The power of words is not to be underestimated. I work with words, and I have coined many phrases that my coworkers now associate with me. I have a reason for why I say them, and I’m pretty sure if I look back through my memory, I could find when I quoted them.
Phrase #1: I hate humanity – now, when I say that, I don’t hate all humanity. When I say that, I only apply it to stupid people. Regretfully, it seems to apply to the majority of people.
Phrase #2: Never underestimate the stupidity of humanity – this phrase spouted out of my mouth probably from working in the restaurant. I always tell my coworkers that when they are baffled by stupid people. It fits! It’s poetic almost. You should use it sometime when somebody asks you why are people so dumb.
Phrase #3: Ah, mortals! – I just said that because I like to pretend I’m Loki, and he obviously looks down on mortals. Me? I look down on stupid people.
Now I know this probably makes me look like I hate people, but I don’t. I’m fine with humanity, it’s people I can’t stand ~ Linus Van Pelt.
And on that note, it’s been real!
