Warcraft Widow Deletes Boyfriend’s Toons – I Nerdrage.
I know this video has been making the rounds today and I know reactions have ranged from laughter to groans of understanding.
But, y’know what? I’m at the :59 second mark and I’m already sick to my stomach.
I’m gonna watch it, and then, I’m gonna write a bit more. Meet me after the vid.
Okay, couple thoughts.
1) She doesn’t just delete his characters. She knows enough to go in and delete actual items. That need “DELETE” confirmation. Which means, she understands enough about the game to know what those items mean.
2) Geeks of Doom’s Tom says “While I’m sure there are plenty Geek-girls of Doom out there who’ll squeal with amusement (having possibly lost quality time with their own boyfriends due to the WarCrack addition), this was a pretty harsh move.”
Y’know what? There’s a Geek-girl of Doom over here who’s more than a bit pissed that this chick thought this was even remotely cool to do.
Fact is, this girl had other options. She could have taken all the gumption and sass she voices during this video and actually talked to her boyfriend. Or she could have broken up with him. Or she could have, if she really wants to be dramatic, staged an “intervention”.
But, no. She pulls a passive aggressive (not to mention mean and costly) stunt that wipes out a lot of time and effort on her bf’s part and then makes herself the injured party.
Maybe his reaction is extreme.
But I think hers is pathetic.
