Ways to mope

Postby Pau! » Tue Sep 11, 2007 3:16 pm UTC

I'm looking for advanced moping techniques to use over the next couple of days. I haven't had much reason to before, so I'm not particularly good at it, and could use some tips and hints.

Thanks!

Slouch a lot. Make your movements heavy and slow. Frowns are good too. I like to just kinda sit around, or pace, all while complaining about dumb things.

Moping is fun...and sad :(

Don't forget to mope properly, always look down ALL of the time, oh and don't respond to anyone the first 2-3 times they call your name...

You might want to start with beginner moping and work your way up.

Sigh a lot randomly for no reason. Loudly. Smiling/laughing/giggling/chuckling is strictly verboten. Be distant and think about why you're moping A LOT.


Then grow up, move on and be happy with life because I'm sure that loads of people have it a lot worse and they're not running around moping all over everyone's good time.

Sigh heavily and audibly. It's a cry for attention, and you can't mope without the intent of wanting attention.

ahh see i just worry when i get sad. I haven't been "depressed" since highschool.

I don't see the point to purposeful moping is all.

Thanks! I've always admired, and often got caught not being able to look away from, your avatar.


I find I mope very quietly to myself and just hate being bothered by other people for a day or two.

Try to find a place in which you can look both uncomfortable and awkward, and hang out there. My boyfriend in high school used to climb under a piano and mope. We laughed at him a lot, but we sure knew he was moping!

Try staring blankly when someone speaks to you. Then, after a few seconds, blink and ask in a monotone, "Uh, I'm sorry, what?"

Beer was mentioned, but is frankly too weak for good moping, unless you have a lot of it. I suggest rum. And lots of it.

lie in the middle of the floor, where people walk, and stare at the ceiling. if someone kicks you, just sort of roll on your side and stare at the floor instead. than go back to original position. don't say anything, and work on getting your eyes really sad.

if you want to be alone, do same on floor in bedroom. just as long as you aren't actually on any furniture.

Refuse to make eye contact, pout, and be extremely reluctant to speak. If forced to speak, mumble incoherently and finish every statement with an irritated shrug of the shoulders.

Are you moping over a girl? If so, BAM!

All you need. Well, that, plus some hard liquor. Jack Daniels preferred.

While in a conversation, go off to the side, a bit away from everyone, and apply the other techniques mentioned here. If it doesn't work the first time, rejoin the conversation and try again.

Both of these are qft. I usually find myself moping, if ever, usually for the sake of attention, perhaps to try and find someone who understands and can sympathize... and, usually failing that, try to force someone to, which is admittedly uncalled for.

(I have since ceased such behavior.)

As for the Malthusian thing, I do note my own outlook changing with my inlook, how things go on in my mind affect the way my mind processes what goes on in the world.

It's a perfectly natural and normal process of course, but that doesn't make it right. So usually I just cut the moping and try to get my work done regardless. Only 24 hours in a day, why not enjoy them all?
