I've been reading a really great blog lately, Waiter Rant .
I've made a few comments to the author at times, and I signed them the way I sign everything else, "Cat".
Imagine my surprise when I looked at the blog today, and found this note from another reader in the comments:
Someone has been posting comments with the name "Cat"
on them (like the one above dated "05.15.05 - 9:13 pm").
They are NOT being written by ME, so PLEASE IGNORE
them. From now on, anytime you see the name "Cat" at
the end of a comment, you all will know for a solid fact that
I DID NOT write it, as this will be the LAST time I leave a
comment on Waiter's fantastic blog. Not to say I'll stop
reading it, mind you, but I will never leave another
comment on any post, EVER.
By the way, imposter, I believe you meant to spell
"hottIE", not "hottY", as you have so ignorantly done... and
the REAL me would NEVER use more than one exclamation point.
...and with that, I bid you all a fond adieu, and ask you
once again to PLEASE IGNORE ALL FUTURE COMMENTS
with the name "Cat" on them, regardless of what they say.

At first I just laughed, and figured she must have had a bad day at work or something, but then I felt compelled to respond. I surely didn't want anyone to think that I was IMPERSONATING her every time I left a comment, so I thought I should explain that I would take a different name, and she could be the original "Cat" (by the way, I did not write "hottie" or "hotty". She was reading somebody else's comment incorrectly)
To the "real" Cat...Sorry that my mom named me Cathi
and has been calling me Cat all my life. I'm not really sure
what you're all bent out of shape about, you sound like the
lady lawyer now. I apologize, I didn't realize you had
exclusive rights to the name.
I'll just sign my comments 'Cat the imposter' from here on.
That way you can comment all you like, and nobody will
confuse me with you. I hope your day gets better.
(and by the way, if you had read the comment that you
mentioned correctly, you'd have seen that I did not write

I feel kind of bad for stooping down to her level, but I read Waiter Rant regularly, and like to comment on it occasionally.
I thought her rant was pretty funny though. :)))) I wonder where all that anger came from? And I do like to use more than one exclamation point sometimes, so she MUST be the "real one" !!!! (I used 4 that time!!)
Cat (the IMPOSTER) haha
