Winners Are Stupid


Hello?! If you’ve entered a contest to win concert tickets, perhaps you could check your freaking email occasionally so that if you won said tickets you’ll know about it?
 
Sad thing today–the winner I’d randomnly picked for tonight’s Green Day concert in Atlanta did not reply back with his contact info (I need his ‘real’ name so he can pick up his tickets at Will Call). So not only did I have to send mail to this guy saying ‘sorry dude’, but I had to pick another winner (who had supplied his real name) and just hope he can make it to a concert that starts in six hours.
 
Another gripe about winners: When I ask you for your mailing address to send you stuff like t-shirts or autographed pics of the Frag Dolls, give me your whole freakin’ address! Guess what? As important as you are to your mommy, I don’t know where the hell you live. Sending me only your street address doesn’t work either. I actually require a freaking city and state. Not to mention a zip code! Grrrr! I end up exchanging three or four mails with some of these people before I have all the info I need to mail a freaking t-shirt!!!!
 
From here on out, you either give me EVERYTHING I ask you for from the get-go, or NO T-SHIRT FOR YOU.
 
So let it be written, so let it be done.

    Oh, this is what you were talking about when you said you were a difficult person to be around. You average 5 comments per post on your personal blog TriXie, 98% of which are "regulars". Why are you bitching to us about this?"autographed pics of the frag dolls" … WTF? is that suppose to be a prize? When we are married(approx 3 1/2 years), if you pull this crap you are going to be placed in the kitchen for a little baking and cleaning, cause I am not putting up with it, do you understand me young lady? BAD PANDA!(which is a shame because I just got done saying what a kind and gentle panda you have been recently).

    The regulars post comments, but there are about a thousand people reading each day that don’t comment. Wow, if you think I can cook and clean, you’re barking up the wrong Trixie, TL. And here’s a tip, I don’t respond well to being given orders.

  3. you crack me up TriXie

  4. Hehehe. Very good points Trixie. Of course, being the "smart" winner that I am I made sure to send you all of my info in the first shot. Can I have a T-shirt now (j/k) :)The other funny thing I realized was that my concert REVIEW was waaaaaaaaay to long. I re-read the contest rules and it turns out they want entries 500 words or less! 500 words?!?! Whoops. What am I supposed to describe in 500 words? Thats crazy. Oh well, as long as it was entertaining to read then I’m happy. I guess they didn’t want people to actually wirte about their experiences. And TL, you are even scaring me, and I’m not even the one you are "stalking". Down boy.

    winners ARE toopid. I am convinced of that because in the last week I have leveled DOWN from a 25 to a 22 in big team battle. Last night it was the classic gambling syndrome "if I play just one more game maybe I’ll get my money back" – well 1am, level 22, called it quits.

    "And here’s a tip, I don’t respond well to being given orders."Who said you will be given a chance to respond? you will be too busy cleaning pots and pans. Regarding not being a good cook, I don’t really care, you will cook something because you are told to cook and you will not talk back to me. You need to come to grips with your place in life, I can tell that college and your job has gotten you all mixed about where you belong…I will set that straight real quick. I would suggest you invest in a stylish little trixie apron though.Face it TriX, you and I were meant to be together. I will teach you the ropes of being a good wife and in return you can make me dinner and do my laundry. I think that’s fair. I would argue that 1,000 people a day number by the way. unique IP’s? I doubt it. You using ebay counters to track that or something.

    Trixie lover…calm down there buddy.Just because people dont comment…doesnt mean they dont read. I have…atleast 50 hits per post on my blog, but I get a comment here and there. Also….3 1/2 years? Why not know? When is 6th grade graduation? Sheesh.

    Trixie, sometimes the hardest lessons learned in life are "what could have been". For those who don’t send you their entire contact information then they will learn for the next time. Move on impassionately and let them have the story to tell their friends about what could have been.Trixie-Lover: You must be taking the "Lil Kim" approach of trying to be outlandish to get press. Your yuk’s are tiresome, first at Major Nelson.com and now toward Trixie. Of course, it might be that your diaper is full and that’s why you’re cranky….don’t know…don’t care. What might be a good outlet for you is to start you own blog and sprew there. Honest…it’s good therapy. Of course, that would result in others "attacking you" with drivel. Think about it.Trixie, perhaps you should have a 24-hour rule that if the person doesn’t contact you within 24-hours of the event then you move onto the next name. That way you don’t get caught "short" like the concert situation. I always look forward to winning prizes and thanks for the one’s I’ve received so far.
