While I’ve contemplated whether I should write this article or not, I have ultimately decided it was necessary. And not because it’s something you need to hear, but because it’s something I NEED to get off my chest. There are often those people you encounter and wonder to yourself ‘why the fuck do I have to sit here and listen to the bullshit coming out of this guy’s mouth?’ Well, unfortunately, I am often forced to listen to exaggerated stories that ultimately change with each interception in the conversation, thanks to someone I’d rather not name.
The thing is, I almost always feel bad for people and attempt to understand where they’re coming from and why people are so rude or ignore them. And that’s exactly what I did to get myself into this situation… along with working alongside him at the same company, which trust me, was not a decision I made.
This man is also one who knows everything, which I find quite odd considering how much I know, which is everything. Okay, fine, so I don’t know everything, but I’d like to feel that I’ve definitely researched some stuff and had one up on him, but apparently my facts are inaccurate. Well, not just my facts, but those coming from CNN, BBC, and other sources of unreliable media. I can’t believe how incredibly stupid I have been and was unaware of until this man happened to point out my lacking devotion to the truth.
And to be quite honest, this wouldn’t be quite as aggravating if he didn’t refuse to stop talking. I really feel he keeps dialogue streaming from his mouth to sound cool or somehow show that he has some valuable information or wealth of knowledge coming….up….next. But, no. Just noise that goes on and on and on and keeps me from working and instead, concentrating on how much I wish he were an Avox (reference to ‘The Hunger Games’: Avoxes have their tongues removed). Well, he’s telling me a story now, so let me step back into reality and try to make sense of the amazing story about something miraculous that happened to him in life that ironically brought him to know something better than me, when I stated that our economy wasn’t looking so good.
