What's your flouncing style?

There are as many ways to flounce as there are people who get butthurt over nothing.  What's your flouncing style?

Fancy?

Aggressive?

Glamorous?

Pithy?

Or are you more of a jetsetter kind of flouncer?

Do you helpfully offer to help others flounce with you?

Here's to flouncers everywhere who don't always get the credit they deserve by making the forum a better place...by leaving.

Some tried to effect a scorched earth policy convinced that their lack of participation would ensure our ruin...fantasies of leaving us like this running through their head as they type their final missive...

But it always ends up being a little different than what they imagine...

And I have no segue for this but I can't leave it out because it's making me laugh...dogs and hamburgers!  So funny!

@HerNameIsBuffy...this might be my favorite post of all time!

I think I'd be the stealth flouncer. I loved in the other thread where you said you can't take your ball and go home and pretend you never played on the playground....but man I'd sure try! By stealth-noping right out of somewhere :D

I'm a teeny bit disappointed. I was expecting one of those quizzes with lots of statement sand 3-5 answers and you pick the one that suits you best. At the end you tally up everything and know what you are. But alas. I just get memes :(  (this has to be the first time I'm saddened by memes!)

One board I used to frequent (it died due to the owner changing the format of his site) called it huffing.  We liked to rate the huffs.

 

I give that a 6.  Didn't have a good beat.  Couldn't dance to it.

Today - I stealth.  I will admit to an aggressive/war waged (with others) on another site flounce.  But I see the error or my ways now.

You're right - now I'm disappointed.  And determined to find a good topic for a quiz because quiz you I shall!

Funny!  A forum I'm familiar with called it "leaving in a huff."  We had multiple pictures of huffs.

Lol, great post, @HerNameIsBuffy

I think I'd probably be a stealth flouncer, but inside I'd be wishing I had the guts to be pithy.  I'm not good at confrontation.  Hopefully I won't ever be in the situation where I have to decide which flounce-type I actually am!

Stealth.  But that's not quite right - I dwindle and fade hoping that someone will miss me.  Of course they should!

So far no-one on other forums has ever has noticed a deliberate and passive aggressive dwindle and fade on my part.  

I'm so butt hurt.

I mean - I have been forced to the conclusion that I am actually - replaceable! :playful2:

I love this! There have been so many great flounces to watch here over the years, too - you've done a superb job categorizing them. 

I know I'd be a seriously stealthy flouncer given that in four years of membership and even more of lurking, I still haven't even managed to hit sixty posts. It would be so stealthy, it would practically be an anti-flounce.

A non-profit I worked at 30 years ago had a REALLY intense work culture, ie  14-16 hour days, 6 days/week, visionary accomplishment commitments that, once made, were etched in stone, etc.  It was not a religious organization but you had to have a religious-level fervor to last any length of time there.  Many people didn't stay long, just because there wasn't room for a real life outside the office.  I myself lasted about six months at one office and then 5 years later, I made it 14 months at another location/position.  Every once in a while someone would simply disappear, unable to continue but too guilty/overwhelmed/whatever to simply say "my time here is done and I want to move on" -- we called it "bolting".  The phenomenon fascinated me.  I shoulda been a psychologist...

The Scarlett one worked really well in the midst of a recent epic flouncer...Inappropriate as it is, I often think we should name some of our rules after the posters who inspire them :) .

Best post of all time. I wish I could super mega like this. I especially like the use of cats. I like the fancy one, because I'd like to picture myself as a cat wearing a feather boa. I'd probably be some combination of aggressive, pithy, and youthful (post aggressive and pithy things, then see how people react but not respond).

Why is "bye felicia" a flounce? I was under the impression that that's what you SAY to the flouncers.

But I do love the cats. I'm most definitely a Pithy flouncer.

I'm going to have to go with aggressive. Sans gun, though. I would probably instead flip the bird.

Well, that's how I would *like* to envision myself as a flouncer.

In my last real-life flounce (haven't really had too many of those, nor on forums...fora?), I basically exited with what dignity I could muster, with my head held high, and saved my tears for when I got into my car. Dealing with some legit narcissists and possibly (it seems to me) legit sociopaths will do that to you.

