If there is one thing the Internet has taught me, it is that I don't like people...

For a long time, I thought I just didn't like being around people. It seemed like I could only spend a certain length of time around them before I wanted to start choking/gouging/killing people. And I thought being on the Internet would be a safe alternative. If I felt I needed to go away from them, I could just *poof* make them disappear. But I have begun to realize that there are some that as soon as I see them or read one single word they have written, I'm ready to go on a mass-killing spree just to work out the frustrations they cause. Some of these people are even more useless than an 8 track tape. Even more useless than a broken 8 track tape. I'm so glad I don't work with the public anymore...I would have done snapped by now and be doing life + 30 years.

When I was younger, I always though I should buy a punching ball to stop me from killing people. I never did. Then I thought if I threw eggs to the wall… Now I´m old and discovered I cannot change the world. If I could, I would have started long time ago with Pinochet in my country. Or with Trump in yours now. So I just mylot with nice people like you

I can so relate to what you are saying. I am probably considered an introvert to those who know me. But you know what, I don't care. I stay away from drama and the nonsense of others. Life is too short to listen to the noise. I like peace.

Oh come now, is it really, really that bad ? Actually I can totally relate, but I've gotten tired of the frustration - at least in real life. I can't exactly make people disappear, so I've tried to make the frustration go away. Now I just keep my distance - I seem to get in trouble when people get too close to me (yes, that's when I want to clobber them). I don't feel that so much here . . . I have just enough closeness that puts me in a happy place - I gotta save the clobbering energy for the outside world . I'm takin' everythang wit a grain of salt . . . hey, sometimes broken 8 tracks can be fixed .

I think it depends on who you are dealing with. Some people are friendly and nice but they are rarely seen in the public. I am open to help them if they is an opportunity and having a friend like them is not a problem. Some are nasty people, I will ignore them if I would not depend on them in my life. However, in reality people are hard to deal with. They will work based on the interest except our parents who will be on our site whenever we are in trouble.

@myklj999 Though you did this post in a comical way, I understand where you are coming from. The internet is a great way to physically stay away from people. But I admit that people online have me tearing up or raging due to the things they say or how awful their personality is. I try to understand and accept people for who they are and give people chances but there are times where someone is so damn horrible, that their actions or thought patterns are unforgivable. I've had moments where I needed to have a break away from here because certain people were driving me up the wall! Just seeing their title for their post would irritate me to the point I had to walk away....far away from my laptop and try to pretend I didn't see what I saw. It's not often that I snap, but when I do I release all the anger and confusion people make me feel. People can be so ignorant! Selfish! Harmful! UGH! I used to concern my dad years ago when I'd often say "I wish a asteroid would wipe us all out! We suck! Humans suck!" There are beautiful individuals but as a whole, humans were the worst beings to be put on this planet. And wow my heart is beating fast lol I started this comment off quite calmly but now I'm a little angry lol ( not your fault....people...oh god just people irritate me immensely at times! )
I used to think I didn't like people, possibly because most of family aren't really very social and outgoing. Then I started teaching and realized that people are great :-) It is lot of stupid people around though, and I think many people will show their worst side online, especially if they can be anonymous ( I hate spelling that word!).
