Get Bent Not What I Meant!

Ever say something that got taken the wrong way? That can sure happen any old day. Or hearing something the wrong way or reading more into it at play. So many ways to get bent with a not what I meant.

Get bent.
Pitch a tent.
What I meant,
You toothless gent.

Actually said worse.
More like a curse.
No reading more into it.
On the surface every bit.

Can you read more into saying?
That may get a replaying.
Reading more into words from a yap.
Do you write it down after such a lap?

You ran a lap?
Damn there, chap.
Why do that?
Not what was meant from the cat.

Meant and meaning,
Needs a screening.
Maybe subtitles for the common sense impaired.
That means few would be spared.

You said what?
How could you say such smut?
My mind was in the gutter?
Don't talk to me about such clutter.

What a twist.
Could it be missed?
Beats little old me.
Confused are thee.

You can't mean that.
Another added stat.
For I meant what was said.
The toothless gent should go drown at club med.

Just for a little while.
Murder isn't our style.
So was that meant?
Damn, so confusing as meant gets sent.

That's not what I meant.
But away you just went.
Ass up over nothing at all.
Maybe give your shrink a call.

Some sure find things that aren't there. Do you go a looking at your lair? Do you try to clarify before running away? Some things can be taken many a way that people say. Cry babies are the first to show. They think an offending you did go. When really the only one offending anyone are their own idiot minds. Unless one said pound sand up certain behinds. Then that can be taken as meant. Do words get you bent? Maybe one should think with each pass. Or at least clarify some things that come from all including my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  11. I don't say things that can be misconstrued very often, but sometimes the listener himself/herself gets confused due to his own limitations... especially if I use a word that he doesn't understand. (I once told someone that I didn't mean to "disparage" something, and I got a blank stare in response.)

    I once told a woman that she reminded me of Jean Stapleton, the actress that played Edith Bunker on TV's All in the Family. I made a point of differentiating between Jean Stapleton, the actress, and the character of Edith, but the woman nevertheless thought I was comparing her to Edith, and became really offended. Her reply was "Well, you look like Meathead!" (Rob Reiner's character on the show, a/k/a Mike Stivic, of course.)

  14. I hate it when people take something the wrong way. Happens often, and once someone understands something one way it is VERY hard for them to change their opinon!

  17. Some sure find things that aren't there
    Walking on eggshells because they care
    The Oscars are a case in point

    People might be offended and hear what's not said
    Who knows, careers might end up um dead.

  18. My mom said to my sister in law, who just asked about an old acquaintance, "He got big. He's big, bigger than you!" What she meant to say was that a kid shouldn't be bigger than an adult, but it came out like my mom called my sister in law fat (she's hefty though). Both were mortified lol
