I have a pet peeve. Well I have many actually. But this one in particular, well I deduct that many people might be annoyed by it too? Possibly? Lets commence.
Think Jay-Z here. But more closely related think bloggers. Since I've entered the blogosphere I've ran across a few well established blogs run by bloggers who have been doing their thang thang for years. And they sooooo sadly announce. I am retiring! I no longer have the passion to write...Good bye...farewell...Yada yada yada.
Cue the outpouring of sentimental comments from faithful readers and even long time lurkers hit the comment button for the first time just to bid them a thank you and farewell.
And then you know what happens?
The blogger comes back less than a month later, blogging as if nothing has happened.
Does that annoy you too? It really irks the shit fire out of me. I don't know why.
Maybe its the fact that its narcissistic and phony. Preplanned and predictable. I've always disliked people who felt the need to make a dramatic exit.
I mean even Jay-Z gets on my nerves for goodness sake its ridiculous. I remember a few years back they gave him an award, a bunch of big shots came out and said how great he was, they played a montage video of his successes...
And you know how this story turns out if you listen to the radio at all.
I don't like the man anymore because of that reason!
Faking your retirement is almost as bad as faking your death. Really its just pathetic.
Can you tell I am on my period?
