The Post From The Other Day😬😱
Well that one caused a shitstorm ! I didn't intend for it to go like that at all.I just wrote an update on what's going on here at the farm and a couple of paragraphs of how I decided to wash my hands of a two faced rat fink who's in cahoots with probably the biggest thorn in my ass since I got a computer in 2016. I didn't even mention names but they sure knew who they were !
I came in from working on my last few nest boxes out in the garage to grab a bite to eat and check my e mails. The rat fink had a long e mail telling me off. He's around my age and a good ol' boy from the south but thinks he's a man of wisdom,integrity,morals,and all of those kinds of good values and traits.
In the post from the other day I accused him of a couple of minor things that by today's chewing each other out,I don't even know what to believe. See,these guys have played with me like that for a few years now. The rat fink is like a "go between" between me and the nutjob. He chimed in on the conversation too,mouthing off in his usual cocky way. They were both taking turns,the rat telling me how to behave and conduct myself in society,and the nut just lying and wising off. Of course I gave it right back and then some. I have a temper for sure. I always had one but later in life I've gotten more fed up with this kind of trash.
So the rat fink informed me that I'm known now as the "madman of the business",and the guy to stay away from. He says that a shitpot of people don't want to buy birds from me because they think I'll give them a hard time,cause trouble,and drama.... . He claimed that even today that he sold some quail to a guy who claimed that he's leaving Facebook because of me !😂 He said that the guy told him that I make him sick ! I don't know how much truth there is to that one because you can't believe half of what these two clowns say. Hell,one of them has a fraudulent Facebook page with a thousand followers,all conned into believing he's an old time rare quail breeder for many years,who's raised hundreds and hundreds of Mountain and Mearns Quail. Like I told him today - he's a bottom feeder,preying on all of the people on the newbie and dummy sites who've never seen these varieties before. He comes on with a big line of bullshit about the birds with posts at least every other day,basically the same videos of his garage setup,with his few Mearns pairs in small cubicles,and the flock of a dozen overcrowded Mountains in a pigeon setup. If you know nothing about quail he'll sound like the book of knowledge.
I will say right now that a lot of people are NUMB ! How can someone look at that Mickey Mouse setup,then take a look at my actual farm that's actually OUTDOORS,with neat rows of good sized pens,videos and pictures of my homemade energy efficient brooders,my grow out pens,breeding pens,variety and numbers of birds being raised....,and can't see any difference ? !!! It's day and night ! I know one hell of a lot of people that do but there are so many that I don't know how their minds work.
So the rat fink went on and on telling me that I need professional help and should see a shrink and get medication ! This was because I told the bastards that they sure wouldn't dare to talk to me like they do in person. They're all keyboard tough guys from hundreds of miles away. And people - YES ! - I'm a regular guy who would love to kick their asses and have told them so. The nut just kept laughing and making wise cracks,and Mr. Wisdom told me that I'm all talk and act like a 13 year old kid going through puberty ! He said that people like me are pansies and one good clean punch from him would knock me out cold !!
