Calling out a know-it-all on Facebook

Had something very similar about bins, and what items go in which bin, one different bin for everyday of the week for different collections, (glad I was only staying there a month for work, London.) I’m Going back to 2006 and they have been doing it for 4years already.
He was able to tell me an Item, was in the wrong bin,

but HE didn’t known which one I needed to put it into,

to comply with council collection regulation,
and to not have the bin rejected, or be fined , for not recycling correctly, it was a Pringle tube, no lid as that was in the correct bin,
go figure that one out,
he lives there, maybe different council area, he lives in !!!, but was employed to know everything for them he worked for, went back and forth for 10 mins, put in property and.

Just throw it in the street bin later.

Apparently, I caused another disturbance in FB world when I tried to get rid of some left-over inventory from many months back. Someone thought I was selling my own 3D prints w/out the original manufacturer’s packaging and pirating my own prints. :smiley: I wish it was that profitable to do that.

Then the know it all person copies and pastes screenshots of my own Cults3D page:


And says:

After stating that they’re my own CAD; I own the design’s license; and I 3D printed them, I just had to show my “original” manufacturer’s packaging in all of its glory, Ziploc bag, which also doubles as my children’s snack bag. For those who bought from me, you know that’s my “signature” original manufacturer packaging and how I like to recycle Amazon bags to minimize plastic pollution. :smiley:

Ah, some people… so ridiculous.

What a joke. Apparently, he didn’t think my ziploc packaging was original enough. I can only laugh. :smile: :sweat_smile:

Maybe “he” should ask someone to have his title
changed from ‘Top Contributor’ to ‘Top A-hole’ …

Top Jobbie would be better, it wouldn’t necessarily trigger him, because he’d likely think it innocent, but look up the British vernacular for ‘Jobbie’ and you’ll see the joke is on him.

That’s priceless! :rofl:

Probably his life’s work to make sure everyone installs or reinstalls their outlets ground pin up.

This person has obviously never bought 3D printed parts before. Manufacturer’s packaging in the 3D printing world can vary from professional packaging to a simply ziplock bag as you’ve shown. B&L from Vietnam sends most of their kits in a plain box with parts in normal bags with just a business card size piece of paper with kit artwork. Something that anyone could get off their FB and print out. So definitely a waste of time dealing with this person.

This is what happens when you don’t let us know you have extra parts for sale. :cry: :joy::roll_eyes:

According to my mother, I have a Great Grandfather who served on German tanks in World War I. She claims to have pictures but cannot find them. I have long wondered if he served on an A7V or a captured British tank.

That would be an interesting family fact to discover.

You can even see the British Roundel still on this German MkIV.

Fascinating family connection and those photos would be amazing to see. Hope she can find them.
On my dad’s side I have a great-uncle who served on Q-Boats in the Great War. He was a boy sailor and lied about his age to get in. Merchant Navy between the wars and on the Nelson during the Second. Was on deck watching the Normandy landings and then off to the Pacific for the last few months. Mom’s uncles were Navy too. One lost on the Royal Oak at Scapa, the other was on Jamaica on the arctic convoys. He survived the war, met him a few times when I was a kid. Can’t imagine what they must’ve seen and lived through.

It gets to be Frustrating at times lol . I started and mange a modeling group on Facebook with over 4.3k members since 2013 and any issues we’ve had were dealt with accordingly. And i agree about the toxic garbage ive seen so much of it. Personally i have a few people ive became friends with over years to answer any questions that i may have and because i love it i do my own research lol hence why i have a massive library on YouTube :man_shrugging:

Stuff like this is one reason why I deleted my Facebook account.

Rudeness is rampant. I have long said you can always tell who has never had to back up their words and been in a fistfight in their entire life. Very easy to tell.

Other things were just inexplicable such as suddenly being blocked from a CD group. I obeyed all rules, was never rude or confrontational, etc. I was given no warning nor explanation, Messages to a mod and admin went unanswered.

Basically all it was about on that group was posting a photo of a CD and discussing it. It’s not like I posted Boxer - “Below The Belt.” :smile:

Another group did things like delete a post in which I linked a short interview article I wrote that concerned the musician discussed in the post. Those are just a few examples.

I just was fed up. I don’t need it and life is much better without Facebook, the miserable sots, and the Self Appointed Polizei AKA SAPs.

I firmly believe life was a lot less stressful before the invention of Facebook, Twitter, and other big social media! Far too many folks looking to boost their own egos by raining on strangers’ parades…

Social media also creates unrealistic expectations and dissatisfaction in some or many.

Guy I know, big BSer. Has all kinds of Captain Everything stories.

Supposedly, as one example, he drew a handgun on someone who was being a little jerky or something in a supermarket.

Me: “Wow. I’d never be able to get away with that…” :roll_eyes:

But a few years ago, the wife came to me with something like, “Did you see Kyle’s [not his real name] Facebook post?! He’s buying 120 acres [or whatever it was] in [an expensive real estate market] and opening a bed and breakfast! You see what other people are doing?!”

Me: “Another one of his tall tales, that’s what he’s doing.”

But she was initially buying it.

No one posts about gambling away a paycheck or getting a DUI or they’re cheating on their spouse and the spouse caught them. No, it’s often just shameless boasting and wild exaggeration that it seems too many believe.
