Another Post About Touchy Feely People, Only Written Much Better

A while ago, in the comments under another post, I lamented that when I try to write a serious post about something that is bugging me, it always comes out long, whiny, convoluted and repetitious. Here is a perfect example of what I’m talking about. Here’s my post, and here’s a much more succinct and eloquent post about the same thing.
I read it and thought “god damn, I wish I could write half as well.” So, because we can never say this enough, I decided to link to it. I’m also glad to see that I’m a. not alone and b. not over the top.

  1. Carin, Carin, Carin. Somebody needs to touch you non-consensually with a confidence stick. Hell, whoever it is should probably beat the jeezily crapshite out of you with it. Your post was no worse than hers, nor was hers any better than yours. Only difference I saw is she used a few bigger words in a couple of spots. You’re saying the exact same thing in 2 slightly different ways. And when I say slightly, I’m not kidding. You both tell people to use their words (for the same reason, no less) and are using transportation examples to illustrate the exact same point. You’re both putting across the same valid criticisms and bits of advice and if we’re being honest, if I had to pick only one of those to show somebody, I’d probably pick yours. And no, that’s not just because I prefer sleeping indoors. If anything, you make the point in a more entertaining way, plus there’s the added bonus of not apologizing for ranting on a blog.
