< rahikkala> I fail mad at sleeping!!!
-!- You're now known as ari
[+o ari] by ChanServ
<@ari> And since it seems I'm going to keep failing mad at sleeping for a while, I might as well describe the reason why it seems I'm failing mad at sleeping
<@ari> I listened to the radio last summer for a decent amount of time
<@ari> The hosts at the YleX channel tend to discuss all sorts of fun stuff. Once the subject was correcting other people's behaviour, with one voice being for "eh, it's not my business what other people do" but another being all "actually I do snap at youngsters for instance if they litter, my theory being that since they're young you can at least try to help them; It's hopeless with adults though"
<@ari> So those of you who know my contrarianism understand that ever since that I've had this burning desire to get to correct some middle-aged person's behaviour (thereby proving my youth :p)
<@ari> Some of you also know that I currently live with my parents
<@ari> So, tonight, I got a call from some guy who apparently wanted me to relay a message to my father
<@ari> I asked him if it was urgent but we had some trouble understanding each other and he didn't really respond
<@ari> So I was a bit confused but told him, well, OK, I guess if you want me to I can write something down, but dad's gone to sleep by now
<@ari> And he goes "you know, if your dad wanted to complain at me he could have called rather than send a sms"
<@ari> So I was (implicitly) thinking, there are two possibilities
<@ari> Either this guy is actually in a hurry and desperate to get some important message to dad for... whatever reason... or, he just called to be an asshole who drags other people into his arguments - and not just other people, but the other side's son
<@ari> And at this point the evidence against the first option and for the second one reached criticality, and I blew the fuck up at him
<@ari> (thereby probably waking my parents up and letting him accomplish his goal of annoying them, I guess, but that's beside the point)
<@ari> "blowing the fuck up" here means I burst into a long laugh, after which I went something like "I can't believe it, shit, you actually think it's OK to just call someone's son up and shit-talk thir dad to them?"
< Corey> that's hardcore, man
<@ari> *their... (his?)
< Corey> his would be better
< Corey> you already defined a gender here
< Corey> I don't really know any female sons, but I could just be sheltered
<@ari> Anyways, I told him that whatever argument they have I'm not going to anything to do with it, and if he wants to talk to my dad, he can just call tomorrow
<@ari> And hung up
<@ari> After which, on account of being a big wimp, I've been shaking all evening, and thereby getting no sleep :p
