I should know better. I do know better.

I've been really depressed lately, and last night I ended up doing something stupid because of it.
I comment regularly on articles of Huffington Post. I know, of course, that not everybody will agree, and that some people will be obnoxious about it. Last night I commented on a story that ticked me off, and I used the word "egregious" in it. I thought "unacceptable" was WAY too tame. Well, one Prince Charming commented back saying that I'd invented the word and he called me a "FFFFFOOOOOOOLLLLL." I should have ignored him but I replied, inviting him to check the dictionary because it's a real word. He sent back a seriously snide and nasty reply. I commented back that I was sorry, I thought he actually OWNED dictionary.
I know I shouldn't have gotten into it with him. I should just have let that ignorant donkey bray without giving him fodder by reacting. But sometimes I just get tired from all the years of being put down and insulted. I guess I didn't show much more maturity than he did.
