I haven't seen a second one pop up, and I really want this thread to continue!
Unfortunately, I don't have any stories to share at the moment, but I'd love to hear everyone else's PuG horror stories.
Story I heard somewhere
"Dont heal so early let him get agro"
"u heal u agro watch ur omen"
"or u dont have it baddy?"
followed shortly by:
"im pulling them here come"
"Can I heal yet?"
"Call out for heals"

85 Tauren Priest
Last boss in regular deadmines while I was leveling. Group is awesome, everything is going smooth until the tank sits at last boss.
Tank: "sorry guys I have to"
Me: "it's the last boss! This will take 2 mins!"
Tank: "yea I know, but my mom is being a real @@%!@ right now"
On my just-turned-85 Resto Shaman, healing normal Grim Batol, on the pulls near Throngus with the one big gronn-type monster and the 4 or 5 casters. Tank pulls, I start healing. I notice that my health is plummeting, and I have a rapidly growing stack of the debuff they spam on you, which I cannot dispel fast enough. The tank and everybody is focus firing on the big guy, nobody except me has aggro on the casters. I die, group wipes without a healer.
Tank: Whose fault was that cluster ****.
Me: I had healing aggro on all the casters in that pull. They gibbed me.
Tank: Well learn to control your aggro better.
Bizarrely, we managed to finish the dungeon. In spite of the tank pulling repeatedly after I had to ask for a mana break, while I was sitting down drinking out of LoS of the new pull. I chalk it up to the reasonably competent DPS and the fact that regulars aren't really that rough. I spent most of the run hoping to get a vote kick, but I'm not the type to intentionally grief my teammates, so I kept healing, and the tank wasn't *QUITE* bad enough to completely prevent the team from finishing the dungeon.
This is not something I dont like to hear but whenever a hunter walks up to a mob in camo and drops a trap without using his launcher I cringe. Stam stackers make me cry but the worst one by far is, "Speed run, ok guys!" That inevitably leads to a chain pulling tank that cant keep aggro on anything. Also, one time I got a paladin tank who was in full PvP ret gear + a holy trinket and only two pieces of tank gear. He pulls the first mobs of ZA and we survive because of amazing hunter kiting. We ask him to please change his gear and I get, "I am doing these to get gear!" /facepalm. After asking him to leave a few times he starts spewing his BS about how we all have no life and its not his fault that his wife and kids make gemming hard or gearing up in normals. It was amusing since he is basically THE trade troll of my server (on 24/7 it seems.)
So my husband and I get into a ZA random. First pull I notice my tank is a bit on the squishy side and do an inspect, notice the greens and blues with a smatering of epics, little to no enchants etc. (yes it's possible to get into ZA/ZG with bad gear when the ilvl thingymagig inspects inventory etc sees other gear I've been told)
Being patient I know complaining isn't going to do any good anyhow, so we get to first boss. I cant keep the tank up at all. Then after 3 wipes I see "You have been removed from group", my husband told me the tank had me kicked for "Not doing my job"......so thusly he told the group have fun wiping with the tank and left.
But seriously first time I wanted to Nerd Rage after hearing that witht the tank so horribly geared and it was my fault I couldn't carry him through?? Grrrr
Been told to run around and avoid all the ghosts in think ZG. While also being by chains for the big guy. And when I cannot keep people up who think the white smoke is good. I mean it is white, and not flashy. Meaning it isn't bad. And the 30k spike. Just the ghosts using an instant ability right?
Tank: DPS needs to keep the ghosts off healer.
Warrior: It is hard to when I don't get any healing.
Me: You have to stay out off the white smoke. I cannot heal three people at once to keep them alive when they keep getting hit for 30k spikes.
Warrior: Then use AoE healing.
I tried that. Didn't work well.
Warrior: Learn to heal.
Me: learn to avoid everything that makes me have to heal you more than the tank. I am throwing out about 15k (with the shileding) and a 25k sheild on you which also heals for 9k. While adding in other heals. Look at your combat logs.
(There was no response.)
I left after the next wipe.
"B REZ" while dying to stupid stuff during the fight or "REZ PLZ" before combat has even ended. Do I look like a druid? (we didn't have someone in the group who could either)
"I've never tanked before" Says the dps dk in a mix of unenchanted ungemmed greens and blues.
"because it's better than mine" when I asked why the priest in the group needed an agi staff.
Silence when you ask a logical question like why are they wearing x (usually with useless stats etc on it) or why they are not using *ability* in the rotation because it would help.
Just now... Start of Sethekk Halls
*Tank runs into mob then stands on the edge watching whilst dps flail about and I heal like a madwoman*
Me: I'm 25% mana WANNA TANK NOW?!
*Tank stands, group wipes*
-everyone runs back to corpses except tank-
Tank: Gonna res me failpriest?
I buff and heal everyone, we try again. Tank does some minor swipes at the mob and continues to stand. I drop down to minimal health keeping DPS alive, shooting myself a quick heal or two and renew. Meanwhile nothing but static from the dps, suspect they are dead.
Me: Tank, do you know your role?! Why the heck aren't you keeping aggro??
Tank: It's my job to DRAW aggro. Not KEEP aggro. Lrn2ply.
-You have been removed from the group-
*facedesk* *lose faith in humanity* *cook noodles and comfort eat*
