know we have people we love — who we thought loved us — who were visiting Pensacola last week.

Thanks again for taking the time to leave your non-sunshine all the way from the Sunshine State.

— Geneen AND Andy. Believe it or not, you hurt us both with your little drive-by potshots and random acts of anonymous rudeness.

** PS Thank you, also, Pensacola poster, for making us decide to disallow anon comments — after three years!

  • I had no idea. And I am boiling over with anger right now at the thought that someone would say something rude on a blog that is not controversial in any way, but is only meant to cover the life of a wonderful, innocent child. It is honestly sick (not to mention incredibly immature) that someone would try to hurt their own family. What kind of values does someone like that have? I shudder to think, and can only hope they don't have children of their own.

  • I am just sad today.

  • Geneen and Andy, we are truly sorry this happened, we will take steps to make sure it never happens again. It was not called for, and is completely without reason.

    Dan and Cathy
