the worst person in the world lives in buckhead

WhiteTshirtJFPxs.jpg

i have been meaning to write about this for a day and a half but the job that pays the bills has been getting in the way. anyway, frequent commenter abby dropped a line in suggest-a-story and it prompted me to finally post about it.

in case you don’t know this already, popular media site gawker.com has named buckhead resident john fitzgerald page the worst person in the world after an email he wrote to a potential suitor on match.com where he implied she might be fat since she didn’t want to continue getting to know someone as awesome as he is.

the story is made even more hillarious by the sheer over-the-top egomania of page’s homepage, johnfitzgeraldpage.com, where you can also read his online response to this whole mess.

making things even more interesting is page is now selling t-shirts and refusing to speak to the ajc without getting paid and also declining interviews with creative loafing, although no word on whether compensation was the rub there.

i have to say that i am really beginning to wonder if the whole thing is just a set-up. it’s almost too rich. does anyone out there actually KNOW this guy?

    hmmm — seems like it’s working to me — look at all the free publicity he’s getting.

    Not particularly shocking that he lives in Buckhead.

    He has his personal address up there on his t-shirt order page, has he not heard of cafepress.com? He’s pretty pathetic. And he only lives on the 15th floor of his “31-story” highrise

    I just looked at the gawker site for the first, and last, time – it gets my vote for “worst website in the world.” (& no, I don’t know that Page guy – gawker just strikes me as immature, rude, and a waste of time.)

    I believe that’s a 1 br/1 ba unit in the Concorde (built in 1987), worth around $100k.

    PBJ: Wow. I don’t even know what to say. “Immature, rude, and a waste of time” covers almost everything on the internet…except the porn, some of which contains adults.

    Douchey is as douchey does though.

    On the contrary, there are plenty of great sites on the net….usually including this one.

    …if this wasn’t Atlanta, and wasn’t Buckhead, I’d say it was viral. But it is, and it is, so I’ll say it isn’t. I’m just glad this one isn’t running his own band of mercenaries.

    Ive said it before and ill say it again, im not surprised this guy is a Sigma Nu.

    I cant get a picture of his beemer convertible but I know a bmw-SUV named “Bruce” you might enjoy: http://flickr.com/photos/jehervey/142377800/in/set-72057594128444111/

    Okay…I’m a little late. Yep, the guy is for real and he rents his little condo in Buckhead. Never owned a home in his life except the one his mama left him when she died. You DO know he’s an orphan, right? The guy is a full-blown sociopath. The only one I’ve ever met in my entire life. It is so rich to see him get outed at 40. He loves young girls, but I think it’s because they’re the only ones taken in by his BS. His real life story and the people he’s used and abused would fill the Atlanta yellow pages. I say goodbye and good riddance. Can we get this flea out of town?
