It's like this: they're both assholes, except one (OP) turned out to be an even bigger asshole than the other.

and that is fine,
it is the fact that the person that replied to me basically said it is ok to mock and laugh
at someone's dead wife and kids if that guy did some prank on you...

No, the guy was an asshole to begin with. If you can be mean to people you should at least be able to take the backlash.

so making a joke to someone on how they do not have a GF is the same as making fun
of someone's dead wife and kid?
are you ******* with me? and 30 people agree with you?

It wasn't really a joke, though. He wanted to humiliate anon and that's being an asshole on all scales. That's bullying and can really **** up someones live.
Anon's backlash was just really ******* cold, but I feel like the guy kinda deserves it. Still thumbed you up though, as I can understand your side, too

thanks for understanding,
making a joke about someone not having a gf is not that harsh, a little mean yes but not
really harmful but for you to mock someone's dead wife and child is ******* brutal and yet
people think it is the same, it is insanity.
i do not care if this post is fake, the point of it is shocking.

eeeeeehhh, makig a joke about someone not having a gf is a little mean among friends, but from the post I think that they're more like strangers and there I think it's closer to bullying than just being a joke. Especially in front of all your colleagues. It's humiliating and, as I said, can really **** someone up

i can not speak for anyone else so i try to imagine if i was in this situation, from both sides,
if someone got me a book at work about how to get a GF i would laugh and ye it would be a
bit embarrassing, but if someone got me a book about finding a wife and having kids when
mine died tragically that would be ******* brutal, i would be pissed and sad...

That's the most retarded **** I've ever heard. The guy was a dick, but not to the point where he was openly mocking the OP about dead relatives. It's not about being able to take backlash at all.

No, but you can expect people to be a dick in other ways. He fully deserved to be ripped on because of what he did, but mocking his ******* family isn't the way to do it.

No, actually you can completely expect that.
It's one thing to mock someone about something that they can change. inb4 "you can't change socially anxiety/etc". Yes you can, I've done it, it's called growing a pair
It's another to mock someone because of a tragedy.
If he in turn got buddy a book called "101 not to **** through your mouth, a guide to being polite" that would be fine.

You wouldn't get a quadriplegic a book on how to train for a marathon, because that's just going too far.

That's not backlash though.

Backlash would be getting a big purple vibrator with a note saying "so you can go **** yourself"

This isn't punching a guy that punched you, this is a guy calling you ugly and you smashing his face off the bar.

I hate how you guys are defending the douche nozzle. I wouldn't have done it myself, but only because I wouldn't have been sure if the first guy was going to get me the insult present in the first place. Good on anon for sticking up for himself.

Why wouldn't that be justified? Of course it's a dick move, but the other guy pulled something similar off as well.    
   
When i would have received a book on how to get a gf a few years ago, i would probably have thought about how useless and **** i am for a month or more, feeling completely crappy. Sure, the other guys think "Man it was just a joke, he won't take it too serious"   
   
But in the end, both presents can hurt on an long lasting emotional level. CAN doesn't mean that it has to. Maybe this guy doesn't give a **** about being a lone etc.    
It's the other guys own fault, he completely deserved it in my opinion.

It's like when this fat kid used to say something about my long hair, "pube head" or something like that. Told him that I can just cut off my hair, which would take minutes, whereas it would take him a good couple of years to get rid of his imperfection. Can't just cut off a large amount of body mass.

No, OP went too far.

I honestly would expect him to be fired over something like that.

It's one thing to make a joke about stuff you can change (weight, social anxiety, etc) inb4 "You can't always change those" ********, yes you can, it just takes dedication
It's another to mock someone's personal tragedies.

It would have been fine if OP went shot for shot, and got him something that made a joke about something he could manage, a weight loss book, a book on how to use basic office tools, hell a purple dildo with a note saying "So you can go **** yourself" would have been completely justified.

But this was too far, would you give a marathon training book to a quadriplegic? The Kama Sutra to a rape victim? These things go past getting even for a joke and will leave you in a worse situation than the one you started in.

If you're going to be a cunt, expect others to treat you the same way. Social anxiety isn't as easy to "Fix" as you say because why would he. He has no need and again, play the cunt, expect the same thing to happen to yourself.

1 - No, this goes far beyond being a cunt, the coworker was a dick, sure, but OP went far beyond that.

2 - If he isn't willing to better himself, then he can hardly be angry when people point out those flaws.
It's like if I don't wash my face, can I be angry at people who point out that I have bad acne?
If I don't exercise and eat right, can I get offended if people call me fat? If you people say yes you can get offended, then you are the biggest hypocrites ever because you continuously make fun of people for being fat

This goes far beyond the disproportionate revenge idea, and for that, OP is a dick.

Yes, the ideas that are flowing through my mind are delightful. I have a crippled friend in a wheelchair, he'd appreciate a good marathon book or two.
