Strange Sighting:

I ate at Pizza Hut in Muscle Shoals today and I saw something more bizarre than I have ever seen at a restaurant before. There was a man at a table by himself with an open laptop. With-in 30 minutes he gulped down several different salad fixings individually one item in one bowl at a time. After that he gulped down over 25 pieces of pizza, eating only the toppings. He would quickly chew the toppings off the pizza and then throw the bread part down and then like a dog devour another topping off the next pizza. It was a sight I hope I don't ever have to watch again. Has anyone else ever seen this man?

If you eat pizza, the topping is the best part. Wayyyyyyyyyyyyy too much bread on a pizza unless it's thin crust, and then still it's a lot of bread. Now they are sticking cheese in the crust! It should be outlawed.

You may now add FOOD TYRANT to your other much-deserved title of Forum Harridan.

I suspect Best was joking.  No sense of humor, nor sense in general, amongst the Democrats.

Yes I was. Of course beternnun always has his motor idling, ready to slap it in gear to run give his snarky reply to ANY post I make no matter the subject.

Probably a reflex action like the rubber hammer on the knee -- no thinking involved.

Forum harridan? Not until all you demoslop drama queens are gone. You crybaby.

 Yes beternnun, you are a drama queen.

============================

First of all, drama queen implies it’s a girlie thing. It’s not. Males and females alike are equally capable of requiring way more energy than a relationship with them is worth. Drama, being a close kin to high maintenance, may manifest itself in behaviors that look different across the continuum of masculinity to femininity, but make no mistake, drama kings are every bit as real as drama queens. So for the purposes of this piece, we’ll be talking, “drama persons.”

Drama persons thrive on attention, but that’s because they learned to feel invisible and unimportant. This is where the drama comes from. They are merely trying to convince themselves, by trying to convince you, that they matter. They are blind to the feelings of others and have failed to develop the coping skills necessary for an adult life. Call it arrested development, call it a failure to grow up and evolve, but underneath it all they have yet to outgrow (or dispel) whatever negative feelings they learned to believe about themselves. The sad part is that if their behavior weren’t such a turnoff, there would be plenty of reason to have compassion for them, which ironically is what they really need to heal their wounds and move one.

Whether it is from believing they were not loved, not good enough, not wanted or accepted, an internal narrative developed, almost always unconscious, that plays out when memories of those feelings are triggered and/or come to the surface. In that process they exhaust everyone in the present by replaying whatever story they are telling themselves from their pasts. And so they act out.

Do all drama queens post material written by others without giving credit due? Or is that unsavory practice reserved for the use of harridans who also themselves happen to be drama queens? Is that part of a drama queen's desire to get attention,  to gain recognition, and to convince others that they matter?
