Why, oh why, do I do pugs? Oh right, because I need the badgers.
Last night I’m on my priest in Heroic Violet Hold (good, quick!) and we get as our first boss…
That stupid guy with the balls. The exploding balls. Even the balls jokes can’t make up for how much he sucks. No dirty joke intended because I hate him so much.
Well, the tank fails to kite for whatever reason, and I’m too busy pulling every healing cooldown I have out of my spellbook to keep us alive – not like I had the spare time to tell him to “KITE KITE LIKE YOU MEAN IT.” Eh, we died anyway.
As we’re running back the conversation goes like this:
Tank: Sorry, my bad, I forgot that I was supposed to kite this one.
Mage: Cmon Healz
Me: Wait, are you blaming ME for this?
Tank: Dude, it was my fault.
(silence from Mage)
Now, maybe I was irrationally irate due to being engaged in a potty-related war of the wills all night with a stubborn toddler who got the stubborn gene from her momma, but I wasn’t about to take that crap from Mr. Mage.
So I initiated a vote kick… and it PASSED. At least 2 (?) other people agreed with me that Mr. Mage was regrettably destined for the bee pit.
The next try went without incident, with me complimenting the tank on his kiting, and him complimenting me on my healing. How civilized.
The next time someone is a jackass, it doesn’t hurt to try to vote kick. The rest of the members might be as fed up with that shit as you are.
