stupid and senseless: don’t pizza lecki off


It’s the General Election Day in the UK! Apparently the Conservatives are on course to win…

…and if they do I will probably join the circus. It was nice knowing you all!
It’s also Comey Testifies Day in the US! And World’s Oceans Day. And… World’s Brain Tumour Day (I didn’t know that!)

It’s also I need a break from politics and shitty life day.

So, I’m going to revisit my favourite person who I have neglected of late due to apathy and having better things to do.

Here’s a post about Jared Padalecki being stupid.

Now I want pizza

Long story short: Jared ordered food using Favor. It didn’t turn up. He got pissed, huffed and puffed and took his complaints to Twitter.

I have no idea what happened past that his food didn’t show up, and he was annoyed.

Somehow he got talking to customer service and this tweet happened:

Dearest @ Favor “Kobe” at customer support needs to be fired. I’m sure he’d land happily with @united.

First of all dearest? What is this a greeting card? A letter to a long list friend? How courtship began in the 1950s? How do you waste seven out of one hundred and forty characters on dearest? His Twitter game is all the way off. Personally, I would have gone for a succinct ‘Yo’ or ‘Oi’. There’s passive aggressiveness and then there’s concision. The latter is more important.

Also, why – why – is he posting this person’s name on Twitter? Hasn’t he learnt? Oh, that’s right. Dude doesn’t give a fuck.

The tweet was posted (and deleted) in April. I didn’t see it back then, although, I did hear about it. I didn’t realise he straight up said the dude needed to be fired. For something that’s probably not his fault. And the ‘land happily with @united‘. I can’t work out what that was.

He wants Kobe to be violently mishandled off or onto a plane or just in general?

Or he thinks Kobe will land a job at United due to his poor customer service skills?

Or he’s just an idiot who really didn’t need to bring up United at all?

Correct answer wins a prize.

I saw the Pada Defense Warrior League hard at work. They insisted that Jared would never wish violence on anyone and that he felt horrible about what happened to the man on that United plane. And that he was within his rights to complain, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

Something tells me that Jared felt more vindicated than horrible* when he saw that video. He was probably thinking, “THIS IS HOW TERRIBLY THEY TREAT ME MINUS THE VIOLENCE AND STUFF!!!!!!!!!”.
Everyone on his contact list probably got that video plus an essay about his unfair treatment.

Dearest Friends, if you haven’t yet had an opportunity to see this disgraceful act, here you go. Much of this justifies my complaints over the years!!!!!! I mean, weather delays, being forced to check a bag and every other petty thing imaginable almost equals the severity of this video when you add them all up and take into account my pain and suffering!….

Jim Beaver was also going at it with some fan, claiming that Jared has a right to complain. People were surprised, but Jim Beaver is never the voice of reason. Ever. That dude has no sense. I know I should respect my elders but people like him make it hard

I’m sure Kobe is just fine, but I am truly disturbed (yet not surprised) that Jared has no problem belittling people in this way. I’m disturbed that so many people think this is okay.

He talks about treating people fairly and kindly but doesn’t do the same to people he deems unworthy. No one who works in customer service is paid enough to deal with the bullshit. Sometimes, there’s absolutely nothing they can do, and customers getting pushy won’t change that.

On the flip side, yes customer support workers can be flippant and they shouldn’t be, but I probably would be too. You’re basically listening to people complain all day long. Sometimes as a human being (who breathes oxygen), you have to consider that the other person is just doing their job and that job doesn’t involve kissing your ass.

Like I’ve said before, the common denominator in Jared’s bad customer service experiences is him.

Anyway, if it’s alright for Jared to do it, I’m going to tweet the CW** and demand that they fire Jared because he’s annoying.

Hopefully he lands happily @ somewhere far away from any television screen.

*I’m joking, wildly speculating, opinion, didn’t happen, please don’t sue, or leave abusive messages etc etc. 

**Not actually going to do this. See above. 

stupid and senseless: part infinity – Jared Padalecki is a human being that ‘breathes oxygen’


STUPID & SENSELESS: PART INFINITY!!!!!

