sunday confessional 10/26/08

confession: sometimes i want to use utensils to seriously mame people.

ok, so you know how when people are searching for an answer about something or an opinion on a specific topic and they ask you because of what they perceive to be your expertise in a given you give them your very best information in good faith...then they look at you and say, "no, i'm pretty sure you're wrong. i looked it up on the internet and you're waaay off"? well, that makes me want to stab a fork in their eyes.

seriously, what is it with people? i mean, don't waste your breath asking me a question if you're just going to immediately pull out your citation list (that's three pages long) so you can attempt to prove me wrong. what is the point of this exercise? don't ask me a question that you already know the answer to. i have one word for you -- shenanigans.

That never happens to me! **cough, cough** I love how they want to argue with you after you answer. It reminds me of when people say, "Here, try this, it tastes aweful!"

i am not your mom said...

don't forget "here, smell this. doesn't it smell like something is rotting?"

That same thing happens to me. I guess some people always have to be right. When I start to see that trend in people I just start pretending I NEVER know the answer.
