2009 Drama Queen Day
A Holiday Dedicated to Mocking Drama Queens & Supporting Those Who Have To Deal With Them - February 6, 2009
Happy Drama Queen Day! Come celebrate this ever-growing holiday by lighting a candle and
*making a strong stand* against troubled drama queens. This is your holiday to mock and make fun of them. This holiday also
honors and recognizes those of us who tolerate them regularly.
Over the years, so many friends, neighbors
and acquaintances have shared their stories and experiences with drama queens.
I know a lot of men who foolishly married or dated unstable drama queens. Others face the painful reality of having a co-worker or boss
who is a total drama queen. Still others have sons or daughters who act like drama queens. Good heavens, there are
so many drama queens! Well, that is why this holiday exists. Drama Queen Day...
Light a candle and be united with all of us in saying "NO" to their impulsiveness, annoying behavior and drama!
The Origin of Drama Queen Day
I created this annual holiday because I needed an outlet to declare to the world that I am
very much against drama queens and the crap they have pulled on my forums! For years, I have owned and managed
discussion forums on this web site. Most of the time
positive and interesting discussions happen, but
occasionally a "drama queen" incident would arise. The
most common characteristics of these people on forums are: Those with mental illnesses (such as
borderline personality disorder), lonely and emotionally troubled middle-aged women
and those with poor Internet communication skills and etiquette.
I could write many stories about the pettiness,
trouble and dissention I've seen drama queens create on my forums. Common drama queen behaviors include (but are not limited to): 1)
An indignant person losing their emotional balance because I deleted their
inappropriate post. Oooh ... they just can't get themselves out of their tizzy!; 2)
A person "stomping off in a huff" over something stupid and announcing to the forum community
they are leaving - to create drama and attention for themselves; and 3)
A disgruntled forum visitor sending a mass e-mail to others "telling all about the forum administrator" that maligns my character.
Sometimes a new forum is created that encourages regulars to visit there instead. Oh please!
As forum administrator, I want to renew my 100% commitment to upholding
fun and enjoyable forums. I know the vast majority of my visitors
conduct themselves without a problem on the forums, but the reality is there will always be a fringe 1-2% of the
population that will be a problem.
As long as there is breath in my body, I will give it my all in doing
whatever it takes to keep emotional troubled drama queens off my forums.
I will never be perfect in how I manage, confront and eventually ban drama queens, but it is not in my genes to
back down. I have no problems being the "bad guy" when necessary.
To The Drama Queens...
If you are a drama queen and you are reading this, everyone who participated in this holiday has a message for you:
We will mock you.
It is so much fun to make fun of you.
We do respect and care about you as a person... but that does not mean we will tolerate your behavior. Ever!
Take a deep breath. Walk away from your computer. Get back on your meds. Go to bed at a normal hour.
Develop friendships in your real life. Make better life decisions. Only YOU can stop your drama!
Friends, have a wonderful Drama Queen Day. Below is a photo gallery of those who participated in anti-drama queen vigils
throughout the world! If you get a chance, light a candle. You are not alone in what you're going
through with the stinkin' drama queens in your life!