I'll explain about myself to all the folks who read this post. I'm not all quail. It's my second business. My main one is a lobster fisherman.You can not be a soft wimp to do that ! My only sport is boxing. I love it. I live and breathe it. Yes I'm an avid fight fan and follower of the sport but I used to train and spar when I was a kid and hold my own with good amateurs and some pros up in the city of Lewiston. I learned the game there and from years of studying the sport and the techniques of some of the great fighters over the last seven decades. I do ballbusting work all summer and fall and during the off season I'm back in my gym,training like a fiend with rounds and rounds on the heavybag,speedbag,jump rope,slant board for sit ups. I love not just to keep in shape but I like to be in better physical condition than a 25 year old athlete in his prime. I never had a smoke,a drop of alcohol,or any kind of drug in my life. My body is my temple. I take pride bigtime. I've got as much stamina as I did when I was young. I haven't even lost my hand speed. Bragging,yes,I guess so. I don't want to come off as a guy who's in love with himself but that's quite an accomplishment I've gotta say. So to have a couple of middle aged (my age actually) soft,out of shape,white collar boys mouth off like that and say that they can beat me up is nuts ! I guarantee that neither of them could pick up a jumprope and make more than three skips without tripping up. If they tried a few more times,they'd be so out of breath,and their shoulders and calves would be burning so bad that they wouldn't even be able to crawl out of bed the next day. The same thing with a heavybag. No clue how to punch or put together any combinations. No footwork or head movement. No stamina. Way too ill coordinated to hit a speedbag,and their arms and shoulders are too out of shape to even try. If these guys tried 10 situps,I'll bet it would be a struggle. I do 200 on a slant board,which makes them twice as hard. I have abs of steel. I'm back up to 15 rounds jumping rope and not even breathing hard. Ten rounds on the heavybag,then four on the speedbag right after. I train four nights a week. For those of you who don't know what a round is in boxing,it's three minutes,with a minute rest in between rounds. The point is guys - no you can't take me,not even remotely close,so don't make yourselves sound foolish.
Now on to address the issue of me being a madman and a guy who causes drama..... . Not at all. I get along with everyone until they cross me. I don't like cheapskates. I don't like shysters. I don't like a wiseass. I hate a liar. I do not like two faced people who play both sides against two people . I very rarely got into it with anybody until I got a computer and Facebook in 2016. I wrote about this recently but I'll say it again to remind some people with short memories.
Age of the internet brought out an entire different caliber of people. ebay hustlers,Facebook dummy sites and the bottom feeders that take advantage of the folks on them. Bird brokers who some don't even own a bird but will buy up stuff here and there for little or nothing,then sell it for over 100% profit. Then your just plain ignorant trash people that are all over the dummy sites and the Good Egg / Bad Egg sites. I have dealt with the bottom of the barrel there. These people are beyond nothing. Shit on a sneaker. Trouble making trolls looking to pick fights on there because they have nothing better to do. Yes I've got into it with the shitbags too. I've got quite a few stories there.
I've made probably a dozen enemies since 2016. I've written about some of them here and on my Facebook page in the past. One thing that I can not understand for the life of me is how some people are supposedly so scared of me. If they actually READ and COMPREHEND my posts about these assholes then they ought to understand why I talk about them the way that I do. If you can't understand what I'm writing,then you should go back to grammar school and enroll in a special ed class. What I do is tell who they are,and tell all about the shit that they pulled on me and other people. What the hell is so hard to understand about that ? !! Are the offended people little super sensitive soft little snowflake wimps ? ! Are they little churchies who've never heard a swear word ? !! Holy shit people,grow some balls and toughen up !!
Plenty of folks like what I do. They say they like my candidness. Those are regular folks,not wimps. I've saved people a lot of money and grief by steering them away from the crooks. Some already got stung by them and said they wish they found out about me first. Some I warned and they didn't listen. Most came back and told me about the screwing they got. I've said,"I told ya so" a lot !
So people - if this bullshit is all true,don't listen to those goddamn liars. I have a great reputation and there are a few that are lying to anyone who'll listen to try to ruin it. I've been at this a lot longer than these guys. I've shipped birds all over the country for in the ballpark of twenty years. I still get business from people from the old Game Bird Gazette days and through recommendations from customers. I sell out every year whether I raise 100 or 1000. I sell for the lowest prices in the country,unlike these overnight experts who are almost twice my cost. They're just greedy crooks.
People sure as hell don't have to worry or be afraid to buy from me. If you're not a pushy prick with a lousy personality,a cheapskate,or an idiot,then we'll never have any trouble.😀
I'm Scott O'Brien, proprietor of Mainely Quail. I've been raising quail for 20+ years and have lots of stories. I tell it like it is, and don't hold back.
