General Question

Don't you love to answer questions without reading the detail and then get disappointed when you read the details?

Asked by Sueanne_Tremendous (11181 points ) June 5th, 2009

For instance, I saw this question: “How do you start a juice bar?” Well, I wanted to be a smart ass and say “You prime it with gas and then pull the cord until it starts”. Yea. yea. Bad joke I know. But honestly, some of these questions positively scream for smart ass answers. Anyway, your task is to find a Fluther Q that you want to post a smart ass answer to but would feel bad if you did it on the posters thread. Do it here instead! god i am lame

Not as disappointed as I got when I read the details to this question.

My smart ass answer is “maybe that is how you see it but actual human beings think differently”.

I must admit that felt pretty good.

What is this “feel bad” thing you speak of?

Sueanne_Tremendous's avatar

@Blondesjon: I know. I am guilty of posting smart ass answers. But I honestly do feel bad at times and try not to do it if the poster needs real advice.

@GAMBIT Glad you feel good. Although that answer wasn’t smart it certainly came from an ass.

ohhh I’m tingling with anticipation of GAMBITS next attempt

what are these “smart ass answers” you speak of? I certainly would never ever do such a thing.

i mean, people come to fluther with serious questions – well thought out, literate, rational questions. and they want answers on those questions, no matter what the girl/guy does to show s/he likes/doesn’t like him/her, no matter whether or not they believe God exists, and no matter why they’re wondering what fluther is, despite having already signed up for it.

and i’m here to answer them.~

I do. But I only do it to not-so-serious questions, because I’m just like that. If I asked something seriously and someone was a dick about it, that would bother me. But if I asked something less serious.. Like hypothetically speaking “What temperature should I bake my chicken at?” I would EXPECT smartass answers and give them all the lurve in the world.

All the lurve in the world you say?

350 degree for 30 minutes.

chelseababyy's avatar

@brettvdb Yes, all the lurve in the world.

I just really wish that people would use the site properly and summarize their question in the title field instead of asking a totally different question, like that emotional affairing woman a few threads away who titled her question about the sanctity of marriage but her details were a huge spluff of her life story. When I read it on the front page, my mind starts formulating an answer, which is promptly thrown off course when the details don’t jive.

@Sueanne_Tremendous – I am totally confused. I tried to give you what you asked for. This is lame.
