Human Nature.

I feel that I'm civil and nice to most people for most part. People picking on bad players or teaching other how they should or should not play at the table irk me a little and will set me off. O yeah, and sore losers who curse and swear when leaving the table irk me also. Other than that, I'm very calm at the tables.

I'm just trying to see how many of us are evil, like I am. I'm watching the contenders on the t10 ladder play as I sit out and wait out the rest of the month. I encourage them all and wish them all good luck, but, why do I get such pleasure out of watchin them fall out. Is it that I'm inherently a bad person? (bad speller for sure)

Is it just me or are there other good pso's out there that feel the way I do?

Please thoughts and comments.

An interesting question.

I think you are right to congratulate the front runners, however you should genuinely be happy for them... in most cases. There are a few egomaniacs that deserve to be taken down a notch or two however for the most part we should relish in the victories of the front runners.

Your time will come and there is no reason to secretly or overtly take pleasure in their failures. I don't think you are a bad person perhaps just feeling a little bitter?

Played the last PSO I could last month in the 5:30 (my time,EST) event,cashed,knew I would be in the top 98 after that event posted on the leaderboard,but knew it would be close and that I had roughly 50-100 players behind me that I was rooting for to come up short in the last 2 events of the month.

You worked at this all month and you have qualms over taking satisfaction in people coming up short of catching you?

dat oughta punch you in the you-know-whats................provided she can find them that is. LOL

Good luck you 2,I know sitting on that result at the end is torture,been there,done that.

Not qualms Moxie. I'm not berating myself. And thank god. dat doesn't do much in these forums. tho, she is asking more and more of late. I was just waxing poetic for a moment and thought I'd make this post. lol

Lots less to sweat now. L_Goose just busted out. I'm sooo bad.

All i can say eventhough we are on the same team and try to help each other out with our games all of us are still trying achive the same goal my opinion is that it must be human nature for some part of us to want the other person to do bad so we can pass them on the leaderboard just like 24 in nascar wants to beat the 48 team but me personally dont hold any bad fellings against anybody that may fellings of rooting against somebody because that same person is usually trying to help you at one point or another in that same month so dont feel bad you are a good dude hope this helps
