There is a guy who attends most of the Karaoke events I go to. He is one of the worst singers..EVER!! He is so off key that you want to scream when he sings.
Everyone knows it but are afraid to tell him what they really think because they don't want to hurt his feelings. So week after week, month after month we have to endure his blood curdling attempts at singing.
Well, lately, he has been criticizing other singers, who are ten times better than him. Make that a hundred times!
A few times he came over to me and suggested a method of making a song I sing sound better. I said "Oh, OK Bobbie I will remember that" and I let it go.
A week ago he did a song which I have been singing lately by the Cornelius Brothers. Afterwards, he came over and asked me if I had a certain CD. I told him I might and to call me the next day.
He then commented that he did that song correctly like the original. He said that I sing it too smooth and that he did it "rough" the way it is supposed to sound.
Well, he pressed my button!! I told him that I at least sing it on key. He said that it was his first time. I said that no matter how many times he sings it that he will never get it right! And that when I sing it people will applaud and when he sings it that people will laugh.
So he said he was just warning me how to sing it correctly.
Since it didn't sink in, I told him he was one of the worst singers EVER!!
I definitely over reacted, but I couldn't take any more of his self delusion. He honestly believes he is a great singer and that everyone else has a problem.
So now he is angry with me. Lst night I heard him make snide comments about me. And as usual, he sang a few songs and he still stinks.
I was going to apologize to him but I don't know what to apologize for. And now it's escalating.
