Default Morning rant......

I got this dipsh!t punk kid (21 yrs old) that i had to fire a month or so Ago and somehow he figured out my gamertag on xbox live and is making these bogus profiles trying to clown on me Using my real name and making bullsh!t bios saying some fukt up #@#@#@#@ About me. Now at first it bothered me but i quickly blew it off and got the profile banned, well tonight he made another profile with the same info just a different name and it's starting to piss me off.

Normally by now i would've let the hood come out of me and went to his house to beat his ass but 1. I'm on probation 2. Not sure if he could do anything as far as reporting me to my job if i were to beat his ass since he's an ex employee and 3. I'm a grown ass man with a wife and kids and know better than to let this get to me. Its just really annoying and given the fact that i really can't do much it's making it even worse, lol. Sorry guys just needed to vent before i go off and do something stupid when i get off work this morning.

Well you could always go to the authorities and file harassment charges perhaps? I'm sorry that this little punk kid is doing this to you.

Well nice vent and good on you to get it out.

That sounds like a unique situation. But big on you to be adult about it.

Why don't you talk to the moderators and see if they can ban his i.p. address?

I don't think electronic harassment is unique. I think it is quite common. Call your local authorities and ask for their advice. I'm sure they have experience.

Welcome to the wonderful world of management where unfortunately at times we need to make tough personel decisions which is never fun.

I have had my BMW keyed severly, my wife emailed saying I have been cheating, my mother prank called saying how bad of a guy I am, probably had 100 private # calls to my cell and hang ups in a day which was just so pathetic.

The best piece of advice I can give would be to ignore it as they obviously really want to bother you and once they see it is bothering you they will continue to do so as it will be entertaining to them. Once they see they are wasting their time and it is not affecting you they will move on with their pathetic lives

If you have a wife and family, do not go to this persons house to fight them or what not as it may lead to you losing your job. It is not worth your time, just continue to focus on the important things in life such as your career avancement and your family and laugh at how pathetic this kid is with nothing better to do with his time such as I dunno searching for another job!

Since you are grown and have a family, you could always quit playing video games and do more activities with them. That would take care of your problem.

what an asinine thing to say. That would be like me saying "Stop spending money on your card collection so you can spend it on your family".

Well, why don't you? You think your kids like doing without, meanwhile your yelling "uber mojo" from your basement?

Some dad you are, heh.

Yeah this is one of the Dumbest things I have heard on these boards and that is saying a lot.

You are pretty much saying that any parent that play video games are neglecting their family.

I work 40+ hours a week to provide for my wife and kid. I have a house and 2 cars(on my wife drives.) They are by no means Exotic.

My wife and son know that I would bend over backwards and give my life to make sure they are taken care of.

There is no reason I shouldn't be able to play and hour or 2 of video games when I have some free time. Please don't judge other people with your mindless banter.

/Rant.

Well put. I am a "grown ass" man with a family but I still play games. To me its my me time. I don't play during the day or in the evenings when they are home but once they are down for the night I'll get on for a few hours maybe. Its fun and its a release. Guess you would rather me hang out at bars or something? Video gaming is a huge part of our generation and quite frankly my family also enjoys playing games together whether it be Wii or XBox or whatever system we have.

To the OP I would do like someone else suggested and contact your local sheriffs office. They might not care who knows but I would at least try. My worry wouldn't be just xbox I would be concerned he is using your info for other things.

Before every one of you get your panties in a bunch, it was one suggestion, but maybe not enough detail. All the OP wanted was a way to stop the harassment, right? Well, if it bothers him so much, seeing those profiles, etc. he could "take a break" from the video games and just spend it with his family until in blows over. Is that better for those of you that were so offended by my previous post?

Oh, and for the one that mentioned it was a judgement.....WHAT? Relax, I realize that video games can be every bit the hobby that card collecting can be. I dabble in them myself from time to time, so it wasn't a jab at all you gamers out there.

To the OP, my previous comment was not meant as an insult. I was not making my point clear, apparently. That's on me. I apologize if you took it the same way others did. I simply meant take some time away from it and it could disappear on its own. Unless he is relentless, I would think he would eventually tire of trying to annoy you. Wouldn't he be able to tell if you were online anyway?

It definitely came across wrong, apology very much accepted. Also I apologize for taking it the "wrong" way. And OP is pretty much like most of us we are only online when we have the free time. Trust me my 6 year old is not going to let daddy be playing a video game without her.

Thank you. It did come across wrong. That should teach me to not type a message that requires more detail when I'm in a hurry and don't have the time to type it all. That's on me. I know most gamers are not as I made it sound previously. One made a good point, video games are a part of our generation, so it's very common place to have them be a part of every day life.

How about the whole truth ? Or you may have fired Kreskin and that means you are truly proper #@#@#@#@ed.
Either way, IU have to agree, the HOOD remark is childish and shows you may have called him a 21 yr old punk,but you being over 24 would surprise me.

Appreciate your apology for the way you worded the statement.
To me it came across as you thought any parent who plays Video games must be neglecting their families. I wasn't defending the fact that games are a hobby.
More defending the fact that parents who play video games,are not always neglecting their families.

I also realize that there may be some that do.

Either way no hard feeling.

One day if in when you have kids. You will truly understand that sometimes a half an hour or so of video game time is a good outlet for stress and frustrations.


Oh crap I never addressed the OP. If I were you I would try to contact Microsoft. Maybe copy some screens as proof. I know there is away to file complaints through said persons Profile. I have a friend who received a lifetime ban from Xbox live. He found away around it,but it was a pain in the arse for him,because he can no longer register an account under his name...Lol never asked him what he did and not sure I want to know.

I have numerous issues with your post. You threaten to go to someone's house so you can beat their ass. Real mature by the way, and great way to get yourself killed or put in the hospital. Seeing as how numerous states allow residents of a house to shoot and kill intruders without any consequences. Then say you're on probation. Then proclaim to be a grown ass man with a wife and kids. So let's be clear. You're a "grown ass man" with a wife and kids you should be supporting and taking care of but you'd rather come here to b***h about someone you fired who's harassing you on X-BOX LIVE? Then go on to insinuate you'd go to HIS house and try to beat him up? GTFO out here and go take care of your family. Be that "grown ass man" you claim to be and walk the **** away from the situation.

asinine comment number 2.

i sincerely hope you live a perfect life, otherwise this whole thing is just hypocrisy. I applaud the OP for just coming here and posting to vent rather than actually doing something destructive to his life (either actually going and kicking some ass or breaking some things at home).

sometimes people just need to vent. get off your soapbox.

I am far more concerned about being on probation as a 'grown ass man' than playing video games.
