JOLLY OL' FELLA
This chat happened five years ago - found this today, saved up in an old folder.
Trying to play the ever-empathetic nice fella, I (jolly_ol_fella) decided to go to the Depression Support Room in Yahoo Chat, to try raise some cheer. I meet this person im_blue.
I noticed that this person had a very weak font. My sharp eyes also deftly caught the absence of the exclamation mark. Lack of enthusiasm. I figured this person was really down...
jolly_ol_fella:Really in the dumps ah?
im_blue :Yeah, your not messin with me r u?
im_blue :Sorry. Too many people have taken advantage of my honesty
I felt pity. Life had surely been harsh on him/her. It showed....
jolly_ol_fella:Relax ....I've been there...know how it feels
im_blue :You do?
jolly_ol_fella:Why do ya think I keep smilin all the time
im_blue :I have major problems
jolly_ol_fella:U cud talk to me.....
jolly_ol_fella: ....if ya wanna
jolly_ol_fella:F course..what r frendz 4?
im_blue :How old r u first?
Uh-oh! This conversation was building up just fine. I didn't want to destroy it. I hesitated, but then decided there was no way I could find out what he/she wanted.
jolly_ol_fella:I'm 19, but I hope that wont disqualify me!
im_blue :I'm 19
jolly_ol_fella:Good. Go on...
im_blue :Well, it's my grandpa..
im_blue :I live with my grandparent and he's losin his mind
jolly_ol_fella:What exactly IS the prob?
im_blue :He keeps tellin me that I'm adopted and that my mom is a whore
im_blue :I don't know if I'm adopted
Tsk, tsk....what a sad state, I thought to myself. I wanted to know more about this guy who didn't know anything about himself...
jolly_ol_fella:Are u studying now or working?
jolly_ol_fella:And your Grandpa pays 4 it?
im_blue :Yeah he pays for it
im_blue :And....well I can't say it nevermind
jolly_ol_fella:Come on ...talk
im_blue :Its gross..
jolly_ol_fella:If it helps ya feel better
im_blue :Well okay!
Pouring out one's worries was the best way to feel better. I was proud of myself! I was making this person feel better already!
im_blue :I walked in my room and he was on my bed with my clothes on
jolly_ol_fella:Er....are u a girl?
im_blue :No I'm a guy
im_blue :And I turned around and ran..and he was yelling at me...
jolly_ol_fella:What does he want from you
im_blue :He tried to touch me!
im_blue :I didn't know what to do
im_blue :He's a lot bigger than me
I wanted to help him out. But how could I?
jolly_ol_fella:Do u have someone really close u can talk to bout this to?
jolly_ol_fella:In ur vicinity I mean
im_blue :No one
im_blue :My parents are gone
im_blue :That's why I live with him
im_blue :Anyways, all I could think to do is grab the poker from the fireplace and hit him with it....
I was still thinking of ways this poor guy could be freed from his horrible gay grandpa.
jolly_ol_fella:Any way that u can live elsewhere...and work 4 ur money?
im_blue :I can't get a job
im_blue :I have a bad back and I can't stand for more that 10 minutes at a time
Tsk, tsk...did God have to give this guy EVERY kind of trouble?
jolly_ol_fella:Are you religious, im_blue ?
im_blue :No, god doesn't love me
im_blue :Anyways, I didn't realize how hard I hit him
I had almost forgotten that he was telling me about that scuffle with his grandfather.
jolly_ol_fella:What happ. to him?
im_blue :I can't really say
im_blue :Now u see y im so depressed
jolly_ol_fella:When did this happen
im_blue :Last week
jolly_ol_fella:And what d u mean u can't say
jolly_ol_fella:How is he?
im_blue :Umm..not good to say the least
im_blue :He's dead, so I dumped him off in a field
jolly_ol_fella:I dunno what to say!
im_blue :YOU HAVE JUST BEEN BUZZKILLED U SICK F***ER!!!
jolly_ol_fella:Is this a joke im_blue?
im_blue :JUST F**ING WITH YOU, GET A LIFE DUMBASS
im_blue :That'll teach you to bother about other people!
jolly_ol_fella:That was good. I must say u were pretty convincing
im_blue :Thanks, well..later dude..
jolly_ol_fella:With a great sense of humour, what r u doing in this room?
im_blue :F***ing with people
At that moment, everything became clear to me! Different folks came to different chatrooms for different purposes.
im_blue :Later, I'm gonna screw with fat people in Health and Dieting Room
I didn't feel really good right then. I wanted to cheer someone up, and they'd brought me down. But I was on a mission. I knew it was upto me to save those innocent obese people in the Dieting Room...
(To NOT be continued...)