No let's not do that. I am someone who would get motivated to put that on my fj bucket list (without flouncing I might add). :shifty-kitty: don't encourage me to be a lil piece o shit!

I do think instead of flouncing I would probably just start writing all my responses in haiku form or something weird like that, or put them through a certain translator so the sounded like she that shall not be summoned.

@EyeQueue--Thanks for the link about "Bye Felicia". I know more than I did before I read it and I found my favorite version of a Bye Felicia meme:

@EyeQueue--There were 6-8 different Bye Felicia memes at the bottom of that page. I liked this one, too:

I always enjoy a YAGE.  A good YAGE is a joy to behold and can go on for pages.

I have no idea how you find time to work, @HerNameIsBuffy, but I am so happy you find time to compile awesome posts.  And that conclusion -- a dog in hamburgers!  Pure joy!

Usually just getting distracted and wandering off. It has the advantage that if you fail to stick the flounce nobody notices. I once didn't log in to FJ for a month because I was too busy binge-watching the entire backlog of Good Eats...

I would want to be an aggressively fancy flouncer, because nothing says buhbye like firing off a machine gun while swishing a feather boa around. Lethal drama.!

      I’m glad the Pest decided to go to trial, but I don’t understand it at all. The media will absolutely cover all the details about the horrible kind of images he had (age of the children involved) and I struggle to see any defensive strategy they have left. So I see more publicity, more costs, more jail time. What are they hoping to win?

      I think they are hoping for a miracle. That a jury full of white Christians will be chosen, who only vaguely know the Duggars as "that big wholesome Christian family that used to be on TV", and will be willing to buy into their "devil made him do it/he's being persecuted for being Christian/he has repented" schtick or will buy that a good Christian father like him couldn't possibly have done this, so it MUST have been some random other person who downloaded this stuff.

      I thought that was telling as well.  Although Gwen seemed to be head over heals with Joe, it appears she also loved her money and control more.  I have to wonder if anyone realized Joe was a player.  He seemed to have a better grasp of the bible and how to apply it than Gwen did.  Maybe he was rehearsing the role to be an eventual Prophet of a church.  

      After a long time of sharing with those who would know, I'm glad the documentary found a former associate of Joe to make clear that his role as middle aged and self made guru dispensing spiritual bon bons was just that .. a role.

      Those acting classes were being repurposed through Gwen's coaching and Joe's growing ego contributed as well. He didn't know any more about the Bible and its application than what his Hallmark card dialogue made him seem to grasp.  And for Gwen, lost in her gushing middle age honeymoon crazy, that was fine. All knew who wore the pants in that department.

      I honestly don't think they knew how they were going to proceed with his next characterization. They were too busy enjoying Life and letting Zion burn before the fateful crash. One thing Grider DID say that I DID agree with is that she did find another lead for her soap opera there.

      Joe truly was that, but the Remnant effort to anoint him as a new David Koresh firebrand (another scruffy musician whose zeal was nourished by his association with the Branch Davidian matriarch before his ascendancy) would likely only have lead to him becoming just an Edward Francis instead. Francis was the one time paramour of cult leader Elizabeth Clare Prophet whose 15 year marriage ended after a "growing apart" ..  Joe just didn't have the depth to sustain that kind of role, but it sure was Fun while he played the Man.

      I dislike the word wholesome too - but it’s a word Duggar supporters often used to describe them eg ‘ refreshing to have a wholesome family on TV’ etc.

      JB & M are extremists, using a brand of religion to justify their extremism. JB is also a greedy control freak. He saw an opportunity to make money and control his family. His behaviour has left them educationally stunted so they either have to rely on him or marry their way out. Why he is given a platform to speak about parenting I’ll never know.

      I never found a good translation for the word wholesome. I understand the way the word is used, but I never managed to fully grasp the meaning.

      I was watching a true crime show (because I watch way too much) and there was a story where a wife lost well over 100lbs through her workout class. She gained so much confidence and was happier with herself. Her husband ended up killing her. He wanted an overweight, depressed wife with no confidence. 

      Yep, that was a Dateline episode.