(ETA: he’s done it again)

FINALLY, an edition about the man that started it all! We knew it was coming and here it is. I would first like to announce that, not only is Jared a human being that breathes oxygen, he’s also a superhero:

LOL. Someone posted this on the ONTD post and I laughed myself SILLY. No wonder this dude has a complex.

Anyway!

In today’s edition, a server in Minnesota was extremely mean to Jared and apparently ruined his entire night, month, life, bad hair day, Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving as well as his entire adult life. So in response, he publicly blasted her on Facebook, posted her picture and was unapologetic about it. In fact, an unedited version of the post is still up (or it was last time I checked)

ETA: He apparently removed the post and had this to say (after the fact of course):

In regards to my recent post, please please PLEASE do not send ill-will in anybody’s direction. I felt it necessary to voice my opinion, as I have made a promise to myself that I will not let somebody mistreat me just to swallow it, as if I “deserve” it. It’s a promise I hope y’all can make to yourselves as well. But it’s in the past now. And I sincerely hope everybody involved will be better for it. Please, for the love of Chuck, don’t send any hatred or ill-will in their direction. That is the exact OPPOSITE of what I want.

He’s still a tool and it was EXACTLY what he wanted.

ETA 2: Oh, wow. Apparently lawyers are involved now. He’s really messed up badly this time. SMH. More & the original post under the cut.

ETA 3: The person that Jared initially responded to has graciously allowed me to add their (now deleted) comment to this post. It can be found below.

I’m pleased to announce that SPN fans are still pleasant individuals…


Or not, because what I’m announcing is the opposite.

So, I was checking my emails from YouTube the other day – I do so every now and then because I have it filtered on account due to too many annoying notifications. I have a couple of clips from Supernatural uploaded, typically clips from or before season 3 and they tend to get more comments than any of my amazing videos that I took the time to put together for no real reason at all. My most popular video is one set to a Nickelback song with awful audio because I used Audacity to cut the song and screwed up somehow. It’s kind of fitting.

To get to the story, what happened was that I saw that someone had left a comment on one of these videos – something along the lines of, ‘[Name], shut the fuck up’ and I went onto the video page and was confused. I don’t really read the comments because…they’re all the same shit and it’s been, what…eight years? So I replied with a simple ‘??’ – perhaps I could actually asked a question but, ain’t nobody got time for that. They hit me back and told me to shut the fuck up too! I thought it was hilarious. I pointed out that I was genuinely wondering why they had just randomly told someone to shut the fuck up (without responding to them – hence why I even bothered replying) and their response was ‘Oh, I thought you had the same opinion. My bad’? (more…)

I am officially no longer a fan of anything*


This is kind of a response to this: Vision. Fans all have different visions etc. Yeah. Anyway. Rant incoming.

nolonger


*Well, except for Manchester United, Chris Hemsworth, certain boybands and Simon Baker. And Tom Hardy on the days when he doesn’t annoy the shit out of me (I am pretty sure most of what he says is just pseudo-babble).

Anyway, for the sake of this post I will mostly refer to football/soccer fans because they’ve really captured my disdain for ‘fans’. At least with SPN, there’s the ‘these people have [insert adjective] fantasies about [insert annoying person affiliated with SPN]’ aspect. It’s stupid but whatever. They’re gullible consumers and whatnot.

Either way, sports fans don’t really have that excuse. Man-crushes don’t count.

Anyway, I used to read the Guardian for sports comments. Basically, I’m the kind of football fan that spends two hours POSTING IN CAPS on Twitter and after that, I go into lurk mode. I stopped reading the Guardian Sports section because it was just full of silly opinion pieces in which the writers would argue against points that they had been writing about for weeks. There was also an aggressive campaign to get a manager fired which was distasteful. In the end, the amount of rage said manager (of my team, no less!) generated was hilarious to me (well, not during matches). They also have this annoying habit of not linking sources. I get it, they have a business to run but it is kind of frustrating to read an article that assumes the readers knows what the fuck they’re talking about it despite providing no information. They do it a lot and I am over it.

