Does Having Trolls Mean You've Succeeded?

Hey everyone!

It's been a while since I've posted a blog post. I really need to get back to it since I've found some new restaurants and places that I should post about. However, this post is not about food. Nope. It's about the *gasp* Starbucks cup crap. So, being the smart ass that I am, I posted the following status update on FB to amuse my friends and myself:

At the time of writing this post, my status update had inexplicably been shared 343 times. Suffice to say that this is the most times any post of mine has ever been shared. I noticed at around 80 shares that I had about 5 friend requests on FB. Of the 5, I accepted 1 since he seemed like a decent fellow. I also received some private messages from people, and I checked some of the shares to see what idiocy people were posting about it. I will share these amusing exchanges or posts below.

The first private message I received was this:

After being called stupid by this complete stranger, I went to the bathroom at work and cried a little. Oh wait, no, I laughed. A lot. Later that night, I replied to this stranger (the profile pic was of a much older lady).

I haven't heard back from Alda, so I can only assume that my new cup design is so good it has rendered her speechless.
The next amusement I noticed was a comment on a share of my post.
The irony is strong with this one.

I don't know if Bertha was talking to the person that shared my post or me, but I'm obviously an above-average-intelligence t-rex.

The next message I received turned quite into the entertainment.

Name not blocked on purpose - feel free to troll the douche nugget.

This one decided that insulting me over nothing was best. He clearly doesn't know me but feels the need to make himself feel like a big, bad man by trying to insult a woman that has an opinion by calling me a "cunt" twice. I decided to not stoop to his level when responding to his messages and took the high road.
A FB friend found this gem, which is now my profile picture.

Not sure who to credit as the original artist of this.

The next thing I spotted was someone shared my post and apparently tried to directly address me:
This made absolutely no sense to me whatsoever. I just had to message this person and try to figure out what the hell she was talking about.
Oh, yeah, that clears things up...

I tried to get more clarity from this woman...


This was just going downhill...I think she meant "weed" country...
So apparently we're friends now?

That's all for now! I'll update with a bit more tomorrow!
