If You're So Great, Shut Up

Reading through things, and came across this little quip on meowlet's LJ. It justmade me want to stand up and cheer:

"Some people want to destroy things and burn them down. Some people want to impress people with their force, knowledge, wisdom, abilities, or their body. Some people want to break all the rules, defy convention, and then call it a sacrifice. Let me preach for a second: It isn't a sacrifice if you shout it from the rooftops. It isn't a burden if you give it away."

Fuckin' Teenagers

OK, no offense to any of you that might be under 20, but this really annoys me.

So someone wants an icon done, right? Mails me all the specifics (a really stupid easy one, but hey, no accounting for taste). This was Wednesday...right before the holidays. OK, I get it done, and go to mail it to them, and I had to go look up their LJ userinfo to remind myself who i did it for (didn't say, in the e-mail). Pull up their info, and what do I see as the default icon for their journal, but the very one they just asked me to make.

Gee, pardon me for taking a moment to have a life during a holiday. Least they could have done was to mail me and tell me they didn't need it anymore, but apparently they don't teach etiquette and politeness to angsty 15-year old girls in Minnesota with no friends. So glad I took the time to do the work for nothing.

OK, OK, this shouldn't have me this riled up, but it really pisses me off. Someone ASKED for my work, and then got someone else to do it as well, and didn't bother telling me the work wasn't needed. That's just disrespectful, and I don't appreciate it.

Fuck 'em. I need food, and then I'm working on a new icon for redheadevilchiq.
