    Guess who Mr. X is!

    A conversation I had throughout the month of February where somebody performed a perfect parody of himself. If I were to parody him, I couldn't do better - it hits all the notes, one at a time, pitch perfect, exactly as before. The initial enthusiasm and implication one should be grateful to be paid back a debt, the hints at a greater (though obviously nonexistent) reward to ensure the target pays attention, the repeated delays/excuses, the final extended silence. I'd laugh, but I've seen this episode before.... and before... and before. Hell, one time several years ago he pretended to be trying to find me throughout an entire GenCon, telling people he couldn't locate me but had money to pay me. It was hilarious, because I put myself in his path multiple times to see him find ways to "not find me".

    I'm waiting for the next phase, which comes after the extended silence - sudden introduction of a family tragedy or illness. Then silence for years. Then it all starts again.

    Mr. X

    I owe you, what, 1200? I got another 2000 to donate.

    Something in that region, yes. The exact figure escapes me at the moment.

    Mr. X

    Does it matter too much when I'm giving you an extra 2 grand?

    Russ Morrissey

    I suppose not!

    So when can I expect the happy day of my repayment? We've had this conversation more than once before, IIRC.

    Mr. X

    My payday is the 15th, I'm working on getting it early and into my paypal. I'll get that taken care of first, then donate to the kickstarter is my current plan. I own a physical store (selling electronic cigarettes) now, so my income is a lot more steady and reliable.

    So, it appears to be the 17th!

    22:14
    Mr. X

    Yep! And a bank holiday lol tuesday man i need your paypal email.

    Should have at least five hundred for ya, and hopefully get the rest (and more) soon. Please note im the one who approached you

    $500, huh? Not exactly the $3200 you started the conversation with. Don't worry about anything more than the $1200 you owe me. My Paypal address is russmorrissey@gmail.com.

    19:40
    Mr. X

    Oh, dont sweat it. You're getting more. It was my mistake not to account for paypal fees and server costs. (Though i still think the host was ripping us off for dedicated). Ive got five or six years of bad karma to fix.

    27th... and so tomorrow will be a full month. Is that the day when you pop up and shout "BAZINGA"?

    I'd call to ask who, but I think it's the middle of the night over there, isn't it?

    I'm guessing Mr Windows Tattoo (backwards).
    Robin Williams: "In England, if you commit a crime, the police don't have a gun and you don't have a gun. If you commit a crime, the police will say, 'Stop, or I'll say stop again.'"

    PWD: "you're the seed, the relationship is the soil, and the love and attention and work you put into the relationship is the sun and the rain that feeds it. What grows from that is what you always were meant to become."

    Did he do something (to you specifically) pummel worthy?

    I'm actually prophetic:

    Chill man. Im not planning to really communicate with you. My mom has major surgery ths friday and that has piority for me. Ill be paypalling you soon and going on my way.
    I adore the "chill man" which implies that waiting 7 years is being impatient.

    Oh, I know the general plot, and some of the (high? Low?) points, I'm just looking for details.

    You should thank this gentleman for helping you to work on your patience!

    He blew smoke in my face. This was not followed immediately by an abject apology.

    I could add a host of other minor annoyances he generated, but that was enough to warrant a thrashing.

    Do you have a theory on why he is attempting contact? There isn't a hope in hell of salvaging any sort of professional relationship or friendship(I assume). What is he hoping to gain?

    So are we talking about litlbeast's ex-, or someone else? I should probably just stop trying to keep up.
