Tuesday Hatred of “Yeah, right!”
I hate people who are structurally nonplussed. They are like walking cold showers. I would very much like to give each and every one of them a golden shower in return.
- A: I really like that painting. B: Yeah, right! Let her first show she can make a boring photographic reproduction of a vase with flowers, then we’ll know whether she can really paint. Maybe.
- A: This person has a good idea about handling poverty. B: Yeah, right! Let her first earn a couple of billion dollars and eradicate polio in Afghanistan like Bill Gates, then I’ll listen to her advise. After listening to Bill’s.
- A: Finishing a first draft of my novel really gives me a sense of accomplishment. B: Yeah, right! You had better first manage to convince a large volume publisher to carry the title before you feel anything but shame about spending your time on such an egoistical endeavor. And, by the way, your sentences are too long and the plot unravels too slowly (if you can call it a plot in the first place, nobody even dies).
- A: That movie made me feel really good. B: Yeah, right! As if you feeling good is more important than eradicating world hunger.
- A: Let’s try that for a change. B: Yeah, right! We cannot even deal with what we have and there you are again with a change. People need stability in order to be efficient, you know, and you are making them all so excited that they don’t even realize how inefficient they already were.
B: What we need is for people to do some hard work and focus on their job at hand. We need them to put their heads down and realize nobody is going to save them if they don’t save themselves. A: Nope, wrong!. Just look at the miserable piece of boring shit you are, the only thing you have achieved is infecting others with the belief that you are the true standard of achievement.
That, and anything running software that needs me to actively upgrade it or causes me to pay for other software that will ensure that the first software keeps on running or causes me to rely on things that suddenly vanish as if they never were. Gates may or may not have single-handedly eradicated polio in Afghanistan but he has certainly also legalized annoying many of us with problems that are unsolvable without spending a lot more money on what created the problem in the 1st place.
Sorry but in the true Xmas spirit I could not resist repeating stuff that has been going on for ages just for the sake of some tradition that has as its only virtue that it is a tradition.
Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
