    Do you ever...

    type out some long, well thought out response only to delete it all for a shorter, quick response, or worse, delete it all together and move on? I find sometimes I'll type something out and then realize it doesn't really go anywhere, or it's just a vent, or someone else can say it way better than I can, so I delete it, or boil it down to a few simple words.

    Sometimes, Ive typed a long and in depth response only to realize after I hit the submit button that my wireless connection had given out and when I go back after refreshing the connection, the entire message is gone and I give up all together. It was probably a run on sentence anyways

    yes, when I realize I have nothing to say, which is more often then not. I should probably delete this post.

    Haha, yeah. A loooong time ago, an ex wanted me back and I stupidly agreed to it, then realized I had been stupid, so I shot him off a pissed-off e-mail. He sent me a long-winded (and quite insulting) e-mail back, and I wrote out another long e-mail... and then deleted it altogether. It seriously felt really good to ignore that e-mail of his.

    sometimes i am arguing with someone and after we both type out long dreadful arguments that in most cases somehow relate to his/her momma, i just say shut up. and that ends it.

    also sometimes i type out really long detailed responses that take me like 15 mins and are really cool but halfway through it i gotta go do something and by the time i come back the connection time out and then i get pissed and forget about it.
    I break parts like i change my clothes.... Very often.

    RIDING SINCE 01!

    I sometimes do it with short responses too

    you just have to ask yourself... why the hell am I wasting my time trying to argue on a subject I don't really care about?
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I'd probably have at least 25% more posts if I didn't do exactly that.
