This phrase is a gem. One of my personal favorites. It’s nearly always said after you’ve already done something totally stupid. As in “Oh, last night I slept with that guy I broke up with 6 months ago.” To which your friends kindly respond with “You’re better than that.” Um. No I’m fucking not. If I were better than that, I wouldn’t have done it.
You know I’m right. I mean, what is the purpose of saying that to someone? Just to make them feel bad? Cause there is no other reason. It’s not like I’ve ever looked at someone who said that to me and responded with “Wow, thank you for saying that. I feel really loved right now.” No, the closest thing I’ve ever come to in response is more along the lines of “No, fucking shit I’m better than that. That’s why I’m spilling my guts to you, you fucking moron. So that I can confess the sins of stupidity, seek redemption and move the fuck on. But now that you’ve pointed out how stupid my decision was, let me jump in my god damn time machine and go fix it. Thanks for your insight.”
Yeah, that phrase really bothers me.
Yeah, I guess that phrase is more appropriate for children who do stupid things…. I will stop saying it to you 🙂
I’d appreciate that. LOL. OR, since you’re usually privy to the stupid act I’m about to commit… maybe you could say it BEFORE I do it. I could almost deal with hearing it before hand, thus potentially eliminating my desire to move forward. Potentially.
Ok, I changed my Gravatar, and I want to see if this works because I hate the image associated with me.
Oh good, you figured it out. You can do mine when you come down. 😀
