The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]

Death On Two Legs …

Following on from Monday’s declaration that this is the week of emotional posts, here’s one I’ve written about disappointment, anger and distrust.

For total transparency, this is about a situation some of the people who comment on this blog – and myself – found ourselves in about 10 years ago.

Again, it’s all done and dusted now, but at the time, I cannot tell you the emotional toil it had on us because the implications for our lives and livelihoods was potentially devastating.

Obviously we got through it and managed to do it without too many scars, so I’m very proud of everyone who helped us – both personally & professionally – and I hope when they read it, they remember how strong we were not how horrid that time was.

You claimed you were sincere.

That the words you spoke were the words you meant.

That your belief went beyond anything said – or heard – before.

Then you went and did something quite the opposite.

Something with malice in its intent.

Something designed to destruct from the core and to the core.

Then you apologized and claimed it was a mistake.

A moment of misguided judgement.

A decision of foolish naivety.

And that you were sincere.

That the words you spoke were the words you meant.

That your belief went beyond anything said – or heard – before.

Then you went and did something quite the opposite.


Fuck you for making us believe.



Fuck you for tricking us into giving you our best.

Then bringing out our worst.

Just so you could justify your actions.

Which you had planned all along.

As the [updated & paraphrased] old saying goes:

Fool me once, shame on you.
Fool me twice, shame on me.
Fool me twice, pulling off pretty much the exact same stunt all within 2 weeks of each other, put me in a cell & throw away the key.

10 points for the anger. youre much more fucking acceptable like this.

0 points for bringing up a fucked up situation i despised the first time around.

1000 points for reminding me how we destroyed the money grabbing, thieving, lying wanker. wonder where he is now? hopefully under a fucking rock where the prick belongs.

now enough with this sentimental fucking shit campbell. it either bores me to fucking tears or makes me fucking angry. and youll be responsible if it results in an upset child or wife and ill make you pay like a scorned exwife and i know how fucking evil those fuckers can be.

Shall I open a book on him being a politician, a BDA MD or dead?

A real life story of triumph over adversity. No wonder you remember it so clearly. This post sounds like you still are very angry. I hope you have managed to let it go. It is from a long time in the past and we all came out of it and have done pretty well since. Remember, we won. That’s all that mattered in that situation.

hes a sentimental, vindictive, revenge focused fart. he lets go of fucking nothing. he still wants to destroy me for eating his packet of fucking maltesers from his desk in 1997. fucking freak.

You’re such a Dad. Trust me, I am over it … but maybe not as over it as I originally thought given the level of anger that came out as I wrote this. Seriously, it even surprised me.

But it is in the past, though as Andy says, if there was the chance to fuck him over one more time, I would be at the front of the queue to dish it out … but that’s just my Italian genes. Or that will be my excuse when I present my case to the judge. Ha.

its your best fucking trait.

I like the anger but what are you all going on about? It sounds like you’re talking about a party that I wasn’t invited to and that never happens.

You could be mugged and not know what was going on.

Comment by DH

Is Billy worth mugging?

My sparkling personality is worth millions.

And fuck you Dave.

Hope you all stuck in the knife and twisted it ten ways from Sunday. I hate fuckers like that.

Comment by Angel Stylite

Yes, but not as much as I would have liked … or would still like. Justice was served, but it wasn’t a generous enough portion for my liking. But then a life sentence on Mars was probably never going to happen.

It is nice to know that sometimes the good guys win.

Comment by Pete

Goodish. ; )

Using an emoticon is almost as criminal Pete.

Comment by Rob

If ever there was a situation that justified an outpouring of bad language, it was this. Was it really 10 years ago Robert?

Comment by Lee Hill

The tone of this post reminds me of how my professional life used to be. Horrid memories countered by a positive outcome.
