Most people saw me sitting by myself when I went to my vo-tech in high school. I was home schooled during the morning, then went to my tech school in the early afternoon. Of course, I was the only home schooled girl in my class, and all the public school girls brought their drama. They talked about things that were too much to say in such company. Needless to say, I was not interested in listening to their unsavory discussions, so I asked my teacher if I could sit off on my own and listen to music on my phone. I didn’t make a lot of friends with girls in my class. I was actually friendly with several kids who weren’t in my class, but were in my Skills USA group. They talked about similar topics with me, and were smarter than my fellow classmates and more polite.
I’ve never been patient with stupid/uncultured people. My father’s tendencies (which he passed onto me) do not allow for that. With a few exceptions, I don’t really work with stupid people. All my siblings are like me; some to lesser extents, but they still have it. We practice on each other to sharpen our repartee and our sardonic wit. At my restaurant, I have to deal with stupid customers, not stupid coworkers. However, when I go to the dentist, I pray that the front desk won’t f*ck up my doctor’s schedule. If they do, that’s when I pray to God to give me the strength not to kill them, and to protect my IQ level.
The meme that’s above? I found it while just looking for funny quotes to make me laugh. I showed it to my younger sister, who is just as ruthless as I am, and she burst out cackling. Sometimes that’s all it takes to lift my spirit if I’m feeling down. Laughter is a medicine in and of itself. Sarcasm is just a specific type of antibiotic for life.
And on that note, it’s been real!
