I love the fact that some people are so quick to hate! I left a comment (below) on the Lifehacker site – a comment to an article that asks how to get rid of naggers. Here’s the initial Lifehacker question:
Wouldn’t you like to stop being nagged? Wouldn’t you? I’m talking to you. Are you listening to me? Are you?
And here’s the rest of the post:
Well, the Happiness Project has written up a great article that helps you stop a persistent nagger in his or her tracks. Suggestions include committing to a firm deadlines, asking to be reminded only in writing, or just plain out tell the nagger that you’re a big boy/girl and you’ll get to it when you get to it. Not sure I agree with that last one, but I’d love to hear how you’ve dealt with naggers in your life – please share in the comments.

So I left the following comment:
It is a very simple seven step process:
It worked wonderfully for me. Your mileage may very. Offer void where prohibited.
I was, of course, trying to be funny. Although I did get divorced 6 years ago or so, being nagged really had nothing to do with it. But I did receive the following email just minutes after I left my comment:
People like you cause the divorce rate to be so high. Maybe if you would have just taken out the trash and emptied the dishwasher WITHOUT being asked, you wouldn’t have felt nagged.
You will also go to hell not just for getting divorced, but for promoting it.
And *I do not feel sorry for you*
Wow. That was harsh. I could have responded with something like, “Thanks, but I got divorced because prior to my divorce I WAS in hell!”
But I didn’t. I didn’t reply at all. And I won’t.
It’s interesting that I am suddenly the cause for divorce in America, AND that I am going to hell for it!
Ah well. I guess my Sunday wasn’t totally wasted. I managed to piss off some fruit-loop.
How about you – if you came here from that Lifehacker post, did you think it was at least a little funny – or did you label me as the devil?
