Stupid is as stupid does.

Phone call home to my dad today (well, truth be told, I call him everyday, but this is an excerpt from today):

Dad, maybe you can just clarify this for me, but will I really have to deal with BS for the rest of my life? I thought just maybe that since I graduated from college, maybe, in graduate school, I might deal with MATURE and GROWN-UP people, but I guess I'm wrong. So really, will this be how the rest of my life is?

...Today was a good day, although the end, at class tonight, was a reality check for me. Sometimes I think my optimism can bite me in the butt (I can't think of any other phrase! :P). I've realized that while I may choose who I consider a close friend and the people I spend most of my time with, for the rest of my life, there will always be people who I have to interact with who on occasion drive me a little crazy.

Tonight was just one of those nights when it hit me, and it was kind of a bummer. There will always be people who don't grow up, despite the fact that many of us grow up far before we should. Maturity does not necessarily come with age.

...and while I do genuinely like 99.9% of people and I try to be open-minded (and I will also give the people who drove me a little crazy tonight 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and millionth chances if it comes down to it), I have to toss these quotes out there:

"Don't waste my time, cause I'll never get that back." -Nnnenna

"I hate stupidity." -Chris and Dad...perhaps it's a family motto?

I really do hate wasting my time, and I also hate stupidity. (FYI as far as I'm concerned, stupidity has nothing to do with actual intelligence. In fact, I know a couple extremely intelligent people who I would consider stupid in some respects).

Long story short, I don't want to be judgmental, but the truth is, that's the heart of this post. It's been a long day, I'm tired, and I'm venting. This is momentary judgment on my part, and I'm not necessarily proud of it, but at the same time, every now and then I have a day where this is how I feel. Tomorrow, I may feel different.

In other news, I have a kid who wore a fedora to school last week.
