Being "better" than someone else
You know what I hate? When someone knows something, or does something that not many people do, and they think they're better than you. I've run into many people like that before, from people who do that because they play a sport, to people who do that because you've only played the game they obsess over once. It irritates me because I know that just because they know a few things I don't I know a few things they don't. For example, I met someone who travels all over Europe during the summer (probably a typical rich asshole, who thinks he's better than me because he has more money). I told him that I fly planes as a hobby and am thinking of taking it up as a career by following it through college. Well he started talking about how he goes to Europe every summer, and how he knew so many things about the Europeans. I was thinking to myself, "and from the looks of you, they probably hate your guts every time you come over there." He then started going off about how he studies at this prestigious magnet school or some bullshit. I about punched him. Seriously. What is wrong with this world where we feel the need to be better than someone. I have never thought that I am smarter, or better off than someone because I do something they don't. I'm very modest when it comes to other people. Tell me what you guys think about this issue, or any previous experience we these kind of people. This was just a quick little rant I thought up with while out and about today. Remember everyone: Stay Gold.