So I started using r/soccer, which is basically the subreddit for everything soccer related. I actually started off at the sub for my team but it was very all late teens/early males’ ish and kind of hilariously bad so I switched to r/soccer.

It’s even worse. (more…)

stupid and senseless: november round up edition

Need I say more? This big-headed buffoon probably answers to Padajesus. *eye roll*

ETA: The instagram link originally led to a post in which Jared posted some kind of manip of him as Jesus and basically LOL’d all over it and stated the [his] head was too big (the irony) instead of saying his prayers and moving past it swiftly. If anyone has a screencap please let me know! The one time I don’t take screenshots Rapunzelecki goes ahead and deletes the post! Ay dios mio! 

Dios-mio

This gif seems fitting both for this point and the rest of the post. Sigh.

This is what happens when fictional characters make you lose your shit


So, I was minding my own business while watching Numbers and I decided to find out if anyone else found Amita (the girlfriend, main character, genius mathematician, all-round Mary Sue) annoying.

Lo and behold, the first hit was a LJ community called ‘Amita Sucks*’ and it honestly cracked me the fuck up.

stupid and senseless: once a douchebag, always a ‘deuchebag’.


First things first…

I made that as a joke, but it’s now a very pleasant viewing experience. 😀

This isn’t really a specific post but more a round up of Jared’s douchey ways.

  • Talking about accidentally hurting his kid at cons. WHY? I really don’t understand. They’re not cute stories, or ‘lulz, aw, what a shame’, they’re just ridiculous. I think the general gist was:

I put my sons head through the wall

OKAY? AND? SHUT THE FUUUUUUCK UP.

stupid and senseless: the ‘no shit, Sherlock!’ edition


I’ve posted about Jared’s website before (I think it’s the previous post lol). One thing I didn’t see are the excessive adverts all over the page (my phone spared me somehow!). I did take another look and, I read the articles, had a browse through the posts. It was very obvious that whoever set up the site intended to make money from it. I couldn’t work out if the articles on there were copied or not but there are a lot of freelance writers who are hired to write content for other people. It was kind of obvious that Jared’s only involvement was attaching his name and likeness to it. Now, I don’t know if he was adding the little notes to the Facebook posts or if that was someone else – but he easily could have been doing so.

The latest edition of “stupid and senseless”


I’m just going to use Jared’s words and refer to everything dumb that he does as Stupid and Senseless. 

Because his last airline rant wasn’t enough, he decided to throw yet another hissy fit and call a US airlines employee a jerk, and an “a-hole” before tweeting a picture of the guy.

heavenatus has been gr8.


I’m sure when Sup3rnatural wins best fandumbdom award tomorrow, they will all be ECSTATIC. What is better in life than winning an award that YOU spent HOURS voting for?! Heck, some of you even voted 6,000+ (LOOK AT YOUR LIFE CHOICES, BITCHES) times. You will be rewarded with an award that you will never hold in your hands. An award that may not be screened live on television. An award that will be on screen for a few minutes if it is screened.

How GR8.

After you’ve retweeted and reblogged the award, what happens then? Does fandom win a prize? Do they win MONEY?! Or maybe the prize is more seasons!!! More conventions (that you’re paying for), honestly the LIST OF PROMISING POSSIBILITIES is endless.

Anyway, short recap this of this season.

  • Cas has done fuck all
  • Crowley has done fuck all but kidnap Kevin
  • Does anyone remember what Kevin looks like?
  • Fans wanted Sam’s DAYS OF OUR CAKE FILLED LIVES soap opera to be taking place in his head. They were disappointed.
  • Dean is involved in a bromantic relationship with a VAMPIRE.
  • Everyone wants Sam and Dean to die. Okay, maybe that’s just me.

So basically you could pretty much start watching the season from this point because nothing has happened.

Things to look forward to Reasons to spare yourself from the torture:

  • Sam and Dean LARPing. Oh yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! OMG!!!!111 SAM AND DEAN COSPLAYING OH GOD OH GOD HOW EXCITING. I don’t think so.
  • Felicia Day. Yeah, fuck you too show. Fuck. You. Too.
  • ….plot in the last three episodes.

GR8-N3SS.
