See, here's the thing:
I thought he was a pretty nice guy, too. In fact, most people did. There were a few who were immediately irritated by him, but I think overall, everyone thought he was alright.
After awhile, he got obnoxious.
Most of us ignored it, hoping it would go away.
Then, some of us said something, and some of us even felt bad, because he was a real nice guy.
Then, more of us started saying, "Alright, dude, what the hell?"
So goes the story. Ignoring didn't work, kindly asking didn't either. Now, everyone's like, "WHAAAAAAAAT THE FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK?!"
