Friendly Teasing or just MEAN?

The guild I joined in classic has been pretty fun so far but I hadn’t grouped up with anyone really until around 60.  I honestly think they are just mean and the teasing is just over the top into that meaness category.

First, they did mail me 5 g when I was short that amount for my first mount.  I sent it back the next day however when I earned it.  So, that was nice.  They did help me with that quest in Arathi where I simply couldn’t solo the escort around the farm out there. However, there were a few instances that bug me and I’m probably going to gquit over it.

I got asked to do Uldaman at least twice to help their alts.  I was far above that level so I was doing a favor, however I was sassed when I was casting into the basilisks and getting my spells reflected into my face.  I was basically told ‘lol, you cast when they reflected, how didn’t you know that?’.  Well, the mob doesn’t show any indication of reflecting by a buff or graphic so I had no idea it was going to reflect when it didn’t do it the first few shots. This guy.   Now, I hadn’t done this dungeon in years and years and certainly didn’t remember the reflect and I was out there doing a favor so I thought it was rather rude to point out I was being an idiot, I guess. Not “don’t cast on these guys they reflect” just ‘lol, stupid’.

Some time later when I was 60 and switched to frost I was asked to help out on a quest.  I was in a nearby zone doing something but offered to help.  I looked up the quest while flying over and it was in a cave somewhere.  It’s literally in a zone with a giant canyon with multiple cave entrances, and I wasn’t able to hook up with them since they were already deep in the cave and their location didn’t do me any good.  I legit got told “so in so was further than you and got here quicker, lol”   Hey, I mean I stopped what I was doing to come out and you’re asking me to find you in a cave! I got demoted to a rank called something like ‘wears a helmet’ on top of that.

Anyway last night we formed up for BRD with me being the only 60 and Poof bear tanking at like 55 and not good gear.  I died at least twice because I couldn’t do anything without pulling aggro.  I tried to help at the start by sheeping the second mob but poof’s husband quickly broke it, then mocked me for having bad dps. I was doing 60% of the groups dps according to recount but ok?  I said I wasn’t the one who broke sheep and he told me to mark it next time.  I said I didn’t have time for that.  Then he said to call it out.  What? Why don’t you just fucking dps the tanks target instead of spraying your dots all over the place? But ok ok spell batching might make that hard.


Then mister poof asked for 45 water because they weren’t 55, so I made 40 and tried to trade while they were standing there but they kept cancelling.  The hell?

When the misses poof bear tank pulled a ton of mobs I got asked ‘why don’t you sheep one of these?’ which I also felt was rude.  What would be the point of sheeping a batch pull? it would just get broken.  Now you’re just being a smart ass and making fun of me for trying to crowd control for a bad bear tank.

Now during this whole thing, Poof sounded A LOT like Sylvansuede from Lineage 2.  I hadn’t described her here ever but it’s basically someone who brags non-stop.  We joined vent for this thing and it was oh, I was the admin of a hospital, I was a mental health specialist, I have a degree in astrophysics, I am an interior designer, did you know I have 4 different degrees, I’ve been to 200 countries, just on and on and on.  Plus her and her husband talking sex to each other constantly.

I got teased for dying a few times, more jokes about how I wasn’t doing sheep right, then we paused for like 15 mins to get some other person in.  It was late anyway but I left.  I totally get friendly teasing but when you get shit on every group, it’s not amusing.
