Usually this term is used for a guy that got his feeling hurt by one of his buddies. This normally happens if a group of friends go out for a ride, but forget to invite one guy…thus the forgotten fella is…”butt hurt.”
This happens quite often with men and bikes especially if they are riding in odd numbers. So for example, if there is a group of 5 guys riding, 2 people normally pair up while climbing a long hill or coasting down the fire road talking about bikes, wife, kids, work, life and what ever. So that means 4 of the guys riding are talking to each other, but one guy…normally either in the front of the pack or the last guy of the group doesn’t have anyone to talk to, thus they get “butt hurt.”
Another fine example is this…a certain mountain biking website hosts a contest for free gear…let’s just use grips as an example. Reader A wins, we congratulate him, do a post talking about how he won. But Reader B(B for butt) sends out his bitterness in a form of a comment with words like…“All I have to say is… I hate you! You are all evil! Evil, evil people! I knew they were not clipless! UUhhhgg!”
Even though the handsome Editor tries to make peace with Bitter Butt Hurt Reader B, by saying…“Sorry dude…We sent Reader A an email notifying him of his win, but if he doesn’t get back to me, I’ll let you know.”
But its too late, Butt Hurt has set in…as Reader B says…“It’s cool dude… I’m just playin’ around.” Though he tries to sound like he wasn’t hurt, this image portray how he really feels….
There’s no real cure or preventative measure for Butt Hurt. However, if you’ve experience butt hurt before, you’re more likely to have more episodes of it…
