This Taylor Swift Fan Thinks I Should Get Hit By A Bus, But I Don’t Know

You know what I like about my job? Getting personal feedback from readers on Friday nights! You know what I love about my job? When the reader takes the time to not only offer comments on my articles, but also suggestions on how to live my life…or not my live my life.

I know. It’s a twist you probably didn’t see coming.

While I ate dinner with friends (AKA perfected my Taylor Swift dart board collection that will soon be available on Etsy), I received this wonderfully helpful email from someone who clearly felt so moved by a recent Taylor Swift article I wrote that just had to share his thoughts with me.

Where do I begin with how much I appreciate his insight. I don’t even know. But that’s probably because I’m a moron.

The only thing that concerns me about this period-less poetry (besides the fact it’s sent from an iPod) is his suggestion that I get hit by the next car or bus.

First of all, which one? When offering death suggestions, people need to specify. Second of all, why is it either/or between hell and death-by-bus? Are the two mutually exclusive??

Ugh, I’m confused. Guys, I’m throwing this out to you. A little crowdsourcing if you will. What should I do? Bus? Car? Neither? Hell?

I haven’t struggled with a decision this much since Chipotle forced me to choose between no guac on my burrito or pay an extra dollar for guac on my burrito.

      What I find most fascinating is the thought of someone with “daughters and granddaughters” taking the time to stand up for Taylor Swift and write you hate mail. It sounds like they have set a fine example for future generations to aspire to. Keep on living the way you have been.

        That’s what makes it so charming! He’s a grandfather.

        I guess thats why they need Taylor Swift to look up to.

    • BurritoBitch

      Always pay the extra dollar.

      Wow, he’s concerned about who his daughters and granddaughters look up to, but progresses to write an email like this? Such hypocrisy… Could this be an example of why we have such shitty kids roaming around?
