OK can't find the pic I want so:

Bex = aspirin. 1950's ad with the slogan "Have a cup of tea, a Bex and a good lie down". Showed a Far from Heaven lady of the house filling up with what was probably valium but was meant to be aspirin before heading for the bed for a good lie down after a hard day brushing the dog. You get the pic. "Have a Bex and a good lie down" has fallen into colloquial use here.

Here's some links:

Don't even think about joking around with me until you apologize to NYC.

You still can, you know. Nobody is all bad. Sometimes people do and say stupid stuff they don't mean. It's not a disgrace to say sorry when you've been mean.

But don't talk to/at/about me until you do.

It's OK Spart. Really.

Some people just don't like me, and that's fine. I was actually surprised it took this long.

I'd hate to see you get towed under in this undercurrent. It's not worth it.

I'm not usually one to get caught up in a message board fracas (usually I take the attitude of Alice in Wonderland -- "Why, you're nothing but pack of cards!" -- LOL), but that remark yesterday was just plain mean and uncalled for.

Usually, I don't consider it any of my busines when someone's being an asshole, being mean, or thinks, mistakenly or not, that being ugly and nasty is amusing. That's their stuff. It's eminently ignorable. LOL

But when someone is being mean to a friend, even "just" a virtual acquaintance, particularly one who's going through a rough time, I lose my temper. There's no excuse for that kind of crap. There's plenty in the big old world to make fun of, tear down or throw rocks at, virtual or otherwise, without being mean to someone who's up against it.

I got the impression that zero was responding to the "no chance of either understanding or sharing" comment posted by Audrey, FWIW.
