I Shame The Name “Gunderson”

Yesterday, out of the blue, I received this comment to the post about my recent troubles with Commerce Bank:

I googled my last name “Gunderson” and you came up :(
By you blog you sound super lame.
It is to bad we have the same last name.
I wish I was a cooler Gunderson...

Needless to say (but I’m going to say it anyway), I was devastated. I mean, I take pride in being a relative to the former son of Gunter – and that’s a hard act to follow! I know that I’m not quite as well known as some other Gundersons...

...but c’mon. I’m popping up on page two if you search for “gunderson” on Google, so that’s gotta be something.

Oh well, you win some and you lose some. I emailed the commenter back, but I received no response. A shame, I wanted to know why I sounded super lame... but I think I already know that answer. Here’s my new open letter to the commenter:

I googled “super lame” and my web site didn’t come up :)
By your email grammar, you sound super dumb.
It IS too bad we have the same last name, I wish you spelled better.

File this one under “I’m a butthole.”

Perhaps he only read the post about getting oil off the driveway? That may seem lame to an outsider.

smanley, I was thinking the same thing. Though a great thing to know, if I stumbled across the kitty litter on the driveway to get oil up post, I would think the blog a bit strange.

Looking at the path said commenter took, it appears they only read the Commerce Bank post.

I googled "super lame" and "asshole commentor" came up. OR "the jerk store called and they're running out of YOU"
