“Getting banned is one of those life phases; like puberty or world domination”

~ Oscar Wilde on getting banned

Are you perennially accepted with open arms wherever you go? Do you always find a place by the fire and a nice pair of comfy slippers waiting for you?

Tiresome, isn't it?

I bet you'd just love to take those slippers and hurl them into the fire - so that someone, anyone, would cast you into exile for once, just to show that they don't care. I mean, all the really cool people get banned all the time, so why not you? Is there something wrong with you maybe? Were you, perchance, stamped with accepted at birth?

Lou Reed walked on the wild side and he got banned all the time - especially from the NYC Woman's Institute and Bridge Club. The wild side sure sounds exciting doesn't it? And it's a long long way from the dull side that you currently inhabit. So, here it is - your final article before you get off this bus.

Welcome to this informative yet non-comprehensive instructional guide to getting the door slammed on your ass as you are unceremoniously thrown to the street like the gutter-feeding, petty-whining, ass-vomiting tripe bucket that everyone else knows you are, but sadly, you do not.

Are you ready? Then we'll begin.

You will know it is time to turn the page when Tinkerbell rings her little bell, like this:
