But Know what I've discovered? I cannot stand people who are spoiled. Not "mommy buys me everything I ever want" spoiled. The more subtle kind. Like when people are really picky eaters just because they never tried different types of food. Or when people make faces at a room that is not perfectly clean, or get offended over the drop of a pin.
I guess spoiled is not the word I'm looking for. It's more like sheltered. I realize how ridiculous it is too; it's probably not their fault. They've probably been raised in a very clean household with parents who never pushed them to do anything they didn't want to. But still. Every time someone makes a face at me for eating cream of mushroom soup, I kind of just want to pour the hot soup into their lap and tell them to suck it.
It only gets worse when they cry. Usually, I'm a pretty supportive person if a friend is at the point where they are crying. I tell jokes and tell them it'll get better, promise revenge, the whole nine yards. But I've realized something; it really depends on what they are crying about.
You see, I find it really hard to sympathize with somebody whose had it easier than I have. For example:
A semi-friend of mine recently told me a story from middle school. We'd often talked about how much we hated middle school, but I never really asked why. Then, in tears, she "confides" that she once had a best friend who (shockingly) betrayed her and started hanging out with an enemy of hers. This happened in middle school, and she didn't have a best friend again "for like three months" after that.
After she finished her harrowing tale, I was literally speechless. All I could think was, "Uh... that's it?" Of course I didn't say that, but my reaction was insincere at best.
Ugh. I know this is hypocritical. Probably 90% of the members on this site could read my journal entries and say the same thing to me, that my problems aren't bad.
But at least in day-to-day life, I don't pretend to be a victim. My life hasn't been easy, but I still have an amazing life. Most people do. I just hate people who forget that.
Also, when girls wear bump-its. That shit is ugly.
