TEXT: U mad bro
(There might be a question mark after that. Then again, there might not.)
TWITTER: U mad, bro? (insert GIF of choice here, if desired)
FACEBOOK: Oh, you’re mad at me? Tough.
LINKED-IN: Have I upset you? Surely everyone knew that already.
ACADEMIA: I ascertain from observation that you possess a degree of anger over this incident. Surely you realize that nothing new has been revealed about you or your dealings.
