I’ve already commented on BBB’s post about how the current wow-holiday is bringing out the worst in people but I thought I’d expand on it here. Besides, I haven’t had the time to do a post in a while so why not.
From the dictionary:
Main Entry: pa·thet·ic
Pronunciation: \pə-ˈthe-tik\Function: adjective
1 : having a capacity to move one to either compassionate or contemptuous pity
2 : marked by sorrow or melancholy : sad
3 : pitifully inferior or inadequate <the restaurant’s pathetic service>
4 : absurd, laughable <a pathetic costume>
5: This guy who parked his mammoth mount right on top of one of the Love Is In The Air’s chain questgiver.
I’m not going to bother announcing his name to the world because I really do believe it would only make him proud to be recognized. There was enough /yelling and insults flying at him and his only response was to /yell back “YOUR RAGE FUELS ME“.
Yup, he’s an Asshat alright but you have to wonder; why on earth would you bother to be such a jerk? With that sort of response, I’m sure he was enjoying the angry riot and drama he had created.
As I mentioned in my comment over at BigBearButt’s, the only positive that came out of this was to see the helpful solutions offered by other players. As per their advice, <CTRL-V> will reveal everyone’s nameplates and by targeting the nameplate, you will be able to interact with the quest-giver. And I am sure that due to the advice of the Good Samaritans of Orgrimmar this day, eventually the Asshat got bored of his game and left.
Yes, the good Samaritans still outnumber the Asshats. Keep his in mind when you come across these holiday fools and other jerks you might have to deal with in this game. I know I will, if only to help me to ignore them and to ignore the drama they try to create. Don’t give them the satisfaction of letting them get to you!
