A brief complaint

This is addressed to absolutely nobody who reads this journal (as far as I know, anyways), and is just boggled 'WHAT THE FUCK???' that has to get off my chest.
The more polite way of saying this will be sent tomorrow to the person I am complaining to.


Dear Sir:

When you find yourself RPing something that you don't want to RP, you need to tell me that at the time you find that's going on. When you're not enjoying the RP, you need to tell me why, so I can perhaps accomodate your enjoyment. When you find yourself not enjoying the RP you need to also not take the reins in it (so to speak), run it for FORTY-FIVE FUCKING MINUTES, and then give me shit for making you do that.
I didn't make you do something you didn't wanna do for forty-five minutes. You did that all to yourself. If I had known you didn't want to do it, I certainly could've shut the hell up more, and let it run its course faster. But you didn't tell me anything about what you thought of the situation, and therefore, I can't own responsibility for the fact that you spent 45 minutes doing something you apparently didn't want to do.
I am sorry that you didn't enjoy that RP: that certainly wasn't my intention. But fucked if I'm going to sit here and take shit off you for... god. And you can take the 'we're not going to do this a third time' ultimatum, fold it into as many sharp corners as possible, and cram it up your diamond-producingly-tight ass.

Yours,
colubra

That actually felt good.
  • RIGHT ON!
    • So the note wound up reading much more politely in final draft...
      Hey, man:
      Since I didn't say it earlier: thank you for being forthright with how you felt. I was a wee bit broadsided by it, I'll admit, and as I hadn't any other real RP going on, I just logged out after a bit and read. While reading, I had a thought I wanted to bounce off you.
      In the RP that was up this evening, was there a point that you could identify that things were going in a direction you weren't going to enjoy? If there was, could I ask that you page me at that point, if it comes up again, before I drive you right 'round the bend, or take you down a path of RP that just doesn't appeal? I definitely enjoy your RP- and getting feedback at the instant struck me as a way to make sure that the RP we do is something that you also enjoy. I have no qualms or problems with tweaking how things are going so as to provide everybody with entertainment: entertainment of the whole gang of folks is, after all, the reason folks RP.
      Hopefully that mess didn't ruin the rest of your night, and catcha later.

      ...and dorkwit disconned immediately after I hit send.

      BTW: this is actually 'scene' RP: on the online roleplaying game I've been dinking around on, there're masters and slaves, and I've been playing a slave.
      Still just in awe that I got 'I did not enjoy that. We're not doing this a third time.' after sitting around doing whatever the fuck I was told to do, getting no player-to-player feedback about the situation, and so on, for 45 minutes. Sheesh.
      Dipshit.
    • Clearly, he just wanted to take the whole master-slave thing OOC, C...How dare you dig at his power trip?!

      :)
    • You are sooo much more polite than I am.
      • Well, just because the guy did something that pissed me off doesn't mean that he doesn't merit some manner of politeness. He's done plenty of other stuff that I've really enjoyed. So.
  • I'm tempted to go on a long rant about such RP and how lack of communication that is inherent to the medium can either be used or at least acknowledged by people or horribly abused/ignored...but I'll spare it. I've probably brought it up drunkenly at you at a party anyways. :) Still, it sucks. It's amusing to me that there was a time when I was in that person's place with YOU back in my bad old days of WoD MUSHing, and it involved a lot of stress and angst on my part until I confronted you, and then it quickly became an utter non-issue, as you just politely and cheerfully accommodated me and forgot about it. I don't even remember the situation that led up to it, just what an utter non-issue it was after it was over and done with. :) Oh well. That stupid git.
    • It can be really easy to get frustrated with another player when you don't talk to him/her, yeah. And I know I'm just irrationally pissed at this insufferable COCK, rather than this person being evil incarnate.
      But gah, I needed to vent and spew and stuff.
