Tamtam stupid stuff...

That moment when you take a chance, and write something somewhat meta witty to someone, and hope they get your sense of humour..
but they don't. The joke couldn't fly further from the target.
And you try to save it, or brush it off with a "nevermind" kind of comment to avoid further awkwardness, but they insist on knowing what you meant.
Or even get mad at you, probably because they automaticly assume that anything they don't understand must be an insult....

That moment when..
That moment when people read hella lot into everything you say, and what you thought was a pretty calm or humoristic post, ends up being interpreted as an invite to world war III.

And then you try to convince this person that you didn't mean it like that, but they have already made up their mind about you being a dickhead, so no matter how calm or friendly you write, they have these tinted goggles on that makes everything you say look like insults or something with a tone or attitude.
The more you try to calm things down and explain yourself, the worse it gets and the angrier they get. The angrier they get, the harder it (not to say impossible) is for them to be able to get rational and actually see whats going on.

Even if you're that lucky they'll read the whole thing again once they've calmed down, most of them are often too stubborn to be able to change their first impressions anyway.

What ya gonna do? Its a ******** waste of time trying to make things right with these type of people.
