For some reason I was just thinking about this guy in Berkeley who was pissed off at me for many many years. I barely knew the guy. So it was weird. I couldn’t figure out why he was pissed at me. But I could tell he was because he was always making these putdown comments about me and expressing disapproval of me.
So one day I just asked him what his problem was. And he said it was because of this comic strip I had done 20 years ago which he felt was making fun of him.
The weird thing was, he had completely misinterpreted the point I had been trying to make with that comic strip. And when I explained to him what I really meant (it had nothing to do with him) he was no longer mad at me. And we became friends
But the weird thing was. He had been pissed off at me for 20 years for the wrong reason.
I don’t mind people being pissed off at me. But at least get it right
