Know it All’s: Why must you one up everything that is said or have an answer to everything? You do know its ok, and normal to be wrong or not know everything about everything. I know you are smart and you do most likely know alot, but have you ever realised that it is impossible for me to have a decent conversation with you because you cannot listen. I get that you are smart, but at the end of the day, your are ifrustrating and down right annoying to be around, did you know that?
Ageist: I was brought up to respect my elders, and I do. But when will the tables be turned? I could seriously scream if I hear “These young one’s” one more time. I am 24. I am not on drugs, I smart with my money, and I like to have fun. Just like you did when you were my age too. What gives people the right to be rude and nasty towards young people? If you bite at me, for no good reason, other than just to feel good about yourself and to put me down, I will bite back. I may be young but I am also an adult who does not deserve to be looked upon just because I am 24.
OMG what a week. As you can see, major rant above. I have never met one person in my life who has grinded my gears this much, both a know it all and ageist. I gave her a compliment today, saying she was great at her job… her reply “well thanks, but you don’t know, I’ve got 25 more years exprience than you”….
*me = facepalm*
Working in an industry where everyone is older than you, you get the ageist thing alot. It really bugs, and I always keep my mouth closed, but today I could actually feel myself snapping because I had the “know it all” and “ageist” all in one. A rare find. I could write a novel from the last 3 days of interactions with this women (who thank god leaves Friday). I wouldn’t wish her upon my worst enemy lol.
What have been some dealings you have had with people like this? And give me your comebacks, I have a feeling I will need to use them over the next 2 days!!
