I love the Bus Board, yes I do!
« on: January 30, 2015, 08:10:56 AM »
 
I am here to magnify, testify, and to glorify the members of this medium that provide me with so much humor, laughter and an occasional side trip to complete utter absurdity.  I love the people who populate this place, the astute, the not so astute, and even those who just do not get it. 

Period. 

This is such an interesting place to visit and hang for awhile, where you can mix and mingle with the characters involved in the bus community and learn from it all.  So as I sit here this morning and take a little time to reflect on all this I can see it for what it truly might be.

A place where one can learn, a place to grow, and in my case ... to heal.  I am forever grateful. 

Now here is my question:  “Which one of you Mr. Goodwrench Wanna-be’s bailed out on the ignore list?  I am down to only five, and we all know that is not a good number for a proper lynching.”

Have a good weekend, or don't, the choice is still yours.

Whaddayaknow. . . I just looked and found out I'm being ignored by two folk!

OTOH, these boards keep me from loafing in pool halls. . .

I've tried to ignore Don, but I'm having no luck. He is everywhere.

I think he is following me.

How do you find out and where do you find out just who is ignoring you?  Normally I do not even give a Crap but this has been such an issue to some, some actually trying to get a "Most Ignored" quota and some like me could care less but now you have my attention.  Maybe I am not loved like I hope by others.  Only thinking out loud here, my most interest is in articles about bussing although I have been flamed in the past, (horribly) because of their bravery sitting behind a computer. 

With age & health catching up on me quickly and realizing life is so freakin short I don't wish to ignore anyone to offend, I just don't read their post.  But now for the 1st & last time I will see who just hates my crap on here.

I am up to three.  Strongly suspect they are people who showed up, made a fuss and left.  We should automatically de-register people who don't post for six months, then their "ignores" would fall away.  Or you could just bribe a moderator or the list owner, they probably know...

I ignored some people once just so I could see what it looked like, I recall you get to see their post with an empty message box.  That would bug the heck out of me.

I like BCO, I thought anyone who blings out a trailer has to be OK in my book.   8)

I obviously need to work on this as I'm currently not ignored by anyone. So there's no time like the present. Here goes:

What weight oil should I use in my bus?
Is it about getting there quicker or enjoying the scenery?
I wanna buy a $50k bus for 12 dollars and change.
Should I license and insure my bus as commercial or an RV?
I vote for both parties and I usually vote like 6500 times
I'm here illegally
I like bigger government and higher taxes
I think oil should be about $9 a gallon and $6 of that should go to new taxes for obamacare (that one will go over big)
and lastly, I'm not sure what a 9/16's open end wrench is.

There, that has to make at least a couple folks mad enough to unfriend me. Have I left out any of the flame fest fire starters?

Laughing my butt off thinking of how predictable we are as a whole. Reminder: I'm joking people.

Rick

By the way I planned ahead and I am actually "pre-unfriending" Jerry Liebler for when I get to heaven. Eternity may not be long enough for me to unfriend him. LOL. Every once in awhile I wonder where he's gone and then I'm reminded we are two years away from the election and I'm reassured he'll be back.

Who really cares when someones ignores you it just means they don't agree and it pisses them off because you don't agree with them, the last time I looked I was at 6.

The part I like since the BNO doesn't have the ignore feature you piss someone off there they come here to hit the ignore button ;D
